Say "Hello" to Dobby! He is a sweet senior with the most unique beautiful red-brown coat color, and big pointy ears! He was found as a stray and spent quite a bit of time in shelter, until he was scooped up by Dallas Pets Alive! Now this quiet, laid back guy is ready for a furever home!
Dobby would do best in a quiet, relaxing home environment where his owner/owners preferably have no kids. He doesn't seem to mind other pets in the house, but they too should either be older or less active to match Dobby’s activity level.
You will find that Dobby LOVES to be by your side and will follow you from room to room, always keeping a close eye on your whereabouts. He has adopted the nickname " velcro-dog" to match his companionship. He doesn't seem to have much interest in toys, but does like to chew on doggy bones. When it comes time to feeding his tricks come out! He will stand on his hind legs, put his paws up and take a few steps, which his foster mom gets a laugh from!
Dobby has knee issue known as a "floating patella", which is very common and usually harmless amongst small dogs, especially Chihuahuas. What this means is his knee cap will come out of place temporarily, and he may skip around on 3 legs, till it slips back into place. It’s a typical condition in older Chihuahuas which shouldn’t affect his quality of life.
Dobby is leash trained, crate trained, house broken, and really does love the "couch life". If you want to spoil this older little man with "Lazy Sundays" for the rest of his senior years, he would be overjoyed to spend them by your side! Apply to adopt him today!
