Cute King was surrendered to a shelter by his ill human who could no longer care for him and he was transferred to CCRT via the shelter. He is a well-adjusted 3 year old Chihuahua mix with TONS OF amazing qualities! First off, he is completely housebroken and has had no accidents since arriving in his foster home. His foster Mom saw King use a pee pad once but he prefers to go outside to use the bathroom and will ask to go out. Secondly, this easy-going guy LOVES all of your typical canine activities – he loves his walks, loves to play fetch, loves toys (especially his squeaky ones!), loves car rides and loves to play tug with people and the resident lab mix in his foster home. This means King gets along well with other dogs. He also seems fine with cats. King has settled nicely into his foster home, which has 2 resident dogs. King is a fabulous cuddler and will make a great reading/TV watching/snuggle buddy. He is trustworthy when left home alone. He is not destructive and does not chew on furniture or any other item that he shouldn’t chew on.
As you can see by Cute King’s photos, his beautiful blond coat will require regular grooming (clipping, brushing). His teeth are in good condition and he is neutered, mircrochipped and up to date on all vaccines as are all CCRT dogs. He has *luxating patellas which do not bother him at all. He jumps on and off chairs and goes up and down stairs with no effort and no discomfort.
King can be quite vocal at times and for this reason, is not suitable for apartment or condo life. He would love a home with a chi-proof fenced yard. King is a great little dog with many great qualities.

*Luxating patella (or trick knee, subluxation of patella, floating patella, or floating kneecap) is a condition in which the patella, or kneecap, dislocates or moves out of its normal location.
Patellar luxation is a common condition in dogs, particularly small and miniature breeds. The condition usually becomes evident between the ages of 4 to 6 months. (courtest of Wikipedia).
