Meet IZI!

MEET IZI!

This tiny chocolate-colored boy is named Izi! Izi is an 11 year old Chihuahua who was surrendered to the shelter because his former family was moving and couldn't bring him along. Luckily, he found his way to City of Elderly Love and is now hoping to find the perfect retirement home! 

Izi is relatively quiet, calm and loving. He loves to spend his time with his foster family and will follow you room to room to see what you're up to. He'll occasionally get a spurt of energy and want to play but his favorite place to be is cuddled up on the couch next to you. Though he's a little guy, he's not the stereotypical yappy small dog though he'll bark at unexpected loud noises or knocks at the door like most dogs. He can be a bit nervous which is why he prefers to stay by your side. Izi loves to go for walks and because he's a little guy with a little bladder, he does need to go out several times a day. He's working on his crate training skills and will sometimes have an accident if left too long. Izi is currently living in foster care with other dogs and cats. He's comfortable sharing his space with them but would prefer a home with other low-key animals like himself. Though he hasn't met anyone he doesn't love, we think he'd be happiest in a home with older children due to his size and love of leisure.

Izi has received a veterinary workup since coming to the shelter and has been diagnosed with a Grade IV (of VI) heart murmur. He is currently on three medications to help with the heart condition (pimobendan, furosemide, enalapril). He has a cardio workup scheduled in February which will be at the cost of the rescue. Due to his heart murmur, he cannot receive a dental cleaning until he has been cleared by the cardiologist, which will also be at the cost of the rescue.

Izi is available for adoption through City of Elderly Love. He is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. He is also heartworm and lymes disease negative. Interested in adopting him?
