Sedona, 2, is a spayed female Chihuahua. Sedona gets along well with other dogs and knows the “come” command. We had the opportunity to place Sedona in a foster home after a failed adoption revealed some behavioral challenges. Her foster dad, Joel, worked with Sedona to gain her trust. She is now back and waiting for a family to take her home forever. Joel says, “Sedona is a little cuddle bug, a quintessential lap dog who enjoys nothing more than spending time with her human. She does have some trust issues with men, and will do best in a home with a single woman or with a couple as long as the man is patient and calm. She is a very timid and flighty dog. She does better with positive encouragement for doing the right thing, and I’d recommend not disciplining her for doing the wrong thing if possible. She still needs more house training and I emphasize again she needs to be with someone who is patient and understanding of her timidity.”
