Gracie is a 3.5-year-old Chihuahua that came into rescue in January 2011 from a shelter in Kentucky when she was rescued from a local puppy mill along with other dogs. At first Gracie was unsure of her surrounding and quite timid, but once she learned to trust her foster family she turned into a loving, affectionate girl.
Now that Gracie has a home to call her only - even if only temporary while she waits for a forver family - she has settled in wonderfully. She is house-trained, crate-trained and loves to go for walks, and her foster mom reports that she has wonderful leash manners.
Gracie loves to be with her humans, and even though she sleeps in her crate at night, she would also love to be able to have her own warm spot on the human bed. Despite being a quiet girl, she can also be quite playful, and enjoys spending time with the other small dogs in her foster home.
Because of Gracie's tiny stature and because we do not have any information on her past before she came into rescue, older, gentle children only will be considered; we do not recommend a home with small children for Gracie. She would love another small, friendly dog for companionship and a fenced yard to romp and play in.
If Gracie has stolen your heart and you are interested in adopting her, please submit an application through our website or send us an e-mail for more information. While you're at it, be sure to check out Gracie's foster-mate and friend from Kentucky, Sokki, who is also available for adoption!
