M-I-c-k-e-y C-h-i-h-u-a-h-u-a 🎶 Mickey Chihuahua, Mickey Chihuahua 🎶 Okay, it doesn't have quite the same ring as the original song but Mickey is no mouse, he is a Chihuahua mix and is 7-8 months old and weighs 9½ pounds.
Mickey came to us with a few other young dogs. All were under socialized but Mickey was the most shy. Now that all of his friends have been adopted it was time to push Mickey a bunch so he would be confident enough to find a home of his own. He has made lots of progress and with an understanding new puppy parent he can grow even more.
Mickey's foster mom takes him along on all sorts of adventures. He is most confident when hiking. He just loves it. He is even up for a good jog! He has gone shopping in dog-friendly stores and went to the Starbucks drive thru for a Puppachino. He gets nervous about meeting new people but is getting better. He is also pretty nervous about car rides but the more he goes on the better he will be. He is great about meeting new dogs on his adventures and would love to have a playmate in his new home. He likes to play with toys and chew bones but he is a very good puppy and doesn't chew on the furniture or your fingers. Mickey is doing great with his house training but isn't impressed with rainy days and needs some encouragement to go out. He does now enjoy car rides but was nervous about them when he first came to rescue. He also enjoys additional songs such as "Oh Mickey you're so fine, you're so fine you blow my mind" and "Mickey Mickey Man I want to be a Mickey Man" :)
Mickey's ideal home will be one with a fenced yard, another dog to play with, active and patient puppy parents. An adult home or one with children 12 and older would be best and someone who has daytime flexibility to keep working on Mickey’s socialization and house training. He needs to continue getting out and about so he gains confidence. If that is you please submit an application. He is up to date on his vaccinations, neutered, and microchipped. His adoption fee is $175.
