Chihuahua mix Neutered Male 2 years, 4 months 18 pounds

Finch is a handsome boy, but is pretty nervous here at the shelter. He found comfort sitting on a lap during testing, and even leaped into someone’s arms. He gets a bit scared when new people approach and tries to hide. Once Finch gets into a home and bonds with his new owners, he may act totally different. He’s originally from a hoarding situation so he’s under-socialized. If you’ve never worked with an under-socialized dog, please read up on how to socialize or work with an animal behaviorist. Finch enjoys treats so use food motivation to teach him some commands. He may know some, but was too nervous to perform. He enjoys the company of other dogs and gets along well with them. He will chase a toy and zoom around when he feels comfortable so be sure and stock up on soft toys. Finch is gentle and walks nicely on a leash as well as being housetrained and crate trained. However, always have Finch on a leash or contained as he is a “flight risk,” especially when he’s just getting used to a new home. He is also too timid to be around kids and needs to be an indoor dog. Give Finch time and attention and you just may have a fun, affectionate and loyal companion.
