Corky
Date of Birth: 08/01/2015
Sex: Male
Color: Tan & White
Breed: Chihuahua
Weight: 14 lbs
  • My story: Corky is a Chihuahua mix, neutered, microchipped and current on vaccines through January 2018. He is primarily tan with some white and weighs 14.5 pounds. He is house trained but crated at night. We have a fenced backyard so that is where Corky plays, sunbathes and does his business. He can be walked on a leash but due to his fears, we rarely walk him in front of house where there is traffic. He  is working with a trainer who indicates Corky's behavior is fear-based and not due to aggression. She is willing to work with us on the transition to a new, loving home. Primarily he has a fear of noises (e.g. cars) and strangers. He has not been exposed much to children or other animals but he gets along with his trainer's small children, her dog and other clients' dogs just fine. We boarded him for a week in April and have video of him interacting terrifically with staff and other dogs. The staff adored him. He  is very energetic and loving with us. He loves to cuddle and get belly rubs. We are now retired and will be air traveling frequently so would not be able to take Corky with us. That is the reason we are seeking to re-home him with a loving family who will work with him. This has been a heart-wrenching decision because we love Corky very much. Toni Germinario Tampa, FL (813) 766-5994
