Alba is a 6 year old female Chihuahua. She is very sweet natured and quite confident for a Chihuahua; she is initially shy but hasn’t shown any aggression to anyone here during her time with us. Understandably, having spent so much of her early years raising puppies, she has missed out on a lot of key socializing time herself. She needs taking right back to basics and would benefit from training classes and further exposure to the big wide world so that she is successfully able to become the confident well rounded dog we know she can be.
Alba does enjoy going for walks but can be quite reactive when she sees other dogs out however she’s quite social when she meets them. Alba has shared her suite with other dogs; both her size and a little bigger. We have found she can be quite dominant and a bit of a bully with smaller or similar sized dogs but did coincide with them without problems quite happily. We have tested her with cats; she was okay and not aggressive with them however did chase them when they ran. This greatly reduced with redirection and correction. Nervous cats would not be suitable to live with her, however a dog savvy one may be able to live with her with the necessary precautions put in place.
Alba is not a complicated girl and has no major issues. For a Chihuahua she is incredibly simple. She thrives on structure and routine and needs firm boundaries for her to succeed. She is incredibly affectionate when she knows you but can be standoffish at first. She travels well in the car, is crate trained, non destructive in the home and happy to be left for reasonable durations of time. Alba is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.
