***Can Only Be Adopted to Experienced Adopter***
Rocky here and like the guy in the movie, I am a real go-getter and little fighter. I am affectionate, yet I can be a guarder. If I'm on the couch or a doggy bed, I don't "love" to be touched. If you understand Chihuahuas that act like me, then you'll understand this behavior. I'm not bad, I just get scared and act up. I'm doing better but, whoever adopts me knows has to know about guys like me and can put up with and manage this behavior. I really am a love-bug most of the time. I am anxious for a place where I can be heaped with love and understanding. Please consider giving me a place in your heart and home?
Chihuahua Rescue Says: Rocky is 4-5 years old and weighs 12 lbs. Rocky and several of his doggy siblings have landed with Chihuahua Rescue as a result of his person needing to reduce the number of pets in their home. All the pets are pretty friendly. All needed socialization and learning about how to be good indoor pets, house manners, eating a good diet, etc. They all received overdue vet care and are were introduced to going outdoors as well. Rocky can only be adopted to a home that will take him to an animal behaviorist for ongoing training for his guarding issues. He does not walk well on a leash, he is not crate trained, and his housetraining is 75% successful. His mood swings from very sweet to aggressive, so willing to work with a professional trainer is a must. He is neutered and up-to-date on his shots. His adoption fee is $250.00 (Seniors for Seniors $200).
