My name is Babygirl! Let me tell you about little ol’ me. I am a 2 year old Chiweenie from Texas. As you can see from my photos, I have gorgeous brown eyes (if I do say so myself). The best thing about me is that I love all people. I have been told that I am a great kisser and an amazing cuddler.
When I was down in Texas, I didn’t understand that the people were trying to help me. It took them 2 weeks to catch me and then I spent another 2 months in this place called a shelter. Before I knew it things started to look up for me….. a ride to Canada and now I have a foster family that takes great care of me.
I am very affectionate and will freely give you kisses. I like to be your shadow and will follow you wherever you go, even in the car. I like to walk and explore but can also appreciate chilling and soaking up some rays. Sometimes I do like a bit of alone time, usually spent sleeping on the couch (even at night).
Although I love people, I need practice trusting other dogs and being away from my family. I have had a lot of changes in my life and sometimes change is scary so I get uneasy when I am alone. I sure would appreciate a home where I can spend lots of time with you. My foster mom is working on crate training me to keep me out of trouble when she isn’t home. I use pee pads but still might have the occasional accident. Oh, and my foster mom calls me a Door Dasher so they are very careful with open doors. What can I say? I am pretty quick.
I am patiently waiting for my forever family. Do you think you could open your home to me? This transition hasn’t been easy for me, but I know that the right person will be patient with me and help me to come out of my shell. I can promise to furever be your snuggle buddy.
PS. I love belly rubs. 😊
Medical Note: Babygirl was given Pro Heart 12 on January 21, 2022 (this medication protects against heartworm disease for 12 months) and therefore only requires Nexguard each month for flea/tick prevention until December 2022. For January 2023, she will require a new prescription of Nexguard and Heartguard or Advantage Multi for year-round ongoing preventative treatment. Babygirl has been treated for heartworm infection and therefore must remain on heartworm preventatives year-round for the rest of her life to prevent re-infection.
All dogs available for adoption with Second Chance Animal Rescue Windsor-Essex come fully vaccinated, including lepto, spayed/neutered, microchipped, and heartworm tested (and are on heartworm/flea preventative while in our care). At adoption, adopters receive a 6-week free trial of pet insurance.
SCAR cannot adopt animals to the United States and we can only adopt within a 200 km radius of Windsor, Ontario. Please do not apply if you do not live in Ontario, within 200 kms of Windsor.
