Dogs Needing Homes


Breed: Chihuahua

Age: Young
Sex: Male
Size: Small
Description: Hi! My name is Noodle and I am 2 years old. I am a black and white short-haired Chihuahua. I am a tall boy but I only weigh 5 ½ pounds. My favorite things to do are to play with other doggies, go for walks, and get my head scratched! I love toys, and I keep them together under the bed until I want to play with them. I have 3 big dogs in my foster home, but they are careful not to step on me and we wrestle and play all the time. I am a John Cleese fan and I like to imitate some of his “silly walks” which really makes my foster mom laugh. A couple days ago my foster mom showed me how to roll over and get a belly rub. Who knew it could be so awesome to live with humans? Oh yeah, I forgot to mention I used to live in a puppy mill, but that is in my past and I don’t think about it much anymore. Right now I am having way too much fun playing with toys in the yard, running around, doing my silly walks, and playing with my foster family. I love to play tag with the resident kitten but I know not to mess with the older kitties. I also love to go to the park. I just got to go to a secure fenced-in park today for the first time, and it was so cool! My foster mom took my leash off, and I got to run, run, run with the other dogs. I always stayed close to mom though so I wouldn’t get lost. It was awesome and I hope I get to go back again soon! I will have to find a home without small kids because I am so small myself, but visiting kids are okay by me. I would love to find a home with a playful kitty or doggy to keep me company. But don’t get me wrong, I absolutely adore my human companions. I like to snuggle in bed at your feet or at the nape of your neck. I love to be held and cuddled or to curl-up on your lap. I really enjoy meeting new people, so won’t you please apply to meet me?
