Hi, I’m Weasel and I’m a 7 yr old Long Haired Chihuahua. I’m not too heavy at 17 lbs. I came to Hands of Hope because my mom went into a nursing home. I’m used to a quieter home but I would be fine with another dog or cat. I’m timid and I get scared and sometimes I may growl a little but once I get used to you, which doesn’t take me too long, I really like to be your lap buddy. I really think I make a good companion because I love all the attention I can get. I really get scared and I might bark at strangers. I’m also scared around kids so would rather not live with small people or have them around too much. Sometimes they don’t understand when I tell them I am scared. All I need is someone to give me a chance and a few days and we will be joined at the hip. I like to go for walks on a leash and harness, and I know how to go potty outside! I really need to have a fenced yard because if I got scared I might run off. I am current on all vaccinations, neutered, heart worm negative, microchipped and on monthly preventatives.
