Allow me to introduce you to Coyotita, affectionately known as Tita due to her preference for that name. Tita is a bilingual marvel, fluent in both Spanish (the language she responded to in her previous foster home in Texas) and English.

Tita is a social butterfly who thrives in the company of people and most dogs. She handles herself admirably around feline companions as well, even if the cat's opinion differs, demonstrating her respectful nature by giving the cat its space.

Her culinary enthusiasm knows no bounds—Tita is an unabashed food lover. She's highly food-motivated, requiring a slow-feeder bowl to pace herself. Tita is mindful of the rules around her food. You can comfortably stand beside her while she eats, and she'll patiently wait for your signal to begin.

Cuddling is another one of Tita's talents. She adores attention and craves it in abundance. While she might assertively seek affection, she's learning the boundaries of when to stop, demonstrating her willingness to adapt and understand.

Initially, Tita flourished when given ample running and playtime with other dogs. However, her heartworm treatment has limited her physical activity, intensifying her yearning for open spaces and the companionship of others. To keep Tita content, a generous play area and consistent companionship will be essential.

Tita is, in a word, fantastic. Her gentle and affectionate nature makes her a cherished companion.

Coyotita is from Texas.  

One big thing you should know is I am heartworm positive - but please don’t let that scare you away from adopting me! I have already been treated and am currently on activity restrictions for a few more weeks! Heartworm is not a contagious disease.
