Cyrus is a true gem! He is a 3-4 year old pekingese/chihuahua mix who weighs about 10 pounds. He walks politely on a leash, never begs, sleeps silently at the foot of bed, housetrained, greets dogs politely, great at the dog park, zero food aggression, never annoying- does not beg, whine, or demand petting, very eager to please but also entertains himself happily, hangs out on the couch and refuses dog beds!
He would love a quiet home without lots of guests. He is a follower and looks to dogs before people when he needs "help" with something- could easily become a bad dog if matched with an untrained alpha.
He loves small female dogs and is never dominant and displays no sexual dominance either. He loves to wrestle with my mother's female doxie mix and would do great in a home with another friendly dog. He has never been home alone without another animal present and would love to have a dog or cat friend.
He has limited experience with children. His reaction ranges from friendly to ignoring the children he has met since I got him. He will it take a treat from a child. He is fearful of school busses and has barked in fear when children get off then bus. I do not fully trust him around school aged boys. His reaction to children yelling is usually confusion and fear (hiding and barking not aggressively though). He would prefer a home without children or where the children were dog savvy and did not chase him.
He does great with cats! He desperately wants my cat to love him as his best friend was an outdoor cat at his previous home. Cyrus is the perfect little guy and would love to find his perfect fit! Is it you?!
