Special Needs? Chaz has a 3/6 heart murmur but does not require medicine at this time. He just had successful cataract surgery to restore his vision.
What kind of home would be best for me? Chaz is looking for a home with soft beds and soft hands. He wants to live basking in warmth and love. Chaz has been badly neglected but it has not affected his sunny personality. Chaz needs a home with another dog in it. He loves snuggling with other dogs.
What is my personality like? Chaz is as sweet as can be. He is super tiny. Chaz loves other dogs, and is fine with cats. He does okay on a leash. Chaz has very few teeth and will need a soft diet for the remainder of his life. He would do well in a low energy, quiet home. Maybe somewhere with a nice fluffy pillow in front of a roaring fireplace. Chaz has done very well with house training in his foster home.
How do I act when I meet new people? Friendly
Tips and Tidbits: The shelter where Chaz came from said he was 5. We believe Chaz is at least 9. His paperwork will say 5 but he acts older or he has had a really rough life.
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.
