Toby is a Chihuahua mix approximately 4 years old. He was found running loose and brought to the shelter and now he is looking for a home.
Toby is a little guy but he doesn't have a small dog presence about him. Some people believe that Chihuahuas originated from the Fennec Fox and Toby certainly has a foxy look in his appearance. He is cute and strong looking but he wants to get to know you before he will let you into his world. He is a little bit shy at first but once he trusts you, he will warm up. He is very energetic and playful and plays very well with the other dogs at the shelter.
The Chihuahua is known to be courageous, lively and adventurous and very affectionate. They tend to have a sassy nature with terrier-like attitudes of self importance, confidence and self-reliance. They don't need a lot of exercise other than play time but a daily walk is fun for them and also satisfies their need to explore new things. Chihuahuas respond best to gentle training with positive reinforcement.
Because of his size Toby would do equally well in an apartment or house. If you are interested in seeing this small wonderful little dog, come and see him at Dog & Kitty City.
