Hi, my name is Billy Jean!
Adult Medium Female
Chihuahua / Mixed
This sweet smiling face belongs to Billy Jean! She is a chihuahua mix of about 5 years of age with a distinctive brown/fawn coat and cute white outlined features on her gentle face!
This special girl is very smart and is picking up on her basic commands. She can walk well on a leash, and is also crate trained and housebroken. In fact, her foster mom reports that she is so good inside that she doesn't need to be crated much during day!
Billy Jean is full of life, love and affection! She will have ALL eyes on you, and follow you around like a little shadow! She can be a little timid when you reach to pet her. Her past is unknown, but she may have experienced abuse in the past and may need some extra nurturing and patience while she learns to trust her new humans. A quiet household with older kids and not a lot of wild loud activity would be a good home environment for her.
All of this, however, does not stop her from having an almost permanent smile and being friendly to humans, dogs, and cats alike! Her foster mom strongly believes that in time, Billy will be open and able to enjoy all levels of caring and tenderness shown to her.
Billy Jean adores her foster fur siblings, and will do terrific in a house with the bonus of doggy company and playtime, preferably in a yard! She has so much going for her, and now that she is in loving hands, her future is set to be even more promising. Could it be with you? Apply to adopt her today!
Billy Jean is available for pre-adoption only at this time, as she is heartworm positive. Heartworm disease is a non-contagious and treatable condition in dogs, but is fatal if left untreated.
