CongRATulations to the Reeves family!
Chachi is a little black and white teddy-type rat terrier who we estimate to be about 4-5 years old. He weighs about 15 lbs., stands 12 inches tall, has erect ears and a mostly black head with brown eyes. He has a smooth coat and a tail that he wags with all of his heart and soul. Chachi is housetrained and will alert you with a little whine at the door when he has to potty. He is crate-trained and seems to regard the crate as his safe place when he gets sleepy or anxious (such as during big, bad thunderstorms). This smart boy has quickly picked up “sit” in the few days he’s been at this foster home and waits to be invited up on furniture before he makes himself comfortable. He is very affectionate with adult humans and loves quiet petting and snuggling. He is protective of his humans so he’ll growl a warning at other dogs trying to nudge him out of the prime spot next to you. Chachi would be okay being an only dog, but he does get along with his foster siblings most of the time. Outside he’s a little butt-wiggling ball of energy, interested in anything and everything. He’s a bird and squirrel tracker, he’ll bark fiercely at intruders in your yard, and trots along nicely on a leash. He may be short in stature but he can jump and climb with the best of them. He can easily scale a chain link fence if the mood strikes him to go off exploring. Chachi is tolerant of cats but not very tolerant of children – especially toddlers who might grab at him. So a home with no small children would be best. Enjoy some photos and video of Chachi in all of his handsome glory at this link.
