Meet Sammy! Sammy is what we like to call a Chug. That’s right – he’s a Chihuahua/Pug mix! Most pugs have a little extra to love on, but Sammy likes to keep it slim. This 16 lbs black beauty is about 2 years old but will forever have that adorable, under-bitten, puppy face!
So what do you need to know about Sammy? Well, he’s crate trained! Sammy can even hold his bladder for a full work day AND sleep through the night without any accidents. Sometimes he protests for a minute, but it’s only a little and it’s only a minute 😊 When it comes to new dogs, the confident cat (…well… dog…) is super curious and loves to play! He’s make a great dog-park buddy and does not require soft introductions. Sammy has never met a stranger and trots right up to any and all folk, lookin’ for some lovin’!
So, what else do you need to know about Sammy? This little dude is high energy. Thank goodness he’s only 16 lbs so running circles around the couch is sufficient 😉 No, not really. But in all seriousness, Sammy loves playing and entertaining himself, all day. Cuddles and lap-dog standards are in the works, but he’s proven to be a pretty independent man. If You’ve got a toy, however, he’ll love you forever and chase it all day! Taking him on a nice long walk or having a playful roommate should do the trick, but he’ll probably still surprise you with how much energy he’s got.
Overall, Sammy just wants to go-go-go. When he gets bored, he looks to his humans for the next fun game to play! Even though he isn’t needy in the respect that he requires oodles and oodles of pets and affection, he definitely needs a lot of mental and physical stimulation. Some good food puzzle toys would be perfect, or you can sit on the couch and binge on your favorite new show – all you have to do is flick your wrist to toss the tennis ball, over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over again! … but isn’t he just so adorable!?
Sammy is looking for his forever home, and he thinks that might be you. He hasn’t been around children and with how mouthy he is when he plays, it may not be a great fit. He hasn’t been around cats either, but he’s smaller then them, so let’s be real. He’ll be fine. Housebreaking is still a work in progress (but remember, he keeps his crate clean!), but with a little more consistency, he’ll get there!
