What a precious little girl Chicka is ! She is pretty quiet in her kennel but a bundle of joy out in the yard. Indeed, this lovely pixie is one friendly tail wagging gal who enjoys the company of people and dogs alike. She is rather small and fits in a “little dog” coat…Her eyes are sparkling. She wears a cute silvery dress completed with white gloves and socks. An absolutely adorable eight month old puppy she is… Chicka walks well on the leash, has an eye for the birds, does not mouth and sits beautifully on command. She is mighty hungry for a pup so well nourished but i guess her body knows it has to grow some more… Chicka does like other dogs and even play bows to some in the street or when one is met at the gate. She hops on the bench when called and slides on my lap for caresses. She is quite an affectionate little mouse…Chicka comes with excellent recommendations from her former owners. She lived and played with young children and an adult Rottweiler. She would be house trained and free of any handling issues. So, why is Chicka with us ? Well, Chicka does at times eats her “droppings” and her family did not know how to deal with the issue. We are giving Chicka some medications to train her out of the habit but she most likely will need some behavior modification to cure her from this problem. Chicka is a stellar puppy otherwise and deserves any effort one might want to put into her. Come and meet her at the Manhattan Care Center and make her your forever best friend.
Chicka was brought in as an owner’s surrender. Owner had had Chicka for the past three months after receiving her from a friend. Owner says as far as she knows Chicka does not have any injuries or health concerns.

When trimming Chicka’s nails owner says she is fine as long as she does it fast.
For a New Family to Know
Chicka is described as confident, affectionate, and playful with a high activity level. When home Chicka is normally following her owners, and enjoys rope toys and playing tug. Chicka was kept mostly indoors, but would also spend about four hours in owner’s yard daily. Chicka normally slept in her crate, owner say she is house-trained and never has accidents.
