Facts About Me
I’m Personality Plus!
Carlos was born about February 7, 2017 and weighs about 10 lbs. This boy is a ball of energy and LOVES his humans! He did well with the 7 y/o child that he grew up with, but the boyfriend had younger kids that didn't understand not to hover and move fast around him and it was feared he would one day lash out. He has your typical Terrier attitude and energy and should really be in an adult home and he needs a home where his humans are home much of the time. He is crate trained and his human worked full time, but came home at lunch to let him out and house training was going very well and he knows how to ring a bell to let you know. He LOVES his toys and had a cat that was his best friend and they would play chase throughout the house. He does love to sleep under blankets, curls right up for a nice snooze and sleeps all night. He will need a harness as he chokes himself on leash as he is full speed ahead! We were told he would run off if not leashed or fenced, but we feel his activity needs were not being met as now he comes and goes to work with his foster mom and runs straight from the door of the house to the door of the car – all he really wants is to be with his humans. He is wonderful in the car and he's wonderful with all the other dogs from the tiny Chihuahua to the Great Dane that we have wandering around here right now. He was not good with strangers coming in the house and feels threatened so he will be one of those dogs that you might want to crate or put in another room until the company is settled and then, maybe, he can join the party. Carlos is a busy body and can be verbal at times, especially if he's not happy. He will definitely not be your best dog ever, but are we ever happy that we took the chance on him because you can't help but fall head over heals for someone with this much personality!!! I would also like to add that even though he is said to be house trained that some of these tiny dogs benefit from having potty floor pads handy when they just can't hold it. FOSTER UPDATE: I just LOVE LOVE LOVE this little boy! He plays so well with the puppies in the house and loves to race around with everyone. He uses the doggy door but does also use potty pads. He walks past the cats but does also love to play with them occasionally. He is the first dog I've ever trusted off leash, he listens really well! He is still working on trusting some strangers but is just doing so well – I am so proud of Carlos!
