Adopt me!: Trixie the Chinese Crested 'Powderpuff' mix

Posted 7:04pm on Monday, Dec. 31, 2012


ID No. A14599201

9 years old, spayed female canine Chinese Crested "Powderpuff" mix; about 25 pounds.

Trixie was found as a stray and went to the Burleson animal shelter in November 2011. She came to the Humane Society in December 2011, and when she caught an upper respiratory infection, she was placed in a foster home. Because she is so beautiful and unique, her foster family fell in love with her and wanted to keep her. Unfortunately, they have too many pets and were not able to give Trixie and her other friends the space, time and attention they need, so Trixie is looking for a forever home again.

Trixie is about 8 or 9 years old, but she does not know that she is a "senior." She is a Chinese Crested "Powderpuff" mix, which means she has white frizzy hair instead of being mostly "naked" like most Cresteds. Trixie loves to play with toys and is an excellent jumper. Some of her favorite things to do are: give you many delicate licks or kisses, lounge by the pool, take long walks, bury and find anything that may be food, and play with squeaky toys.

Trixie likes dogs, but likes to chase cats, so she would do better in a home without them; she is house- and crate-trained. She is an indoor dog that prefers to sleep on the couch or in doggie beds. She would do best in an easygoing household of adults or older kids who are looking for a mostly calm dog that loves to be spoiled.

Please consider making this lovely and special dog your new furry best friend.
