Chipster was found as a stray and never reclaimed. He is a very sweet little boy, but is still learning to trust and will need an understanding owner/family that will continue to help him feel loved and safe (and familiar with typical chihuahua personalities).
Chipster is a very funny, friendly and sweet little guy that loves belly rubs and couch surfing. He has the cutest bow-legged front legs and he is surprisingly agile for his size and age - he can jump onto the bed and couch and tackles stairs no problem!
Chipster has been doing well on potting on a schedule and isn't overly bothered by the cold and snow. He does not care for being kenneled/penned and will whine/cry but he does not appear to be a big barker and is not yippy. He is a good little sleeper and cuddles up on his foster mom's bed and sleeps well during the night.
Chipster is fear reactive when his neck/collar is touched or he is leashed but his foster family is working with him to show him its okay, and he is learning to gain trust that he won't be hurt. He is a chihuahua so he does display some of the "alpha" characteristics of the breed - he does GREAT with other dogs his same size which respect his boundaries.
Due to his nervousness and trust issues he needs a quieter home with a fenced yard (or fenced potty area) and no small children. He really is an amazing little guy and so deserving of a loving home!
