#12409 Corvus Crow

Small-size, Male, Adult Chihuahua,
Energy Level 2

Energy Level 2 - Likes to go for short walks but mostly is a lounger. Does not require much interactive play.

Greetings! My name is Corvus Crow. I am 3 years old and weigh 13 pounds. I love sleeping in my big crate in front of the wood stove, taking walks, and cuddling on the sofa. I do not like loud noises or foster mom walking her other pup (who is very large!) and leaving me behind. C’mon – who would? Anyway, if you want to learn more about me and my extra special personality, reach out. I might just be the pup you’ve been looking for.

Corvus is shy but is beginning to trust his humans more. He is extremely gentle: he has never demonstrated any cross behavior, even when being trained to walk on a harness and leash or when getting his toenails trimmed (the vet tech reported that he seemed resigned to the process and did not even protest).

Corvus loves to run on his training lead during his twice-daily walks. He is learning to potty outside only – if he does have an accident inside, it is always in the same place.

Corvus sleeps quietly through the night, cozy in his crate. In the mornings he is very patient, yawning and stretching while waiting to be taken out for a walk. He enjoys cuddles in the morning to start his day and in the evenings to help him wind down for bedtime. He loves to nestle quietly on the sofa - this and the walks seem to be the highlights of his days. He is a low to medium energy pup -- he will have zoomies once in a while but mostly he just wants to walk out a little then go back inside and chill.

Corvus is frightened by loud noises and will start at sudden movements. He still will react shyly when approached directly, but is becoming more relaxed and confident with human interactions. The best and fastest way to calm Corvus in a stressful situation is to pick him up and cuddle him; this has had a 100 percent success rate in his current foster home.

He did very well in another foster home with multiple small dogs, and he would love to have a small pup buddy or an adopter who could spend a lot of time with him. He will not do well with long periods of solitude. He has not been tested with cats.

Corvus will need a patient adopter who is willing to work to gain his trust. He is a flight risk and a secure fenced yard or dedicated leash walking is a must.

Corvus Crow Corvus Crow is currently being fostered in Doswell, VA.

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 Ashland, VA 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 Ashland.

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.
