Meet Twinkie!
Say "Hi" to Twinkie! Just like one of your favourite all time desserts, Twinkie is deliciously wonderful, in a lot of ways! She is a small 5 lb blonde chihuahua, (of COURSE similar to creamy filling of a Twinkie!) with the added cuteness of one floppy ear, and one up right ear! Twinkie is currently in a foster home, who has praised her from day one! She is full of energy, in spurts, is learning to walk on her leash like a pro, and gets along great with the other dogs in foster household. Twinkie mostly loves to be close to her humans, snuggling, touching and cuddling any part of body she can touch! She listens when her name is called, enjoys chew toys, and can hold her own when it comes to rough house-playing with bigger dogs. Twinkie could best be described as a true companion dog, and will do best in a house hold with a family who is home more frequently, or has other dogs to keep her active and content. This little girl can be a little tart Twinkie at times too! A fenced yard must be checked, because she likes to try to chase any animal around perimeter, be it cat, or squirrel, and even tries to escape to chase! She can bark when meeting a new face, coming into "her home", but makes friends after 5 minutes. Twinkie will also need assistance and patience with crate training, as she still isn't used to that element, quite yet. This sweet girl is ready to meet everyone and find herself her "furever home", whether it's in a house with secure yard, or an apartment with owner who has time to dedicate to Twinkie, as much as she is ready to dedicate to them! If your interested, contact DPA, directly, or look/ask about Twinkie at an upcoming meet and greet! Twinkie 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.
