This is Murphy. He's a wonderful full-bred Chihuahua. His pattern is called 'blue Merle'. He was born on March 13, 2013. He weighs 7lbs. He is neutered. He has had no health problems and has been on heart-worm and flea preventive since he was a pup. As long as he's brushed and bathed regularly he barely sheds. I bought him from a breeder in Tampa when he was 12 weeks old. I love him immensely. He's a 'Velcro' dog, he only wants to be in my lap. He is house trained, but may 'spite poop' if you go out of town. He loves to play fetch. He loves to snuggle. He is very skittish. He always has been. He barks at new people and visitors but warms up most of the time. He's a great 'alarm'. You'll know when someone is coming to the door. He doesn't do well around other dogs. We lived in a house with two other chihuahuas for a few months, but Murphy is much happier as an only dog. He gets very jealous! My husband is allergic to dogs but has been (somewhat) coping with his allergies for my sake. Unfortunately, our baby daughter is also allergic to dogs. This is truly breaking my heart but Murphy needs a new home. He would be best suited in a home with someone who works from home or is retired. Preferably no children- he can be snappy. He's bit the mailman several times (yep- he's 'that' chihuahua). If you have any questions or want to meet him, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
