Plenty of Pets

Miss B is a Chihuahua mix weighing who is about 10 years old and weighs 11 pounds.

She loves being close to her people, snuggling on a chair, sleeping in bed, going for a walk and riding in the car. She hates being alone, so she’s waiting for a family where someone will be home most of the time.

Miss B is house and leash trained and is a laid-back girl.

She’s good with other dogs but needs a home that is free of cats or children.

An attempt was made to spay Miss B and have a dental done but she didn’t respond well to anesthetic. The dental was partially completed but the spay couldn’t be done.

She is vaccinated, treated for parasites, and microchipped. She comes with 30-days of free pet insurance courtesy of 24PetWatch. Her adoption fee is $200.
