When this little long-haired Chihuahua arrived at our shelter on 1/16/19, we were told she was 'about a week away from having pups.' We kept a vigilant eye on her and had a staff member coming in every night to check on her. We wanted to be there to help her once the big moment arrived but Wicket took matters into her own hands and, in the three hour window between staff visits, she whelped two little pups on 1/20/19. Wicket was an awesome mom to her pups until they were old enough to be adopted. Now it's her turn to venture out into the world and become part of a loving household where SHE will be the one being doted on and cared for! Wicket's estimated date of birth is January 2017 so she has a whole lot of years ahead of her. She also has the high energy and mischievous nature of a young dog so keep this in mind if you prefer a calmer, more sedate dog to be your buddy. Wicket's worst habits (at least that we've witnessed) are her tendency to run out any door as soon as it's opened and her penchant for barking when she wants your attention or is unhappy at being left alone. At eleven pounds, Wicket's small enough to accompany you everywhere that dogs are allowed but her small stature does not lend itself to being a good choice for households where young children live or frequently visit. She's just so darn cute that it would be hard for a child to resist the urge to pick her up and squeeze her which could end up with the child getting a corrective nip from Wicket. A home with pre-teens or teenagers would be a much better fit for this pint-sized dynamo. Wicket loves her leash walks and we think she'd love having a small fenced yard to run around and play in for a bit in nice weather. To find out if Wicket would be a good choice for you and your household, just stop by the shelter and ask to meet her.
