Breed: Xolo mix
Age: 4 years old
From Pinky's current foster family, August 2019:
I love this dog! You will never find a dog that loves his people more than this guy! Our house is full with our forever dogs or he would be mine forever. Seriously. Challenges? Yeah. He's fearful and does not meet new people well. But he is not aggressive. He loves ALL OF HIS PEOPLE. My grandkids went on vacation with us and he was head-over-heals crazy for them .... and them for him. And he's adaptable. Be crazy busy and he will do it all with you. Feeling sedate? He'll lounge with with you. I work from home 2 days a week and he just lays under my desk all day long.
Pinky is a wonderful young Xolo mix probably around 3 years old. We thought he was a chi mix but the Xolo features and personality are just too dominate in this toy size coated version. The Xoloitzcuintli or Mexican hairless dog does come in a lesser known variety with hair. Just ask Google.
Because of Pinky's reluctance to meet strangers, a Xolo personality trait, he will not be attending the adoption events but will be available for private meetings.
He is making slow steady progress with getting over his fearfulness/timidity. He is meeting many people at the adoption events quite well, but still reacts sometimes. He is fearful of small children so the best home will have older, dog saavy children. He did well with our older granddaughter and with an older son of a family friend. His ideal home would be with dog savvy people who are enthusiastic about continuing his training. He would be great in home with another playful small dog.
Pinky is such a fun, sweet boy waiting for his forever home. Will you be his perfect adopter?
