2 YEARS – 8 PDS – LIKES TOYS – LIKES TO SIT AND SLEEP WITH YOU – NEEDS HIS BODY LANGUAGE AND SPACE RESPECTED – QUIET HOME WITH NO KIDS OR OLDER KIDS ONLY
Little Chico is a very handsome small boy, two years old, 8 pounds, good recall, knows his name, housetrained. He likes toys and loves a walk and likes his people, especially to sit beside them or sleep with them in bed. He has some Chi in him, and is a cute little character, a big dog in a small body, fearsome in his way and lets everyone know if something is happening, but does not sit and yap. He likes to snuggle when he knows you. He is possessive of his bed and needs his space respected – before he came to us at Minpinerie, he was frightened by being kept in a crate and when he is frightened, he growls. So he needs to be respected, so we cannot have him with small children who would not leave him alone. He would probably be fine in an apartment, only alarm barking. A quiet home with respectful older children or no kids would be best. He loves to go outside, completely housetrained, loves a walk. Chico needs an experienced owner who can read his body language and know when to leave him be and let him come to you in his own time. He loves treats and his food and allows you to pick him up in a blankie and will snuggle into the blankie…almost as if he has been hurt when picked up, but trusts that he won’t be hurt in the blankie. Chico is reluctant to wade into the foster home pack but is starting to warm up to being with a few of them at times. So he might very well get used to a dog friend in time or a quiet cat for company, but Chico may relax better and prefer a quiet home with no other dogs or cats. Can you offer the right forever home for this little cutie-pie? ——Thank you for your interest in a Minpinerie Rescue Group dog. We are based in the Ottawa area.
