Update, September 2016: Tanuki is still waiting for her forever family to find her. She is still timid with new people, but with a lot of patience and love we know she can fit into a new home. She is mostly house trained, though she prefers to go outside in a secure fenced yard to potty every 3 hours or so. She likes to chase and bark at birds, squirrels and rabbits. Right now she isn't very cuddly, but we know she will be eventually with the right people to love her.
Tanuki means racoon in Japanese. As you can see in the young puppy picture of her, she had a "mask" like a racoon. Tanuki is Chihuahua/Pomeranian, and came to foster care when she was 5 weeks old. She loves other dogs, but is a little timid with new people. Some Chihuahuas are just like that. She loves to play with her foster sisters Trixie and China. She is scared of children. She may be ok in a home with a child that is 10 or older, but would rather a "quiet" home.
Tanuki is up to date on vaccinations, heartworm prevention and has been spayed. She is working on crate and house training. It would be best for her to have a home with a securely fenced yard since she does run away when she is scared. Tanuki's adoption fee is $150.
