Health: Carmen Miranda has been spayed and microchipped. She is current on her DHPP, Bordetella, and Rabies. She has been wormed and flea treated, and tested negative for heartworm.
History: Carmen Miranda comes from an overcrowded shelter in California. PUP was asked to help and we are so glad we did. All dogs PUP pulls from California come with health certificates, as required by Washington state.
Notes from Carmen Miranda's Foster Home:
Carmen Miranda is one special girl, and she definitely knows it! This hot little mama likes playing hard to get, and tends to start out shy when meeting new people. The best part of fostering little Carmen has been seeing her transform from a shy little chihuahua girl to the bright, shining superstar that really she is. She will be happiest meeting people who are ready and able to take the time to get past her coy attitude to the fun, fiery bundle underneath.
To those in the know, Carmen Miranda has a spring in her step, and really lives up to her fiery name. She likes going out on walks or even on shorter runs (for an itty bitty dog, this mama can stretch her legs!) After an active play date, she loves for her people to shower her with attention like the little movie star that she is. Her high energy moments are nicely balanced with a love for her cuddling on your lap, taking naps together, padding after you from room to room throughout the day, and just generally loving you up. Carmen’s bright eyes and wagging tail will never fail to greet you at the door, and all she asks in return is your undying love and devotion. Is that so much to ask for? She’s a real looker from the splash of white on her nose to her long, dainty dancer’s legs. She’s a super special pup that’s quickly danced her way into our hearts. Please hurry up and meet her before we can’t let her go!
Note: The above description reflects the behavior we have observed in the dog's foster home. Although PUP provides adopters up to the minute information on our dogs, we cannot guarantee they will behave in the same manner in a different environment with new owners.
Adoption: If you think you have room in your home and heart for this dog and you reside within Washington State, please go to our Adoption Information page. There you will find more information and be able to fill out an adoption application.
