Don't let this little boy's scruffy looks and initial shyness fool you, Chivito is all about loving his people and having his people love on him! Chivito is a one year old Poodle mix (he does not seem to shed at all!), who has come a long way with Wonder Pets Rescue. He has learned how to walk on a leash, he knows sit, he is crate trained and most of the way potty trained. Chivito is hesitant to trust, and may run away if approached too quickly. With patience and calm acceptance from his people, though, he will warm up and becomes a goofy, clumsy, affectionate little boy. His foster family says he is definitely worth every second of calm patience and treats and love. Chivito is crate trained and will sleep in a crate all night. He will still need some help learning how to tell someone he needs to go outside to potty. Chivito lived with his brother and sister all of his life and has a little bit of separation anxiety at times when left alone. Mostly, this is expressed by barking for a while after being left alone. Because of this, he is likely not a good fit for apartments or condominiums. His foster family is sure that with time and confidence and a good positive training program, he will overcome this. Chivito is really looking for a family that will take time with him and help him come out of his shell. He would love a family that will be actively involved in helping him gain confidence (perhaps with a nice obedience class?). He does great with cats, chickens and most other dogs, although he may take longer to warm up to larger dogs. He is afraid of the quick movements of younger children, but would do well in a home with teens. Are you that perfect family for Chivito? He has recently been groomed, thank you Muddy Paws Grooming in Auburn! Chivito is neutered, microchipped (with free registration), wormed, and current on routine, bordatella, and rabies vaccinations. Chivito's adoption donation is $350. Please find our adoption application here, Dog/Puppy Adoption Application.
