Coomba is available for adoption

Coomba has been graciously sponsored by Marie B.


Hello there!

My name is Coomba, but my foster parents sometimes call me Coombaya (admit it, you are singing!).

I was found as a stray in the province of Quebec and arrived to Ontario in quite a rough shape. My ears were badly infected, but I was in so much pain that I would not let anyone clean them up. My mouth was in pain, but I was so scared I would not let anyone even look at it. My vet later discovered that I had a big polyp on my tonsils. All of this was taken care off during my dental cleaning and I already feel so much better. I was also recently neutered. It was quite an adventure too: they had to look for one of my two… hum hum… you know what.. in my abdomen because it actually never descended when I was a puppy. I am estimated to be about 14 years old. I have old ribs that can sometimes be painful so I will have to be on a small dose of Metacam (anti-inflammatory). I will have to get yearly blood tests to make sure my kidneys and liver are able to metabolize the drug safely.

… but enough with the boring medical stuff. There is so much more to say about me! I think my best features are my big eyes and my furry ears. I am fully house-trained. I do not mind being left alone while you are at work. I will keep myself very busy doing one of the things I like best: having a nice, long nap! It’s not hard to get good sleep when you cannot hear a thing! I am very easy going. There are two other chihuahuas in my foster home and we all get along just fine. They are both calm seniors just like me though and I think this is what I would be looking for in my forever home… otherwise when would I be able to nap! I enjoy going for walks outside. I sometimes even run a bit, but it would be preferable for me to wear little socks because I have some scars on my feet. I would prefer a home without young children as I need to be handled very gently. I am slightly underweight at the moment, but my foster folks are working on it. I am on a raw diet kindly provided by Iron Will Raw and I absolutely love it. I enjoy being wherever you are. I follow foster dad everywhere he goes! I will sometimes ask to come on the couch and will take advantage of this time to nozzle your hand for extra pets. However, when I will have had enough, I will simply hop off like a little bunny and lay in a bed nearby.
