Health: Sassi has just had her dental and a full blood work up. She has received clearance by the vet for healthy organs (liver, kidneys and heart). We are confident in confirming she has no health issues. 

Personality: Sassi is a clever, confident, loyal and adventurous, she is very active and loves playing with her toys. Sassi loves human company and will happily follow you around the house. Sassi absolutely loves playing with toys, she loves to climb into the toy-box and hoard toys in her crate. We would describe Sassi as always being busy - she loves to skuttle about the house and garden and amuses herself quite a lot. Sassi also has a very sweet side, in the evenings she loves to crawl onto your chest or lap and settle down for a nap. Sassi is licky and just adores spending time with you.

 Adopter Requirements: Sassi would benefit from an Owner who is home a lot (Maybe a part time worker, someone who works from home, could take her to work or has retired). Sassi would be best in a home where the owner has no other lapdogs, or perhaps one submissive Chihuahua at most. Sassi is not bothered by other dogs but can be very dominant with other dogs when she meets them initially. Sassi has a very "alpha" personality and loves to have human attention to herself. Sassi has been living in our pack of 6 Chihuahuas fine, but has started disagreements over a perceived lack of attention, toys and food. Please ensure your yard and home are fully fenced with not even tiny holes as Sassi can be a little Houdini escape artist! 

Chihuahuas can live to 20 years and beyond. Accordingly, Sassi is only approximately half way through her lifespan and requires someone who is committed to seeing the next however many years through with her, as their best friend!

Sassi comes with: her collar and leash, bed, bedding, vet book and copy of DogsNZ papers, her Orijen Senior dog food, K9 dog harness "Sassi" patch, Council tags, toys and crate.
