Haru is a 9-year-old Chihuahua and Miniature Pinscher mix.

I first rescued him in 2017. When I went to pick him up, his previous owners said that his name was Irish however he has never responded to that name before. I suspected that he may have been neglected or abused because the vet found out that over half of his teeth were broken which we had taken out during his surgery when he was fixed. He also seems to be very close to women and skittish towards men.

Haru is very smart, he can pick up on tricks fast. Even with his age, he can still learn new tricks within a day. You just have to be patient with him because he gets scared if he sees you are getting frustrated.

The vet also recently diagnosed him with Mitral Valve Disease which he just has to take a pill for twice a day. He also has seizures as well which come and go fairly quickly (maybe once every few months).

Haru’s is very intuitive and protective. Whenever you are sad or not feeling well he gets extra protective and will guard the door and look out for you.

I am very sad to have to give him up however because of my husband’s health we can no longer keep him.
