Please contact Brittany (allbreedanimalrescue@gmail.com) for more information about this pet. Hola! My name is Pedro and I am an 18 month old, 10 pound, male pure bred chihuahua. I was an owner surrender, along with my sister Pepita, to a rural shelter in Virginia. While we were well taken care of medically, our pychological needs were not met when we were younger. We were not properly socialized with people. My foster mom says that I must have never been handled because I am so uncomfortable being picked up. It is all a bit scary to me. I love other dogs but it takes me a while to find my place in a human pack. I do want to be close to people but really only to sit close to you to be petted. I sleep in the bed with my foster parents and have gotten to be quite cuddly. I love to sleep between my foster parents but really close to my foster mom. I need someone who will understand that it will take time for me to trust and to have the patience to work to make me a productive member of a family. I would be a good fit for an older couple without children or a single person that has experience with chihuahuas. Do you think you can find it in your heart to help me?
