Super sweet senior alert! Arnie is 9 years young! Male 9 lb. Chihuahua mix found as a stray and taken to an area shelter. The shelter was full and Arnie was saved in the nick of time from the urgent/EU list. Arnie has an old pelvic injury that happened a long time ago and was never properly taken care of by previous owners. Now that it has healed and set where it is, there isn’t anything the vet can do to fix it. He may walk a little goofy but he gets around just fine on his own. Due to his old injury, he is not able to go for long walks. He also takes small doses of daily pain meds (Tramadol and Rimadyl – not very expensive at all) that really help him out a lot! A house with young children would not be a good fit for Arnie as his is able to get around on his own but not able to balance well enough around small children who may be too rough with him. He is also not a big fan of cats. But great with other dogs!
Arnie is a super sweet, calm, and friendly dog that loves to just hang out and sleep in snugly blankets and be cute. Arnie is neutered and fully vetted (vaccines, bloodwork, heatworm test, x-rays, dental, etc) and his vet records can be reviewed prior to adoption to be assured that he is a healthy little guy. Arnie stays in his crate at night and his puppy pen in the kitchen any time his fosters are at work, etc. and is easy to care for.
Arnie comes fully vetted with full set of vet records, heartworm medication (enough to last until September 2017), 6 months of flea medications, 2 months of pain meds, 1 month of food, crate, bed for the crate, puppy pen, bed for puppy pen, food and water dishes. He is move-in ready!
If you are interested in bringing this little guy into your heart and home, please contact his foster, Jennifer, at (610) 248-8246.
