What kind of home would be best for me: Chalupa is a young man whose personality is waiting for the right person to shape and mold him. He would do better with a small dog as a buddy in his new home as he loves to play. His person needs the time and the desire to devote to his training and socialization. He's had none. He is not a child's dog and will not be placed in a home with children under 14 years old. He's so small he could be easily hurt by accident by a child looking to play with him.
What is my personality like: He is fine with being picked up and held, and likes to sit next to you. He is interested in new environments but does not bark. He does not know how to sit, but he was learning quickly with me. He likes soft treats of course, and in tiny pieces!
It took me a few minutes to get him to play with toys, but he loves the tennis ball that squeaks and chases it! He also likes the animal slinky like toy and for you to drag it across the floor for him to chase. Chalupa ignores the cat, but I personally think he would like another dog to hang out with. This is a very affectionate pup and enjoys giving kisses. Chalupa is still very young and his personality is growing every day!
How do I act when I first meet new people: Chalupa is happy to meet you, and approaches anyone who comes into his area with a wagging tail. However, his life experience is very limited. He will need slow and gentle socialization and introduction to new things and new people to become a well rounded young man.
Tips and Tidbits: Chalupa will not need professional grooming and does great with brushing. Chalupa isn't quite sure what to do on a leash yet, he will stop and go and needs encouragement.
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.
