About Shamus

Adoption Fee: $300
Chihuahua mix
Age: Young Puppy
Sex: Male

LOCAL ADOPTION ONLY. This handsome little guy is Shamus. He is a 5 month old Chihuahua mix pup. He is 9 pounds of pure puppy energy! Sweet as a button... he loves everybody.... and is READY TO PLAY! Shamus has had some bad luck as of late. He had been adopted earlier this year but his family is going through a divorce and decided to give him back. He is not letting this unfortunate event get him down! Shamus is happy and upbeat... and POSITIVE his perfect FOREVER family is out there waiting for him and only him! Shamus will be a wonderful family dog. He is very loving, smart and always game for an adventure! He is great with kids of all ages and loves other dogs similar in size! A couple of kids and a fur-sibling, along with a fenced yard, would be amazing for him to have in his new home. He is not a constant barker...but can and will throw his head back and howl like a wolf if he is really frustrated (with someone stealing his toys) or being ignored. It is the puppy version of a temper tantrum!!! It only lasts for a moment and it is impossible to keep a straight face! It is hilarious! We have a feeling that he did not get a lot of one on one attention or proper training in his last home environment, as he is not yet fully potty trained. This smart boy is working hard on this in his foster home and will catch on very quickly once he is in a stable and permanent home! If you are willing to give this very deserving boy a loving FOREVER HOME! His $300 adoption fee includes a wellness exam, all his puppy vaccinations, rabies, microchip with lifetime registration, and his neuter when old enough (as long as it is done at our vet).
