Chihuahua|Male|10-12years old|8 lbs|Adoption Fee $200
Hello, my name is Elmer! I’m the sweetest little man, or so I hear. I was rescued from Waukegan, where I was found in desperate need of grooming and a dental. Luckily I am living the good life now, and I hope to find a forever home that will spoil me senseless!
A little bit about me - I am a very social guy who loves all people that I meet. If you scratch my butt, I will quickly learn that you are good for pets! I also love other dogs. I currently live with one small dog and some large dogs. I try to engage in play occasionally, but I’m not super flexible and the big dogs don’t know how to play with me. I’m cool with co existing and just wandering around the yard together too. That’s fine. I may not be the most athletic dog, but I do love to explore the house and roam the yard. I would be an excellent walking partner for someone who wants a slower pace. I do not live with kids, but my foster parents think I would do well with them as long as they are gentle with me. I don’t live with cats, but my foster parents say I would likely be amazing with them.
I am crate trained and know to go potty outside. The first couple days in my house I tried to mark, but I was a little irritated from having surgery, and I haven’t done it since! I don’t really do stairs so I need help going up and down them. It’s not a big deal because I love to be held and cuddled.
If you’re looking for a small, social, lower energy dog, then you should apply to meet me!
