I love Chihuahuas who look like Papillons. Max is one of them, a lovely latte and cream puff, left with us as his owners could not affordc his care anymore. Max is tiny and rather scared here at the care center. He is at the back of his kennel, making googly eyes. He does not growl, though or show me his teeth and accepts the leash. I have to pull slightly to get him out but once in the open, Max walks in one straight line, not forgetting to do his business(we are told he is rather paper trained).He is quite lost, wondering what he is doing with all these strangers around him and in a kennel.. He is trembling slightly. My arms might make him feel better..Max is picked up without problem. He fits snuggly on my lap.I caress his body, using my fingers as a comb. His skin feels like tiny gravels….Allergies, pyoderma…Our veterinarians have started the treatment that Max will have to continue at home. Max is not shaking anymore.He feels safer in the care of a human…Max comes with excellent comments . He lived in harmony with young children and played well with them. He had no handling issues and behaved well when left alone in the house. Max needs your help in the form of a new loving and welcoming home….as he is too shy to remain even shortly in a shelter environment. Will you open your heart to this adorable little nugget?
