A PRECIOUS LITTLE GUY:  9 years old / 4.5 lbs. and needs to gain some weight  Mostly Mutts adoption facility is open Mon-Sat. 11-4pm.  Some of us are in foster homes so please call 770-272-6888 1st to find out if I’m available to meet during the week. I was adopted from MM’s last year, but my family is splitting up and can’t take me with them, so I find myself looking for a new family to love.  I’m as cute as they come and am settling into a foster home now.  I’m looking for a home where there’s a stay or work from home family member as I just love the company and don’t think I’d be happy if you were gone all day.  I’m also a good traveler, so you can take me places with you.  My former family reports that I’m very snuggly and love being right next to you, usually cuddled up in a little warm blanket. My foster mom also remembers me as a snuggle bug during my previous time with MM’s, but she hasn’t seen this lately. Maybe I need more time to adjust and settle in, and I warm up to men faster so perhaps I need more time to bond with her.  I’ve just been diagnosed with some arthritis in my back so I’m on a medication to help me with that.  I’ve also got a grade 3 heart murmur, so I take a daily pill for that which I like in peanut butter. I’ll need to be on both medications for the rest of my life. My foster mom is feeding me extra every day for a little while as I’m quite thin right now, so the extra food is appreciated. I sleep a good bit, and I don’t need much exercise as anything more than a short potty walk tends to make my back hurt.  I did well with 3 other Chihuahua’s that I met and the calm dogs in my foster home, though I sometimes get a little cranky towards them if they don’t give me my space. However, I really didn’t like a larger dog I met, and I went after her a couple of times.  Not too smart, I know, but I had to tell her I did not want to play!  I’m super sweet and lovey, and I’ll give you some kisses too.  Nice kitties should be fine with me as I’ve napped in a doggie bed with 2 at the MM shelter.  If you have other calm and gentle pets, let’s meet!  I generally alert you to anyone approaching the house as a good dog should.  I haven’t spent time with kids lately, but I had previously met a very gentle 8-year-old boy, and we had a nice time together, he let me ride in his lap in the car too. Since I’m so tiny though, I should only live with older gentle kids that won’t stumble or step on me and know how to properly handle a 4 lb. dog with back pain. You see, I don’t like playing or being picked up due to my back pain.  My potty manners are getting a refresher in my foster home and I used to be great at using pee pads if you lay them down for me, so that may be a good option again.  Sometimes I confuse smaller throw rugs for pee pads, though, oops!  My former family reported that I could dig out from their fence, so please don’t leave me unattended in the yard.  Since I’m so tiny, the birds of prey could also carry me away if left alone outside.  Energy level:  3-4.  I'm current on vaccinations, micro-chipped, neutered and my adoption fee is $299.00 which also includes an engraved name tag, Martingale collar and leash.
