Meet Panda

Introducing Panda!

Panda is a 9 pound, 2 year old male chihuahua mix finally ready for his forever home! Panda joined CRT when he was a 1 year old puppy after being rescued from a hoarding case in Minnesota. As a puppy, he had never experienced human touch. His foster mother has worked with him so much over the past year and is proud to say Panda now allows his humans to touch him. With new people, he will have some fear initially but he is playful and adores attention once he gets past that fear! He is a very sweet boy with a gentle disposition.

Panda gets along very well with other small dogs. He adores his current foster siblings and is always either playing or cuddling with someone! Panda would love to go to a home with another canine companion to show him the ways of the house. Panda is very submissive and looks to his human for security. Once Panda trusts you, he ADORES you and you can see it in his eyes. It just takes time to build that trust, so he needs to go to a home who can be patient with him and understands that it may take months to build trust and to continue to help Panda build up his doggy skills. It would be best for Panda to go to a home without children.

Panda is pee pad trained. At this time, he still marks occasionally but this behavior has decreased drastically since being with his foster mother. His foster mother has been working on leash training with Panda, but the leash training has been indoors only at this point as his foster mother doesn’t feel he’s yet ready to go out on the sidewalks yet. He very quickly picked up that a small tug on the leash means to stop, and he does allow his foster mother to pick him up without issue when he is on a leash. Panda knows his name and will sit when his foster mom says his name!

One important thing to note about Panda is that he is a flight risk. He will need to go to a home with a fenced in yard, with either a jump fence or a 6’ fence line. He is a jumper and can easily jump 3’ gates in the house without issue. Panda has never attempted to jump over the fence at his foster mother’s home, but if he’s in a new space and fearful he might try. Due to his flight risk designation, he will need either a smart tag or apple air tag at adoption just in case he gets out. The rescue can provide one for a small donation, or his family can come prepared with their preference!

Panda is neutered, UTD on shots, heartworm negative, and on HW preventative.

His adoption donation is $300.00.
