Stuart, not so little!

Hey guys! I am Stuart, and clearly am not a mouse! Although I am smallish, and cute, and will burrow deep into your hearts. I am 7 years old, about 30 lbs, and a neutered male Terrier mix, the non-shedding kinds. I am from TJ and was rescued from a Vet’s office where I was living in a cage for months. I have undergone a few medical procedures for some issues. I had a wonky eye that has been removed and I am a one-eyed pirate now. I have a fractured pelvis, an old injury that has caused right hip arthritis. I use pain meds and the pelvic trauma causes some pee dribbles. Other than that, spiffy! I am bathroom and crate trained, and working on leash reactivity.

My foster mama has said that I am a certified good boy!! I am a bit timid at the beginning but warm up with some TLC.  And once comfy, I am the most agreeable and let my people do anything to me, nails, bath, grooming, medication, all good! Honestly, I’m just grateful to have a home. I am good with all dogs when I have a proper introduction. I am besties with my 60 lb foster doggo brother! I am a generally mellow guy who loves to snuggle and sleep for most of the day. When all done with fun stuff, I literally army crawl to the crate and put myself into snoozefest there. I do have a naughty habit to whine and demonstrate anxiety in new situations so I’d rather be the dog who Netflixes and chills rather than paint the town red.

My mama says that anyone who takes me home will be infinitely lucky! Just like Stuart Little got the sweetest adoptive parents, I’d love super-loving pawrents! With me eager, pleasing, happy demeanor, I’d bring so much love! I’d appreciate some patience as I get comfortable at my new home. I’d be fine alone, and do well with friendly pups. Kiddos will be good too as I get along easily with them! Umm, cats are a no for me. If you think I can be your pawfect lil guy, let’s meet up! My adoption fee is $250 and that includes spaying/neutering, shots, and microchip.
