Nokieo is being fostered in Toronto

My name is Nokieo. I am a 13 year old, 9 lb male Chihuahua Rat Terrier mix. Handsome, if I do say so myself.

After 12 wonderful years, my owner suddenly got very sick and could no longer care for me. I left Kentucky, and journeyed all the way to Toronto. I am now safe in my foster home awaiting a new family. It does take me a while to connect with new people, but when I do want to be around you. I will take a while to warm up to strangers, so you will need to be very patient.
Don't let my years fool you; I certainly don't act my age. I do like to walk and my little legs move very fast.

I really like to be inside the house with my family where I can play and have company. I won't just wait for you to play with me; I'll bring you a toy and invite you to join me in a game of tug of war... Squeaky toys are my favs! I also love napping beside you. One of the most endearing qualities about me is how I show my enthusiasm when I see my people. My little cropped tail just wags and wags until my whole bum wags along!

I am house trained and I have no issues with going outside to do my business. I am very low maintenance.

My foster parents think I was probably the only dog in my previous home, so best that my new home is the same. I am just as happy to stay away from other dogs but I get along with my foster brother. With all the changes I experienced, I am starting to feel secure again. I will be the best guard dog ever! If I hear a sound or see something outside the door, I will let you know right away.

I would make a good companion as I am easy to take care of.
