CHIQUIS – Lab-Mix / 8 years / 22kg / F-Spayed
We are very excited to welcome Chiquis into our rescue, and doubly excited to find her forever family for her.
We don’t know a lot about her past, as she was found tied up in an abandoned lot with 3 other dogs. A concerned neighbour reported the dogs, and Chiquis was fortunate enough to survive. Her will to live is strong! And her will to trust is even stronger. Despite being abused in her past, she will try time and again, to have people just love her. If you watch her videos, she is consistently taking steps forward (and occasionally taking a wee step back). With the right people in her life, mis-trust will be a thing of her past.
She is great with dogs and cats, and in general is just a lovely gentle girl. A canine companion would be wonderful for her, as they can sometimes help a shy dog with trust and confidence. We fully believe in Chiquis and we can’t wait for her to believe in herself!

She would love a home with a yard and peeps around a lot of the time. For medical care, she could stand to lose a few pounds, and would benefit from joint supplements (we recommend this for any dog 7+)
