This is Percy, an active young Chihuahua mix who loves to play and play! Although he is shy with people, Percy gets along great with other dogs of all sizes and loves to explore and hang out with his buddies. But if no one is available to play with him, Percy is happy to spend some time with his toys. Because of his history, another canine in the home will be required for Percy to help him learn how to take on the world. Loud noises and sudden movements still scare this sweet boy, and he will need a patient, understanding family, that will give him the time to gain confidence. No children for this boy, he prefers adults. Percy has mastered his leash walking and would love to go for daily walks, but he will still need a home with a securely fenced yard to keep him safe and help him learn where to go potty. Percy is doing great with potty training. He absolutely loves treats, especially chicken, cheese, and tuna, and has really started to relax in his foster home. He has begun seeking out attention from his foster parents and is getting much more comfortable with his foster dad. If you are looking for a cute guy with tons of potential, please ask to meet our Percy.

Prior to being rescued, many of our dogs have experienced minimal socialization. As a result, there is often an adjustment period when learning about life as a family pet. We typically do not adopt to homes with children under 6 years old; homes with older children will be considered on an individual basis. Common skills such as housetraining and leash walking will often take a little extra time. Patience, understanding and a gentle hand are a must. The great news is, most of these dogs come around rather quickly and being a part of their rehabilitation is an extremely rewarding experience.
