Little Phil is a total clown with the most piercing hazel eyes! He is an active, energetic pup that LOVES to be with his people in the middle of the action. The foster home he currently lives in has dogs of all shapes and sizes and Phil has no idea that he is a little man. Running, chasing, and playing are some of his favorite activities. When he first meets a person or dog, he is shy but curious. He often barks just to show he is a tough chihuahua but he shows his sweet affectionate side within a few minutes. A person’s lap, in Phil’s opinion, is the best place to be and he will quickly jump up the minute his people take a seat. Snuggling is another of his favorite activities and he will squirm and burrow until he gets everything just right and then he is totally content! This little guy is about 2 years old (and 11 pounds) so he is past the puppy craziness but still loves to kick up his heels and have a good time. He is completely house trained and walks beautifully on a leash. The crate is a good place for him but he really prefers the door to be left open so he can come and go as he pleases. Just like many small dogs, he barks when people come to the door or something new crosses his path but he quiets down quickly and easily. Overall, Phil a quiet guy that only shares his voice when he has something important to say(such as…. let me out of this crate or let’s play). Training is lots of fun with him because he really enjoys his food and will do whatever it takes to get that treat! He is one of those dogs that can win over people that do not like little dogs because he has so much personality packed into his little round body. He really is the class clown that will keep you smiling and wondering why everyone does not have a busy, silly, goofy, charming little chihuahua just like Phil!
