Pixie was picked up from an inhumane hoarding/breeding home with 15 other Chihuahuas in June 2015. All of the Chihuahuas that were picked up were unsocialized, fearful and seemed very traumatized. Animal Control thinks these animals were kept inside a small home for most of their lives. We definitely think this sweet girl was used for breeding, she looks like she's had multiple litters.
Pixie found herself on the red-list at South LA shelter and was set to be euthanized when her foster angel, Karen, stepped up to save her life. It took Pixie less than a week to start coming out of her shell in her loving foster home, and we've loved watching her transform from a dog that was extremely scared of people, to learning to trust again. She is still shy at first, but warms up quickly and bonds easily with humans that show her love.
Pixie is 6 years old, 8 pounds, house trained, spayed, crate trained and current on shots. She loves going for walks and gets along well with other dogs. She would do best in a home with other small dogs and an owner who will be patient and very loving towards her.
