NAME:   Caramel BREED:  Chihuahua mix SEX:  Male COLOR:  Red/white AGE:  12 years as of March 2020 WEIGHT:  10 lbs FOSTERED BY:  Kathy LOCATED IN:   North Port NOTES FROM FOSTER FAMILY: Caramel was recently returned to us due to his family having to move out of state and in with another family member.  He is back at his previous foster home and doing well.    He maybe almost 13 years old but he's no dodderer. He'll give you a run for your money. He is very smart and he has a lot to say. He's usually a step ahead of you so you need to be two steps ahead of him. He'll steal your lunch when you're not looking but he has a special diet of his own. He's house trained, crate trained, loves car rides, protective of his home so needs crate when new people come in or when doors are opened. Loves belly rubs, cozy beds and being with his people.   Due to COVID-19 we are a little more limited on volunteers and the availability (and safety) of home visits. Local applications are given first priority and some out of town areas will not be able to be processed. At this time, we will only be able to process applications that have an excellent current vet history. If you haven’t had a pet or verifiable vet history we will not be able to process your application.

FindpetTM is a Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry for the AAHA Universal Pet Microchip Lookup Tool. AAHA provides an internet-based application that enables veterinarians, humane organizations, pet owners or other persons to search various Pet Recovery Service registries and identify those registries on which a particular microchip is registered. AAHA is not affiliated or involved with any specific microchip registry and has no relationship, financial or otherwise, with this Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry ("Registry"). This Registry has given AAHA permission to search the Registry's database in order to assist pet owners in being reunited with their pets. AAHA does not maintain a database of microchips of its own. It only links to registries such as this one. The AAHA Universal Microchip Lookup Tool only searches the databases of companies that elect to participate in the program.
