Pedro is a sweet and spunky little Chihuahua who is looking to settle into a furever home. Pedro is a little reserved at first, but after a while his spunky, sassy side starts to show. You really can't blame him with everything being new by taking stuff slowly. He lost his human to illness recently and he was separated from his doggie sister due to her need for intensive medical care in another foster placement.
Couch potato humans and TV binge watchers are his favorites, particularly if there is a spot for him on that lap or tagging along on errands. Most humans are awesome to him, though very small humans who get in his face aren't appreciated. Veterinarians who do things with needles and place thermometers in locations he refuses to discuss are also on the bottom of his preference list.
Cats are to be ignored and the test kitty he met was less interesting to Pedro than a whoosh of air coming from the room's air vent. Dogs are cool and playing with his foster fur-siblings is fun. However, very large dogs or hyper-happy types who want to be all up in his face are probably not his cup of tea.
Pedro is housetrained and will quite clearly ask to go out, but hasn’t yet realized he can make the dog door work all by himself. Showing him a leash or his harness is cause for *all* kinds of happy twirling and dancing, even if holding still to put them on is a skill he needs some work on. Walkies and car rides are a blast, but don't expect to skip sharing your drive-thru french fries if Pedro is your co-pilot.
