Twiggy our teeny-tiny Italian Greyhuahua (Italian Greyhound + Teacup Chihuahua) is:

  • Calm

  • Gentle

  • Sweet

  • Wants to be with you and hangs close by

  • Jumps in your lap, likes to be there, and once there likes to be pet

  • Knows how to use a doggie door

  • Gets along with large and small dogs

  • Lives in a foster home with parrots and doesn't pay attention to them

  • Crate trained

  • Learning to walk well on a leash

  • Spayed female

  • 4 years old (estimated by the shelter she came from)

  • 4.5 lbs

  • Up-to-date on vaccinations

  • Microchipped

  • Twiggy has not been with cats under our care so we don't know how she is with them

  • Twiggy  hates to be chased and will interpret any movement in her direction as chasing.  We believe she was chased on the streets of San Ysidro where she was found.  We're working on getting her not to be frightened when she's approached.  It's clear to us she was someone's lapdog at one time based on how she enjoys being in a lap.

  • Would do best in an adult only home.


Twiggy's adoption fee is $195.
