Chihuahua/Pug Mix 
Female, spayed

Truffle is a cute little eight pound Chihuahua/Pug mix (Chug). Although she is full grown at about a year old she looks like a chocolate lab puppy. Whenever you look at her you can't help thinking ‘chocolate!’ 

Truffle is a happy dog who likes to play in the back yard with her toys or fallen leaves. However, at this time she is very skittish around humans. She is only brave enough to get as close as needed to give your fingertips a lick and will try to get away if she thinks she’s going to be picked up. Her foster mom is most successful in picking her up first thing in the morning or right before bedtime. Truffle is improving a little every day and will sit for a pet on the head She did surprisingly well at her first showing where she was held by several volunteers. 

Truffle may do best in a home with another dog her size to show her the ropes and demonstrate that people are okay. She appears to be house trained and sleeps on a dog bed in the bedroom. Please fill out an application if you want to meet me.
