Meet Socks, a 6-year-old Chihuahua mix, who licks her chops and performs like a circus dog whenever a treat is nearby. This little girl is an affectionate snuggler who loves belly rubs and often falls asleep on the laps of volunteers.
Here are some things you should know about her:
- She is a happy dog with a lot of positive energy.
- She has a sweet engaging personality.
- She loves to play, go for walks and spend time on a welcoming lap.
- She is cooperative during bath time and seems to enjoy it.
- Being a small girl she is the perfect size for an apartment, condo or house.
It’s a sad tale for the plight of Chihuahuas in the shelter system. Socks is just one of thousands hoping for a home. Here’s hoping the magic of Agoura brings a forever family her way, because this cutie pie has been overlooked for adoption since January where she’s been transferred not once but twice from Lancaster to Castaic and now to Agoura.
Socks’ tail is always wagging, and she is looking for her forever person or family to come scoop her up and rescue her. If that might be you, please stop by the shelter to meet her right away.
To adopt Socks, request A4910281. The Agoura Shelter is at 29525 Agoura Road, Agoura Hills. Occasionally pets have already been adopted. To check availability, call 818-991-0071 or visit animalcare.lacounty.gov.
