Meet Biggie Smalls

Hello! My name is Biggie Smalls but my friends call me Biggs. I am about 5 years old and quite a good looking slim and trim fellow weighing around 5 lbs. My favorite hobbies are eating, sleeping, sitting on my human's lap, pretending to be a burrito in a blanket, going for walks, and playing with the other chihuahuas in my foster home. I used to have an elderly man who loved me, but he got sick and could no longer care for me. I've learned a lot of new skills in my foster home, like how to sleep at night in the crate (my foster mom says I'm a good sleeper), how to ride in the car in my crate (I'm very quiet), how to wear a harness to go on walks, and how to potty outside (my foster mom says I'm very reliable as long as I have a schedule). I have this endearing habit of sitting up and pawing the air when I see fabulous snacks, and when I'm excited I can spin in circles and make you laugh.
I am still learning and can get scared and nip sometimes - like when I'm startled out of sleep or a stranger grabs at me or when someone touches my feet. My foster mom says we are working on that. I am super food motivated and am working on new behaviors for yummy rewards. I'm a small guy so I need my person to be my advocate to keep me safe and let me continue to gain confidence.
If you have another small dog, I might decide to play after I have time to adjust. I hear there is something called a cat - what is that, I have no idea!
Oh, and can I please wear a sweater when it's cold? I love my sweaters and would consider it a true favor to have several to choose from to keep the Wisconsin chill in check. In return, I promise to sit on your lap, go for walks with you, give you kisses, take treats gently, and be a good companion. Love, Bigs.
