Pupdate May 27, 2021 Foster mom wants to let everyone know that I am learning how to get along with all of the other pups in my foster home. She now feels that with time, patience and a slow introduction I would be able to share my new home with another dog. So if that "only dog" requirement has been holding you back-- now is your time to send in that application!! Hey-- I'm a Chihuahua, I'm picky and take my time making friends!!:) But I still don't like big dogs-- so no pups over 20 pounds for me Pupdate 3/29/2021 I have been neutered and am ready to go to my forever home. Since my intake, my foster parents have made a decision that I should be the only pup in the home. I have some jealousy tendencies that require me to be the only pup. When my family pays attention to another pup, my jealousy jumps out and I will pick a fight with that pup. Foster daddy is trying to teach me the right way to behave but it's taking a little longer. Intake: 02-16-2021/Owner Surrender Fenced yard required. My name is Raffie and I am one handsome rare colored Chihuahua! I kid you not, how many other Chi's have you seen with my extraordinary coloring? Pretty rare. And ears, I'm all ears! I came into rescue because I kept getting the family's Chi girl pregnant. Yup, two times. Since I was never neutered, it was a 'given' that this would happen. It took me about 3 days to get acclimated to my foster home. Although I get along with all pups here, my favorite person is my foster dad. I shouldn't go to a forever home with larger dogs because they might misunderstand me. My foster Daddy has been by my side since I arrived and taught me to be nice to every pup. I do have separation anxiety, especially when Foster Daddy has to leave the house to run errands. I do talk a lot, just like a kitty would purr. I don't bite but I will show my teeth if you touch my tail and I will give you my second stage of grumble. I need to come to you first to get warmed up. That generally takes a few minutes so be patient! I have been vaccinated, microchipped and will be neutered on March 25th. My teeth are very clean and I need no extractions. I eat two meals a day, breakfast and dinner. And I am crate trained, and potty trained as long as you get me out every 4 hours to do my business. I have had no accidents in my foster home since I arrived. My foster family will give you periodic updates on any of my behavior issues if anything changes. I truly am a more of a people pup than a pup-pup. My adoption donation is $400.00 I will be available after April 3, 2021.
