How do you fix it...?

If it's a non-human, non-Pit Bull, family member, post it here!

She was found running out in the county, actually in the next county over.
She's not YOUNG but not old either. I'm thinking 2-3?
And has had puppies who KNOWS how many times. The vet pulled teeth. She's got an underbite.
And nobody really wants her. I had inquiries until I put up her photo :(
How do you dress a dog like this up? How do you turn her "cute"? How do you "market" her? She's only 14 or 15lbs. for gosh sakes. She should have been adopted already!

I don't know what breed(s) she is, but maybe a shave would make her look different? Not that she isn't cute....

In her bio, add things like: Lap dog because of her size? Apartment sized? (If you allow people in apt.'s to adopt).

I think she's adorable! That underbite is so cute!

Rather than shave her down (I love her curls), maybe put some pink bows on her ears? How is her personality? Does she have any funny quirks that would make her endearing?

She'd be a great pet for a senior citizen -- past the puppy stage, easy to care for because she won't require a lot of grooming, small and "portable", LOL.

She's not that shaggy - maybe it's the way it looks?
Maybe I'll put some clothes on her. :)

Maybe her underbite makes her look mean?

She looks like she may have a bit of cocker spaniel in her. What do you list her as? People love cockers! :|

Actually because of her size I have her as a Cavalier King Charles X Chihuahua (Chis are so common in this area). And I had a ton of inquiries until I got her photo posted :oops:
I think I'll put a pink Old Navy Polo on her :)

Well you may have had a lot of interest because you put CKC mix up and when people saw her photo they realized she's likely part Cocker instead. That would just be my guess. Maybe just listing her as a Spaniel X or as a Chi X would generate some more interest.
I agree with the bow idea. Something cute like that might really help.

My Bearman (RIP) had an underbite that was quite comical. It actually made him more endearing to look at.

Have you gotten any clothes to dress her up in, yet?

I agree with the girly collar. I think she is almost all cocker, no? She is cute :)
