Maggie is a very friendly, easygoing girl who is happy to meet anyone and is very generous with doggie kisses. She likes to be carried around and cuddled and will paw at your legs to be picked up. Junior is more shy and cautious than his mom and needs time to approach new people, but is quite a snuggly little guy once he trusts you. He's particularly fond of tummy rubs (although at his size, they're more like tummy scratches!) and likes to lay his head against you when he's relaxing.
Both of them are low-key types who prefer cuddle time to action, and would be perfect for someone who is the same. Like typical Chihuahuas, they love to be warm and cozy, and will often seek out a fireplace, the sunny spot in the room, or a thick blanket where they can bury themselves. They will play with each other for short bursts and like to roam around the backyard when the weather is nice. So far, they don't seem to understand the purpose of toys, although Maggie is starting to show a little interest in squeakies (Junior is nervous about them). They're just starting to be introduced to walking on a leash and harness, and can do without regular walks if they have other activity.
The two are well-behaved and easy to live with in their foster home. They're very comfortable being crated, and good in the car either in their crate or held in someone's lap. They're housebroken, although they're best let out every few hours. Maggie is typically friendly with other dogs, while Junior may be wary and barky. The two have not been exposed to cats.
Maggie and Junior have both been spayed/neutered, vaccinated, heartworm-tested and microchipped. They've had dental work, as their teeth were in bad shape. Maggie now has few teeth left, and is fed soft food. They're otherwise in good health, and ready for adoption.
These two are available as a pair only through Grand River All Breed Animal Rescue. The adoption donation is $500 for both dogs. All of our dogs are spayed or neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated as part of their adoption. Please fill out our Adoption Form if you are interested.
