Segunda Vida
Chihuahua Female, 8 years old, 9 pounds "Segunda Vida" means "second life" in Spanish and this sweet Chihuahua is definitely deserving of a new and better life. She was found lying, confused, in the street, and a Good Samaritan brought her to Hollister Animal Services, concerned that she'd been hit by a car. In our care we learned though that she actually suffered from seizures. She is now on anticonvulsant medication and has been seizure-free since, but she will likely need to take medications regularly for the rest of her life. Segunda is regaining her strength and enjoys extended yard explorations and easy walks. She is friendly (if not indifferent) towards other dogs and also cats, but needs a good while to warm up to new people; trust does not come easy to her. She tolerates being pet on the head, but is unsure about being touched on her back or being picked up, so she will need a home that is patient with her "Segundaisms." This determined and independent lady would love to find a safe, quiet, and loving home with a nice cush bed in your office where she can curl up and supervise your work. In between supervising, she might need frequent reminders to go outside to do her "business." It seems just a matter of time until Segunda Vida can fully relax, enjoy that second chance on life -- and we are so looking forward to seeing her little tail finally unfurl and wag for the first time.
