“Well, Hello! My name is Spencer and I am hoping to find a new home. I am only 9 years old. My person says I am a chihuahua mix that weighs about 8 pounds. What I am supposed to be mixed with, I don’t know, as I feel all chihuahua-check out my great ears!  We chi are big personalities in little bodies!

“I love a warm lap. I crave my human’s attention. I live peacefully with kitties and children who are gentle and kind. What I DO NOT like are the new puppies in my home! I will admit, I’ve never been crazy about other dogs but I have been civil. With these big puppies, I am just not a happy boy! I am keeping my distance and letting them know not to bother me but they are puppies and they are annoying! This is why I want to move on to another home, my humans believe I’d be happiest as an only dog but I bet I’d be OK with another dog or even 2 as long as they are more mature, more my size and don’t pester me.

“I can be timid around new people and in new situations so please give me time to warm up and settle in. Once I do, I can be playful! I love a good game up fetch and tug of war. Chewy snacks and laser pens are great fun too! A warm sunbeam is nice to find as our blankets in a cozy, soft bed.  Mostly I just want to hang out with my humans.

“My adopter should be ready and able to afford my vetting. I have not been to a vet since I was a puppy. While I’m considered a young senior, I’m still a senior and we should have a check up by a veterinarian at least once a year. I will hopefully be around for many years to come so please take that into consideration when adopting me. I hope to never be in the position I am now, where I need to be “rehomed”.

“A home with stairs is not a problem for me. I have been pee pad trained.  I can “hold it” for quite a bit before I need to get outside to do my business. However, who wants to “hold it” for a long time? My human will tell you I’m not much of a barker; I am really a very good boy. I enjoy sitting on the top of the couch during the day, napping and watching the world go by. I don’t think I’m asking for much and in return I could be the very best friend you’ve ever had!”

Spencer is located in Auburn, WA. For contact information please email: referrals@olddoghaven.org

This is not an ODH dog; we urge prospective adopters to do their own evaluation.
