Pistol Pete the Dog needs a home
Petey may be small but he is "mighty"! He has a BIG personality and will wiggle his way into your heart. He loves to snuggle and give kisses! He's a real lap dog...but he also loves to race around and play with toys.
Petey lives with other dogs in his foster home but he is not very tolerant of them. He will probably do best as an only dog where he can be the center of attention. He has never been cat-tested but we can do so if needed.
Like many Chihuahuas and Chi mixes, he can be a little bit shy/nervous but is very friendly with people who go slowly and are gentle with him. He actually really likes people!
Also like many tiny dogs Petey is a bit "barky" so that should be a consideration for families living in apartments.
Because of Petey's tiny stature and lack of experience with children, we not place him in a home with children under the age of 10. Similarly, because of his size we will not place him in a home with a large breed dog unless the dog specifically has prior experience with tiny dogs.
