From the Foster:  Addler is the sweetest little boy ever. He is very quiet, which can be rare for a Chihuahua. Haha! He is fully potty trained and loves to snuggle and is very attached to his primary caregiver (me for now). He has adapted well to my resident dog and they are now wrestling and chasing each other around the yard. He gets along great with small dogs, but is fearful of bigger dogs.  He has just started to chew on bones, but seems to be a little scared of the squeaky toys and LOVES treats after our potty breaks and walks. He is for the most part leash trained however he likes to pull a lot and the only time you will hear him bark is when another dog is walking by. We are working on that.

When we are at work he does have free reign of the house and sits/lays quietly and waits for us to return. He cuddles with us at night and if he has to go to the bathroom he will wake you up. He is not neutered (but is scheduled for neutering on  June 22nd ) so when he first arrived he did try spraying in the house, I followed him around saying "NO" for the first hour he was in our house and he hasn't tried since. That was our only issue with him and it was quick to fix. This may not be an issue after his neutering.
