One would think that with a fierce name like Odysseus I would be unapproachable, intimidating even. With a stature such as mine with my 12 lbs of brute strength and muscle that  maybe I would be too proud to show a softer side. But my friends, this process, this journey rather, of finding my new home has been a challenge and a test of both brawn and brain. I work out daily, keeping my body strong keeps my mind strong. I don’t want to give the wrong impression however. While yes, I am a chihuahua that enjoys pumping some iron my favorite activity in the entire world is one that takes enormous inner peace and great calm.  This my friend, is snuggling. I have spent many months in foster care practicing different positions, adjusting and readjusting to ensure maximum coziness and most soothing benefit for my foster mom who thinks I am just an angel. But it is my time to move on, as it is theirs as well, and soon I must find a permanent place to call my own. I am perfect with the large doggie in my home and I love the small ones too. I respect the kitties completely and they think I am just the cats meow. I am loving and loyal, wise and kind. I am ready to put this long journey of change and homelessness behind me. I am ready to unpack for good and take a long, deep breathe and know that I am home.
Can you be the one to give this to me?  Fill out an application at so we can schedule a meet and greet.  I am fixed, vaccinated and microchipped.  My adoption fee is $100.
