NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - A pup that is famous for his snuggling capabilities is looking for a place to call home.

Belle Starr, is a four-year-old Chihuahua pup who is calm, cool, and curious.

"She's not real high energy. If you just want a companion or you want someone to walk with you, she's going to go with you," said Jessy Wheeler, an animal control officer in Nacogdoches. "She just loves people. She likes to be around others."

After coming to the Nacogdoches shelter just two months ago, Belle is ready for a home and family of her own. She's well-behaved and is one of the most loving dogs you'll meet.

"She's very calm, so someone has spent some time training her and making her into a good dog," Wheeler said.

If you're looking for a more calm and relaxed pup, then Belle is the perfect fit. She gets along with small children and other animals.

"She'd be great for a family with small children because she has very low energy," Wheeler said. "Also for an older couple or an older person who wants just a lack companion."

Despite her size, Belle will make a great watch dog.

"She needs to be inside most of the time, so if you're looking for a good inside pet, Belle Starr will be a good choice for you," Wheeler said.

If you're interested in adopting Belle Starr, you can contact the Nacogdoches Animal Shelter at (936) 560-5011.

They're open from noon until 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays.

Since this story aired Belle found her forever home. A couple adopted her after losing their dog.
