I'm Dallas, a Chihuahua mix, 8.7 pounds around 18 months of age, a neutered male. I'm
Heart worm tested negative, Micro chipped, since this is a dog that will take a chase and may or may not come back.
I'm a dynamo, normally too busy to be a lap dog. i have things to do and places to go. Im full of life, energy and personality, athletic and need to run, Whether that is chasing a ball, a dog, or going for walks. I do great at the dog park. This even helps me gain confidence with people. I only go to the small dog park because if a dog shows dominance I will not back down.
I'm Not recommended for children And do not do well when unfamiliar people tease me, come at me or reach for Me. I do not have a sense of humor about people teasing. Only chosen people are welcome to pick me up. I need time to adjust but once I make a friend I am quite sweet.
From his Foster Mom (Dallas has had a bad beginning in life and is still gaining confidence. He would benefit from the friendship of another dog in the home. At the very least frequent and consistent opportunity to spend time visiting and playing with a doggie friend. This will take the edge off of his energy and his demand that you satisfy his need for activity and attention. He is an Excellent traveller; Excellent going potty onleash. He is not house broken, but great at using the potty box. I would not leave him unsupervised. As long as I am paying attention and read his cues and provide him adequate opportunity to go outside he succeeds. Overnight he has a sleeping area 3 foot by 6 foot that has a large potty box.
He does not like the cold, rain or snow. But snow is fun as long as there is someone to chase. He does wear coats when it is cold or wet outdoors.)
