Leroy here! If you are looking for a little Velcro chihuahua I’m your guy! I will need sometime to warm up to new people. I was abandoned so need to build up trust with new people. I’m ok with other dogs but prefer my human. Doing good on housetraining will need a little more work though if you are looking for a new best friend please choose me!
