Starry Night is such a snuggle bunny. She and a sister were rescued from a very Chihuahua-crowded trailer, and now she's so happy to be in a foster home where she can cuddle on the couch and get those belly rubs. She LOVES them. She's a happy girl who smiles a lot and play pounces. And then chases her tail. Such fun!

She's a little shy when first meeting people, but warms up quickly and always likes them. A sprightly, very curious girl, she likes to check on everything, even those she has to climb or jump up on things to investigate. When she's excited this mischievous lady will stand on her hind legs and get in your face to check you out, and she especially wants to see what you're eating. She is working on her house-training and does very well in the crate she shares with her sibling.

This bright, funny lady will love to move in with new parents who can give her some training. She should enjoy learning about leash walking so she can check out neighborhoods and parks. Come meet this playful girl!
