Mickey (Waterbury)

Type of Animal: 
Chihuahua Mix
Mickey is barely one year old but has already found himself living in at least 6 different homes. We can't tell you much about the first two homes, only that the man & woman in the second home broke up and neither wanted Mickey so he was given away to a friend. Now that friend is moving and can't take Mickey with her so she gave him to us.
When we got Mickey he had to move around a bit the first few days until we got him settled in his current foster home where he has settled in and is doing great.
Mickey is a 20 lb chihuahua mix. Mixed with what we're not sure. Maybe dachshund, maybe some kind of terrier, or perhaps dingo or mule deer. We're just not sure.
What we can tell you is that Mickey is very playful and smart. He loves to play with other dogs and cuddle under the blankets with his human. He is a blueberry addict. (Yes, while rare, blueberry addiction is definitely a thing.)
His favorite things are bully sticks, balls, and stuffies.
Mickey is a ladies man. He has a bit of stranger-danger towards bearded men (I mean who doesn't?), but we are working on that issue to desensitize him and he's doing better. Once he realizes that the bearded man is not going to hurt him he settles right down and loves loves him to pieces. This of course makes us wonder what his experience has been previously with bearded men to scare him so badly, but we'll never know so all we can do is move forward and teach him that all bearded men are not bad people.
Mickey was born in July 2017. He is neutered, vaccinated, Heartworm negative, and microchipped. He is being fostered in Waterbury, CT.
