Chihuahua - Senior - Male
Adoptable Small Spayed/NeuteredUp-to-date with routine shotsSpecial Needs

Art is a male 6-7 yr old chihuahua, a tiny apple-headed 6 lb chubby boy with the cutest personality.    Art is sweet and likes being held but as most chihuahuas he is pretty independent too and spends much of the day curled up in his bed.  When Art came to us, he had an umbilical hernia, a small mass on his face and really bad teeth.   Since then, he has had a surgery to repair the hernia, had the mass removed and biopsied (its not cancer) and had a dental cleaning with some extractions.  He is a trooper though and will make someone a great little tiny friend.   Art is very bossy with other dogs, so he may be best being an only dog or in a home where the other dog is willing to leave him alone, he really dislikes dogs in his face.   He seems to have more respect for cats and avoids them.   Art does have some on/off neck pain due to improperly structured spine, he has probably had it since birth as xrays show some degenerative changes,   We do have him on some meds for that, but he wont be winning any races, he is a very slow moving little boy who prefers being carried to walks.
