Interested in adopting?
Cashew is a two year old, ten pound adorable dog who walks well on a leash, is house trained, and is a well mannered young Chihuahua. Cashew takes time to warm up to new people and new situations, he can take time to feel safe. Cashew needs a home with another dog who is calm, confident and gets along well with other dogs.
Cashew is getting the time and space he needs to decompress and begin to trust the world again. When Cashew warms up and is feeling safe and comfortable, he's so much fun! He likes to sit on your lap and keep you company. When he's feeling playful, he can make the cutest little puppy sounds! Cashew will do best in a home with people who can read his canine body signals, and who can be patient and willing to take it slow until he gains trust. He really tries to push himself to explore.
Cashew can be shy and sometimes fearful dog who takes time to feel safe and become accustomed to new people and places. Luckily, with his foster, he's gaining confidence and learning to be more and more brave as he starts to feel safe, which is made easier thanks to his foster sibling, a gentle Labrador.
Prior to adoption, all dogs are spayed/neutered, tested for heartworm, vaccinated (including rabies, if age appropriate) and microchipped.
