🕵️♂️ HUMPHREY 🕵️♂️
BREED- Chihuahua/Terrier blend
AGE: 7 years old
WEIGHT- 15 lbs.
LIKES: food, sleeping in bed with his human, sometimes accepting pets and chest scratches but not from everyone, likes humans “baby-talking” to him, tolerates car rides
DISLIKES: environments with more than one person, being left alone outside, walking on leash, being picked up, being held.
PERSONALITY TRAITS: Humphrey is VERY timid and needs plenty of time/space to acclimate to a new home. There is a sweet and kind personality peeking through his nervous demeanor. After spending a lot of time with one person, Humphrey seems to grow fond of them. He gets lonely but prefers not to be directly approached, touched or picked up. He has his own terms and needs to be given time to feel safe. Little Humphrey seems to have some considerable anxiety around walking on leash, the poor guy just cowers. It is evident he has experienced some significant trauma and/or neglect in his previous life, but we are hopeful that Humphrey’s person is out there for him. 🤍
POTTY TRAINING STATUS: Potty trained in his foster home; however, accidents can happen if he’s scared.
CRATE TRAINING STATUS: Does fine in crate and is quiet all night. He would prefer to sleep in bed with his person and is a good snuggler…on his terms.
EXTRAS/misc.: Humphrey completely disinterested in other dogs, cats, and rabbits. Very timid and skittish and will need a lot of one-on-one time to become comfortable in his new home. No aggression at all… he is just fearful of the world and life. We believe Humphrey would benefit from a slow moving, quiet, calm forever home. One where he will be given the benefit of time as he acclimates to his new life.
