I'm Cinnabun

Breed

Age

Gender

Chihuahua

3 years old

Female

Adoption Fee

$400

Fostered in

Vero Beach, FL

Available for adoption after her spay surgery in mid-March.  She is having her spay done, along with a tiny cherry eye repair, and an inguinal hernia repair.

- 4lbs

- MUST-HAVES: Adopter must have a fenced yard 

- Good with dogs, chases cats - so no kitties

- Takes a little time to warm up, then she's a snugglemonster

- Good with men, women, no children please, but needs an experienced adopter

- Typical chi attitude, can be feisty and needs redirection

Cinnabun is a 3yr old, 4lb Chihuahua. She loves other dogs, small to medium sized, chases cats and prefers a home with no children. She is not fond of strangers and has a big bark, so her family will need to understand how to properly introduce her to others. She does not realize that she is only 4lbs.  She can be grumpy when disturbed, and she has a tendency to guard things she thinks are hers (like her foster mom).  Because of these little quirks, she will need someone who is experienced in dog behavior and body language, and the applicant must be able to describe their experience in detail.

Cinnabun will not be ready for adoption until after her spay and hernia repair surgery. She also has a cherry eye, which will be repaired by our vet at that time. Additionally, she has a Grade 4 luxating patella (right rear leg) which does not bother her at all, but will need to be monitored throughout her life. It’s also important her adopter understands the importance of not letting her become overweight, which can exacerbate a luxating patella. She loves the yard, loves wrestling with her foster brothers, and loves to sleep in the big bed with her foster mom and fur siblings. She must be allowed to sleep with her human(s) in her future home.

We will begin accepting applications for Cinnabun at this time, though she won’t be ready for placement until after she has healed from her spay and hernia surgery which is in mid-March. Her adoption fee is $400.

Cinnabun will be spayed, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative, and microchipped.

Fostered in

Bradenton, FL

Intake 1/18; Available.

Update 3/10/20:

Yoshi visited our vet last weekend to see if there was any help for his very tender skin. Our vet believes there are a few irritated hair follicles that should resolve on their own in time, but as for his sensitivity to touch, he can only presume his behavior is neurological. He could see what appear to be scars on Yoshi’s body, and his behavior is indicative of having been attacked or abused or both.

Today, Yoshi went into a bathroom, curled up with his head facing the corner (not pressing), and he was growling over and over at nothing. Once we touched his head and petted him, he was back to normal. We are really believing that his previous life must have been less than desirable, and he will possibly have his quirky neurological tendencies indefinitely.

Once out of his shell, Yoshi is a sweet little guy who has come a long way since coming to our rescue, but he will need a patient and understanding adopter that doesn’t expect him to be a snuggler. He loves treats, so it’s a great way to win his trust, but he might not ever be a happy, outgoing, little guy. We feel he would be best with no other dogs to intimidate him. He must have a fenced yard because he will not walk on a leash due to fear. No kids for Yoshi, and he would love a quiet, calm home. He would even be okay with someone who works during the day, because he would be content to sleep most of that time.

Update 3/5/20:

Yoshi has really come out of his shell.  He is very treat motivated, and will follow his foster mom around, waiting on a treat to come his way.  He howls when he's alone and has come to prefer being in the main living area with his humans.  He's not an overly affectionate dog, and he will take his time to warm up to his new people.  His new family should be patient and just let him be and wait for him to come to them.  He is okay with other calm dogs that don't get in his face, but he would ultimately prefer to be without other dogs.  He ignores cats.  We think he's a little hard of hearing.  He likes sleeping in bed with his humans.  He has potty accidents sometimes, but if he has access to a doggy door, he will use it to go potty outside.  Yoshi is afraid of the world beyond his home and fenced yard, so when he goes to the vet he will need to be held or strolled in a stroller.  He will not walk on a leash, nor should he ever be forced to.  He enjoys sunning and doing little playful frolics in the yard.  Yoshi also enjoys naps.

Original bio:

Yoshi has made improvements every single day. He’s figured out that rump rubs feel awesome, and he’s even had some zoomies in the backyard. He has a sad, soulful howl when he’s alone, but once he’s plopped on the couch, he’s happy. He’s come a long way from the scared little dog who would turn his back to us and face the wall every time he saw us.

Yoshi’s vet visit went great, though he lost five teeth in his dental. His bloodwork was good, he’s heartworm negative, and he weighs 10lbs. Yoshi hopes for a quiet future home with a calm dog or two to look toward for guidance and assurance.  Yoshi will not be placed in a home with multiple dogs or active dogs, as he is fearful of them and would thrive in a quiet home.  

He is a very sweet dog who just needs a little time and patience and yummy treats, and he will blossom into a little white shadow in his new home.  He's housetrained to a point, where if you're proactive about potty trips, he doesn't have any mistakes.  He does kind of like to poop inside if not given ample time outside, but he's a Crested, so it comes with the territory.  Yoshi does not like leashed walks and must have a fenced in yard because of this.

Yoshi is neutered, microchipped, heartworm negative, and vaccinated.

Please know that we can receive multiple applications for a single dog, and adoption is not done on a first come, first serve basis.  We strive to ensure the best possible home for each individual dog's needs and personality.  Thank you for looking to adopt.  The warmth and joy that rescue dogs can bring into your life is undeniable and like no other.
