Hi, there! My name is Traver and I’m a 2 year old chihuahua mix who’s happy, healthy and sooo ready to rescue YOU! 

I’ve been such a great companion for my foster mom and love to follow her around the house when she’s at home with me.  She says that I’m a “house helper”. One of the things I like to help with is laundry. Sometimes I steal socks from the laundry basket. But don’t worry…..I’ll give them back to you willingly. There’s always more socks to grab next time, right??!! For being so young, I’m really very calm. I’m house-broken (I’ve only had one accident since I’ve been staying with my foster mom…yay, me!) and am learning so many new things. I’m still working on “sit” but I’m super bright so will have that down pat in no time. I walk really well on a leash and love to go for car rides. If the car ride is a bit too long for my liking, I tend to drool. Maybe short rides are better for me? The vet is not my favourite place to go (right??!!) but settle easily with some encouragement and cuddles.

Oh, boy….did I mention that I love to cuddle!! My foster mom says that I’m the best leg warmer at night. I don’t mind my crate but would prefer to be on top of it or best case scenario…in the big bed with my foster brother! I should tell you how much fun he and I have doing zoomies, playing in the grass and wrestling on the couch. I love every single dog I’ve ever met, even if they’re a lot bigger than me. If you’d like for me to rescue you, another dog in the home would be awesome….or at least being able to play with some of your friends’ dogs. That’d work too. I haven’t had any experience with the feline type so I think I’d rather stay around my kind. I love kids but I think I’d enjoy them to just be visitors rather than residents.

Even though I’m a huge lover of playtime, you can easily take a toy away from me, pet me ANYWHERE you want to (the more “scritches”, the better!), and groom me to your hearts’ content. I don’t like getting my nails trimmed. Really, what dog does? I love to eat and am not picky. If you think you’d like to be rescued by me, just make sure you love to snuggle….did I mention that? My foster mom says that I have a goofy face that makes her smile. I’d love to share my goofy face with you. But you’d need to be able to provide me with cuddles on demand, grass to sniff and a fence to keep me safe. I’ve got a ton of personality all tucked into this little body. Let me rescue YOU and I can show it to you first hand!!!!! 

Love, Traver
