This is Kiwi. She is a dachshund/chihuahua mix. She appears to be around 2-years-old. Initially she was very standoffish and had a lot of anxiety. She has come a LONG WAY since entering foster care in early May 2019. While still shy, she has really started to come out of her shell. She is very sweet and soulful; you can she wants to be part of the pack. Also, she is house and crate trained. She is very quiet. She does well with other dogs. Her leash skills are developing (getting better every day!). I don't think she has any experience with cats. I wouldn't recommend that she spend time around young children. However, she would be fine with teenagers and above. She's come a long way, but she still has a long way to go. Are you the one to help her along on her journey? I am living in a San Antonio Pets Alive! foster home. By adopting me, you not only give me a new leash on life; you also save the life of an additional pet who can be rescued from euthanasia and placed in foster care. If you are interested in adopting me, please email with my name and ID#. Please allow up to 24 hours to respond, as all fosters work on a volunteer basis.
