Hi, I'm Maurice. Adopt Me!

Small Mixed Breed


Adult, Male

Maurice is a loving, resilient chihuahua mix. He is 7 years old and weighs 10 pounds. This sweet dog was originally adopted from AFRP as a puppy, but was returned to our care when his family could no longer care for him. He was returned in a very sad, stinky state with bald, scaly, inflamed skin and ears and required the removal of nearly ten teeth. Over the course of a year, he recovered and is now healthy and happy. Maurice will require a special diet, frequent baths, and veterinary monitoring to ensure that his skin issues do not flair up again. Maurice is ready
to live his best life in a new home! He gets along well with other dogs (and cats with a slow introduction), is potty trained, and puts himself to bed each night by curling up and covering himself with his blanket. He is happy to sleep in a crate, near your bed, or in bed with you. Maurice is a sweet and affectionate dog that is looking forward to a future of lap-time cuddles, short walks around the neighborhood, and sunbathing in the backyard. Maurice is currently in foster care. Meet and greets can be arranged once your online application has been received and approved.
