Cruz is a 5 month old male Chihuahua mix. He currently weighs almost 9lbs and still may have some growing to do. He was found as a stray and is now looking for his forever home! Cruz is a shy but friendly boy who loves to be held close to you and cuddled once he has warmed up. He enjoys playing with toys and other small dogs, but has no history being around larger dogs or cats. However, if there are any in the home an introduction can be done. Cruz does well with women but has no history with men or children. Due to him being timid, he can nip when startled; so no children or older children are required. Cruz is still learning to be house broken, so a home with time and patience is ideal. He is kennel trained, rides well in the car, and learning to walk on a leash. Cruz would do great in an active or low active home. His adoption fee is $260. He is neutered, up to date on vaccines, microchipped, licensed, and vet checked. His adoption comes with 30 days of free pet insurance and a free vet visit.

Our Adoption Process...

To adopt a dog from Small Dog Rescue we require a legal adoption contract signed, an adoption fee which ranges depending on the dog. All of our dogs are required to be indoor dogs, never to be locked out of the home. We also require all dogs to be returned to us in any event that adopter can not keep.
