Posted Breed: Miniature Pinscher / Chihuahua / Mixed. A CUTE LITTLE GUY: 10 years old / 12 lbs. Hi, my name is Amos! I came to Mostly Mutts from animal control, and it took me a little time to settle in at the shelter with so many different volunteers. I needed a good dental cleaning when I arrived, and I’ve received that thanks to a grant from The Grey Muzzle Grant Organization! I’m currently in the prison/foster training program off site and learning a lot! Please inquire at 770-272-6888 to find out when I'm available to meet. • OTHER DOGS/CATS/KIDS: I did well with the 3 small dogs in my foster home, though I do sometimes have some guarding behaviors, so if you have a little dog already, let’s meet and see if we can be friends. / I tended to chase the cats in my foster home, so I’m not too sure about them. / I’m looking for a home without kids as I may nip hard if I don’t like something. • PERSONALITY/ENERGY LEVEL: I am a pretty friendly little guy, though I am a bit hesitant and do have a propensity to nip if I am not happy with something, so just go slow with me and give me time to warm up to you. After having been in my foster home for several weeks, that behavior was much improved, but not gone completely! I can have meltdowns when I get upset, but my fosters can talk to you about how they help me through them. I will continue to work on this in the prison/foster training program. I’ll likely need time to settle in my new home too. My fosters describe me as playful and sweet. I may be a little shy at first, but I really do want to show you my sweet side. / My energy level is 3-5. • SKILLS/CRATE/POTTY: I know the ‘sit’ and ‘leave it’ commands as well as have good leash manners. Let’s learn more together! / My crate manners were good at Mostly Mutts. / I'm doing well with my potty habits on the shelter schedule and in my foster home. I wore a belly band in my foster home so please ask about this. My fosters also announced “go out” as a cue for potty time. • LIKES/DISLIKES: Though slow to warm up, I do enjoy attention from my people and once I know you well, I like butt scratches and rubbing on top of my little head. I will ask for attention. I also did well for my bath and was especially fond of the Pupperoni I receive at the end – lol / I don’t like restraint or hands near my face and am doing best with harness walking (with the harness left on). The volunteers and my foster family report that I am improving as I get more comfortable, so being patient with me is key. My fosters said it helps to announce “leash” as we get ready to get my leash on so that I am prepared for that. • MEDICAL: I'm current on vaccinations, micro-chipped and neutered. I’ve had a dental cleaning and 6 teeth pulled, so my mouth is fresh again. I came in with a heart murmur, but it’s doing well and sometimes not even detectable with the medication I’m on. I’ll need to stay on the inexpensive heart medication called Enalapril for life. I have an old man lump/bump on my bottom that was checked out by the vet and is of no concern – it’s just part of my old guy charm. I’ve been taking generic Prozac and it has been helping with my nipping behaviors. I should be muzzled for vet visits as they stress me. I am looking for a patient and loving family to give me a wonderful furever home! My adoption fee is $299.00, and I’m located in Kennesaw, Ga.
