Adoptable Pet of the Week: Savage

Meet Savage, a classy Chihuahua with a lot of personality and the newest Adoptable Pet of the Week. This 4-year-old comes in a little package and is looking for his forever home.

His friends at Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation have a few words to say:

Savage, or “Savvy” as he likes to be called, is a lot of personality in a little package! Once he’s had a few days to get used to his new home, he will be the ultimate lap dog.

He is a dedicated companion who always wants to be by your side, or chasing the tennis ball you just threw for him! He’d love a home where someone is usually around, such as working from home or maybe retired. Savage has thrived in an apartment environment and is fine being left alone as long as he’s crated. He walks well on the leash with some guidance to make him feel more confident.

He should be in a forever home where he will be your one and only, and should not go to a home with children. Savage is fearful of men — he needs extra time to warm up to them, but once he approaches you, you’re in!

Are you and Savage a match? Learn more about Savage and how to start the adoption process by checking out his complete profile!
