Khalid (the Great)

Chihuahua
9 months old - Short coat - Male


Khalid the Great is a 9 month old Chi who we rescued from the shelter. This little man represents all that is wonderful about this breed. He's just such a happy, friendly guy! Here is the report from his foster mom:

"So far Khalid has been a joy to foster. He is a spunky, playful, adorable little guy. He and his foster brother get along very well and they play whenever they can. He still has a little puppy energy that his foster brother can’t keep up with! He had to be reminded a couple times that not everything is a chew toy (Aka socks!) but a gentle no and giving him a squeaky toy or Nylabone instead has helped tremendously. Khalid appears to be House-trained. He knows sit, down and stay. He also does this very cute thing where he puts his paw up as if to ask for something. He walks well on the leash and we are working on heel. He and his foster brother prefer to walk side by side so it makes tangling a minimum! He only barks when someone is at the door. He lets out little “mini barks” when he hears someone outside but is by no means a nuisance barker. We are working on his crate training. He eats his meals in his crate. He is such a cuddle bug! He would prefer sleeping on the top of my head or cuddled up next to me! We will have him sleep in the crate with a fluffy dog bed inside tonight and see how he does throughout the night. He is a total Velcro dog. The minute he came out of his crate he was right by my side. He is such a good puppy. I can’t wait for this guy to find an amazing home!"

Khalid may be an option for someone with limited dog experience who demonstrates a plan for puppy training (this guy is a still a young pup and will need training!) and who shows that they have done their research. He is an option for children over the age of 8.
