Moonpie the Shy Chiweenie – ADOPTED
Adoption pending! 6/22/2017 Found on @thedogmatchmaker’s Instagram!
6/13/17: In foster care, looking for adopter. 3 years old, 13 lbs, good with dogs (may be fine with cats). Female Terrier Mix, possibly a Chiweenie (Chihuahua/Dachshund).
Meet adorable little raspberries-and-cream-flavored-Moonpie, in foster care with our Executive Director Sarah in Brooklyn, shown here with Sarah’s adopted pups @ozzieandtheaussie.
Sarah says, “She’s totally gentle and chill, dog friendly, probably cat friendly, and just wants to hang in cozy spaces, including your lap. Moonpie is quite timid at first and gets a little shakey in new situations, so she needs time to warm up when she moves in to a new home. After a week or two, she will adjust and relax, by learning the lay of the land. She is learning how to walk on leash – definitely a work in progress since she just wants to stand still. We’re working on potty training / wee wee pads, and she needs more practice with that. She literally would not harm a fly, and has no desire to destroy anything, sleeps well at night, and curls into a ball on her doggy bed.”
Moonpie was rescued earlier this year by Friends with Four Paws, from a hoarder in Oklahoma. She had full dental work a couple months ago, and is healthy – with sparkly white teeth!
Thanks to Den Dog Beds for donating her cushy denim bed, which she will bring with her to her forever home – to ease the transition from foster care!
