Breed: Daschund, Chihuahua
Age: 13 years
Sifu is was owner surrendered after his owner could no longer care for him due to their age. Sifu is not having the smoothest time with the transition as he was in the owners home since he was a puppy. Sifu clings to his foster mom and tolerates his foster dad and graces their housemates with his presence. Sifu can be a little hand shy, thus we are looking for a foster or adopter who can understand that Sifu is on his own time when it comes to warming up. Sifu will want to sleep in your bed or right next to you on a dog bed. We are looking for an adopter who lives in a house with a secured fence, as Sifu loves to sunbathe and will escape a faulty fence. Sometimes Sifu will bark for 5-10 minutes after you leave the house, we believe that is because he is scared of being abandoned. He has gotten better in the first week of being in his foster home. Sifu loves playing with his foster siblings (dogs of all sizes from 5 lbs to 70 lbs). Sifu will carry around a stuffed toy and sleep with it. Sifu likes to rest in a crate with the door open, his fosters are working on closing the door and covering the crate at night, but he barks for about 10 minutes and falls asleep. Sifu would love a PATIENT adopter who will take him to a dog park and let him warm up on his own accord.
