Hi I'm Herbie! I'm a sweet young mellow fox terrier/Chihuahua mix. I was lost in Commerce and ended up at the shelter. Man was that place scary! I'm such a little guy. I was hoping I'd find a home there but with so many wonderful small dogs to choose from I didn't stand a chance. Which is shocking because I'm amazing with kids! And dogs and even those feline things. I love everyone. I'm housetrained too!
But I was still schedule to die in a cold shelter room - but then I got a reprieve! I caught the eyes of the ladies from Pugs N Roses and they saved me! Score. I went to the vet and got healthy and then I went to this amazing boarding facility. There I spend my days romping in the pool and my nights cuddling with a 7 year old human girl. I'm now in a foster home in Temecula with even more kids! So lucky - and I'm ready for my forever home. Is it with you?
Herbie is a pleasant two year old tan neutered male fox terrier/Chihuahua who was found in Commerce and brought to the Downey Animal Care Center on March 30th. Weighing ten pounds, Herbie walks very well on leash and is probably housebroken. Slightly timid, he warms up to people quickly, and is fine with other dogs his own size. Herbie craves being loved and will make a wonderful indoor companion for a senior citizen or an adult household in any living situation.
My long term foster Herby is still in the search of a new forever loving home. He has made such great improvements. I can hold him and rough house with him and he follows me all over. I wish we could keep him but can't. He is not well suited for younger children. He doesn't like the fast movements of younger children. He is good with older children and adults. He may be shy at first but once he forms the bond he will be a great addition to a family. He is good with all dogs, big and small. Big meaning Great Dane size :) he goes to work with me at my pet hotel and plays very well with other doggy guests and sits by my computer as I work. He is okay with cats, he may try to playfully chase but not aggressively. He has gotten much better with potty training too. He never really has accidents but did mark in the house a few times; this behavior has been decreased by simply letting him out frequently to go potty. He is a loving lil guy and just wants to cuddle up with you, yet he is still playful. He loves to leap through the grass and play with toys. He plays with hands, like he mouths them but does not break skin. He is leaving my foster care and going to another foster mommy so he can get a better opportunity to find his true home. He is a 2 year old neutered male that is up to date on all his vaccines - Please share this info
