Joe is a Chihuahua or Chihuahua mix. He is solidly built at 8 pounds, a light yellow tan with some white around his face. The vet thinks he is around 4 years old. He has been fixed and his shots are current. He has a very sweet serious nature and is always following either me or my hubby around. Hubby says he is needy. I say he is affectionate. He insists on sleeping between us, touching both of us at the same time, same on the couch. He has an endearing face and loves to be petted. He did not seem to be trained, but he now uses the doggie door to "go" on his own, and will also respond to commands to "go" when I take him outside. He plays well with other dogs and gets along with the cat.

Joe is a Velcro dog, and he craves human company. He would do well with someone who is home a lot of the time. He has the temperament to fit in well with someone who wants a dog that can go into the workplace with them. Joe also does well with children. He is a great comfort companion. He has a peaceful presence and is happy to cuddle or just be in close contact on a couch or chair. Joe is not completely quiet. He has a sharp bark he uses to alert me of the presence of intruders. On sunny days when I am busy, Joe goes out in the back yard and basks in the sunshine. He is a pleasure to have around.

Please contact me if you are interested in giving Joe a loving home, or know someone who you could pass this ad along to.
