Hi there! My name is Delilah and I came to Ruff Start from Texas originally. I currently weigh 12 lbs.

My foster mom says I'm the sweetest little dog you can imagine. I'm quiet and gentle and I do not like anything noisy or rowdy. I'd love my forever home to have calm, gentle people. I do like small, chill dogs and cats but would be perfectly happy as an only pet. Lots of activity makes me uncomfortable and I am afraid of barking dogs.

There are two must haves I need in my forever life. They are that my person MUST be home 24/7 and I MUST be allowed to sleep in bed with my human. I have severe separation anxiety and I want to be able to see my person at all times. I am hard of hearing but I follow hand signals beautifully and when I see them I come running. My best life would be as a lap dog for someone who is always home, has no children or other animals and has a generally quiet household. Oh you need to also know that I know eat Purina One chicken based wet food. I love it, but other foods upset my tummy to no end. I am proud to say I am 100% potty trained but because I'm a little on the elderly side I do need to be let outside frequently. Do I sound like a good fit for you?

If you are interested in getting to know me better, please fill out an adoption application. An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal and is not a binding contract.
