About Thumbelina

  • Status: Adopted!
  • Species: Dog
  • Rescue ID: 11-0131
  • Current Size: 10 Pounds
  • Current Age: 4 Years 5 Months (best estimate)

Thumbelina is tiny golden blonde chihuahua stray from Porterville, CA. She is a sweet and gentle little girl with a very happy nature. She loves being held and cuddled and would be an excellent companion dog. Thumbelina is very playful in a quiet way and enjoys chasing and playing with other little dogs, but she does have a habit of guarding her favorite human, so she would prefer to be the only dog at home. She is very clean and neat, but needs some help with housebreaking. Thumbelina is quite smart and comes when called and quickly learns her basics. She loves her little doggy bed and does well in a crate although she would much rather be on your lap! She will definitely warm your heart with her little smile!

Thumbelina is spayed, microchipped, and up to date on shots.
