Hi! My name is Gizmo - I am a 2 year old and 9lb chihuahua terrier mix boy looking for my best fit family! Are you them???
I am a fun, curious, and high energy little dog! I love to see what everyone is doing, what's behind that door, where all the toys are, and how I can get them all to my little wee bed. I love to chew, which has sometimes resulted in me eating what I'm not supposed to. (CaliCan says this just means you have to watch me closely while I chew - awww). Once my playtime is done, then it's time for CUDDLES. OMG those are the best! Especiallallilly if you have a nose I can kiss / nip. I do take a bit to warm up, so just wait until I have done so before you try to pick me up for cuddles. But once that happens, man alive are the cuddles the best.
I have not met kids or cats. Given I have nippy tendencies, kids are probably not the best. But given my curious nature, I'd say cats are probably okay as I'm most likely to just sniff and lick them, maybe try to play with them. Dunno! We'll see! I'm in a foster home with a medium energy little dog and a low energy big dog, and I do well with both. I prefer the one that will play with me, and would love a furever home with another playful pup! I sometimes need manner taught, and the best way to learn is from other dogs, so that would be also beneficial.
I do NOT like the crate. Nope nope. I will tolerate being crated during the day, where I will cry once I'm in there, and then when I hear you come home. But if I know you're home, I'd rather be with you. Your bed is the most coziest and I'd love to make sure you're well comforted while sleeping. OHHH also manicures are the best! I love it! While my nails get snipped, I get treats. It's the greatest thing ever!! I also need some encouragement getting my eyes wiped, but if you give me treats, I'm good for that. Basically, teach me with treats, and you'll have a Good Boi in no time.
My adoption fees are $300. I've been seen by the vet, who says I'm a cutie pie and healthy. I am microchipped, current on shots, and ready for my furever family.
