Why Choose me?
Spanky is a cute little guy, but he’s also scared so he’s inside in a temporary kennel right now. He let us hold him and even pressed close against us. He’s very sweet and quiet. He’s also fast. After his pictures, we saw him with some other volunteers, and he was on the move. That little Chihuahua can run. I guess since he’s still scared, he was looking for a way home. At only seven pounds, Spanky is a great lap dog and enjoys being held. He’s not crazy about walking on a leash, but he was okay with it as we took his picture and later when we walked him back to his kennel. Spanky needs time to adjust to his new environment. He’s already making progress because when he first came in on the 29th, I didn’t even try to take him from his kennel. Today was a different story, and I hope each day he will continue to feel more at ease. If you’d like to meet Spanky, ask someone at Animal Control to help you while he’s still inside. Maybe you are just the person that Spanky needs to help him feel safe and loved.
From another volunteer: A recent addition to Animal Control, Spanky was apprehensive about leaving the comfort of his kennel. After gentle coaxing, however, he jumped into a volunteer’s arms, clung to her shoulder and was hesitant to release her for outdoor playtime! Once in a grassy area, Vader wallowed on his back and begged for a belly rub. Despite an initial skittish nature, Spanky demonstrated excellent manners. He was comfortable on a leash and adoring of the outdoors. Spanky would lend himself as an entertaining companion to a bustling college student, recent retiree – or any demographic in between!
