Ruff Ruff! My name is Barron
|Size:||Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less||Sex:||Male|
I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, not good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Barron is a wonderful little Chug- that's half Chihuahua and half Pug. He is a very special boy. He had to have his front left leg amputated after an accident, but we never say he's missing a leg, because he doesn't miss it at all! Barron can still run like the wind, and play fetch and tug-o-war with the best of them. He absolutely LOVES to play with toys- especially ones that squeak. His very favorite game, though, is 'get the hand' with his people. He growls ferociously and tries very hard to be convincing, but everyone who knows him knows he's really a little marshmallow! To see a video of Barron in action, check out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1AoVZOygixc. He does great with the other small dogs and cat in his foster home, but if you want him to be an only child, we know he would be thrilled!
When he's done playing, Barron likes to have snuggles and cuddles with his favorite people. He's definitely a lap dog, but it's important that his new family never leaves him on any furniture or a bed that he could jump off of and injure his remaining front leg. Likewise, although he can negotiate a couple of stairs just fine, he'll always need to be carried up and down flights of stairs and may have a hard time negotiating a dog door when he is older (though he does just fine with them now). Barron is very talkative, and will tell you all about it if he feels you're not giving him the attention he needs or something equally important comes up. It's very cute! Barron has been waiting a long time for his special family to find him, and he doesn't want to wait anymore. If you'd like that family to be yours, please fill out an application to meet him today!

Rescue Group Info...
CRT does not warehouse dogs in a shelter. As in most rescue groups, our dogs are cared for in healthy, safe, loving foster home environments. CRT foster parents work very hard to be sure that their foster dog feels safe and loved while working on housetraining, crate training, socialization, etc. All our dogs are spayed/neutered, fully vaccinated, heartworm tested, fecal tested, microchipped, on heartworm preventative and have all other veterinary needs taken care of (such as heartworm treatment, dentals, luxating patellas, etc.) CRT is known, and has always been known, for taking the injured, infirm and elderly Chihuahuas and Chihuahua mixes. Please consider the adoption of one of these dogs as well. Seniors and special needs dogs make great pets too!
CRT hold various opportunities to meet the dogs looking for homes in our group. These locations, times, and places are listed on our website: www.chihuahua-rescue.org.
CRT accepts applications, checks references and requires a home visit. An adoption donation is requested. CRT does not have a shelter and all dogs are fostered in the private homes of our volunteers. Once an application is submitted the foster of the dog inquired about will contact the potential adopter to answer any questions about the dog.
