SECURE fenced-in yard
No children under 10
Home where my “talking” isn’t an issue
Another little dog (or more)
Someone home most of the time
Hi there — it’s me, Mateo. My foster mom says I can tell you all about me because I LOVE to talk — all sorts of sounds, some super loud, some just chatty, but I’ll give you my opinion on EVERYTHING. I’m a 4 lb, approximately 5 year old chihuahua mix with the bluest eyes and prettiest markings (so I’ve been told).
Here’s what I like. Toys — lots of them. Shoes — oops. Chewing — see “toys” and “shoes.” Blankets — softer the better for burying all the way under. Other little dogs — I like being a family. People — but sometimes I’m a little shy at first.
Fenced yard — I run FAST and love exploring. Cuddles — naps times are best on a lap, under a blanket, right?!? Playtime — I’ve got some serious energy to burn.
Here’s what I don’t like. Rain — I’m stubborn about potting outside when it’s wet. Walks — they scare me right now, especially when there are car noises. Car rides — but I’m learning to like them.
Don’t be fooled by my little size, I’m a bundle of fun energy and I like to be entertained. My foster mom says that when I entertain myself, I don’t make the best choices (see “shoes” again hah). Because I’m little and fast and underfoot, I can’t have little kids in my forever family, but I’m excited to find a family that’s just right for me.
