Gimli is a very sweet 1-2 year old Chi/Doxie mix. He is a "Velcro" dog that just wants to be by or ON his people. Gimli doesn't like to be left alone. He does great in the house if someone is home. He will just follow you around. He will potty outside, no accidents, if you are home. Gimli likes an open dog crate to nap in. He does not like to be left in a closed dog crate. He will cry, bark and potty in it if left alone more than a few hours. Someone is usually home here so it hasn't been much of an issue. I think with consistency and training he could be crated longer. Fortunately, Gimli is small about 12 pounds and very portable! He loves car rides and road trips! He travels very well. Gimli is great with gentle children . However, children in his home should be older due to his small size. He gets along great with the cats in his foster home. Gimli is selective with his dog friends. He can get along with laid back dogs his size or smaller. Bigger dogs scare him and he will bark and growl at them. He did ok with a submissive 50# foster dog, but he had to be the boss. Gimli loves long walks, sunbathing, kayaking and cuddling. He sleeps all night cuddling in my daughter's bed. He is vaccinated, neutered, and microchipped. His adoption fee is $200. To meet Gimli, please call Teri at 630-897-7454.
