Lucky is a senior needing an understanding home.  Lucky is about 11 years old.  He is timid but at first meeting he might start out  like a tough guy, The tough guy is just his fear rising up and he wants to look and act like a big tough guy  to protect himself.  But what he really  wants is to have someone hold him and love him to pieces.  And even when he wants to act like a German Shepherd, he weighs in at 5 lbs and only has 2 teeth in his mouth!  He needs someone who speaks chihuahua and they will understand him and his ways!

Lucky's Mom went into a nursing home and the family couldn't take him.  He was going to a high kill shelter when we intervened.  Lucky biggest flaw is that he like so many male chihuahuas is his tendency to mark.  He does enjoy going out in the yard if it isn't too cold outside.  However he isn't interested in spending a lot of time outside as some dogs do.  Lucky will us a pee pad although some times he misses the pad.  He also may choose vertical surfaces because he will mark.  So to combat this,  he should have frequent potty breaks and wear belly bands at home.

Lucky is a bit on the thin side so his family needs to be sure he eats high quality nutritious food.  Lucky will do well in a home with a nice tiny chihuahua to sleep and hang out with.  Lucky is neutered, had a recent dental, up to date with his vaccinations,  He is heartworm negative and microchipped.  His adoption donation is $400.00

Lucky is on the hunt for his very own completely committed family,  Dogs can live to be 25 years old so he wants to be sure his family is all in for better or for worse!
