Hi there, my name is Bender! I am a 2 year-old Chihuahua mix looking for my forever home. Are you looking for a new friend to go on walks with & to cuddle with on the couch? Well, I’m your guy!
My ideal home would be a quiet one that doesn’t have a lot of guests over because it takes me a little while to trust new people. A home with another small/medium dog would really help me adjust to a new home. A house without kids would be best because I find loud noises & fast movements to be a bit scary. Teenagers might be okay if they are patient & respectful of me. I can be a bit of a shy guy, but once I feel safe with you I will want to cuddle with you all the time. I like to snuggle up as close as I can get!
Sometimes I bark at new people when they are making me nervous but I don’t mean any harm by it, it’s just how I tell people I need some space. My foster mom says I’m improving every single day when we encounter strangers out in the world. When I feel comfortable I’m an outgoing little guy! I love to go for hikes & walks. I get along well with other dogs! I’m told that I am a good boy, I just have some learning to do so that I feel more confident. I’m looking for someone who will love me & be patient with me as I learn that the world isn’t so scary.
Are you my perfect match?! I have some much love to give you! Please fill out an application and a volunteer will contact you. (KM)
