Ben is a 3.5 year old, 8 lb Chihuahua mix. He is an adorable little guy, but he is very shy at first. He needs a quiet home where there is not a lot of people coming and going. He is not aggressive at all, but he will bark at strangers. Once he is used to someone, he is their best friend. He loves to cuddle on the couch with foster mom while she is watching TV. He sleeps at the foot of her bed, but he will also sleep in his crate or in a dog bed. Ben gets along with the other small dog in his foster home, but they don't interact a lot. The other dog is a senior, so Ben might interact more with a younger dog. He sometimes chases the cat. The resident cat isn't afraid of anything, so he is not bothered by Ben, but most cats probably would not appreciate being chased. Ben was slow to learn his potty training, but he finally got it! He may have a few accident as he adapts to a new home. Ben is not a playful type of dog, but he does enjoy chewing on a Nylabone. He's just now learning to walk on a leash, and is doing a good job, especially when he wears his harness. He has a good appetite (almost too good). He enjoys a little wet food on top of his kibble, and is always up for a treat. Adopters will need to be patient with Ben while he transitions to their home, but he will be such a sweet and loyal dog for the right adopter.
