Chihuahua - Pepe - Small - Adult - Male - Dog
Pepe is an adorable five-year-old, six-pound Chihuahua who was surrendered to animal control. His extreme nervousness landed him on the euthanasia list, so we took him into foster care to help him relax and prove that he's a loving dog who deserves a great home! He loves to play with other dogs in his foster home and barks at and chases cats, though he means them no harm. Pepe loves burying himself under the blankets in his crate and is very well trained to pee pads. Pepe enjoys rawhides, squeeky toys and bouncy balls and loves to collect them in his crate. He's a little hoarder! He loves his crate and will go right in when told or led in with a treat. Pepe is a joy to have around - he's very happy and friendly, always following you around and wagging his tail. Pepe can be a lap dog at times though he doesn't usually stay there very long. He enjoys being around his people, hanging out nearby or in his crate. Pepe will do best in a home that will be patient with him and let him come around at his own pace. He is not a dog that will instantly be your best friend. He needs someone who will allow him to build up his trust at his pace. He now adores his foster mom and dad (follows them around, sits on their laps, asks to be picked up). He has bonded strongly with his foster dad at first and preferred him over his foster mom in the beginning, however now they are equally loved. We suspect his previous owner was a male. Pepe would be best in a home with very few visitors. While he is great with his family, he does get over stimulated with strangers who visit the home. When he gets overly aroused (like seeing dogs on TV or outside) he likes to grab a blanket, toy or pillow and shake it. With visitors, he grabs onto their pant leg and shakes it. He will also do best with people that respect his need for distance and will not force him to interact with them. He's currently managed quite easily in his foster home by him going in his crate when visitors are over. Pepe's ideal home is someone with no children and experienced with Chihuahuas. They would be looking for a companion for their current Chihuahua or small dog. If you are interested in finding out more about Pepe, please fill out an application on our website. Pepe is being fostered in Worcester.
