Facts about Joey

  • Breed: Chihuahua Mix
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
Hi! My name is Joey. I am an adult Chihuahua and I have the energy of ten puppies! Ok, maybe not that many puppies, but I sure do have a lot of energy! Are you looking for a compact hiking or jogging buddy? That's me! I love to go on long hikes with my foster mom and find sticks that are twice the size of my body to drag home. Would you like a companion for the energetic dog in your life? That's me, too! I love playing with my foster brothers from sun up to sun down!

I like mental exercise as much as I like physical exercise. Toys like kongs that make me work for treats are great and I love to learn new tricks!

My foster mom says that I have a typical chihuahua temperament. It takes me a while to warm up to new people and once I do, I am very protective of them. I am also very protective of my possessions and have some minor resource guarding issues (generally directed towards people, not other dogs) because of this. For these reasons I would do best in a relatively quiet, child free home. If you are patient with me, have the time to work with me, and give me plenty exercise I will repay you with a lifetime of love and laughter.

My foster mom also says that I look a little bit like Steve Buscemi. I don't know who that is, but if he's anything like me he must be one funny, cool dude!
