With her elegant ears, large dark eyes and expressive eyebrows, Brandy is almost like a cartoon come to life.
This young lady came into the care of CCRT after being surrendered by her owner.
After gaining a few much-needed ounces, Brandy is the picture of health and is learning how things work around the home.
Her pee pad training is really coming along, and her accidents are down to almost zero. She even managed to use the pee pad at a strangers house after being shown where it was! Smart girl. Like many Chihuahuas, she does not love the idea of going outside to do her business, but she will walk nicely on a leash. In terms of being left alone, the longest stretch she’s been by herself has been 3 to 4 or hours, which she seemed to tolerate well.
Brandy doesn’t tend to play with other dogs, but nor is she aggressive with them, preferring to play with her toys instead. She tends to avoid cats if possible, but doesn’t seem aggressive toward them, just wary.
As far as humans go, Brandy is a typical Chihuahua and loves to shadow her human, always making sure they’re within her line of sight. She loves snuggling on laps and sleeping in bed with her human. She will sometimes snarl if she doesn’t want to be moved, but hasn’t bitten anyone.
She loves treats but will not accept them from strangers, preferring to get to know them first, which sometimes takes a few days.
She has improved her food manners at home with her foster family and has stopped stealing food from peoples’ hands while they are trying to eat, but her habit of begging at the table is still a work in progress.
Brandy loves to play fetch with a small stuffed toy. She will tire her human out long before she herself gets tired. She is a fast runner and jumper needing no help to jump on a couch or bed when it’s time for a nap or some snuggles.
We’re looking for a loving, patient family for Brandy, who can commit to some continued training with this puppy-ish gal. As she is a small dog, she should never be left unsupervised with small children. Ideally, Brandy would also be the only dog in a home, as she can be jealous and possessive when it comes to other dogs getting attention from her human.
If Brandy is the girl for you, please fill out an adoption application. You can purchase a sweater and/or blanket for him, or any of our other fosters dogs.
Please consider becoming a CCRT Sponsorship Angel for any of our fosters by making a cash donation towards their care.

We are interested and would like more information please.
Please stay tuned to her profile for updates!
Hi I’m very interested in this wee girl when she is available.
Just keep an eye on her profile for updates and we’ll share the news there.
I WOULD LIKE TO MEET BRANDY BEFORE I MAKE A COMMITMENT..WOULD THAT BE POSSIBLE?
A meet and greet is part of the adoption application process. If your application is chosen, you will have a chance to meet her so you both can decide how you feel about each other.
I’m on PEI and was wondering if you fly them out? I am looking for a small Chihuahua female. How are her teeth’s and general health. Is she potty trained.
Hi there, we don’t fly our dogs, however, your adoption application will still be considered even if you and your future furry family member live far apart. A “meet and greet” is mandatory and you will be responsible for all costs associated with getting to that meeting (i.e., gas, flights, hotels, meals, etc.) in the city where the foster dog is being cared for. If your application is approved and the dog must be transported to your home, you are fully responsible for all logistics and costs associated with that transport. If the transport involves flying the dog, the dog must fly in cabin (no cargo) in an airline approved soft sided carrier accompanied by the adopter. As her profile states, we are just getting to know her and will update her profile soon.
I have a rescued male chi/terrier mix and think he need a playmate. I would be interested in getting her to be friends with my Papi. He is my service dog and would get her to be one also.

Am interested in Beautiful Brandy. Owned 2 female Chihuahuas. Lost them both last year. One in July and one in November. They were both 13 years old. Not looking for a puppy. Have owned dogs all my life. The only thing that I question is that because I have always had 2 dogs at a time would that be a problem with Brandy as I do want to get another female chihuahua around the same age or just a little older. Could you also refresh me how you got her and her background. She is adorable and am very interested in her.
You can learn all about Brandy by reviewing her profile above. And, when you’re ready, you can apply to adopt her by completing our online application form here.
I also forgot to tell you that I live in Richmond Hill which is obviously not far from Woodbridge. It would not take me long for a meet and greet with Brandy Looking forward to hearing from you.
