Looking for a calm, loving, and experienced "Chihuahua whisperer" for Chewey, a super cute 12 lb neutered male Chihuahua mix. He is approximately 5 yrs old and super super sweet, however he has a stubborn side and sometimes reacts by growling and/or trying to bite... especially when he is resting and comfortable and you need him to move or trying to get him in a crate. 90% of the time he is an angel but 10% of the time he turns into a beast and is not for an inexperienced dog person or household. He needs someone that understands him and his boundaries.
Chewey is great with other dogs and enjoys playing with them and also loves playing with his favorite toys and hoarding tennis balls in his favorite bed. He is also great with a majority of people, he doesn't like some men, and has no problem with children although we will only allow him to go into a adult only home or one with dog experienced older children. He also does great with cats.

Chewey is UTD on vaccines, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, neutered and healthy but he does have allergies which requires him to see the vet regularly to get a shot to control them. He also has had recurring untreated ear infections before we rescued him so this led to growths in both ear canals that we had to have surgically removed. That helped a lot however he is, and always will be, prone to ear infections most likely due to his allergies so that is something that will always need to be monitored by you and your vet.

Chewey has had a horrible and painful past, due to raging ear infections, but he is super special and just like every other animal he deserves his perfect person and happily ever after. If you think you could be that perfect special person for him please fill out an adoption application for consideration found at under forms.
