|Pet ID #:||2129|
Although she's 18 months old and technically a young adult, her size (a mere 9 lbs.) and face will convince you that Evie must have taken a drink from the Fountain of Youth. Perhaps Evie, whose name in Hebrew means "lively," owes her perpetual puppy prettiness to a magical mix of Rat Terrier and Chihuahua genes. Most definitely she'll want to be your baby, especially if you're patient with her initial shyness. Once she learns to trust you, you'll have one very loyal little girl, who will love sitting with you or lying in your lap, perhaps even catching a nap there. Evie reserves most of her liveliness for similarly sized canine playmates. Sometimes she can be seen herding the smaller pups in her foster home or engaging one of them in a rousing battle of tug-of-war. She has her paws crossed that you will have another little dog to be her playmate. If you have a cat, that would be fine too. She'll probably ignore it or, if she's really wound up, might even try to entice it to play. If you have kids, they should be old enough to respect Evie's preference for low-key cuddling. Evie sleeps through the night accident free in her bed in a crate and will whine when she wants to go out. During the day, she's pretty reliably house-trained, though she still needs some work on braving the outside elements on rainy days. She's also learning to feel comfortable in a harness for walking on a leash. She would do best in a fenced yard while she's continuing to learn leash walking and perfecting her potty training.
