Hi, my name is Stimpy (because my similarities to the 90’s cartoon character are simply uncanny). I’m approximately 8 or 9 years old, about 5lbs, and I came to VPRP as a stray from the shelter.
I’m not the brightest crayon in the box, but I’m the sweetest boy you’ll ever meet. What I lack in brain cells, I make up for in personality and cuddles!
The nice people at Vetco fixed my oronasal fistulas for me so I wouldn’t offend my new owners with my booger blowing skills, and they took out my last remaining tooth, so I have to eat soft foods please! ?
The positive side of having no teeth…my little tongue hangs out for the cutest photo ops. I also have a bit of an abnormal walk (my vet says I’m not in any pain); but when I get excited, I do tend to trip or scrape the ground and need help over doorways and steps.
I’ll be honest…I am not the best at potty training, so my foster mom keeps a belly band on me, but it’s a work in progress. ??
I absolutely love everyone I meet; kitties, dogs, all people, I even met a tortoise! My best friend is my foster brother who’s a teacup chihuahua like me, we like to kiss and clean each others faces.
I’m pretty low key and my favorite place to sleep is on top of a cozy pillow. I sleep on a dog bed on the bed or on top of my foster moms pillow through the night. I’m also crate trained for when she has to go to work.
I’m so well behaved in public and love going anywhere with my humans, whether it be in the car, my dog sling, or in their arms.
In typical chihuahua fashion, I have an open Fontanelle in my skull (my vet says mine is a bit bigger than usual), so even though I’m totally huggable and love being carried, you must make sure not to drop me, or let me roll off any high objects. Due to this trait, I would be best suited for a household without any super young children.
If I sound like your cup of tea, you should apply to meet me! ? ? ??????
