Introducing Sterling! You will fall in love with this handsome 2-year-old, 9-pound male Chihuahua! He will remind you of a tiny fawn trotting along beside you. He is a sturdy little guy with a very elegant build! He LOVES walking on a leash for fun and to do his business (which he takes seriously). He loves a routine so if you can walk him regularly, his house training will be a snap. (As with all males, he might want to mark when he first comes to your home, but he will soon stop that once he settles in. A bellyband will take care of his introductory period.) A secure, fenced grassy yard would also be perfect for him but not required as long as you have a great place to go for walks.
He is crate-trained for the night-time and while you are away from the house. He would also LOVE to sleep in bed with you if you prefer because he LOVES blankies. He rarely complains or barks unless other dogs are barking, but even so, he doesn’t bark that much. He would be happy with other little dogs or as a single dog if someone were home during the day. He loves to follow you around the house, sit and snuggle with you on the couch, and generally be a couch potato. He hops right in a car and does just fine on short road trips although we always recommend some sort of restraint when the car is in motion and/or car doors are open. He will try and chase cats if your other dogs do but responds well to correction.
Once he knows his people/pack, he is the absolute best boy! In fact, he’s a dreamboat of a Chi! He will need an adult-only home since he does have a bit of an adjustment period. He’s neutered, fully vetted, up to date with vaccines and heartworm/flea prevention, and ready to be your buddy furever. His adoption fee is $175. Just contact SBRET if you think he’s the perfect Prince for you!
