Gender: Male
Breed: Chihuahua
Status: Adoptable
A SWEET SPECIAL NEEDS FELLOW:  15 years old / 13 lbs.
 
I lost my home when my family had to move in with others and I couldn’t come along.  So, I’m now looking for a new home in my very “Golden” years.
 
• OTHER DOGS/CATS/KIDS:   I came to Mostly Mutts with another dog and I coexists well with the dogs in my foster home.  We do try to play just a little but aren’t quite sure how, so it’s cute to watch.  I should be fed separately since I’m on a special food (see medical), let’s meet if you have a sweet dog already / Cats unknown / I have not met kids in my foster home, but my former owner said I would do better in a home without them as I’m much older and wouldn’t like to play with them or if they tried to pick me up. 
 
• PERSONALITY/ENERGY LEVEL:  My foster says I’m a real sweetheart who is gentle and is a great couch potato that just want to enjoy my retirement.  I sleep a lot – who wouldn’t at my age?  I’m quiet too, just barking when I see someone outside – I have a deep sounding bark for a little guy / I have a low energy level (2-4).
 
• SKILLS/CRATE/POTTY:   I walk well on my leash and take leisurely strolls / I don’t use a crate in my foster home but I stay in a galley kitchen with a baby gate at night time and when my foster mom is away – I do very well with that / My potty manners have greatly improved now that my medical needs have been met (see medical below).  I stand at the door when I need to go outside.  I go out several times throughout the day and my foster mom leaves me with a potty pad at night and when she leaves.  I don’t use them much.
 
• LIKES/DISLIKES:   I like to cuddle when I want to, and I love belly rubs – I’ll nudge you when u stop asking for more please!  Lounging around the home is a great pastime of mine / I used to not like being picked up or getting my insulin shots, but my foster mom associated yummy chicken with my shots, so now I take them like a champ!  I’d rather not be picked up, but I tolerate it now.
 
• MEDICAL:  I was diagnosed with Diabetes after arriving at MM’s, I’m on a good insulin regime now, taking a shot twice a day (12 hours apart) I eat diabetic dog food and must stay on it and the shots for life.  I’m current on vaccinations, micro-chipped, had my teeth cleaned (don’t have many left) and I’m neutered.  
 
If you have a heart for the special needs dogs, we could be a match made in heaven.   My adoption fee is $100.00, and I’m located in Kennesaw, Ga.
