Milo the Meatball

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

Meatball is a male 8 yr old Chihuahua, a tri colored little chubby boy.   He is very sweet and quiet and loyal.   Meatball loves treats and following his people.  He likes other dogs and ignores cats and is overall very easy, he doesn’t even lift his leg.  He started at 12.5 lbs, now he is 9 lbs but he really needs to get down to about 8 lbs.  We’ll be working on this till adoption.  Meatball does have a heart murmur, he saw a cardiologist and does not need medications at this time.  He also has luxating patellas, very common in Chihuahuas, he walks fine but should be discouraged from tons of jumping.  Finally, he also has bronchitis (a non-contagious cough).   He is on medication for the cough and we hope to have that resolved soon.    All 3 of his issues will get better as he looses weight as all 3 conditions are made worst by obesity.  He will need an owner willing to keep him on the thinner  side.
