Meet "Gavin Rossdale"
You’ll never mistake Gavin Rossdale - the adorable 5 pound Chihuahua - with Gavin Rossdale the 150 pound-plus human celebrity popstar. For one thing, they’re different species; but more than that – and better too – is that with Gavin Rossdale (the Chihuahua) he’s the fan and you’re the star.
Be prepared for adoration, long, loving gazes and a not insignificant amount of pure awestruck worship. To say Gavin is the tiniest and most adorable stalker you’ll ever meet is to understate the quality and quantity of his devotion to his human. He loves a tickle and a belly rub, a cozy spot atop a pillow or a sofa back, but most of all he just wants to be in your orbit… like a tiny love-struck dog-shaped planet.
At six years old Gavin is still quite puppyish, with a brisk skip to his step, bright eyes and a shy, inquisitive nature. He’s very sweet-tempered (never bites) and is rather timid about meeting new people; but with care and calmness and space to get used to company, he calms right down and will curl up next to a friend in no time flat. The only time Gavin barks is when someone comes to the door and sometimes if he sees a dog he thinks is showing off in the park. It’s his only diva behaviour.
Gavin’s shyness extends to his walks around the neighbourhood, where humans and dogs both cause him nervous flutters, but again, approached with calmness and firm yet positive encouragement, Gavin will keep walking and might even stop for a sniff or simply to be admired. His exercise needs are fairly minimal, but if you want to go, he’ll go all day at your side. Walks are very important and should be taken (at least initially) immediately after eating or accidents can happen. His house-training is not yet quite complete, but he’s so bright and eager to please that by establishing a routine and providing tons of praise and encouragement, Gavin is nearly ready to grasp exactly where and precisely when he is expected to do his business.
He loves his food, his snacks, his belly rubs, but above all else, he loves his human. If you think you can take all the love a simply enormous heart in a tiny little body is longing to give, Gavin is the one for you. Apply for him here.
