Comments: Nacha and her sister, Niñez, were an unwanted litter from a family with unaltered pets. After the family agreed to spay and neuter, we agreed to help these girls find their forever homes. We know their mother was a Chihuahua mix, but their loud barks and shrieks tell us there is likely some Schnauzer or terrier in there somewhere. We are not sure what their adult size will be, but they will likely be on the larger side of small. Nacha will not be placed in a home with her sister (they are already showing signs of littermate syndrome), but she absolutely must have another dog in her forever home who can tolerate the extremely high energy level of this growing puppy. Both these girls are very undersocialized and are nervous with new people and new situations. Her people will need to be prepared for the level of training required to bring her out of her shell and the boundless energy this little girl has. Neither of these two sisters would be appropriate for first-time dog owners. A puppy class would do wonders for her confidence and socialization. Nacha is a very busy little girl, and though she will tolerate being held and cuddled for a short bit, she’s quickly ready to move onto the next exciting thing she can find to get into. She may grow to be a lapdog some day, but by her drive and energy level, we would guess that day is a long way off! If you have the love of puppies and the energy and patience to keep up with this little one required to give her the forever home she deserves, please fill out an application to meet Nacha today!
