This is eight-month-old Posh (already named by her adoptive family who are still in Arizona but hopefully will soon be coming to take her home. At less than seven pounds, she's very small and I suspect won't get much bigger; we're speculating that she might be part toy Schnauzer. She was found in a ditch near Hermosillo, eating garbage. Her rescuers spent hours on tick removal (60 ticks and counting!) before she was free of vermin. After a couple of days in our house she was housebroken (knock on wood) and she walks with a leash and sits for treats already so I suspect she had some training at some point. She was mouthy but I grasped her muzzle firmly and said "NO!" every time she tried to chomp down on my hands, and I think she's just about past that bad habit. I wonder if children teased her and encouraged her biting, and then perhaps she bit too hard and they got rid of her... We'll never know.
It would be so easy to keep her! But there are two litters of puppies I know of, all of which need fostering too. And I have great confidence that the people who want her will give her a great home.
