Pride is short haired, but has some tufts of longer fur around his eyes. His littermate sister was wire-haired and close to twice his size, so we aren't sure what breeds were in their mix. Our guess is Chihuahua, with Miniature Schnauzer, Brussels Griffon or a Terrier breed. Pride came to us with a lot of bald patches but his hair has filled in nicely. He may always have thin hair on his forehead like some black Chihuahuas do.
Pride will need a forever home with someone that has time to work with a young puppy. He can't be left home alone for a typical 9-5 workday. Since he will be such a small guy, we don't think he would be suitable for a home with young children. Pride is learning paper training and even to follow the adult dogs in his house outside.
While Pride is not yet neutered, he will need to be neutered at 6 months of age which the rescue will pay for.
Grateful Dogs Rescue incurs substantial medical and other costs in rescuing our dogs. In order to recoup some of these costs, we must charge an adoption fee. The adoption fee for Pride is $300.
If you are interested in adopting Pride, please complete our online adoption application at http://www.gratefuldogsrescue.org/adoption-process.html. One of our volunteers will get back to you. Adoptions are local, confined to the SF Bay Area.
