Barney is the dog for you if you’re looking for love, affection, loyalty, and constant companionship.  He’s fine with another dog in the home of his own size but gets a bit overwhelmed with lots of dogs surrounding him.  His current foster sister is a 55 pound Alaskan Husky.  He is OK at the dog park with dogs of all sizes, as long as he is closely supervised since he thinks he’s a big dog.  He has lots of energy, is very intelligent and curious, and would love to join a home where he can spend lots of time playing then cuddle up in his favorite person’s lap or sleep in a den he has made out of out of blankets.  He is a little nervous around new people (especially strange men) at first but will warm up to them after a couple of encounters.   He displays the following typical Chihuahua traits: comical, entertaining, spirited, loyal little dog who considers you the center of his universe, and the following pug traits: similar to Chihuahuas with a curly twisty sort of tail, and a solemn expression or a smile on its face depending on the moment. Both Chihuahuas and Pugs thrive on human companionship and Barney will stick to you like velcro. He is house and crate trained.
