Jimmy is a high energy chihuahua who came all the way from Texas to find his forever home! He is looking for an active, dog savvy family that’s willing to do some training, maybe with some older teens that would like to play with him. Jimmy loves toys of any kind and would play fetch or tug of war all day if he could!
When he gets too excited he can mouth hands and needs to be redirected and calmed down before he can resume play, so he needs no young kids in his home. Jimmy has 2 dog foster brothers that he plays well with but can be a bit bossy and has been reactive meeting new dogs since. He also likes to chase cats (and squirrels!) so he’ll likely need a home without any other pets.
Jimmy is housetrained but does tend to mark on new smells or in new environments. He also walks well on leash and can be left alone for up to 8 hours without issue. A home where some barking and noise is okay would be best as Jimmy is sometimes vocal when he plays, and will need to be kept on leash outside unless inside an area with a fence over 4 feet.
He might be small but he has springs in his legs and he loves to explore! Jimmy loves to spend time with his people and will follow them from room to room and spend his evenings relaxing with them on the couch. If you’re looking for an affectionate, active small dog with lots of personality, Jimmy’s your guy!
