Biscuit is one of a litter of nine 1.5 year-old Chihuahua/Pekingese mixes who were turned into an overcrowded county dog shelter by their owner. They were very frightened at the shelter and not likely to get adopted easily there so six of them made the trip to Canine Lifeline so they could relax in a foster home while they searched for permanent new homes (the other 3 went to another rescue). These dogs seem to have lived a sheltered life before coming into the shelter so their world was totally turned upside down with all the change. Biscuit has become very affectionate with her foster mom and is one of the bravest of the bunch. She likes to explore but also likes to snuggle and give kisses. We do want to place her in a home with another dog or two as she has always lived with dogs and would be lost as an only dog. She will need a kind and patient family who will give her the time she needs to feel comfortable in her new surroundings. She has done very well with crate-training in her foster home but will likely need to work on housetraining in her new home. Biscuit has a silly face with a charming underbite. Biscuit weighs about 15 pounds and her adoption fee is $250. She’s spayed, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea preventative, and microchipped. All Canine Lifeline adoptions come with a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email if you’re interested in Biscuit. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. We have no foster homes with young children so aren’t comfortable placing any of them in a home with children less than 7 years of age. We try to respond to inquiries within 48 hours so if you haven’t heard from us within that time frame, please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.
