About Connor

Adoption Fee: $300
Chihuahua / Australian Cattle Dog
Age: Puppy
Sex: Male

Precious little Connor is very affectionate with the people he knows and trusts, and he likes to put his front paws on your shoulders and kiss you. He is generally easy to manage and listens well. He is especially cute when he does his happy dance around your feet with a big smile on his face. He is not hyper and actually quite calm for being a young dog. He does not bark much. Connor can be very playful but he definitely also has a serious and cautious side to him and cannot be considered easy-going even though he is self-confident and sometimes even frisky. He does enjoy playing chase when in the back yard with the other dogs he was found with. He has discovered that he really likes toys and chews. At first, he is leery of strangers, and trust has to be earned. If somebody tries to grab or trick him when he isn't ready, he can understandably get defensive and bite. He needs an experienced owner that can be gentle, patient, and good at communicating with him yet firm and persistent as well as keep him safe from people that don't know how to be respectful with dogs. Connor is housetrained and also knows how to use a dog door. He likes his crate and easily goes in it. He has been taught some basic obedience; he is pretty intelligent but independent when it comes to training, so he often gives us this look of 'Why?' until we motivate him properly to follow cues. Connor loves to go for walks in all kinds of weather and is getting more and more comfortable with the usual suburban sights and sounds. He is good on leash by now. He cannot be off leash as he would be likely to take off. Connor can be fence reactive to other dogs and wants to jump the fence to get to them. He needs a 6' fence or 5' and angled/with coyote rollers. He can pass other dogs on walks pretty well at this point as long as they are not right next to him. Conner may do best in a home without other dogs but could possibly get along with a mild-mannered young dog or female that won't engage in rough play as that triggers him. He is fine with the young females he came in with that he already has a relationship with and that don't challenge him. Connor seems interested in medium age children he sees on walks. Due to his fear of being t rapped/restrained he is not suited to live with small children that may try to hug him and trigger his self-preservation response. Not good with cats from what we can tell, nor small critters. Connor would probably be fine with apartment living. The vet thinks Connor was 1%BC-1%BD years old per end of December. He looks like he may be a Chihuahua mix and possibly has heeler (aka Australian cattle dog) in him and/or Shiba Inu and probably more. Connor is full grown.
