Spayed or Neutered,
Hi! I’m Joey and I was adopted by my mom in February of 2023. Mom has recently passed away, and now I’m back at AAP, looking for another nice, quiet home. I’m a very handsome red long-haired Chihuahua weighing 10 lbs, and I must say that in all of my 13 years I’ve become quite a flexible senior gentleman. I can head out to do my business in the morning, then check in for breakfast, and then nap on the sofa or the dog bed. If you’d like to run errands, I’m your man. I love to ride in the car and be the best little companion you’ve ever seen. I’m very loving and hope to spend some time just cuddling with my new family. I’ve discovered that I would do best living with another older dog that is small, like me, and very laid back, so we can take turns checking on each other, laying out in the sun, and maybe fussing over the bully sticks. Any dog that is bigger than me, or kinda outspoken and in my face, keeps me very agitated and upset. I might be okay being the only doggie in the house if someone in my family would be home most of the time to love on me, and not keep me crated all the time. I’ve been sleeping in bed with foster mom at night, and have become kinda spoiled. I’m working on potty training … let’s say I’m still a work in progress. I do have chronic dry eye which requires daily medication for the rest of my life. I’m up to date on all my shots, am heartworm negative, on heartworm and flea preventative, neutered, microchipped, and de-wormed. Joey’s adoption fee is $250. WE DO NOT ACCEPT PERSONAL CHECKS. Out of state adopters are responsible for arranging transport. WE DO NOT SHIP DOGS. If you're looking for a very sweet and lovable little guy to join your family, please fill out an application on AAP’s website.
