Hi my name is Vinny and I’m a 4 year old , 8 pound Chihuahua. I came from Jackson county dog pound. I lost some hair due to fleas, but it’s growing back now. I’m flea free and in much better shape now!
I currently live with 2 bigger dogs and another Chihuahua like me who I get along with pretty well, but I am just a little guy so sometimes the larger dogs startle me. There’s also a cat that lives here as well who I love to hang with and shower with my kisses.
I’m working on house training and learning some commands. I love to fetch and get the zoomies when I play. I like toys, treats, and you telling me a I’m a good boy. Walking isn’t a big requirement for me. I love being carried or just sitting in your lap instead. I go to my crate at night when my foster mom says bed. I stay out of the crate during the day. I’m content to have my nyla bone and my dog bed and I’m all good.
My foster mom prefers prospective adopters know some information on the breed and care, but she will go over the care with you.
Vinny will be better with older children in the household. I’m not sure of small children because of his size. Vinny takes a little time to warm up until he gets to know you. But he is definitely a lap dog. Vinny is utd on shots, neutered and heartworm negative. He is on heartworm/flea prevention. To fill out an application or to contact Paws
