Ellie is a cute, cuddly, lap dog looking for her forever home! She is a 6-year-old chihuahua/pug/beagle mix. I have had her since she was a puppy. She is bonded to her brother Eddie and must be adopted as a pair. Her favorite things include chewing bones, eating, cuddling, and any attention that anyone will give her. She loves to lay and look out the window with her brother. She doesn’t like heights. Ellie is getting more anxious as she gets older. She shows her anxiety by excessively chewing on bones (has never been a destructive chewer) and overeating. Ellie is friendly with children but does get overly excited and jumps up on them and licks their face. She needs to be reminded to sit. Ellie likes other dogs but can be shy around them. She has never been around cats.
Eddie is a fun-loving dog looking for his forever home. He is 5 or 6 years old, and I have had him for the last 4 years. He is bonded to his sister Ellie; they must be adopted as a pair. We believe he is a chihuahua/Jack Russell mix. He has anxiety that he takes fluoxetine (Prozac) for. It costs about $15 a month. His anxiety presents as barking, reactivity to new animals/people, and peeing in the house. He is crate trained, and when his anxiety is under control, he is housetrained. His favorite things are balls, bones, cuddling, and looking out the window. He is anxious and distrusting of men and barks at them. It usually takes him 3-4 times of meeting a man for him to warm up to them. Then, men are his favorite!
Eddie is friendly with children. He will sniff and cuddle with them for a while but then usually goes off to look out the window. He does give warning signs when he has had too much. He will pull back, separate himself from the child, and ultimately growl. Children have always respected these warnings and left him alone and we have not had any problems.
Eddie is hyperactive with new dogs; he doesn’t always understand personal space and can annoy other dogs. Once he is friends with a dog, he respects their space. He does guard food and toys with new dogs in his space but does well in shared spaces. He has never been around cats.
