Dallas, TX: Tiny, chi/jrt mix, Prissy, too big for her britches

This adorable little girl needs to be the "only child" so she can cuddle and recover during HW treatment. Medical help is there, her "almost" parents desperately want to find the perfect rescue or family for her - they are doing everything they can to avoid sending her back to the shelter. read her story and please share it.

We just recently adopted a little Chihuahua mix from the City of Dallas Animal Services. As it turns out she is Chihuahua and Jack Russell mix. They said she was two years old but she acts much younger. She is spayed and micro-chipped but she is heart worm positive. The City of Dallas will supply her heart worm treatments.

We are an over 60 couple with 4 rescue dogs all of which are 8 years old or older. We wanted a sweet and quiet lap baby as our others are very independent and not overly affectionate. We saw this darling baby and just fell in love. In the cage at the pound she was shy, and scared and would just cuddle down into your arms. We were finally able to bring her home last Friday after she had her spaying. That is when the trouble began.

She definitely has a Jack Russell personality and is very hyper. Hyper to the point we just cannot control her and our other dogs cannot tolerate her constant jumping on them. She is a living doll when she is asleep but a holly terror when awake. She definitely needs someone who knows how to train her and finish socializing her. She is absolutely not afraid of other dogs and continuously runs over them and lays on top of them etc.

Additionally, I have no idea how we are going to keep her quiet and calm during her heartworm treatments, work, and having 4 others running around.
Now, all of the dogs are growling and snapping at her and the others. We're desperate to get her into a situation where she will be safe and cared for.

I just do not see how we can keep her. I want to get her into the rescue so she’ll be cared for and made ready for another home. Can you please help us? I do not want to return her to the city pound but she is not fitting into our lives and surroundings at all.

We can certainly deliver her anywhere she need to be. Thanks….
