Spice up your life with Clove!

Hi, friends! My name is Clove, and I’m an 8-year-old, 10-pound, Chihuahua mix male. I’ve come all the way from Tijuana Animal Control, and I can’t wait to find my furever home! I’ve already been neutered, and I’m crate-trained, potty-trained, and leash-trained, to boot! I am a chill guy quiet kind of guy, but also happy to engage with dogs in crew that my size. I have had quite the history of health issues. I’m a TVT survivor, and I’ve had a urethrostomy performed. I’m on a couple of medications which include: Cytopoint injections every 6-8 weeks (price depends on vet), Apoquel (~$81 for a two-month supply, depending on where purchased), and Atopica (~$68 for a months supply, depending on where purchased) to treat my skin allergies, as well as Optimmune (~$60 per tube) and Optixcare eye lube (~$15 per tube) and 1.5% Ophthalmic Solution (~$15.00 per bottle) to treat my eye issues.

I love to stay on the couch, in your arms, or in the backyard all day. I’m a sweet and social boy and love to say hi to everyone I meet, and love smaller or same sized dogs as me! Loud noises tend to scare me, and I’m constantly on the lookout for more food even when I have a full belly.
My ideal household would be one who could provide me with lots of tender loving care. I’d prefer to have someone around most of the day, but if not, I tend to do fine if left all alone (no separation anxiety here!) Because I’m so mellow, I am great around kids. But, no big doggie siblings, as I am not a fan, but I sure love canine companions my size or smaller! I am down to run, rough and tumble, and play with them.

So, are we a recipe for success? If so, my adoption fee is $150 and that includes spaying/neutering, shots, and microchip. If you want to take me home, please fill out the form on the website here: https://theanimalpad.org/adoption-application/
