   Name: MANUELA
MISS MANUELA
More Photos
   Breed: Chihuahua
   Gender: Female
   Age: 3 yrs. 8 mo.  Birthday: 9/2013 (est)
   Weight: Small (less than 30 pounds)
   This dog has special needs.
   Milo ID: 24317
   Current Location: Foster Care
Itty bitty 3 lb Applehead Chihuahua. A real sweetie! Manuela is estimated to be about 4 years old and is friendly to everyone she's met, even strangers and big off leash dogs. She has medium energy, loves napping and in her more active moments she will impress you with sweet Chihuahua dances and twirls. She is very loving and snuggly, happy to sit on your lap for hours. This girl is a real charmer - loves all people, dogs, cats, and even chickens.

Manuela has a medical condition called epilepsy, which means she occasionally has seizures (convulsions that last up to a few minutes). She is on daily medication and a strict diet, and now after 4 months of medical care and recuperation in a foster home, the severity and frequency of her seizures have now been significantly reduced from once every few weeks to now only every few months. Her medications are not expensive - one benefit of a tiny dog - however she currently needs to have regular blood tests and checkups at the vet, so this is an expense that her forever family will need to carefully consider. Because of her medical condition, we are looking for a special home for this sweet girl - someone who will be committed to staying on top of her medical needs, and who can be with her most of the time in case she has a seizure. When she does have a seizure, she needs anti-seizure medication and then watched closely to ensure that the seizures are not too severe.

Mani is too tiny and fragile to live with small children or rambunctious dogs and would do best in a quiet home. It will be very important for her new family to be prepared to keep her safe as she is very tiny and can easily slip out a small hole in a fence, get underfoot, get injured by larger dogs or wild animals. She has teeny tiny legs and could be injured jumping off of furniture.

Mani currently lives in a foster home with gentle 20 and 30 lb dogs, 3 cats and a flock of chickens. She does fine with all of them! Mani really loves small gentle dogs and would make an excellent friend for a small dog. She is also very close friends with one of our more outgoing cats.

Mani enjoys shorter walks and play time in the yard but is more of a lap dog and not much of an athlete. She is perfectly comfortable on leash. She has done well walking about the neighborhood with her foster daddy and her foster brother and sister, with a little break here and there, but she chugs along enjoying being with the other dogs in the sunshine. She gets cold fairly easily and may need to wear a coat to stay warm.

Mani is not 100% house trained. She does like to do her business outside, but will have accidents if we don't watch her closely when the doors to the outside are closed.

Mini Mani is a delightful dog for someone looking for a darling little friend to share life, love, and gentle companionship!

*FOSTER UPDATE 5/17/17* - Foster Notes on Doodle, one big mush of love:

Doodle was rescued, along with 14 other dogs, from a hoarding situation. She came into the Milo Foundation covered in fleas, and pregnant. We have fostered her since February and she had her litter of 7 pups with us. They are now adopted out to wonderful families and she is ready for her forever home. We think she’s a terrier/papillon mix, with those lovely butterfly ears.

She’s about 12 pounds of cuddliness. Doodle is your classic Velcro dog; she wants nothing more than to be near her humans. She is amazingly calm and patient with children of all ages, and loves people in general - very friendly and sociable, and will say hello to everyone she meets. She does not, however, like other dogs near her property. We think she developed an aversion to other dogs in her first 3-5 years, prior to being rescued. Despite her size, she is not a yippy/barky dog, only when directed at other dogs in her “territory." However, away from our house, she is not bothered by other dogs, and can take long, off leash hikes with us, keeping up with her little short legs the whole time. She also was never house-trained, and so will need strict, consistent crate training to re-educate her about where it’s okay to eliminate. She would be amazing in agility training, as she is really smart, and agile (she can climb a 4’ fence!). Doodle is a big mush - she has so much love to give. Just look into those big, watery brown eyes as she wags her tail madly, and we are certain you’ll fall in love with her as we have.

*FOSTER UPDATE* 2/12/17- "Doodle is somewhere between 3-5 years old, 15 pounds, mixed breed. We think she should be renamed “Mush” because she’s just a big ball of love. She has the softest fur, very expressive ears, and the friendliest disposition you could ever imagine. She is constantly wagging her tail, delighted to see everyone, especially calm, gentle children. She’s cautious around some dogs, friendly with others. For such a small dog, she is surprisingly quiet- not a yippy, barking type at all. She is pretty mellow, needing only a casual stroll once a day to stretch her legs, never pulling on the leash. Doodle is definitely a velcro dog, preferring to be right beside her humans at all times, but does not get underfoot.

She can hold her bladder while crated. On occasion, she has intentionally waited until after she comes back inside to relieve herself. We think this might have something to do with how she lived in her previous living situation. We have noticed really good progress with training, and she is extremely food-motivated and responsive. We think she would make an amazing family dog."
