Meet Newman

Meet Newman! He is an adorable 12 pound 3-4 year old Chihuahua mix who was found in Mexico extremely malnourished. He's been in a foster home for the last 3 months and he is thriving and ready for his forever home! When we got him he had no hair, and as you can see, it's slowly growing in, he's put on some weight and is feeling great. One of his back legs is a few inches shorter than the others (we think he was born that way) so we got a brace made for him so they can all be the same length. Before the brace, he got around 100% fine- able to walk, run, hike just like any other dog. Bit we figured if this would help him we should get it! He's still getting used to it, but it definitely helps him. He is a little shy at first but ones he comes out of his shell, he is the sweetest most charming dog. He LOVES to cuddle and be pet but also likes to play with other dogs. If you're looking for your next lap dog, Newman is your guy!
