Hi! My name is Hairy Pawter and I'm a handsome smiling hairy dude! I’m looking for a very special patient forever family. My breed is believed to be Chinese crested terrier mix. I was a skinny guy but now I'm bulked up and weigh 7 lbs. I'm around 5-6 years old but I still act like a puppy. I have beautiful teeth with the cutest underbite! I’m not so great around kids as I play too rough, and I get scared at sudden movements. My forever family will be an adult only home. I need lots of patience and understanding as I get stressed out easily. I have a little bit of itchiness, so I take Benadryl every day. I also need a bit of calming medication as when I get startled, I sometimes snap. I am good with other friendly dogs!
My foster family calls me Hairy Plopper because when I get tired, I will walk up to foster mom and just plop myself right onto her chest, curl up on her neck and have myself a nap! I also do have the cutest smile ever. I do best with less people around and I really hate groomers, but I will tolerate a nice warm bath but forget about the blow dry… and DO NOT mess with my face!!! I need extra love and I hate the kennel so foster mom puts me in a small, gated enclosure for feeding because that's MY food and I don't like sharing it at all. My foster mom says I have to let folks know that I wear a belly band because I wasn't neutered until recently when I came to her house, and I still think I should mark all the territories because that’s what I always did before. It will take me time to trust a new place and people, but I will give all the loves if you have patience. I'm neutered and I visited the Vet man and got all my shots already too! My dream is to have a big fenced in yard because you see, I'm a fast, fast runner!! And maybe even a family with another small, friendly dog.
I am currently living with my foster family in Bellefontaine, Ohio and my adoption fee is $375.00.
