Flicka may tip the scales at only a tad bit over 4-lbs but this 1-year old Chihuahua is a mighty force to be reckoned with! She's like a little flea jumping all over the place - full of energy and kisses! Flicka's not much for sitting on laps - or sitting still, for that matter - but she's a very affectionate little gal. She just prefers to be moving as she gives you a quick kiss! Flicka also loves to eat and would probably eat her weight in dog food if we let her. We're pretty sure a lot of people are going to fall in love with Flicka (how could you NOT?!) In addition to being adorably cute and having tons of personality, Flicka is also very smart and quickly learned the 'routine' here at ACS. Flicka will need some work in the house-training department so make sure you have the experience, time and patience (not to mention a healthy budget for cleaning supplies) to tackle this issue. She's as cute as can be but "cute" wears off real fast when the dog isn't catching on to things as quickly as you had anticipated. Unfortunately, we weren't given much history on Flicka so we don't know with certainty on how she is with kids or cats. Since most cats are going to be bigger than her, we think Flicka is intelligent enough to weigh her options wisely. As for children, her tiny stature rules out a home where young children live or frequently visit. It wouldn't take much to seriously injure a dog as small as Flicka. There were other dogs in Flicka's previous home but we weren't told how she behaved around them. Any dogs in a potential adopters home would have to be under 10-lbs to minimize the risk of her getting hurt accidentally. We DO know that Flicka is a very loving little dog that will make some lucky adopter very happy! If you have room in your heart and home for Flicka, stop by the shelter soon and ask to meet her.
