Hi, my name is Dinky!

Young Small Male
Chihuahua / Mixed

Meet Dinky!  As his name might suggest, he's just a little guy but he has the biggest heart.  He is a super-loving chihuahua mix who's ready for his forever family to scoop him up.  Until then, he's getting lots of love and relaxation in a foster home.

Dinky's foster mom says he's a sweet pup who loves being near his people at all times. He walks well on a leash and is almost fully house trained. He gets along well with other dogs, but prefers to be alone.  And although he is a sweetheart, he takes a minute or two to warm up to strangers.  This isn’t surprising, considering he was rescued from a local shelter where he was very broken down.

As for activity, he's a low-key guy.  He likes to lie around and hang out with his people more than anything. Dinky's ideal home is one where he'd be the only pup, or with pups who are calm like him.  He deserves a family that will make him feel loved and very, very special – something he probably lacked in his former life!
