Ollie is ready for adoption!! He is a 2 year old Cream and white long coated Chihuahua. Ollie has come into rescue due to being incredibly anxious and frightened around visiting children. Whilst he was fine with the families resident children he was struggling when their friends came over and the owners feared he would bite so heartbreakingly handed him over to rescue. They did not feel they were experienced enough to deal with the situation but did not want anything to happen to poor Ollie.
He is very handsome but is also very anxious and in need of a particularly experienced home. He has had zero socialization in his little life and as a result is terrified of strangers. Ollie has lived with his brother Coco and is the more confident of the two. He actually feeds off of Coco who makes him far more nervous and then they both feed off of each other’s energy making a big mess.
When he is away from his brother he calms much faster and is actually better with strangers, he does start to approach them on his terms. He’s great with other dogs and would benefit highly from being in a home with another confident social Chihuahua or small dog to show him the way. Ollie enjoys his walks although will bark if people come too close. Ollie scent marks but this has improved drastically since we had him neutered.
Ollie warning growls a lot and does not want to bite if he doesn’t have too but may do if he is pushed. He is a typical under socialised Chihuahua who needs an experienced Chi home to combat this. His behavior has come on leaps and bounds in rescue with other confident social Chis and positive reinforcement. He cannot go to a home with young resident and visiting Children due to the fact that he exceptionally fearful and can bite when he feels threatened. He will take time and patience but we are confident in the right home he will flourish into a wonderful social little man.
Ollie is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped and will be subject to a home check and adoption donation.
