Mogwai is a 3 year old male Chihuahua. He has come into our care due to aggression problems in the home with young children and occasional strangers. His family felt that younger children really stressed him out and despite some input from a behaviorist they were ultimately told that he would be happier in a child free environment with more experienced owners. In his previous home he has bitten young children and a neighbour although the circumstances around the bites are unknown. We do feel neutering has helped a lot with his aggression issues.
Mogwai is a very happy and easy going little dog with correct introductions, he is initially a little bit fearful at first meets but very friendly otherwise. He loves going for walks, playing with toys and has a good degree of basic obedience. He walks well on the lead but is still a bit fearful indicating he has not had as much socialisation as he requires. He gets on really great with other dogs and enjoys playing with them, he travels well in the car and enjoys going to new places. Inside the home he is calm and well behaved. He is like a little pocket rocket bouncing around all over the place when he gets excited but we think that’s his cheeky side. He sleeps quietly downstairs in his crate with no issues and has no separation problems.
Mogwai is an affectionate little chap who will really thrive in the right home. He is a very simple and uncomplicated lad that has shown no concerning behaviour whilst under our care other than needing typical Chihuahua boundaries put in place and initial space with first meets. He needs a quieter home with structure, routine and with no children so that he has full capability to succeed. He shows fantastic, positive traits of his breed with huge potential to train and learn new things. He is an adorable, willing and vibrant dog who will slot straight into any dog loving family.
