Meet Tuffy

"We are all a little broken. But the last time I checked, broken crayons still color." My name is Tuffy and I may only be an 8lb., Chihuahua mix but I am a very colorful boy. I have a sugary sweet side, but I have a lot of fear so it may take a bit to see that. I am an 8 year old fella who is still figuring out how wonderful dog life can be. I am currently working on house training and crate training. I am good with other dogs, but not very playful with them. I adore walks, car rides, and chasing my toys around. I have some quirks like anyone. I am a jumpy guy and love to show off my skills though not on command. I also bite when I am scared. It is not terrible since I barely have any teeth, but I should not live or be around kiddos. It is a way I have learned over the last 7 years to communicate that I do not feel safe or comfortable. This may change over time. I need a home with a fenced yard, but I could potentially also be happy in an apartment or the cab of your big rig. I definitely need a calm household, where I can feel safe and bond with my adult humans. I do enjoy snuggling on my terms. I need a best friend to promise to keep me safe and love me for me. It is a tough job, but I know there is a special person for it. Are you the person for the job?
