There's a reason we named this little guy Buddy: He's the kind of dog that just wants to be your best friend. Buddy is the happiest when he's being held and cuddled by someone he loves. One rainy day he must have wandered away from his previous owner. Scared and soaking wet he knew to find a caring individual for help. Buddy saw an open door at the business down the street from AALOC and found a sweet lady who cared enough to scoop him up and bring him to our shelter. Unfortunately exhaustive efforts to find his previous owner produced no results. Buddy is now available for adoption.
Buddy is small, about seven pounds, so extra care will need to be taken so he is not injured by small children or attacked by other animals. Chihuahuas make very loyal companions but do not understand their diminutive size - they will rush to protect their owners without consideration of the danger. They must also be protected from cold weather and falls.
Buddy has a friendly disposition and appears to trust humans after just a short introduction. Small in size, but with a heart and personality bigger than his entire weight, Buddy would make a great companion!
We recommend you stop by AALOC during visiting hours to meet Buddy before submitting an adoption application. He's looking forward to meeting you!
