Mama is a very sweet 9 yr old female spayed ChiWeenie. She originally came into our rescue in 2015 as a 1 yr old with a single puppy. Her name at that time was Estrella. She was adopted in 2016 along with her puppy but was unfortunately returned to us a few months ago. We won’t go into details on the circumstances of her return. As with all of our dogs we want them back at any point if they cannot stay with their adopter for any reason. We welcomed her back with open arms.

Here are some details about sweet Mama (Estrella).

She has a gimpy left front leg from a fracture that was never treated properly before we got her the first time. The elbow is fused so she cannot bend it. We took X-rays recently that can be sent to an adopters veterinarian for evaluation.

She was a chunky 7 lbs when we got her back, which wasn’t helping her limp. She has been on a diet since she was returned. She is now a svelte 5 lbs and is getting around better with the extra weight gone.

She has a tendency to resource guard her person from other dogs. She corrects very well and no longer does it in her current foster home. She knows it’s not allowed and doesn’t attempt it any more. She is indifferent to other dogs but will share dog beds with them. We think she would secretly prefer to be an only dog so she can have her person to herself. She is crate trained but prefers to be in the same room with her person.

She doesn’t like to be picked up without notice. She will snap if picked up too quickly. We think this might be due to the previous injury to her left elbow and her anticipating pain. If you let her know you are going to pick her up she allows it.

Mama is ready for a new home with someone that won’t let her down this time. If that person is you, please fill out an application! Her adoption fee is $250
