Meet King - playful, interactive, engaging Chihuahua mix with REALLY long legs. He needs an active owner who's ready to have some fun and adventure with the sweetest boy ever!

He loves to jump on his foster's bed and wake her up in the morning but if she's not ready to wake up, he knows to chill out. He's so receptive and people pleasing. He lets her know he's ready to play and he does so very gently. While he can chill out, he also lets it be known he's ready to go outside and play by prancing around the house to get attention.

While he does sit or lay on his foster, he is not a lounge around lap dog. He's got a lot of energy but is self-regulating. He really needs an owner that will engage with him, play with him, and can take him outside to play and walk frequently. He loves little adventures.

While has not been seen him with kids, his foster cannot imagine that being a problem. So far, even in a stressed moment, which are far and few between, he only gently signals and never has bitten.

Looking for a small dog as a best buddy? King is your guy! He's looking for his active loving best friend, too!
Come meet your new best friend
