This precious boy is one of 16 Chihuahuas surrendered to our local shelter. They were all varying degrees of shy and timid...there are 4 boys left and Bastian was lucky to find himself with a wonderful foster mom who just wants to get him ready for a forever home. He will need a special one...lots of patience, love and guidance while he learns to trust and bloom. Best thing to do is post foster's words...
Bastian has a submissive personality when it comes to other dogs. He’s been tolerant of the puppy in our house, and he’s also done well with the bigger adult dogs.
He loves stuffed toys and Nylabones. He’s a gradual eater, never rushed or overly interested in food.
He’s just now learning to cuddle and be affectionate towards me, and it took several weeks to get to this point. He came to me skittish and fearful (but not nippy). Building trust with him has been key to his progress. It has also helped him to see how the other dogs, both foster and resident, interact with me. Occasionally, he’ll even sit on my lap or rest his head on me. He has even given a kiss or two lately!
Bastian sleeps in a crate at night. I would say he still needs work on house-training, as he’s prone to marking. (Male doggie diapers solve this problem!)
If I try to approach Bastian, he will run and hide. It’s best to let him come to me when I’m sitting on the couch. He’s noticeably uncomfortable when being held. I’ve been letting him out in my fenced in backyard (100% secure) to go potty. He seems to do well with that and is always anxious to come back inside. He has also gone potty for me while on lead.
He is a very special guy and we know his FOREVER FAMILY is out there! Bastian is about 8-10 months old and around 10 pounds. He is neutered and current on all vaccinations, wormers, monthly flea/tick/heartworm control. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org
if you are interested...we can answer any questions and send a ton of pics and videos...he honestly has the best foster!
