Coomba is available for adoption
Coomba has been graciously sponsored by Marie B.
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.
