Pet Spotlight: Don’t Let the ‘Scowl’ Fool You

by Helen Hartel

To adopt Roy, request A4813058.

Roy is a four-year-old male Chihuahua mix that was adopted but was returned to the shelter when his owner became ill and was no longer able to care for him. He was well loved by this gentleman and seems to be undaunted by being back at the shelter.

Roy is a funny little guy with an engaging personality, but his markings make him look like he has a perpetual scowl on his face. That look can be misleading, because once you get to know him, it only adds to his charm. His “angry” look has nothing to do with his zest for life.

Here are some things you should know about Roy:

  • He is housebroken.
  • He got along well with the other dog in his former home, and they loved to play and nap together.
  • He is good with small dogs after a proper, slow introduction.
  • He rides well in the car.
  • He does well on leash and enjoys going for walks
  • He is a healthy boy that loves to eat and be rewarded with occasional treats.
  • He loves being with people

Are you looking for a wonderful confident boy who is affectionate and loving? Then Roy is your guy.  Ask to meet and spend time with him. You will be charmed by his personality and find his unusual and cute looks endearing.
