PARSIPPANY — Looking for a muralist to paint your life like Diego Rivera? I may not be him or have his talents, but I sure have his painting’s beautiful looks! I am a handsome three-year-old Chihuahua with a coat as smooth as an artist’s stroke!
I had a very rough start at life. My siblings and I came from a hoarding situation. We never were properly socialized or knew what love was until I was rescued and went into my foster home. I have been receiving more attention there than I ever have in my whole life!
I still am very shy when it comes to new people. I warm up quickly once I gain your trust. Then once we become best friends, I am quite the snuggle bug! I could sleep on my foster mom’s lap for hours on end. I love to shower her with kisses to let her know how much I appreciate her!
I am quiet and calm. I would like to keep my future home this way so it is best I go home with kids above the age of 13. I do great with cats! I will actually try to engage in play with them but most times they never play back. I don’t know why! I do well with dogs, especially when they are around the same size as me. The big guys can be intimidating sometimes. I am completely house trained and walk well on a leash! My foster mom says I do not need a crate when I am left alone since I am so well behaved! I do sleep in my crate at night and I do not mind at all.
I wish for a family that will provide me with unconditional love and continue to properly socialize me so I can reach my full potential! I am quite the work of art and my personality is, too! I just need time and lots of TLC for me to show you!
