I am not good with kids and good with cats.
Color: Red and white
Breed: Chihuahua and Miniature Pinscher Mix
Age: 2 Years 1 Month
Diego is a shy, timid boy looking for an experienced, adult only home.
Big fan of: Diego needs some time to warm up to new people and needs you to sit down with your shoulders turned away and to slowly encourage him towards you with treats. Towering over Diego makes him very nervous and this type of behavior will need to be avoided. Once Diego realizes you aren't going to eat him, he loves having his belly and chest rubbed.
Special Features: Diego will need to be signed up for positive reward based obedience before his adoption can be finalized; he needs some confidence boosting and socialization.
Dream Home: Diego could live with a confident cat that won't let him chase after him and he could potentially live with a confident dog as well, but he will have to meet any potential canine siblings. Diego will need to go to an adult only home that is used to little dogs and how to best handle them.
