Name: Drambuie
Age/Gender: 2 years, Male
Breed: Chihuahua mix
Temperment: Playful, sweet, loving, timid
Weight: 11 lbs
House Training: He's working on it - he uses a doggie door at his foster's house but currently needs to be encouraged to go outside; he also doesn't like the rain. A consistent schedule with lots of opportunities to go out will be important for him

Children: Dog-respectful children, 8 and older
Adoption Donation: $375
Health: Drambuie is healthy! He is neutered, microchipped, flea treated, dewormed, and is current on vaccines. Your adoption donation goes toward the cost of this vet care as well as transportation and general care costs. In addition, all pets adopted from Motley Zoo come with 30 days of free pet insurance provided by Shelter Care.

History: Drambuie was found as a stray. Motley Zoo Animal Rescue was asked to find him a great forever family and that is exactly what we plan to do!

Notes from Drambuie's Foster Home: Drambuie is a sweet, playful little guy. He has a lot of energy and loves toys - he's a happy little guy! He is great in the car, and loves to play with his foster's dogs. Drambuie also loves a good cuddle - he's content to snuggle on your lap while you watch TV or work on the computer. His current foster allows him to sleep with her and he loves it - he gives a couple kisses goodnight and then snuggles right in. He is a bit attention starved - his tail is always wagging and he loves to give kisses. He doesn't have any food aggression, but so far potty training is a bit slow going, mainly because this little guy doesn't like the rain. A rain coat or sweater may be helpful, but he'll definitely need continued potty training. He's also a bit unsure about a leash and doesn't yet understand. He's a people pleaser, though, so he'll catch on!

Drambuie would do great in a house with another canine friend to keep him company. He is great about sharing his toys. He does tend to keep his toys in his crate - along with shoes! He does NOT chew shoes, but he has been known to steal one away and store it in his crate. :) He sometimes has been known to shred a dropped paper towel, but he does not do this with potty pads. Drambuie's foster does not crate him while he's out and as long as he has some toys to keep him busy, he is not destructive. Drambuie is so even tempered, he doesn't even mind having his nails trimmed! Drambuie is a timid guy in new situations, so continued socialization will be really important for him so that he develops more confidence! This sweet boy needs some training work, but more than anything he just wants to be loved and will make a perfect family pet! 

All dogs adopted from Motley Zoo come with a leash and either a Martingale collar or a harness, depending on each dog's particular needs.

Welcome to Motley Zoo Animal Rescue. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit animal rescue organization that is run entirely by volunteers. Motley Zoo does not have a brick and mortar shelter location. Instead, all our rescue animals are cared for in private foster homes where the animals receive one-on-one care and attention in a home environment until permanent placement is found. Please email and request an adoption application and we will work toward approving you as an adopter with our rescue so that we can set a time for you to meet! For more information, please visit

Thank you for considering adopting a dog in need!
