Billy Ray is a 2 year old male Chihuahua. He is a cute blond who is a typical little guy. Feisty, but gets along with other dogs; very playful, wants other dogs to play with most of the day. He dances away from you reach for him but comes and gets on your lap or wants to sleep next to you when HE approaches you, typical of Chihuahuas! Billy Ray had 25% of his fur at the time he came to us due to non-contagious but untreated demodex mange. After 4 months of daily doses of his medication, he has about 65% of his fur and much of the rest growing in. He will need daily doses of meds for another 4-6 months. After that we believe he will be able to be on a monthly pill, or even a pill every 2-3 months. The daily medication is easy to give and inexpensive and will be included with his adoption at no charge. It's a liquid that can be squirted into a bite of wet food which he greedily gobbles down! Simple. He does best with a bath once a week or so to help with his itchiness, due to the dry skin. A bit of fish oil in his food will help his skin become softer and less dry. Billy Ray uses a doggie door but as is typical of many small dogs, will sometimes refuse to go outside. We're working on getting him comfortable, so that he knows he is safe outside. This may take some work on the adopter's part as well. Billy Ray loves his person and has a tendency to bond to one person, whom he follows about the house (when he's not playing) and keeps an eye on. When you leave he goes outside and waits for you to return. He's there to greet you at the door, jumping up in the air waist high, to touch you and say how happy he is you came back. Adoption fee waived due to his life-long skin condition which is NOT contagious. Billy Ray is a very active and playful dog, who will do well in a home as the only dog or with other dogs who enjoy play time.
A home visit may be part of the adoption process. To start the adoption process, an online adoption application is available at http://www.petalliesaz.org/dogadopt.php
