blanche the dog

Hi, I’m Blanche and I am a four-year-old Chihuahua (maybe with a hint of Pug?). I have a tan coat, white socks, white markings on my tail and the back of my neck, brown on my ears and muzzle (with a touch of gray), and brown eyes. Twice a day and eat a mix of kibble with homemade dog food and a Greenie for dessert. I tend to be a little skittish around new people/dogs, but I really just want to be loved. Once I know you, I love you fiercely. I haven’t been around cats yet so it is hard to say as to how I would act around them. I am quite feisty (and a little snarky) the first time I meet a dog, but after the 2nd or 3rd time, I warm up and even try to play a little. I like being part of a pack - I have a small group of dogs that I see frequently, and I feel like one of the gang now. At the moment, I do not have any special medical needs. When I am home alone or just wanting to go to sleep, I go in different beds throughout my foster’s house. I like to be somewhere near my foster mom, so I also like to hang out in the bean bag chair in the living room or outside in the yard, and if I sit nicely and wait, I get some couch privileges to get a little snuggle time in. I LOVE to go on walks. I walk 4 miles with my foster sister every morning. However, I don’t like bikes or loud cars, but I’m getting better at not reacting to them. I am 99% house trained; I’ve had a couple of accidents but that was at the beginning when I first went to my foster home. I want a home where I feel safe and loved and where there is structure and a daily routine I can get used to. I’m okay being on my own for hours at a time but once my foster mom/dad is home, I will follow them around wagging my tail and asking for attention. I can’t wait to meet you! Xo, Blanche
