#10116 Blonde Espresso Roast

Small-size, Male, Adult Chihuahua,

Hi! My name is Blonde Espresso Roast and I'm part of the Starbucks transport coming 10-23-20. I'm guessed to be a Chi Mix and about 2 years old. I'm a sweet boy and I pack a lot of personality in my 13 lbs. I'm equal parts determined athlete and cuddle bug and I’m making my way north in search of a new family. Is that with you? If so apply today! I won't be available for long!

☕️ I don’t like every dog I’ve met, but have made friends with several dogs of different sizes in my foster home.
☕️I like wrestling with my dog friends and foster mom says I like to pretend I’m ferocious, I’d like to think I just play at 110%.
☕️I like my kitty foster siblings, but they don’t always like how much I want to play.
☕️I’m crate trained (but like to hold out to get more treats, bribery is good 😉)
☕️I like to be rolled up in a blanket or under the covers to sleep.
☕️I’m not fond of being left behind and sometimes I can be rather loud with my protests. Foster mom tries to distract me with yummy puzzle treats and my stuffed Kong toy. Some days I’m brave and know she’ll be home soon. But some days I just get too worried to want to eat my yummy treats.
☕️I’m mostly potty trained in my foster home, but have mistakes every now and then. I’ll need my new family to be patient while I figure out a new routine.
☕️I love food! I’m no picky foo foo doggo. Ok maybe I’m not too fond of veggies... (unless there’s dip!)
☕️I like to play with toys. Emptying the toy box in my foster home is a favorite game. If no one wants to play tug of war or fetch, it’s ok I’ll just play by myself.

This dog tested positive for heartworm disease before arriving to the rescue. The disease was treated while in foster care. Heartworm disease is transmitted to a dog through a bite from an infected mosquito. With monthly preventatives, the disease is completely preventable.

Blonde Espresso Roast is up-to-date on his vaccinations and has been neutered. He is best in a home without small children and is not suitable in an apartment, condo or other urban setting. Blonde Espresso Roast is currently being fostered in Nottingham, MD.

All adult dogs, cats, and kittens are altered prior to adoption. Puppies too young to be altered at the time of adoption must be brought to our partner vet in Davidsonville, MD for spay or neuter paid for by Operation Paws for Homes by 6 months of age. Adopters may choose to have the procedure done at their own vet before 6 months of age and be reimbursed the amount that the rescue would pay our partner vet in Davidsonville.

This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
