The dedicated Mr. Zappie. Zappie is a kind and regal Chihuahua.
He goes nuts for playdates. He has a favorite treat: butterscotch rawhides.
Although often he tries to jump in your lap even if he was not invited, he is as steadfast and true a friend as any pup could possibly be.
Unfortunately, Zappie was found living alone in the woods and scavenging for food. Zappie was brought to ShelterPups.com where he is being cared for temporarily while he waits each day for his forever home.
Zappie wakes up each morning hoping this will be the day he finally finds a new human. Zappie is a friendly, medium energy dog. Zappie's warm and friendly nature makes him the ultimate family pup. Some describe Zappie as a very sloppy eater and he'll be best in a home where he can get lots and lots of attention.
He is basically house broken, but will have accidents if left alone for too long.

There's a bunch of Chihuahua in this Shelter Pup!
Friendliness: Chihuahuas may look small and timid but these pups have confidence and attitude. They are proud, graceful, and dainty. The Chihuahua's favorite activity is being held by their favorite human. This pup may even do tricks to get your attention! Make sure you save plenty of time for your Chihuahua and never leave him alone for long periods of time.
Grooming: Chihuahuas can have long or short hair. Short haired Chihuahuas are low maintenance and only require an occasional grooming. Unlike many other long-haired breeds, long-haired Chihuahuas require no trimming and minimal grooming.
Health: Chihuahua are very healthy but also very tiny. Because they are so small it is important to help them stay safe -no jumping from high places or rough play with large dogs. Chihuahuas are also very sensitive to cold weather and should always be kept indoors.
Exercise: Chihuahuas may spend many lazy hours just laying around but they are still considered active dogs and require exercise. Because of their small size, simply running around your house gives them plenty of exercise!
