Hi Alicia- Brumby had his 12 week vet visit on Tuesday, and checks out perfectly. He’s gained a full pound since his first visit a month ago, and now weighs 3.5 pounds. My vet is pleased not only with his progress and health, but with his socialization. He is friendly, perky, alert, confident, and relaxed. He doesn’t shy, whimper, hide, growl, bark, or show any signs of fear of people or animals (not even the vacuum cleaner). It didn’t even phase him when she clipped his nails or gave him his shot. Not a squirm or a sound.
I have made a point these past four weeks to take him with me often on errands, visits with friends and family, Origins, Starbucks, Murdoch’s…even to Lifetime Tennis when I play. He is great around dogs of all sizes and ages, kids (but no handling), he rides in the car in his crate or my new travel carrier all without any issues.
I have to say I feel like I could not have selected a better suited puppy from your litters than him. He’s truly a joy. We can’t go anywhere without being stopped and complimented on how beautiful and well-mannered he is “for a Chihuahua.” In fact, most people don’t even know he is a Chihuahua. When I tell them they say had no idea long coat Chihuahuas even existed, or that Chihuahuas could be so friendly, calm, quiet and not bite or snip. I’m on a mission to give this little breed a better name and expose people to what Chihuahuas should and can be with socialization and training.
