At the shelter, it seems like visitors and volunteers fall into two categories: those that favor big dogs and those that are fans of the little ones. Those that like the bigger ones say that the littles are too yappy while the people that favor the small dogs complain that the bigs pull too hard on the leash, and so it goes. Rarely is there a dog that becomes a favorite of both groups, but Stitch seems to have crossed that barrier.
Stitch is an 11-year-old male Chihuahua. For all of his life he had his own home with the same family until one day he was brought to the shelter. It was said that the landlord wouldn’t let him stay any longer where his family was renting. So now he is waiting to be with people who will play with him and most of all shower him with love. He just has to find his forever family who will bring him into their hearts and inside their warm home and make him a part of their integrated household. Could that be with you?
Here are some things you should know about him:
- He has gotten along with all other dogs he has been housed with.
- He has gotten along with all other dogs he has played with, and there’s been a lot!
- He has been to lots of outside events and has been great at them all.
- He appears to love everyone he meets.
- He is a sweetheart.
- He loves attention.
- He should probably go to a home with older kids just because of his age.
Worried about adopting an older dog? Don’t! Just like a puppy, he has his whole life ahead of him and it would be great to spend it with the right family!
Since he has been at the shelter, he has been taken to a private vet for a senior wellness check-up. He had a few benign bumps removed, and he is good to go.
If you are looking for a sweet little fellow who fits perfectly into an apartment, condo or house, ask to meet him right away. Get your happily-ever-after started right now with this wonderful tail-wagging pup
