Beautiful Bonita is a very special dog.  She’s been with her rescue group, Life4Paws, for some time now and has even got in on a bit of the rescue efforts.  She’s been there to comfort other scared dogs brought in through the rescue program time and time again, and now the rescue people think it’s time that she gets a little bit of her own comfort for a change, so they’re trying to find her a forever home.

Let’s see what Life4Paws has to say about Bonita:


Meet Bonita!

This lovely senior lady has fostered so many dogs at Life4Paws. She is always there to help the new shelter dogs adjust to life at our rescue. Now Bonita deserves some love and attention of her own. She may be 8 years old but Bonita is full of energy. She is happiest when held, or curled up in a lap. Bonita is very affectionate and loves to give kisses. She enjoys playing with other dogs and despite her 5lb size, is usually the alpha of the group.


This beautiful pure-bred Chihuahua was adopted from Life4Paws when she was a puppy into a wonderful home. Sadly after the birth of their first child the couple had to return Bonita because the baby was allergic. We welcomed Bonita back into our rescue and are looking for her next family. Small but mighty, this senior lady deserves a loving forever home to live out the rest of her long life.
