Ely is a 4 yr old 10 lb Chihuahua terrier mix. He was one of the saddest dogs ever to come from the shelter. Look at him now!
Ely is such a good and sweet boy. He has bonded quickly to me and is very loving and trusting. With strangers he seems pretty wary and does not like to interact until he is ready. If someone new comes to pet him (especially his face) he retreats and even snarls a bit– after time though, he is fine. He is very curious and likes to explore– definitely seems like a street dog who isn’t used to living in a house and being taken care of, but has quickly become incredibly affectionate towards me.
Ely doesn’t seem to know any basic commands, but does appear to be potty trained (no accidents so far!). He is very curious and loves to explore and does like to hop on tables, chairs, etc, and grab food off things. I guess that’s how he survived. With some training, attention, and care, I have no doubt he will make the perfect pet.
