Captain Blue is a 10-pound, 9-year-old Chihuahua. He's lost an eye somewhere on his journey in life, but that doesn't slow him down a bit. Once Cappy is familiar with his surroundings and comfortable with his people, his true personality unfolds. Though this little guy has experienced his share of difficulties, he has the resilience of a lion. A super sweet, laid-back, tiny little lion. He is very aware and present, always making eye contact when you speak to him. And he's affectionate - one word from you, and he's in your lap giving kisses and waiting for scratches. He likes to go on walks and does well on the leash. He warms up quickly to other dogs and adults - sometimes children make him a little nervous. If you'd like to get on his good side, Cappy loves floppy stuffed animals that are missing most of the stuffing. And socks! He's a quick learner and quite bright, and he comes when you call him. When left home alone, Cappy goes right into his crate and sleeps the day away. He's house-trained, too.One of our volunteers who met Captain Blue said, 'His little tail wagged happily as he trotted around sniffing things out with the most adorable snuffling, grunting sound ever. He kept wagging and smiling as he pushed in to have his little face stroked.' Everyone who's met Cappy has nothing but good things to say about him, and we're excited to help this cutie find his forever home. Captain Blue is currently being treated for congestive heart failure. He needs an adopter who can be vigilant in monitoring Cappy's coughing episodes, energy level and attitude, his activity level and appetite. His foster mom listens to his lungs weekly to check for fluid in case he needs to go to the vet to get his meds adjusted. Needing to increase medications is a normal progression in maintaining a heart failure patient and Captain Blue requires exceptional attention. Captain Blue came to us from Monterey County Animal Services.
