My story

Corky is a senior chihuahua x yorkie who is in need of a patient and loving home. This sweet boy can be a little sensitive and submissive at times, but if you take things slowly and gentle with him, he will build trust in you. He loves to be pampered and spoiled. He would be a great lap dog to someone who can shower him with lots of doting attention. He loves to strut around in his knit sweaters and play with his plush toys. Corky does get bothered by lots of noise or hands in his face, so he will need a low foot traffic household with no young children. Corky may do well with other small dogs and possibly cats - pending meet & greets.
