First, you must fully appreciate how “lucky” you would be to have me as part of your family. Wouldn’t want you taking for granted what a sweet, sensitive, and lovable guy I am.
My name is Lucky and just like a fine wine at 8 years old I am aging beautifully. I was given up, along with another dog, because my family was moving and couldn’t take me along. Because I was quite traumatized by this unexpected change in my life, Animatch felt that I could use the one-on-one attention of an experienced Foster Mom. She has truly restored my faith in humans.
To start with, you must do your research on Chihuahuas to make sure that I am the right breed for you. Second, I ask that when you take me home, you allow me the opportunity to warm up. Take things slow and easy, let me trust you. Snuggling will surely come in due time.
I am good with other dogs and love being outdoors; I will never say no to a nice walk. My foster Mom says I can be quite the escape artist, so a securely fenced yard is a must. Apartments/condos would not be for me simply because I am quick to sound the alarm at trespassers – be they the Fedex guy, a dog passing by, or a squirrel in search of nuts. I’m going to let you know loud and clear. Children over 12 would be just fine too as they are old enough to understand how to show a wee guy some respect. Grabby hands will have me frightened and reactive.
In addition to some nice soft doggy beds, I do enjoy cuddling up with my human at the end of the day. In the beginning, you can provide me with a safe and quiet place to relax if I get overwhelmed. If you like watching movies, I can be your guy! Don’t worry about me waking you up to early in the morning, I am not an early bird.
Of course, a refresher in toilet training can be expected. You know how it goes with Chis; any disruption in our lives sets us back a few steps. I do go on peepads but it can be hit and miss.
So, I’m on the lookout for a home where I will get all of the training and love I need to be the best dog I can be! So how about letting me grace your home and your heart? Fill in the Application Form if I am the dog for you.
