A message from Babette:

I'm a chihuahua mix and probably terrier which accounts for my rough coat. I am a sweetheart (my foster mom said so!!) I get along with all adults and kids, as well as dogs, even big ones like the German Shepherd I currently am living with. However, I really just want to be with my human....all the time. Yes, the bathroom too. When I am with you I will just lie at your feet but as soon as you leave the room I will follow. I would love to sleep in your bed with you but am also fine on the floor next to your bed. I really do not like a crate but I will sleep in it at night next to your bed. When I cannot be with you as when you leave the house, I bark....a lot. So I would not be good living in a townhouse, apartment or condo. I hope to find a home with someone who is not gone all day. So, if you would like to learn more about me contact my foster mom at
