We are pleased to introduce you to Russ! Russ is a perfect little gentleman that weighs about 10 lbs, and is 12 years young. He is a chihuahua terrier cross. He loves his walks and is leash trained to walk close beside you with no pulling – what a good boy! He does his business while on walks, though he is a little shy about asking to go outside while in the house. It’s best to pay attention to Russ for signs that he needs to go out, like floor sniffing.
He is quiet and polite and only gives a few little barks when someone comes to the door, and listens well when he is asked to stop. He is good with children as long as they are respectful. Russ is quite small, so older children would be best for him. He is curious about cats while on walks and doesn’t try to chase them so we think that he would be okay with cats in his home (though he does not live with them right now). He is great with other dogs, both big and small.
Russ loves to be with someone all of the time. He enjoys cuddling, being carried, sitting on your lap and overall just being loved. He does have some separation anxiety when he is left alone, so a detached home would be best for Russ. When you get home he is very happy to see you abd being cuddled for a few minutes calms him right down. He would love a quiet home that is willing to give him all the walks he can handle – he loves them! The more love the better, as well!
Russ is overall healthy and had some teeth removed with us. He does have early stages of cataracts, and mild sublexing patellas that should be monitored through his life. Russ will make an amazing companion, if you are interested in learning more about him please fill out an application!
