NEEDS A CONFIDENT, FRIENDLY RESIDENT DOG OF A SIMILAR SIZE
NOT CAT TESTED
OLDER DOG SAVVY CHILDREN
LOVING PAWRENTS WHO LOVE TO CUDDLE BUT WILL ALSO HELP HIM GROW INTO THE HANDSOME MAN HE WAS ALWAYS MEANT TO BE.
Dante is a 4 Year old Chihuahua described by his foster mum as the most friendly and loving boy who just adores cuddles and belly rubs. He’s a timid boy on first meeting a new person but rolls straight onto his back for tickles. Once you’ve given him attention, he melts and he’s all yours! He is the happiest little guy with expressive ears and a goofy smile.
Dante’s health will be discussed with any potential adopters
Dante is a real people person and loves nothing better than to be on your lap or next to you on the couch. He loves to give tiny gentle love nibbles and gets so excited to see you that he does a little dance with his front paws in the air. He’s coming out of his shell more and more each day and is starting to show a playful side with his foster Mum.
Dante hasn’t been tested with children. Due to his incredibly lovely character he’d be happy living with children over 10 years old. He can be timid so may be overwhelmed by younger children and might struggle with children who are very loud.
Dante has not been tested with cats but hasn’t reacted when they have been in the garden. If introduced to a dog savvy cat, you’d probably find them cuddled up in no time!
Dante is still learning to wee outside but his training is going well and he is very eager to please.
Dante does not like to be left alone but is happy to be left with another dog for a few hours. He likes to do a few barks as you leave but settles quickly and will be cuddled up on the couch until your return. You’ll then be greeted as if you’ve been gone for weeks.
Dante is happy to sleep downstairs overnight with another dog. He does not like to be left alone and is likely to howl for a period of time. Before his foster sister arrived, Dante slept in bed with his foster Mum as being alone really worried him. He was an absolute gentleman and seemed to understand immediately that dogs don’t wee in the bedroom.
Dante loves his food but it might take him a week or so to be comfortable taking food directly from you. He likes to know where you are and not be left completely alone while he’s eating. Dante will head over to his foster sister’s bowl when she’s finished but calling him to you, will make him take a sharp turn to get attention. If unsupervised he may try to eat another dog’s food. Dante is very gentle taking food from you and will sneak in a little lick of affection too.
Dante doesn’t have lead training yet so he will need to be introduced to the world slowly using lots of positive encouragement and support to get him trained. He currently takes walks inside his foster Mum’s coat for now and enjoys watching everything going on around him. He will progress to lead walks following his second jab.
Dante loves his foster sister and gives her kisses on the face. He’d love to play with her but she’s not there yet. Dante has got a lot of confidence having had another dog around, I think her being female made him puff up his chest a bit more and be braver!
Dante would love a home where someone is home for the majority of the time. Dante must be homed with another friendly, outgoing dog. He is starting to show interest in toys but luckily hasn’t shown any interest in his foster Mum’s possessions or household items. Dante is the most loving little clinger and would be happy to join anyone willing to give him the time and attention he adores. He really couldn’t be sweeter.
