Reuben is a 5 yo Chihua/Terrier X, 12 lbs & neutered. Having come from a very loving home, with an elderly mom, he is a very sweet cuddle-bug. She had her grown sons around a lot, so he doesn’t show any fear of men. He grew up with his female dog friend, Judy, so gets along well with small dogs as long as they aren’t too energetic-in his face. He can tolerate large dogs as long as they leave him alone. He has been really well-balanced. He can be left alone without separation barking, most of the time. Occasionally he feels he should be included and will bark, but for the most part he settles easily. He has been good to bark/whine to go out for potty. However, apparently his Mom had pee-pad trained them (as she wasn’t able to take them out much in the last year). So there may be some initial house-training to do, but he learned our routine fairly quickly. He is a really calm, quiet dog, who prefers to sit and watch the action, rather than be the action.
He is excellent on leash, though he doesn’t like to walk in the rain (find me a Chihuahua that does!). We don’t do off-leash, so we don’t know his recall, but he does show hesitation in strange environments so I would say “no” initially. He comes with a full luggage bag of bed, dishes, leashes, harness, sweaters, raincoat, shampoo, toys, doggie bags, treats and a crate if wanted. He has been crate trained, loves his assigned bed arrangement (preferring it to the furniture, unless we are sitting down for a longer period).
