FREDDIE IS A LONG HAIRED CHIHUAHUA!
8/14/16 - Freddie is doing very well in his foster home. He is a very laid back dog, but MUST be introduced softly to new people or he will nip at ankles and legs. If introduced properly and slowly, he does fine. He would be a great only dog, or with other dogs that don't want to play with him. He will also need a home that is very calm and without children. He absolutely loves sleeping with his humans. He is a sweetheart that needs a non-chaotic home and a mom and/or dad that wants to give him alot of attention.
5/29/15 - He walked out into traffic as if he were oblivious to the cars flying around him. Lost, emaciated, weak and missing hair from the waist down, Freddy had not had a good day in quite some time. But, to his surprise, some great people scooped him up out of harm's way and brought him to animal control so his owners could be found. This is where it gets even more pitiful.... days turned into weeks and no owners were looking for Freddy. So, they reached out to rescues and one of the YHR foster moms (who has a passion for chihuahuas) rushed over to save him.
Freddy has been in foster home for awhile getting the love, attention, food and vetting he so obviously needed. He weighed 5.2 lbs. upon arrival and is now a good 7 lbs. and has a nice soft healthy coat. He is such a sweet, loving, appreciative little guy that is devoted to his people. He can be timid at first meeting new people and acts as if he is protecting his humans, but with a sweet voice and gentle/petting hand, he melts right away. He loves to sit in laps. He's playful with other pups when approached for play, relaxed and chill otherwise.
He likes treats when offered, but not extremely food motivated and often must be called more than once for meals. He will gladly walk away from his bowl if another pup goes up to it, so better to feed him alone if you have any chow hounds already in the house. He loves sleeping with his humans, but if the bed is full, will roam around and pick another spot.
Giving this adorable long-haired Chihuahua a home is a no-brainer, and even though he is the one in need of a home, his adopter will definitely be the one who is lucky.
