Learn more about the Chihuahua.

Sweet little Ralphie is ready to find his new home!  This cutie was at a local shelter and was never claimed.  We are happy that he is now a Pixie and we will find him a great new home.  Ralphie is about 4 years old and weighs 11 pounds - he is on a diet and will need to continue to lose weight as he is a bit chubby.  

Ralphie's best feature is his smile!  He looks up at you with such love and affection and you can see his happiness in his smile. Ralphie likes everyone he meets and loves to follow his foster mom everywhere she goes.  He would love a person all his own to be the center of their attention!  Ralphie is nicely leash trained and likes to go for walks.  He loves to be outside.   A fenced-in yard would be nice but not required as long as he gets some exercise outdoors.  Ralphie is a snuggle bug too - he is a big cuddler.  And boy can he snore!    Ralphie would prefer to be the only dog in his new home - he wants to be the boss!  He does fine with the dogs in his foster home but has given other dogs a run for their money.  He is also a known cat chaser so a cat-free home is best.  He has not been around children in his foster home, but we do not anticipate any issues as long as the kids are a bit older and respectful to Ralphie.  Ralphie was diagnosed with a heart murmur but does not require any medication.

Ralphie is neutered, up to date with vaccines, microchipped, flea/worm treated and tested neg. for heartworm.  He has also seen our full-service vet for a check-up!  Ralphie's adoption fee is $300
