This is CHICA


Chica is an adorable Chihuahua mix who needs to find her forever loving home. Chica is with her owner but, due to a divorce, she is working very long hours and Chica is left alone by herself. This schedule does not afford her time to be able to keep Chica so sadly, she needs another home.

Chica is very alert, loyal and protective and is actually her service dog (she does not have extreme need for this now) so has training beyond the norm. She also loves to snuggle and be hugged. Linal is able to fly with Chica anywhere in the US where American Airlines would is located, so this opens her door to be able to go most places in the US or at least within range.
