As evidenced by his ever-wagging tail, timid is not a word in Cato’s vocabulary. In spite of his pint-sized 8 pound Chihuahua body, he loves human affection and isn’t afraid to snuggle up with both men and women. When he is not outwardly seeking affection, Cato gets excited when the leash comes into view and welcomes as many trips into the great outdoors as he can charm his way into, even if it’s just a short walk on pavement. Cato is content following his human’s lead and is perfectly content cuddling, following his human around (great reflexes, rarely gets in the way), or heading back into his crate to relax. He is initially curious about fellow housemates and neighborhood dogs, but warms up quickly, most likely developing a crush on any female dogs! Ever the gentleman, Cato remains respectful, showing his affection through playing with squeaky toys and periodic face sniffs.
Outside of the house, Cato LOVES to be in the car and is a big fan of a car ride. While he is fine scoping out his surroundings from the back seat, he does prefer to be in the passenger seat taking up navigation duties. In all, Cato is the full package for those seeking a “smaller” full package. His love is unconditional and will be on display even on first meeting.
