Sheldon was 2 1/2 weeks old on May 7, 2012 when we rescued him and his two sisters from Lafayette Animal Control. One sister looked pure Chihuahua, the other sister looked like a Rat Terrier. Sheldon looked like a mix of Chihuahua, Terrier, and Pomeranian. His fur is fluffier then his sisters and his tail reminds us of a Pom tail. Since Sheldon was a bottle baby, he has a sweet and affectionate personality, and he loves to be held and will snuggle for as long as you let him.
Sheldon is now seven months old, and is only about 6 or 7 pounds. He has tiny feet, so he should remain a small dog when full grown. He is very playful and loves to run and enjoys playing with balls and other toys. He is good with most dogs and cats. He also is smart enough to avoid cats that don't like him.
Sheldon is neutered, up to date on his vaccinations, microchipped, dewormed, defleaed, and on heartworm prevention. His adoption fee is $150.00.
