Say hello to MAMACITA. Mamacita is an 8 year old chihuahua who was owned by a backyard breeder. We can't even hazard a guess at how many puppies she may have birthed in her time as a breeder dog. When she was finally retired, someone stuffed her with an unhealthy diet and the result is a 10 lb chihuahua who should probably weight 6-7 lbs. This sweet gentle girl needs a furever home with an adopter who cares enough to help her achieve a healthy body weight so she can enjoy a happy healthy life as a treasured family member. Mamacita has lived her life indoors and is pee pad trained. She's starting to work on housebreaking in her foster home. Stepping on grass was a whole new experience for Mamacita. She has never been alone, Mamacita needs a furever home with at least one small, laid back, friendly dog. Mamacita is cat friendly. If you'd like to meet Mamacita and show her how sweet life can be, please fill out a foster-to-adopt application at

All of our fully-vetted adoptable dogs go to prospective homes for a one-week trial foster-to-adopt period to make sure the dog and home are the right fit before an adoption is finalized. We only adopt dogs into homes where all current pets are spayed/neutered and current on vaccines and heartworm and flea and tick prevention. We do check veterinary references to make sure adopters are compliant with standard veterinary care.
