Monchichi, the 6 to 8 years old, little long-haired Chihuahua, is looking for a calm home filled with soft dog beds, endless belly rubs and unlimited squeaky toys.  He loves to lie next to his person and nap knowing that he is safe and loved.  Walks are his next favorite things as well as wading in the kiddie-pool on a hot day. 

Monchichi's story is a sad one.  Dropped off at the pound after his previous owners noticed he hadn't moved all day.  Instead of seeking vet care, they wanted him put down.  Lucky for Monchichi, the people there decided to give him a bath and found that he had a large gash on his back and leg most likely from being attacked.  The volunteers gave their own money and time to get him to a vet who patched him up.  During his time at the vet, he was diagnosed with Cushing's Syndrome and put on medication which he will need for the rest of his life.  Cushing's is a manageable disease.  His medication cost only $10 a month at this point.  Cushing's can limit a dog's lifespan but since dogs are usually 12 years old and older when diagnosed, it is hard to predict how it will affect each dog's longevity.

Monchichi currently lives in a foster home with 4 other dogs of all sizes.  They tolerate him and he tries to stay out of their way.  I think he would be ok as an only dog.  I don't know how he is around cats.  He is 16 pounds and needs a controlled diet and exercise.  Monchichi is possessive of his food and toys and for that reason he should not be in a home with small children.  He prefers a safe spot such as a crate or dog bed under a table where he can hang out and relax without fear of being stepped on.

Monchichi is neutered, up to date on shots, and will receive his microchip before adoption.

We're just a bunch of dog lovers who are trying to help as many furry souls as we can. The animals live with us so we know their personally and what would be the best fit for them. All of our Dogs and Cats our part of our family and we want that for them at your home. WE DO NOT ADOPT OUT DOGS TO HOMES THAT WANT TO KEEP THEM OUTSIDE ALL THE TIME THEY ARE NOT YARD DOGS.
