Chihuahua - Adult - Female
Adoptable Small Neutered/SpayedRoutine shots are current

Ruth is about 1.5 yr old, 10 lb. female chihuahua mix that was picked up as a stray and brought to Dogwood after being hit by a car. She is a couple week post major orthopedic surgery for a broken leg. She has done very well and has shown that an injured leg will not bring her down. She wants to run and is very curious in her surroundings.

She walks well on a leash but does need more socialization with other people as she seems to be a little fearful of others. Her foster family is working on this. Training has been slow due to her leg but she has now learned to sit on command and has done terrific with potty training. She loves to cuddle but also stays and sleeps very well in her Xpen.
