Meet Ant Man, better known as Loki. He’s a spunky, almost 2-year-old, 10-lb Chihuahua mix. Foster Momma thinks he might have some Jack Russell Terrier in him.
Loki is a bundle of happy energy who enjoys long walks on leash, playing fetch with a squeaky tennis ball in the yard, and wrestling playfully with the other dogs in his foster home. Don’t let his small size fool you; Loki can walk and play like he is a big dog trapped in a small body! Loki is the cutest thing when he’s entertaining himself indoors by tossing around a squeaky toy and carrying it with him wherever he goes.
He is house and crate trained – he takes all his meals & high value treats in his crate and sleeps all night quietly in his crate. Loki thrives on a schedule and routine. When it’s time to quiet down in the house, Loki settles nicely curled up in a dog bed or on the couch next to his foster dog buddies or his human for some cuddle and nap time.
Loki knows some basic commands of SIT, WAIT, LEAVE IT, and he is working on DOWN and other commands. While he is food motivated, affection is a great reward for him, too. He is doing well learning loose leash walking and would love a home where he can continue to learn.
Loki is best in a home without young children, as they can be unpredictable and overwhelming to him at times. Though Loki bonds quickly with the female nurturer / caretaker in the household, he is learning to trust men and would do well with a confident male handler in the household who makes an effort to be involved in Loki’s day-to-day care. Loki also does best with other dog(s) after an appropriate introduction.

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.
