Bandit is a very smart and happy charming little guy.  Everyone who meets him loves him immediately.  He lost his home through no fault of his own when his mom went into a nursing home. He is very gentle and gets along with everyone.  He likes to share his bed with another chi buddies.  He has only been around dogs his size so we don't know about larger pups.  He doesn't understand cats.  He barks at them and chases them but won't harm them.  The cats aren't amused although Bandit it.

He came with the name Bandit and we retained it,  He will jump on furniture including your dining room, chair to steal yummy food left behind and we suspect that might be where he got his name!   

He is close to being the perfect dog with one exception is his tendency to mark.  He will do best in a home that can give him frequent potty breaks.  Ideally every 4-6 hours.  We suggest that he is kept in a belly band for your sake and his  He may be less stimulated in a home if he is the only dog or another companion, but we prefer to err on the side of worse case and assume he needs a constant belly band.

Bandit is fully vetted,  He is neutered, vaccinated, had a recent dental and is microchipped.  

He is on the hunt for his own completely committed family,  Little dogs can live a long life so he wants to be sure all applicants will forever commit to him and stick with him for better or for worse!
