About Petunia

  • Status: Adopted!
  • Species: Dog
  • Current Size: 10 Pounds
  • Current Age: 5 Years (best estimate)


Petunia is a 3 year old Chihuahua/Terrier mix that is mild-mannered and warm-hearted.  Petunia was a stray and very skinny when she first arrived from the Denver Animal Shelter.  However she is gaining weight quickly and has went from being cautious to excited and trusting of her foster parents.

Petunia doesn’t quite understand how to play with other dogs just yet but is picking up on the process.   When her foster sister tries to play with her by growling Petunia runs to try and protect her foster momma!   She loves to cuddle with people and her foster sister and will curl up next to foster momma.  She is happy being held and cuddled with on the couch

She is tolerant of being bathed and does well in the car.  She has been house trained with treats as rewards for going outside.   She is also crate trained and doesn’t fuss when put in her kennel.  Petunia is mostly independent  and spends a lot of time laying on the top of the couch near the window but she but does come and check on her foster momma every once in a while. 

Petunia is happy to be off the streets and into a nice warm home but what she would really like is a forever home.  If you think this girl might just be the perfect fit for you please fill out an application to adopt her today!
