Meet adorable Beethoven! He’s one of the most beautiful dogs in PPR. He is a male Chi-Weenie. He will be turning 3 years old in October. He was surrendered to Puppy Pals Rescue shortly after his momma, Layla, was surrendered to us. They both were well taken care of and loved by their surrendering owner who had them both altered. (Layla is available for adoption as well!)
Beethoven can be a bit fearful at first. He is not aggressive. It takes him time to warm up to you. He would prefer a less active home where it's quiet and where someone is home all day. He doesn’t like the crate at all – he cries non-stop and has injured his nose trying to get out. Beethoven’s current foster home is retired, so home most of the day, and has made him feel comfortable by using a belly band and allowing him to roam the kitchen and family room. If given the opportunity, he would prefer to sleep with his humans under the covers with his head on you. He is a very affectionate little dog. He spends his evenings lying on the back of the couch with his head on his foster mom’s shoulder watching tv.
Beethoven loves to go outside and play with the other dogs. He loved to chase his buddy, Sniper (who was recently adopted), around the yard. At the moment, his foster home has puppies (who can’t keep up) or old seniors. His foster home believes he would like to have another companion who is similar in size and age.

Beethoven seems to get along with all the dogs in his foster home. We are not sure of cats. He does wear a belly band as he is only 90% house-trained. Most of the time, if left out regularly, his belly-band will be dry. He doesn’t mind wearing it at all.
Beethoven has done well at Petco events meeting the public and has become accustomed to being petted. A few of our members will bring their young children (5 year olds) to Petco, and Beethoven will allow them to hold him and he does great. We feel that he would be a wonderful companion for the right home - perhaps with a retired couple who has another dog and possibly has grandchildren who come and visit.
We would prefer a fenced in yard for Beethoven.
Beethoven has been to our veterinary’s office for a full examination and was found to be in excellent health. He was provided with updated shots and was micro-chipped. He was tested for heartworm and had a fecal test – all negative.
We will be looking for the precise home for Beethoven so he will continue to be a well-adjusted young dog. We are not sure where his fear comes from, but once he feels safe and knows that he’s secure, it seems to go away. He is a great little guy who deserves a wonderful loving family.
