Diva is a sweet shy long-legged doxie-chi mix (mostly chi with the best ears) who was found as a stray and was taken to a local shelter where it became a nightmarish experience for her with all the noise, barking, dogs and people. She stayed curled up in a ball the whole time so terribly afraid to move a muscle. Not one person was interested in adopting this doll because it appeared she had given up on life. Unfortunately, in most shelters "not showing well" is punishable by death unless a rescue group agrees to help the dog which we did because she needed us. So that is the story of how little Diva became an "honorary" doxie. She definitely needs a patient gentle adopter. She loves to play with the smaller dogs in her foster home (and me). It's quite hilarious to watch her play with short-legged doxies! She needs a petite playful dog buddy in her new home. She is very affectionate and will follow you everywhere. She loves to explore in the fenced yard and also enjoys sun-bathing. She is a pretty cool intelligent dog. ****Applicants must be willing to travel to Ellicott City MD (10 miles south of Baltimore) to meet and adopt Diva. Her adoption fee is $275.****
