Pet Corner: Nena

Name: Nena
Breed: Chihuahua – long coat
Age: 2 years old
Sex: Female
Color: Black/white
Date of surrender: 8/7/14


Nena is a good-natured 2 year old Chihuahua. She has no history living with kids, so we’d recommend a house with kids 13 and up.  However, if you have younger children, arrange a meet-up with Nena and see how it goes.

She should not be in a house with cats, as she will chase and aggravate them. Being 2 years old, she has a moderate amount of energy, but has a nice temperament that allows her to be as likely to curl up and cuddle as to run and hike alongside you.

Nena is fine for a family or caregiver without previous experience having a dog, and she can live with other dogs, as long as they’re relatively calm or mildly active. She is currently at Dakin’s Springfield location.
