Hi, I'm Ajaxx. I’m adopted!
Chihuahua Mix | Baby | Male | Small
Ajaxx was adopted September 2023!
Sweet Ajaxx is an approximately 9 month old tiny (only 4.5 pounds!!) long-haired chihuahua mix. He was picked up by a local animal control as a stray with a broken elbow. He had surgery, but unfortunately, due to his size and the length of time it had been broken, it wasn’t able to be fully align, and he still walks with a slight limp and holds it up at times. But it doesn’t stop him from running around and playing. Ajaxx loves playing solo with his toys and tossing them in the air. Because he is still a puppy, he loves exploring and finding things, especially those that have gotten lost under your furniture!
He is mostly housebroken – he is good about knowing he should go when you take him out, but you need to still take him out on a regular schedule. Because he is still young and small, would need to be taken out every two-three hours during the day. He loves adults and is happy to cuddle and sit in laps. Young kids tend to make him nervous, so we are looking for a home with kids over 14 years old. Ajaxx likes to try to play with dogs, but much larger dogs are too scary for him and sometimes even medium sized dogs end up being too much. It just depends on their energy level and play style. He hasn’t met a cat yet, but we suspect he might be OK (would have to do an introduction).
If you are interested in adopting Ajaxx, please fill out an application on our website as the first step. His adoption fee is $400.
