About Atticus

Adoption Fee: $300.00
Chihuahua mix
Age: Senior
Sex: Male

ATTICUS is a 9 year old, 12.8 pound Chihuahua whose person was trying to dump him on the street to fend for himself. Atticus is a very laid back, chill boy. He loves naps on the sofa and belly rubs. His preferred sleeping position is on his back and he welcomes a friendly tummy scratch any time! He gets along with all size dogs, but since he is a little senior he probably isn't the best fit for a home with an active bigger dog. We think he'd be happiest with another small, calm dog for company, but in the right home he would probably also be fine as an only dog. Atticus has great house manners and is potty trained. He enjoys having an open door kennel to relax in when he wants a quiet place to himself and sleeps in his kennel at night. Atticus has been to the vet for a wellness check, is up to date on shots, neutered, fecal tested, heartworm negative, has had a 12-month ProHeart heartworm prevention shot, and is microchipped with a lifetime registration. MORE about ATTICUS: Not kid or cat tested, probably not a good fit for a home with kids due to his age and preference for a quiet home. Fenced yard and a small doggy friend preferred, but not required with the right family.
