Name: Amos ***Bonded with Andy
Adoption Fee: $325
Hi My name is Amos. I am bonded with my brother Andy; we are both 6 and we have always been together. My foster Mom says we act just like human siblings and sometimes like to compete for attention and treats but also like to follow each other around and snuggle up together too. You might find it surprising that Andy and I are brothers since we are built quite different ( but of course we are both handsome). I am much smaller which is good because I love to be in your lap or even ride on your shoulder. I weigh only about 5 lbs but my personality is not small- I am quite the character and have a very funny talking-growl when I need to tell my brother or anyone else to back off. I enjoy short walks and sunning on the deck - but I am content doing anything if it is with my foster people. I am a typical Chihuahua and can be territorial and conservative when it comes to new people. I like my human siblings in my foster home since they are older and respectful with dogs; I think young children might scare me since they move too fast. I need just a bit to trust and warm up to a new person, but once I do I will follow you everywhere. I like belly rubs and also really like to be cozy at night and curl up under the blankets and sleep right next to you in bed. I am comfortable in my kennel if I need to be in there, but my foster mom lets us free roam when she is gone. In my former home I was trained to use a litter box so I am working on potty training outside, but will also at times use puppy pads in the house. When my foster mom leaves I get sad and will bark when she goes but I do an awesome dance and give lots of kisses when she returns. My brother and I would love to snuggle up with you if you are looking for two loyal and loving lap dogs.
