Rosa ~ 1 year old Chihuahua cross JRT ~ Female ~ $400

This little lady here is Rosa, now don’t be fooled by her sweet face and small size. She has a huge personality and attitude to match!

While Rosa is the sweetest little thing, she does have a serious case of small dog syndrome, you may have heard of it before. It’s very common in small dogs who think they are 40 plus kilos and can conquer the world. Without a doubt this little lady certainly could! Rosa has a few favourite things she doesn’t really like to share, the main one being her favourite humans lap. Her bed, toys, food, treats, sometimes even water bowls are also something this lady does not like to share.

Since being in foster care she has learnt to share with her foster siblings and her manners have very much improved, but she will still try take anyone on if they dare touch her things.

Once rules have been established and Rosa is told that not everything belongs to her, she will be fine. She does love to cuddle up with her 40kg foster brother and will happily share her foster humans lap with her foster sister. Rosa is very cheeky and does like to steal toys, socks, underwear, door stops and well anything really, to hide away in her bed to chew on later when no one is watching. As she is so small, it is very easy to place things out of her reach!

Rosa can be scared of other dogs when she first meets them, but once she gets to know them she is quite happy to hang out and play with any size dogs but does prefer a friend that is the same size as her. In her forever home Rosa MUST have another dog to hang out with, preferably male. Rosa does not cope on her own for long periods and will need a friend to keep her company. She is cat friendly and will be happy to live with a cat as well.

Rosa will need a quiet forever home, one with older children (over 12 years) or preferably none. A home that doesn’t have frequent guests or parties as she really does not cope with too many strangers or noises all at once. She will growl at strangers if she feels uncomfortable, she has never bitten anyone but we have never put her in a situation where she might.

Rosa is crate trained, toilet trained, knows how to sit, walks well on the lead, travels well in the car and doesn’t mind a swim or a bath.

Rosa is also desexed, microchipped and up to date with her vaccinations, flea and worming treatments.

Microchip number: 956000010283307
