“The Shadow”, black clad man of mystery…no not really, just a black, sweet, shy, 2 1/2 year old little Chihuahua mix waiting to be your ray of sunshine! Empty nesters, this guy is for you…he wants to be your new baby! He just wants to be hugged and snuggled and go everywhere with you. Although he gets along famously with multiple dogs of all sizes and an old cat, he really loves his people the most. He is quite possessive of foster mom’s affection, and will do his Chihuahua growl when the other dogs come near him while on her lap, but very harmless and responds to “no”. I think he really wants to be the only star in someone’s eyes! Well behaved, quiet, easy on leash, good in car, will follow you everywhere and sit on your lap if on computer or well.. pretty much sitting anywhere. Sometimes he is mistaken for the black cat because he likes to curl up on high places or in baskets in the bathroom. He is very agile and slender. In foster care, he has not been off leash while on walks, but 100% he could be if you were hiking or walking where it was safe to do so. He is a follower. He is really good with house training with only a few accidents, at this point, he will not indicate that he needs to go out, so he is brought out to do his business often, after meals etc., like you would an older puppy. He would do better in a home without small children and with someone who has the time to spend, and to spoil this little guy. Also he does not like the crate he was surrendered with, not used in his foster home, and would do better without one in his new home.
