About Eddie

Adoption Fee: $25
Spitz / Pug
Age: Adult
Sex: Male

When we got Eddie from someone on KSL a few years ago, we were told he was a cross between a pug and a chihuahua. Since then, we researched and suspect he is part Indian Spitz. But his hair is shorter than a spitz, and his body is built like a pug. Still, he's got the little underbite of a chihuahua. So he could be a chug-spitz? He's 6 years old. He's a sweet boy--adorable, really. He's got a natural smile and he's friendly but not overbearing. He was an inside dog until about a year ago, when our 1-year old hassled him and he nipped her on the face, giving her a bleeding scratch on the nose. Because of that incident, we don't dare sell him through traditional means (liability too much of a risk). Some people suggested we put him down, but we couldn't do that. Instead, we made him an outside dog. That fixed that problem. He does great outside all year. So he can be an inside or outside dog. He actually gets along with the kids really well. Especially the older kids. But because of the bite incident, we have to list him as good with adults but not with kids. Since then, we've gotten farm animals (chickens, ducks and geese), and true to his breed (assuming we've classified him correctly), he's a little hunter, and goes after our birds. He has managed to kill 5 of our chickens. We've had him penned for the past few months, but he still managed to kill 2 birds, and injured another. The birds escaped their own pen and got into his (stupid birds). Still, another reason we can't sell him through traditional means. He's not good with other non-dog animals. Otherwise he really is a loving, sweet dog, and though it breaks our heart to have to find him a new home, we just don't have the time to do the intensive training he would need to stay with us, and our situation is not the best to keep him. If you are interested, I can tell you some of the things he enjoys. He loves tug of war. He loves chasing dirt. When I dig ditches he gets SO EXCITED, and loves leaping into the dirt as I toss it aside. Then he digs and yaps in excitement. He loves chasing snowballs. He'll chase them, and then dig for them. He gets everyone laughing hysterically when he plays. He also chases his tale (which may be what got him his name, Eddie), spinning around and around. He loves coming and sitting next to you, sitting on the edge of your lap, or laying on your feet while you sit on the couch. When we walk him, passersby are always enamored with how little and cute he is. I'm willing to negotiate on the adoption fee if you can't afford the $25.
