Description: 
Estimated Birthday January 15, 2008 A truck driver spotted this little seven pound fellow hitchhiking on a road south of Taos. The driver went door to door in the area he found him, but no one knew who his owners were. The local shelter didn't have a report of a matching lost dog so we finally had him neutered and microchipped (so he can be identified if he gets lost again) and now have him available for adoption. Sage is a clown prince among Chihuahuas. With a twinkling eye and a joyous prance, he makes people forget their worries. Equally comfortable hiking or lying around, Sage enjoys the company of children, other dogs, cats, and ferrets. He shies away from strangers at first, and then comes up for love and attention, never showing any signs of aggression. He loves kisses and snuggles, rawhides and soft toys. His home is his castle and he will alert his people to anyone coming near. He is very intelligent - house, leash, and crate trained, and not afraid of heights at all. Guess he is ready to settle down!
