Meet Lala! Lala is a long haired Chihuahua. She is 8 years old and 8 pounds, spayed and up to date on her vaccinations. Lala also had a dental recently. Lala is beautiful, independent and curious. Lala came into rescue with a rough past but with an extensive training program of reward based counter conditioning, Lala now enjoys the company of people.

She lives with other small dogs in her foster home but would be most happy as an only dog. Lala would do best in a home without kitties, as she likes to chase them and a home without children is a must.

Lala is friendly with strangers; she barks at first, but is eager to greet and accept affection. Lala is potty trained and is okay without a potty break for about 6 hours. She navigates stairs like a pro and loves to ride in the car. She enjoys a game of fetch with her plushy toys, walks and snuggles on movie night. She seeks out love and attention from her foster parents but she is not a needy dog and would be comfortable with a family that doesn’t require her to be with them all of the time.

Lala needs a fully fenced yard or fenced/sectioned off area for potty (like an x-pen off the back door). She has shown no interest in escaping, but since it will take her a while before she accepts all the handing required to put on her leash, off leash potty time is a necessity.

She is on an anti anxiety medication, that allows her to be mindful enough to accept training. She has really excelled in the training program and our goal is to wean her off her medication once she is settled into her new home. Lala’s ideal home will be a safe, quiet environment and a home where her new family will continue her reward-based training. Lala has had a rough past and has come a long way. She is now ready for the final part of her journey in her forever home.

Lala is posted for Rescued Hearts Northwest and is fostered in Bellingham WA.
