ADORABLE Abby is an 11 year old chihuahua who reportedly weighs only 3.5 pounds. She’s an itty bitty girl. Sadly, Abby’s lifetime human passed away not long ago, she is in need of an adoptive home very soon.

It seems that Abby has not had any vet care in recent years, if ever. Her caretaker will be taking her in for an exam as well as vaccines and a nail trim. This is helpful but we have been told Abby really needs a dental. Her adopter should be willing and able to afford a dental and regular vet care. It appears she is “healthy” but one can’t know that without vetting. We’d like to think Abby has quite a few years of life ahead of her-we can’t guarantee that of course-but one would hope with routine care she would have a good quality of life for the rest of her days.

Abby has lived with other dogs and is social with those she meets. She has never been observed around cats. Abby is said to be good with gentle children who are old enough to know to be careful with a dog her size. A dog this small could be very easily hurt, by other dogs, kids even adults, unintentionally.

At this time Abby spends a lot of her time alone. She is O.K. with that as she is left in a secure place with potty pads and everything she needs to keep her comfortable. However, we’d bet  Abby would be happier to spend more time with her humans.  It can be lonely for a dog to be left alone for long hours. Abby is described as  a very loving dog who is cuddly and enjoys burrowing in blankets.

We are told that Abby can manage stairs (probably not stairs that are too tall!) and that she is not a barky dog. It is not known how she is on leash but at her size, we’d guess she has been carried around a lot. A dog her size usually doesn’t require a lot of exercise. Abby sounds like such a sweet little dog. She deserves a loving forever home where she will always receive the time and vet care she needs.

Abby is posted for her caregiver in Snohomish, WA. For contact information please email:

This is not an ODH dog; we urge prospective adopters to do their own evaluation.
