About Wilson

Adoption Fee: $200
Chihuahua mix
Age: Adult
Sex: Male

This little cutie is Wilson. He is a 6 %BD year old 8 pound Chihuahua mix. Wilson has personality plus. He is an adorable, cuddly little guy who will always have a puppy look. Wilson is tiny and can easily go almost anywhere with his people. He is house and crate trained. Wilson came into rescue because he was thrown out into the street to fend for himself. He was hungry, cold and underweight. When we got Wilson to the vet he tested heartworm positive. Wilson has been through heartworm treatment following the American Heartworm Society's protocol. Right before Wilson had his first heartworm injection he ruptured a disc in his back and had to have surgery. This little guy has been through a lot in the last few months and we are now looking for a special home that will be able to meet his needs as he continues to recover. Wilson needs a home with a family that can be watchful and careful, following his physical therapy plan and restrictions that are currently in place for his recovery. This home should not have large dogs, small children, or dogs that could be too rough in their play. Wilson is a happy dog who doesn't seem to understand why he can't be all over the house, jumping and running up and down the stairs but, he has some restrictions right now and jumping and steps are a few of them. Despite the things he cannot do, Wilson is eager to play, run, snuggle in with his people, and test his boundaries. He gets away with a lot with that cute little face and sure knows how to work his magic. All that meet him fall in love instantly with his quirky head tilts (as if he understands every word you say) and excited little hops. Wilson just wants a family who can spend a lot of time with him. He loves belly rubs, ear scratches, exploring the yard, and as much cuddle time on the couch as possible. Wilson is neutered, up to date on vaccinations and microchipped.
