Adopt a Chihuahua / Pomeranian / Mixed (medium coat)

Chihuahua / Pomeranian / Mixed (medium coat) Dog

Tanuki the Dog needs a home

Please contact Grace ([email protected]) for more information about this pet.
Update, July 2017:  Tanuki is still waiting for her forever family to find her.  She is still timid with new people, but with a lot of patience and love we know she can fit into a new home.  She is mostly house trained, though she prefers to go outside in a secure fenced yard to potty every 3 hours or so.  She likes to chase and bark at birds, squirrels and rabbits.  Right now she isn't very cuddly, but we know she will be eventually with the right people to love her.

Tanuki means racoon in Japanese. As you can see in the young puppy picture of her, she had a 'mask' like a racoon. Tanuki is Chihuahua/Pomeranian, and came to foster care when she was 5 weeks old. She needs time to get to know other dogs and new people. Some Chihuahuas are just like that. She loves to play with her foster sister Trixie. She is scared of children. She may be ok in a home with a child that is 10 or older, but would rather a 'quiet' home. 

Tanuki is up to date on vaccinations, heartworm prevention and has been spayed. She is house trained, but does have an accident once in a while if not let out often. It would be best for her to have a home with a securely fenced yard since she does run away when she is scared. Tanuki's adoption fee is $100.


Trixie and Tanuki are good friends and would love to be adopted together. We can do a special adoption fee if they go to the same home.
