Facts about Jimmy

  • Breed: Chihuahua Mix
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
Jimmy was rescued from a horrible situation where 30+ Chihuahuas were found in an old trailer. They had apparently been left to fend for themselves. Rescuers found no food or water in the trailer and reported that every surface was covered in feces. The dogs all seemed to be feral and behaved as though they had never been handled by people. They were sick, filthy, and terrified. Jimmy has been in foster care for several months now and is making good progress. He will now take treats from his foster mom and will even let her pick him up if she is slow and gentle about it. Jimmy has an extremely sensitive personality and it has taken him a long time to settle into the routines of his foster home. But now that he knows he is safe, he is doing really well. He is crate trained and doing great with his housetraining. He gets really excited to see his foster mom when she gets home and will stand up on his hind legs and do his "dance of joy" when he first sees her. He gets along okay with other dogs, but doesn't seem too interested in playing with them. After having to fight for scraps of food for so many years, he is understandably a little protective of his food/treats/toys when it comes to the other dogs. Jimmy LOVES his squeaky toys and will entertain himself by throwing them up in the air and catching them. Despite the cruelty and neglect he has suffered in his life, Jimmy still has a very sweet and gentle personality. He deserves to find that perfect home that will love and spoil him for the rest of his life. While he will certainly present some unique challenges for his new family, he has so much to offer and will make a great little companion for the right person. Because Jimmy is still so very afraid of people, he would not do well in a home with children. Jimmy is approximately 4 years old and weighs approximately 10 lbs. He is neutered, current on vaccinations, heartworm negative, and microchipped.
