MEET MARIO - Mario is a tiny Hairless Chinese Crested 8 years old and only 8-9 lbs. who will steal your heart. Mario is very shy and needs time to warm up to his new humans and adjust to his new environment. He is very well-behaved but will need a quiet home with no children, preferably with women because he is hesitant around men. Also, he prefers someone who is either retired or home a lot. Once he adjusts to his new family, he is a devoted, loveable companion who walks well on a leash, loves car rides, loves his crate, and will sleep either in his crate or cuddled in bed with his humans.
He is great with other dogs but unknown about cats. He will need a fenced yard (no chain link/wire fence since he is a climber).
He has a grade 4/6 heart murmur but does not require any medication at this time.
He is housebroken, vaccinated, microchipped, and neutered and a happy little boy who would make a great addition to the right home. If you think you can give Mario that home please contact Bald is Beautiful.
Mario is being fostered in Fort Washington, Maryland. Transportation is the responsibility of the adopter. Please consider distance and transportation before applying for adoption. Since Mario is less than 9 lbs he could fit in a carrier and fly in cabin or make a long-distance car ride safely in a crate.
