Meet Sharky. A standard doxie mix with possible chihuahua. Sharky is looking for his forever home. He is extremely loving guy who is happy just to be next to you. Sharky comes from a home where he was living most of the time in a crate. His mother and a brother also came from the same situation. When shark arrived at my home he was slightly on the skinny side and dehydrated. He has gained weight in the short time he has been here. Initially he did well with the pack but after about 24 hours we realized that he really needs to be the only dog in the home. I don't know if he is just set in his ways or if the dogs make him nervous. When he is alone with people he is a great companion loving and adorable. Cats he is curious about and has given chase but comes back with a call of his name.
He would make a wonderful companion to a home where he is the only dog. He has done perfect with every member of my family.
