Adopt Me! Well-Mannered Indira Is a Model Canine
This 7-lb. Chihuahua has legs made for the catwalk. "Some Chihuahuas have little short legs, she's got long legs," says foster mom Jennifer Warner, who is director of shelter outreach for Adopt-a-Pet.com. Much like a sashaying model, "she floats when she trots."
The 10-year-old pooch was on death row at a Pasadena, Calif., shelter when Molly's Mutts & Meows animal rescue scooped her up in May. The housetrained and well-mannered pooch was obviously someone's pet, judging by her skills. "She's trained to wait at the door and only go out when you say, 'Okay, go,'" says Warner.
"She's a little doll, one of the easiest fosters I've ever had," she adds.
Quiet and super friendly, Indira loves other animals and is great with gentle, calm children. "I call her Miss Social," says Warner. "Because everyone that passes on walks she's like, 'Hi, hi, hi, hi.'"
The cuddly canine (who will "jump in your lap if you invite her") has a unique white stripe on her shiny black coat, reminiscent of her namesake Indira Gandhi. And like the famous Indian politician, "She's very politically correct in everything that she does."
