Rosita just wants to have fun!  Her idea of heaven is being surrounded by toys to play with.  Her very favourites are the ones that squeak the loudest, and she will happily share them with you.  Her foster family says that Rosita is a joy to foster.

Rosita, a slender six-pound black Chihuahua, was found as a stray and transferred to CCRT by a shelter.  She is a gentle, very sweet, medium-energy dog.  Our veterinarian estimates her age at around six years, but she still acts like a playful youngster.

Besides her love of all things squeaky, exploring and romping around the backyard of her foster home is Rosita’s other favourite pastime, as well as trying to steal beans from the garden.  She considers them a delicacy

Rosita really enjoys her daily walks on leash, and she is doing well in her training to walk calmly without pulling.  Loud noises and large dogs frighten her, though.

A forever home with a securely fenced, safe backyard is a must for Rosita.  She is housetrained, (outside, not peepads).  Condo-living is unsuitable because she vocalizes when startled or when her human is out.  Rosita is not a fan of real alone-time and needs someone who is home most of the time, such as a retired person or someone who works from home.

Rosita loves to cuddle and be with her human, but she is not the stereotypical Chihuahua who needs to be “in arms” or doted on all the time.  She is friendly with strangers after initially barking at them.  She is respectful of other calm small dogs, but she is not comfortable with large dogs.  We are told that she is “a bit intrusive but friendly” with cats.  Any children in her forever home must be gentle and at least 10 years of age.

Rosita has had a heartworm test (negative) and a wellness exam by our veterinarian.  She has also been vaccinated, micro-chipped, spayed and had a dental.  Her luxating patellas, which are common in small-breed dogs, do not require surgery, just a healthy weight, moderate exercise and minimal jumping.

Only if you fit all of this description of Rosita’s ideal forever home and are interested in adopting her, please fill out an adoption application.  You can also purchase a sweater and/or blanket for her or any of our foster dogs.  Please consider becoming a CCRT Sponsorship Angel for any of our foster dogs by making a cash donation towards their care.
