Ramsey, 4, is described by his former foster mom, Cindy, as a charming Chihuahua fellow who recently spent some time as a guest in her home after his neuter and a minor eye surgery. Ramsey is somewhat shy but delights in being stroked or groomed and responds well kind words. Ramsey rides well in the car and enjoyed a couple of family outings during his stay in the foster home. He kept his kennel clean but is not fully house-trained. Ramsey insists, when it’s cold, on wearing a coat even for a quick potty break. Ramsey listens, and will work for treats. He is hesitant around new people and things but responds well if introduced slowly. Ramsey will do best in a quieter home without small children and he will need a regular routine to help with house-training. An operation to fix an eye problem was not successful so the eye was removed. The enucleation went well, and Ramsey is recovering nicely; the loss doesn’t seem to affect him.
