Gilbert has been adopted!

Gilbert /Male / Chihuahua / 14 Lbs / 4-6 Years Old / Adoption fee: $400.00


Gilbert is sweet, kind and has stolen our hearts with his charming personality. He is a fantastic dog who loves to be with all people, kids included. Scratches, pets and bully rubs are always welcomed, in fact are encouraged by his huge very expressional eyes. Gilbert is also crate trained. Once he sees you putting on your shoes and jacket he usually pops right into his crate and patiently awaits a treat for doing so. He is great with his business on walks too. Once outside he likes to find a good grassy spot to do his business. Although Gilbert lived with and got along well with other dogs in his last home, it seems he has decided he quite likes being the only dog in the home. He is very interested by all the other dogs in the park but once he is close up, he gets too excited and sometimes needs to be reminded on how to politely meet other dogs.

Typical Chihuahua, Gilbert is always keen to cuddle up under the blankets (will tuck himself right in if you don’t) and even jump right in bed with you. Gilbert is reluctant to get out of bed in the morning, he would rather stayed curled up under the blankets and away from the Canadian cold! (He is still adjusting but his new wool sweater on the really cold days helps) Once he is out of bed off goes the wiry tail again because he knows breakfast is on the way! Gilbert has a great appetite and usually eats his meal right away. He has been fantastic with all 5 (that’s right, five) cats in the house. He is constantly going over to check them out and say hi (every time they deny his advances but he doesn’t give up hope on his new wannabe buds)

Gilbert has been such a wonderful friend over these past few weeks. Its hard to wake up in a bad mood when he greets you with his wiry tail whipping back and forth, and his batwing like ears! I will be so sad to see Gilbert go but cannot wait for the person/ family lucky enough to get this new loving companion in their lives.
