Hi Everyone! My name is Jack. If you are looking for a handsome little guy to keep you company, look no further! I’m a blonde male Chihuahua, and I just turned 8 months old. I am at a healthy weight of 5 pounds, and the vet said I look good! I’m a very active boy, and love to play; but when I’m tired I make a great lap dog. I love taking a quick nap on my people, and then wake up to play some more. At night though, I sleep well in a crate.
My foster mom and dad are showing me how to walk on a leash, and I do well at pottying when I’m outside. Because I’m still a puppy though, I need to be taken out quite often. When not taken out enough, I have accidents.
I need a home with an active adult who is home all day, or with a flexible work schedule, so that I’m not alone for too many hours...someone who will give me lots of love and attention, and who will continue to work with me on my leash and potty training. Children under 8 years old, and the elderly, would not be a good match, because I have sharp little teeth and like to gnaw on my people’s fingers and hands. We are working on this! I am initially fearful of other dogs, but get over that with a little time. Though I do great playing with my humans and chew toys, it’d be fun to find a forever home that included another young, small dog who liked to play too.
My foster mom thinks I’m perfect. I hope you feel the same. I’ve been neutered, microchipped, had all the appropriate vaccines, and heartworm/flea prevention. My adoption fee is $175. Contact SBRET if you are looking for a boy like me.
