Meet Wally

Wally is a 9 pound little chihuahua with a lot of love to give. Wally is house trained and does well in his crate while his foster parents are away from home. Wally loves playing with the other 4 dogs in the house above all else. He absolutely loves other dogs and will play endlessly!

Zoomies around the yard and playing 'chase' is when Wally is at his happiest. He would be a perfect addition to another pack of smaller dogs. He fit right in with his current foster brothers and sisters no problem.

Wally will walk very nicely on a leash and usually trails behind you a bit to feel more safe out in this scary world. He will bark at others walking by in order to protect you as well.

Wally is also a very nervous, timid boy. His previous experiences with men were not the best and he is very scared of them. He spent the first few days hiding in a corner when he came to his foster home. Only coming out when on a slip leash at first. His current foster dad is working to help him get over this, but it will take a very long time to achieve. Wally will need a very patient and understanding owner who is willing to work with him on this. He is very attached to his foster mom, but still listens well to his foster dad and had even started to cuddle him after just 1 week!

There is so much good about Wally, but his nervous behavior does add a challenge. He does growl to alert when he's uncomfortable with a situation and will nip if pushed, but for the most part he is very good. He hides in his crate when he needs extra security too. He has improved so much already in his foster home and we know he will continue to do amazingly in the right forever home.

NOTE: Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable, so for most of the dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.

We expect that all adopted dogs will enroll in a formal dog training class with their new owners. Obedience and training classes are an excellent way to learn more about your newly adopted dog, gain handling and training experience, and improve your relationship with your pet.
