Mickey is a 7 to 8 year old male chihuahua. He weighs around 9 pounds..... Mickey does well with dogs his own size but he does not care for larger dogs ..
His favorite past time is watching tv with his person and he would be a great only dog or companion for someone that stayed home all day... He is a real loving little boy but does have separation anxiety and will squeal if you leave him in the other room.... He quits if you tell him no and reassure him, he is very eager to please....
He does sleep quietly in his crate at night but he does not like the door closed on it,,, He does not jump up onto or down off of things and needs to be lifted... We do not know if he was dropped or fell at one time and if that is his fear but actually, it is good he pretty much stays put..
Mick is housetrained but tries to mark when he goes anywhere new and we use a belly band on him..once he is familiar , it is no longer needed,,,
If you are looking for a loving companion and you are willing to work with Mickey and help him with his separation issues, you will have a new very best friend,,, You can call me, Mickey's Foster Mom, Barb, at 941 238 8389 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org MEDICAL INFO:
