Hello, my name is Myla, and I am a beautiful adult female Chihuahua. All I want in the world is to be loved unconditionally and showered with affection like my fur sibs, but I am shy and very fearful of almost everything including loud noises, commotion, children, and men. I’m slowly getting better though, and thankfully foster mom has the patience of a saint! She has been wonderful about giving me time and space. I have even stopped retreating to my kennel for safety, now I hang out on the couch with my fur sibs, especially my fur sister with whom I love to cuddle!! In fact, not only am I now brave enough to chill on the couch, but I run into the other room with my sibs before seeking the safety of the couch; allow foster mom to pet me if she gets down on my level, and I even enjoy laying by her head when we’re on the couch watching TV. So, you can clearly see how much mom’s patience and understanding has helped me overcome some of my fears!
I love playing with my soft squeaker toys and barking as I toss them around and shake them. I also love to eat…especially treats. I still will not take food or treats from mom’s hand or eat in her presence, but make no mistake, I will promptly eat them if she puts them down in front of me. Mom says that for such a little dog I have a loud bark which makes me a great watch dog and I will alert her to anything I see outside so my new home should not have any shared walls. I will, however, need to have a fenced yard to keep me safe since I am terrified of almost everything and the leash makes me frantic. Though I have not met any cats, I do well with other like-sized dogs and will need a small companion (preferably female) who can help me learn how to be a dog and overcome some more of my fears. Mom doesn’t need to kennel me because I’m so great about using potty pads even when she’s gone and having free reign of the house has been pretty amazing!
Anyway, despite my fears I am a happy and silly little girl who loves to welcome my family home with a tail wag, and I have an enormous heart that is brimming with love! Now all I need is to find a loving and patient furever family who will help me successfully become the amazing girl I’m destined to be. Please be my new family, I promise I’m worth it and I will love you more than you could ever possibly imagine! Love, Myla
