Hi there folks, Elroy here! I am a 5 lb chihuahua. I was rescued from a high volume county shelter by my foster mama. I was unaltered when she rescued me but I have since been neutered and have had some dental work:) I am estimated to be 6-7 years old. I am a very adaptable little guy. I can live with kitties and other dogs, although I sometimes get scared when other dogs run at me and want to play. Strangers (humans) do not scare me or cause me to act out. I am great on a leash and I LOVE to go for walks and play in the yard. Ok, maybe not play, but I love to smell everything. I do play with small toys, primarily chewing on them:) I also sometimes get super frisky and race around the house and I like to chase my tail:) I currently live in a crate when my foster mom goes to work. This is too many hours for me to hold my potty, and I do not like a mess in my crate, so I will pee outside of the crate by lifting my leg. When my foster mom gets home I get to run around and I get so excited that I squeal. I have marked in the house, so I wear a belly band to prevent this. My ideal forever home is with a chihuahua lover who understands me. I would love to be in a home with someone who is with me all of the time and even takes me in my carry-all purse bag! If taken out regularly, I typically potty outside only! I love to sleep next to my people on the couch or in the bed. I am a very special little guy with a huge personality (according to my foster mom.) I just need someone who understands my needs and is willing to work with me. ! If interested, please email my foster mom and we can meet! Love, E
