Hi, my name is Howl. I’m a neutered male Chihuahua/possible Beagle or Dachshund mix. I am 10½ weeks old (born 11/19/23) and weigh 6.5-7 lbs. I am a little shy at first but quickly become very friendly and I am as cute as can be! I’m the smallest of my litter of three (my mom weighs 13 pounds - see her photo below) and I love to run and play inside and am quite rambunctious! I have made up for my smaller size with my littermates by having a bigger voice. I am quite vocal when I play and like to growl, bark, and spin around to make myself bigger to my siblings. I am a smart little guy and very curious about everything. I will take toys into my bed and play nicely by myself as well. Sometimes, I like to play catch me if you can with my people, I think it’s fun and funny. I also like to cuddle and sleep on my person's lap. I sleep well in an indoor expen with my sister and brother at night. I ride well in a crate in the car. I love playing with the very tolerant kitty cat in my house too!
I go potty outside every time you take me out but because I’m a puppy, I pee every few minutes when I’m awake and running around. I occasionally pee and poo on a pee pad in the house, being a puppy, I’m completely unreliable with it and will need someone home to continue my potty training. I’m a puppy so I need to be watched or placed in an indoor expen or crate when left alone, since like all puppies, I’ll chew on everything I can put my face on and require consistent gentle correction.
Puppies require a lot of time, patience, training and a willingness to clean up lots of messes.
I had a small umbilical hernia that was fixed when I was neutered. I am microchipped and am current on age-appropriate vaccines as well as flea and heartworm preventives. My adoption fee is $175.
