Meet An Adoptable Dog
Breed: Chihuahua (short coat)
Weight: 8.4 lb
Height: Estimated 9-10 in at the shoulder.
Estimated Birthdate: 2/5/2015
Fence Needed: Luke can be fearful and is working on leash training, so a fence would be ideal
Location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC
Date into rescue: 3/11/2017
Reason for being in rescue? Owner release from a hoarding situation
Special Needs?Needs to continue working on socialization.
What kind of home would be best for me? Luke needs a home with a family that can understand his situation and his need for learning to trust. He is generally ok with female dogs, but is not a fan of male dogs at all. He would probably be best as an only dog simply because he really wants to be his person's #1. He is starved for attention and affection; his life will be made if could be someone's special little boy.
What is my personality like? Although Luke has made improvements, he is still fearful of people. He has his favorites here at the farm that he will let love on him, but if you are not one of those people, then he hides in the corner. Luke will be a loyal and loving lap dog with continued work and patience.
How do I act when I meet new people? Fearful
Tips and Tidbits: Luke is working on leash training, crate training and basic commands. He always responds to his name and will come right to you when called.
House trained? Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained. A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.
Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.
Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
