"Hi there, my name is Velcro. That's because I can attach and stick like Velcro to whomever shows me affection or love. I'm a 3 year old black and white male Chihuahua mix and weigh in at around 10 pounds. I just love being with you and nothing else matters. I love toys, but I mostly love my humans. I'm almost house trained but I still have an accident or two...hey, I'm working on it. I'm a little skittish and fearful with people at first, but I can warm up quickly once I get to know you. I get along with all dogs, both big and small. Give me a chance, provide me a forever home and most important of all, give me your love and I promise you I will be there for you through both good times and bad. I will love you forever. And not to brag, but don't you just love my cute little signature under bite??? If you would like to make me part of your family, please complete an online application at and be sure to include my name, Velcro, at the top."
