My name is Gordy. I am a 10-pound, 5-month-old (as of Oct 2) male Chihuahua/Terrier mix. Don’t I have the cutest scruffy face! My foster mom says I am a sweet little guy but am a bit timid at first – I love to curl up in her lap for a nap. Up until now I have not had much of a chance to be outside but I have decided it is pretty cool to play in a yard. All the colors, sounds and smells – I can’t get enough! I love to follow my foster mom and my four-legged foster brothers around the house. My foster mom says I have not figured out toys can be fun yet – but she thinks I will get the hang of them in time. It takes a few days but I will come out of my shell. When I do – you will find me to be the most lovable little guy. My foster mom laughs at me sometimes because when I want your attention I kick my back legs – it is my way of trying to tell her something – then she gets to guess what I want – it is a fun game we play. I will crunch dry kibble like a big boy but prefer for there to be a little wet food mixed in at dinner time. I am working on my potty training. I like to go outside with my foster brothers – I am starting to figure it out but I am still learning and will need someone that can keep working with me on my potty training. I sleep on a soft bed in a crate at night. During the day my favorite napping spot is under the couch. I will need somebody at home part of the day to help me become house-trained and children need to be over eight years old due to my size and shyness. I would not mind having another dog or cat playmate! I am neutered and microchipped and up to date on vaccines, heartworm and flea prevention. My adoption fee is $175.
