Marvin is a 5-year-old tricolored Chihuahua that came from the SJAC Shelter and needed rescue due to chronic ear infections. He is currently in a foster home in San Jose, where he lives with another big dog, and two teenagers. Marvin is very sweet and loves to be with people. Marvin had surgery to repair ear canals plus dental cleaning and teeth extractions. He is fully recovered and pronounced very healthy. Marvin is not suitable for placement in a home with young children; we are looking for an adult household or family with teens.
Marvin is housebroken, perfectly behaved in the home, will do well in a home with another small dog. His foster parents wonder why no one is looking at Marvin, "he is perfectly behaved, listens, and how he enjoys his daily walks". Marvin even went on a small dog pack walk with three other dogs; he got 10 stars that day. Marvin weighs under 10lbs.
