Arnie is 9 years young! Male 8lb. Chihuahua mix was found as a stray and brought in to an area shelter. The shelter was full and Arnie was saved in the nick of time from the urgent/EU list.
He was taken to the vet and is now fully vetted. Arnie is neutered and comes with all recent vet records (vaccines, bloodwork, xârays, full dental, heartworm test negative, etc).
Arnie has been staying with his foster family since September 2016 and is used to living in a home with 3 other dogs. Arnie stays in his crate at night and his puppy pen in the kitchen during the day when his fosters are at work, etc. and is very easy to care for.
Arnie has a pelvic injury that was never properly taken care of by his previous owner. It set and healed where it is and the vet is not able to do anything for it at this point. But his daily pain meds help Arnie with any inflammation or pain and he runs around the house and backyard just fine on his own. He is not able to go on long walks though (but does really enjoy a stroll in a carrier or pet stroller!).
Arnie would do best in a quieter home without children. He is fine around children but he needs to live with a more mature family that is able to be gentle with him, so being around any younger children would not be a good fit for him.
Arnie comes fully vetted with full set of vet records (from local NRH vet), heartworm
medication (enough to last until September 2017), 6 months of flea medication, 2 months pain meds, 2 months of food, crate, bed for the crate, puppy pen, bed for puppy pen,blankets, carrier, food and water dishes. He is moveâin ready!
