About Me: Hi there, my name is Cona and I came to the SPCA of Texas in October of 2019 with 42 of my Chihuahua-type friends and some chickens! I struggled with skin issues for a long time and that's finally settled, although I may look naked for a long time... maybe always? The next hurdle is losing some of this weight! I've spent time in a foster home and I occasionally ask them for pets or snuggles - it's always on my terms. Otherwise, I'm a really low maintenance and easy dog. I never bark, do fine when left alone, and go to the bathroom outside or will use pee pads if available. I love to sunbathe even though that means my foster parents have to spray doggy sunscreen on me first - yuck!

HOME NEEDS: I need a calm, quiet home with a securely fenced yard. I'm still working on getting comfortable on leash and loud sounds make me nervous.

DOGS: While I'm not a dog that actively tries to engage other dogs, I can peacefully coexist with calm doggos.

KIDS: Adults Only, please.

SPECIAL NOTE: I'm a required trial adoption so that the SPCA of Texas can provide medical and behavior support while I settle into a new home!
