Meet Nikki, as sweet as can be and seemingly unaware that she had a front leg amputated 2 weeks ago. Nikki is a wonderful little girl who is a Velcro dog but with a streak of independence. She loves laps and belly rubs but will take off around the house playing with a toy.

Nikki is probably a Min Pin/Chihuahua mix. She has a docked tail like a Min Pin and she is chocolate colored, which is a possible but unusual color for either a Min Pin or a Chihuahua. She is 2-3 years old (what looks like greying on her muzzle is actually white markings that she also has on one paw and her chest). She weighs 7 ยฝ pounds.  

Nikki is a bit feisty around other dogs. She canโ€™t decide if she wants to play or squabble so it is best that she be an only dog in her forever home. This tiny tripod will not be placed in a home with children. She needs work on housetraining. She is spayed, up-to-date on shots and microchipped.

We adopt only in Southern California. If you are interested in adopting Nikki, please email for an adoption application.

FindpetTM is a Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry for the AAHA Universal Pet Microchip Lookup Tool. AAHA provides an internet-based application that enables veterinarians, humane organizations, pet owners or other persons to search various Pet Recovery Service registries and identify those registries on which a particular microchip is registered. AAHA is not affiliated or involved with any specific microchip registry and has no relationship, financial or otherwise, with this Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry ("Registry"). This Registry has given AAHA permission to search the Registry's database in order to assist pet owners in being reunited with their pets. AAHA does not maintain a database of microchips of its own. It only links to registries such as this one. The AAHA Universal Microchip Lookup Tool only searches the databases of companies that elect to participate in the program.
