Facts about Chuy

  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
This cute little guy is Chuy. He was a stray dog in the streets of Juarez, Mexico. The rescue that we work with down there has done a wonderful job of getting him rehabbed and in great shape to find his forever home. Chuy is a one year old terrier mix and weighs about 8 lbs. He used to be really shy but we have found that playing with other dogs and being with humans as helped bring him out of his shell. He absolutely loves to play with dogs around his size. We therefore think he would be best in a house with one or more similar size dogs to play with. He is also pretty smart because he learned how to use the dog door within the first hour of being in the fosters home. Chuy is house trained, walks well on leash and loves to play with his toys. If you're looking for a nice companion and you're willing to have patience with Chuy to make him comfortable in your home, please complete an online application at and be sure to include his name, Chuy, at the top.
