My “given” name is Chiquita, but like lots of names, people have been using the diminutive, so Kita I’ve become. My family lost their home and left me with a friend to care for until they could take me, but that never happened. My “foster” mom would have kept me, but she had a lot of health issues and wasn’t able to give me the exercise I needed (she also didn’t have much of a yard, so I couldn’t get my daily calisthenics in that way either!). I’m a white, 29-pound, shorthaired, American Eskimo Dog mix (okay, I don’t have the long, plush fur they do, but I’ve got other attributes like their “smile”!) about 10 years old (so I qualify for TALGV’s “Vet Care for Life” program!) and I’m a lovable, quiet and submissive lady. I just know that there’s one more family out there that wants to make the rest of my life complete!
