SIRUS

Sirus is a long coat blue pure Chihuahua DOB Nov. 2011.  He has been desexed, immunized, microchipped, had worm and flea treatment.  His coat is in the process of growing back.  Sirus loves his toys and bring them to you but won't let you have them!!  He is beautifully topilet trained, and just LOVES toys especially pink ones!

Previous history for Sirus:- First owner quoted:-  We got him out of a pound one day from deaths row!  So everything we know of him is just guesswork, but we estimate his age at about 18 months, and possibly the result of a puppy farm situation.  When we picked him up he would not go anywhere near anyone or anything!  Over the eight weeks he slowly came out of his shell.  He would roll on his back for tummy rubs and this was the only way he would allow you to pick him up!  But we just worked with his wishes, not wanting to force him in any way, just gentle rules and love.  He was very good the first time I bathed him, and even better the second time!  He loves his toys - or all toys, but especially the pink ones!!  Once you pick him up he likes to sniff your face and nose!!  He is not shy of getting cuddles!  We have not tried walking him yet, so that is some training still to do.
He did not bark for a long time, but now he does bark when greeting us each morning and runs around in circles etc.
I am sure he will "come round" eventually.

Friend of Chi Rescue Vic, Lynn picked Sirus up from the first owners and while Lynn had him for three days, she had him coming up to her when she offered him Smackos!  So it is possible he might work on the "rewards" system.  We normally work by voice command only, so maybe Lynn's method may work better in his case!
Sirus sleeps inside and has access to our backyard throughout the day.  I would not say he is 100% toilet trained yet but certainly we are no longer having accidents here.

Sirus was then placed with a young couple in October 2013.  He has returned to Chi Rescue Vic May 2015 due to very sad and  unfortunate family circumstances.
However while with this loving Family he has learned a great deal.  He is toilet trained, loves cuddles and giving kisses!  Very quiet and still just a little shy.

Sirus does suffer the "blue" colouring problem of alapecia (hair loss in places) however it does grow back.  He requires some oil in his diet to help offset this.  His price is $200.
