Meet An Adoptable Dog
Breed: Chihuahua (short coat)
Weight: 10 lbs
Estimated Birthdate: 7/24/2011
Fence Needed: No
Location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC
Reason for being in rescue: Papi and the other animals in his home were surrendered to a rural animal shelter in North Carolina by owners who were moving and didn't want to take their pets.
Special Needs: none noted.
What kind of home would be best for me? Papi will do best in a a calm home that will love him and his friend Margie together. They are bonded to each other and need a home that will accept and love them both. Owner Experience Level 4: Second or third dog, no experience with behavior or medical issues other than routine end of life issues
What is my personality like? Papi arrived fearful, and cautious of everyone. Who could blame him: But a few days later he was willing to jump in laps and beg for attention. Papi is a fabulous lap dog if someone would just give him patience, and a lot of treats. He does not care for toys but loves treats. He is actually pretty smart and highly treat motivated. Papi knows how to sit, lay down, roll over, and dance! Papi is bonded to his poodle wife Margie.
How do I act when I first meet new people: Timid but friendly
Tips and Tidbits: Papi would love to go to a home with Margie, his sister.
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.
