Meet MrVirgil

My name is MrVirgil (but you can call me Dude). I am a 3-5-year-old, 15-pound bundle of love and I think I have some terrier and some chihuahua in the DNA. My foster parents found me wandering around their neighborhood in Athens, Georgia. They tried really hard to find my former family-they notified animal control, checked for a microchip and posted lots of signs. So I'm now looking for a new home. My foster parents think I am part terrier and part Chihuahua and totally cute.

I tend to be afraid of new people, at first, and I bark (loudly!) to show them I'm scared and need some time to warm up. However, within about 5 minutes, I am wagging my tail and seeking attention (I love treats). Food is the way to my heart.

Other than when I am scared, I am very quiet and rarely bark or whine. I love the elementary-aged children in my foster family and I like to play with their 10-month old, high-energy puppy. Although, he likes to play more frequently than I do! When I am not playing with my foster brother or with toys, I am usually very chill and love my crate.

I would be most comfortable in a home with another medium energy doggie brother or sister about my size; big dogs frighten me. I have not been around cats very much, but I don't seem to care one way or another about the neighborhood cats that come near my yard. Older children are preferred due to my excitement when playing as I can become a little mouthy. I'm doing well with my house training, but I am not 100% there.

I do best with patience and love. I need help to get through my fear of meeting new humans and bigger dogs.

I will be available for adoption soon after I am neutered.
