01/03/16 Herschel does not do well with small children!! 10/14/15 Update! Herschell's foster mom would like for you to know about this special boy. Loves to snuggle, go for walks and especially car rides. His age and cataracts doesn't stop this little man. Hershell is housebroken and crate trained All he wants is love and a forever home. 09/12/15 What is it about senior dogs that warms our hearts??? This little gentleman is Herschel. He is thought to be an 8 to 10 years old Chihuahua. As you can see, Herschel is somewhat vision impaired with his eyes being blue. This can be scary for such a small fellow. He will need time and patience to learn his way around a new home and get familiar with smells and touches of his new person or family. Soft, gentle talking is the way to win Herschel over to help make him feel safe. If someone comes up too quickly on him and attempts to scoop him up without warning, his only defense is to nip. Once Herschel feels safe with his person, he just loves to cuddle and snuggle deep into your chest. Herschel seems to be partial to our male volunteers. He does well with other older, laid back, small dogs. This little sweetie is so deserving of a second chance of having a new home to spend the rest of his golden years, and he promises to ask for too much - a soft bed, good food and a lap to snuggle in. Her adoption fee is $145.00 He is neutered, current on vaccinations, has his annual rabies vaccination, dewormed and micro-chipped.
