Name: Whiskey Sex: Male Spayed/Neutered: Yes Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat) Weight: 9.7 lbs Height: 11.5 in Estimated Birthdate: 2/26/2014 Fence Needed: No, can squeeze through small spaces. Location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC Adoption Fee:$200 Date into Rescue: 02/26/2019 Reason for being in rescue: Whiskey was part of a group of dogs seized from a home. CPR partner with a local shelter to help these animals. Special Needs: Whiskey's tear staining around his eyes was noted by our veterinarian. This may be reflecting a blocked tear duct and should continue to be monitored. What kind of home would be best for me: Whiskey would love any home with humans looking for a sweet and calm companion. He would be fine living with another canine companion - or event a cat. His main concern is people. Whiskey is a classic velcro dog who wants his people (or person). What is my personality like: Whiskey reminds us a bit of Petey from the Little Rascals. Physically he meets the criteria (small black and white dog) with big ears, a big heart, and wants to be right where people are in the middle of things! Whiskey came from unfortunate circumstances, but they have not dimmed his light. This boy has the most bright, sweet personality you will meet. There is nothing he loves more than to lie in someone's lap. He is incredibly gentle and calm, and does great with other dogs and cats. So far, he does not know any basic commands but is highly treat motivated. We are working with his issue with marking in new places. When adopted Whiskey will be sent home with a belly band to help further his training. Whiskey does show interest in toys and especially tennis balls but he isn't too sure about them yet. His new home will teach him. This beautiful boy is so fabulous and still has so much more potential. His forever family is going to see a magical transformation in their first year! How do I act when I first meet new people: Friendly Tips and Tidbits: Whiskey would love to go to a home with another dog but it is not needed. House trained: Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained. A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.
