Pet of the Week - Trixie Chihuahua

Name: Trixie, like Speed Racer's girlfriend and the fab drag queen

Birthdate: March 16, 2016

Ethnicity: Tiny Trixie is a short-haired Chihuahua mix, tipping the scales at a mere 8 pounds. She's all ready for a NYE party in her little black dress — she just needs a date. This diminutive doll loves to talk. Her finder reports that Trixie is a sweetheart and loves to snuggle; she loves beds. Trixie loves stroll on a leash and be driven around with her human friend. She's house-trained but might have an accident or two as she adjusts to a new environment.

The fun floofer loves kids and reportedly even got along well with her handler's two-year-old child. For households that already have a dog, it's best to introduce Trixie and let the pooches slowly get to know each other.    

Come and get me: Trixie is available for adoption at 11 am Friday, December 21 at Citizens for Animal Protection (17555 Katy Freeway; 281-497-0591). Tell them, "Ken Hoffman sent me."
