Coat length:

Well hello there, my name is Gator from the SEC litter. I think thats a silly name for a lovely girl like me but my foster mom and dad are college football fans so Ill indulge them - Im just a little nervous about being part of the Gator Chomp! Im a female, thought to be Chihuahua mix born on June 22, 2022 and currently weigh just 5 lbs. I have the gorgeous medium length black and tan coat and wing shaped ears that foster mom says makes me irresistible. Typical of the Chihuahua breed, Im energetic and love to play but I especially want to sit in a lap and cuddle and give lots of puppy kisses. Foster mom thinks Ill make a perfect "purse" pup - whatever that means!

I am learning so much and cant wait to have a family of my own to continue growing. I am just a baby and my adopters should be respectful of my small size and puppy needs, such as not being left alone for more than 4 hours at a time, and to teach me proper manners with play, potty, leash walking and crating. In return, I promise to try really hard to make you proud and to give lots of puppy kisses!

I am microchipped and current on my my vaccines and monthly preventatives. Looking for fun tiny companion - Im your guy! Apply to adopt me today.

Operation Paws for Homes, Inc. (OPH) rescues dogs and cats of all breeds and ages from high-kill shelters in NC, VA, MD, and SC, reducing the numbers being euthanized. With limited resources, the shelters are forced to put down 50-90% of the animals that come in the front door. OPH provides pet adoption services to families located in VA, DC, MD, PA and neighboring states. OPH is a 501(c)(3) organization and is 100% donor funded. OPH does not operate a shelter or have a physical location. We rely on foster families who open their homes to give love and attention to each pet before finding a forever home.All adult dogs, cats, and kittens are altered prior to adoption. Puppies too young to be altered at the time of adoption must be brought to our partner vet in Ashland, VA for spay or neuter paid for by Operation Paws for Homes by 6 months of age. Adopters may choose to have the procedure done at their own vet before 6 months of age and be reimbursed the amount that the rescue would pay our partner vet in Ashland.
