Looking for a dog with some spunk? Look no further!! This little dynamo has energy to spare, smarts to equal her energy and abundant comical personality!!
Little Zinga was found as a stray, emaciated and full of fleas. Sadly no one came forward to claim this little cutie, so ZinZin is in foster with Animal Placement Bureau. After being completely vetted, and rehabilitated, she is ready to find her perfect forever home. It is thought that Zin is a 7- 8 month old Chihuahua or Chihuahua mix. She weighs around 8 lbs., is spayed, heartworm negative, has had all her shots, and is microchipped. She does have luxating patella in her left rear leg which is a common affliction in the Chihuahua breed. Her vet did not feel that it will require surgery, but Zin will sometimes lope on three legs. Her walking and running gaits seem normal. She is still a puppy so the kneecap may become more stable as she gets good nutrition, gains muscle, and gets exercise.
Zin is crate trained and house trained and knows a few tricks, most of which she learned within a day’s time! She is extremely smart and very much a problem solver. Any new owner will need to be able to think one step ahead of her!! Zin also LOVES to run and has shown quite the ability to play Frisbee. She gets so excited over these chase type games that she quivers!! She is a very intense and focused little girl when it comes to playing fetch or Frisbee, and could maybe even be taught agility. However, the limiting factor on any of these activities will be how stable her kneecap becomes in time.
