Luli is a 10 year old spayed Chihuahua mix. Her owner got her from the Dominican Republic. Her family has to surrender her because they have developed allergies. Luli has been blind for about 2 years. The last time she was at the vet was under a year ago. She has been living part-time with her owner’s mother in law for a while.
Around strangers Luli is shy for a few minutes. She has spent time with a child, aged 2 years. She is relaxed and playful with him. She plays gently with adults and children. She has lived with another dog, Soy, who is a 10 year old Shar Pei. They have lived together their whole lives. They are relaxed and respectful of each other. Luli is getting older so she doesn’t play much with other dogs, but when she does she is gentle. Luli has lived with cats in the home and is relaxed/respectful of them. She hasn’t been around any other animals. She has never bitten anyone or another animal.
Luli is, in general, well-behaved. She has accidents inside frequently. During storms/fireworks, she isn’t bothered. Luli isn’t bothered when someone touches her food while she is eating/takes chews, bones, or toys away/is pushed off furniture/is held or restrained/gets a bath/gets brushed/gets a nail trim/when someone unfamiliar approaches her house or family member. Sometimes she will bark when someone rings the doorbell.
For new family:
Luli is described as affectionate, shy, friendly, and mellow. Her energy level is medium. Her owners love that she is affectionate and friendly with children. These days she just loves to relax. At home, she stays in the same room. She likes to play with squeaky toys and chew bones. She doesn’t like to play games. She has been kept mostly indoors. She sleeps in a little bed that is next to Soy’s bed. She eats Iams/Beneful dry food twice a day. She is semi-housetrained and has accidents at home, but uses the wee-wee pads. She goes potty on the grass if taken outside. She is well-behaved when left alone. She was crate trained, but didn’t do well, she would have accidents inside. She knows “Sit” and “Come” and comes to her name. For exercise she likes slow walks off leash. On leash, she doesn’t pull. She has never been off leash in and unfenced area.
