Tess is an adorable 14 year-old Chihuahua/Pomeranian mix spayed female who was shelter-bound with her two younger canine companions after her owner lost her home. Fortunately, a good Samaritan intervened and offered to foster Tess and her pals while looking for a rescue to give them all a second chance. Once we heard about their plight, we offered to take all 3 and and find them perfect new homes. We would never have guessed that Tess is 14 years-old as she looks and acts much younger than that. Other than her teeth which were in horrible condition when she arrived, she looks to be in excellent health. Since her arrival with us, Tess has had extensive dental work including many extractions. She is now feeling so much better and is eating like a champ. This little lady has a great appetite and really looks forward to mealtime! Tess gets along very well with other dogs but would likely be fine in her new home as an only dog as long as her family has plenty of time to spoil and pamper her. She has excellent crate manners and would likely pick up the house rules quickly in her new home. Tess is very friendly with everyone she meets and loves being held and cuddled. She may have more years behind her than ahead of her but the love of a senior dog is unmatchable and something to experience. The person or family who gives this sweet girl a wonderful home is going to be so happy they did! Tess weighs about 10 pounds and her adoption fee is $150. 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 info@caninelifeline.org if you’re interested in Tess. 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 72 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.
