Now for the good stuff!-
So I am really a striking dog. My color and my hair make me unique! My foster mom says that I may be a little dog but I have a BIG personality (as do most Chihuahuas). Hey, know what I really love? Laps! I love to sit on laps so if you are looking for a companion to hang out with you and, be close to you, I'm your guy!
I do need to tell you that I can be possessive of my food bowl. Ya know, living without enough food before I got to Lone Star, can make a fellow worry. So it would be best if I live in a house without little kids because they wouldn't really understand to stay back when I'm eating. And I would never want to get carried away and nip a little kid. So best that I live with teenagers or adults! When I came to LS, I had mange but it's been under control for a long time. If I have a flair up, there's a bit of medication I can take to get back on track. Otherwise, I'm healthy

PS. I've had ALL my vetting, and oh boy, it was a lot. Here's what I had done:
Distemper/Parvo shots – TWICE. One shot doesn't cut it.
Bordetella shots - ALSO TWICE.
A fecal exam so I don't have any bad worms. Treatment if I do.
A heartworm test. Treatment if I am positive for heart worms
BLOODWORK to make sure my liver and kidneys are working well, because you know, we doggies often have issues in the liver and kidneys.
A DENTAL exam AND cleaning if I needed it- yep, all my toofies are checked out.
See, that's a LOT. Ask your vet - that's a LOT.
