Meet FRITTER! Like we say with most of our Chihuahuas, he’s a cute little dude with TONS of personality packed into that little body. FRITTER is very affectionate with his people and comfortable in his own home but will need to work on introductions and building that confidence outside of the home. He’s very happy to meet new humans in his own home or even if you visit friends, but is more hesitant to meet strangers on the street. He’s been super friendly with children who have come to visit him as well and happily interacted with them. He’s not bothered by noises in the home (like foot traffic above) so could likely live in a condo. He does bark at things when he can see them, especially if he finds them interesting like squirrels and birds, so if you have a window he can stare out of he will appoint himself as neighbourhood watch. Get off my lawn, rabbit! FRITTER is medium energy and enjoys a couple short walks per day along with some playtime in the home to deal with his short bursts of energy. He can be a little clingy with his people so encouraging him to enjoy more alone time is important. He is working on basic commands and would do best in a home that will provide some structure to keep that big personality in check – this includes regular in home training, crating and boundaries like not having a free for all on your furniture. His dislikes when outdoors include other dogs, loud noises and bikes. Especially bikes. He needs to work on his socialization with other dogs and would benefit from training classes. He currently barks at them from a distance and hasn’t interacted with many up close. He also hasn’t been tested with cats. If you’d like to meet FRITTER fill out an application to adopt now!
