Geno, our Adoptable Dog of the Week, doesn’t let anything keep him down. An adult male Chihuahua, he’s waiting for his forever home in Great Bend, Kansas. He is already neutered, housetrained, purebred, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Geno’s Tale:

Geno is an extremely intelligent 4-year-old male Chihuahua. He came to us a while back after being left at a vet. He did pretty well in his foster home at that time but had a couple of issues we couldn’t quite understand. Well, after a few weeks we finally figured out Geno was deaf! He is so smart he learned just by watching so it was hard to tell what was going on. Geno now knows the hand signals his foster mom has taught him and is doing great on leash training. He is starting to learn doggie language and is playing with the other dogs. He would love to play with the kitty but the kitty is just too grumpy. If you want a cuddle/love bug and a guy who will be your shadow, Geno is your guy!
