Personality:

Jackfruit is a great little dog (not to mention super cute). He's an 11 pound, medium energy Chihuahua mix. He is a very cheerful guy—always happy to see us humans and greets us with vigorous tail wagging. Jackfruit is very cuddly and loves to snuggle on a lap whenever possible. He enjoys being outside in our yard, sniffing and watching the neighborhood activity, and is 95% housetrained. He also really likes his walks and gets very excited when he sees his leash. While on walks, he doesn’t bark at other dogs and greets them appropriately.

Jackfruit is starting to play with soft/cloth toys and will even do a few rounds of fetch. He quickly adapted to our household routine and now enjoys sleeping in his crate at night. He's especially good at burrowing into his blanket to get comfy. He's well behaved, seems to know “stay,” and has not chewed on any shoes, furniture, etc. He doesn’t even eat weird stuff off the ground! Jackfruit is not at all interested in his foster brother (shih tzu mix) so he might be more comfortable in a home with no dogs. He's also not very happy in the car (only has taken 3-4 rides) but that may just be from lack of experience and he settles down if he has someone to cuddle him. He does have a bit of a problem with guarding the sofa (like many Chihuahuas) and is working on changing that behavior. All in all, Jackfruit is a really fun little dog and will be a welcome addition to the right family.
