Meet Squirrel! This adorable, tiny little Chihuahua comes to us all the way from Fresno where she was found as a stray. This sweet pup loves to cuddle, meet new dogs, and make friends. We are still getting to know her, but we can tell what a lovely best friend she’ll make already!

Squirrel is 13 years young and weighs 4.6lbs.

Due to Squirrel’s advanced age and heart disease, she is available for adoption through Muttville’s hospice care program.

Here’s what her foster has to say about her:

Squirrel has really blossomed as she has become comfortable in my home. She’s independent, playful, quirky and also very quiet! She is happy to sleep on your lap or be in your vicinity checking out what you’re doing. She’s happy to travel with you in her carrier. She can walk a mile, no problem, and likes to explore. She likes to be walked a bit and to explore but doesn’t need a lot of walking. She is great with other dogs too. She is house-trained and will use potty pads if left in a confined space. Her fur feels like a fox, she attracts attention wherever she goes.

Watch Squirrel at Muttville!
