The enchanting Ms. Koa. Koa is a kind and loving Chihuahua.
She is irresistably adorable. She is crazy about pretzel nuggets. She will do anything for Greenies.
Koa is a steadfast confidant to humans (even though she sometimes loves going to the groomers WAY more than necessary).
But then it happened; Koa's human did not have enough money to take care of her. So the human sadly surrendered poor Koa to the shelter, where she waits patiently for a Rescue Hero.
But Koa, like all dogs, does not dwell on the past. She lives in the present and wags her tail for the future. Koa is a high energy dog. Koa's incredible poise makes her the ultimate family pup for high-energy humans. Koa is often a little excited around cats . We recommend a home where she'll get tons of attention.
She is basically house broken, but will have accidents if left alone for too long.
Things You Should Know Before Adopting Koa
Koa is a high energy Chihuahua. Be ready to give this pup lots of attention. Also, each dog breed has certain traits. Knowing a little bit about your pup's individual personality and breed personality will give you some clues about how to care for your pup.
There's a lot of Chihuahua in this Shelter Pup!
Friendliness: Chihuahuas may look small and timid but these pups have confidence and attitude. They are proud, graceful, and dainty. The Chihuahua's favorite activity is being held by their favorite human. This pup may even do tricks to get your attention! Make sure you save plenty of time for your Chihuahua and never leave him alone for long periods of time.
Grooming: Chihuahuas can have long or short hair. Short haired Chihuahuas are low maintenance and only require an occasional grooming. Unlike many other long-haired breeds, long-haired Chihuahuas require no trimming and minimal grooming.
Health: Chihuahua are very healthy but also very tiny. Because they are so small it is important to help them stay safe -no jumping from high places or rough play with large dogs. Chihuahuas are also very sensitive to cold weather and should always be kept indoors.
Exercise: Chihuahuas may spend many lazy hours just laying around but they are still considered active dogs and require exercise. Because of their small size, simply running around your house gives them plenty of exercise!
