Evan - A771638

I am currently in foster care. Please contact my foster parent by email for information about adopting me.

Hi I’m Evan! I’m a 25lb. terrier looking for an owner that will take the time, and have the patience to earn my trust. I’m a little bit snippy right now, but I‘m a friendly guy deep down that looooves belly & tush rubs. At night I love to sit outside with my humans and their dogs and watch tv. I’ve only been with my foster family since June 1st and I’m making really great progress. I’m just getting to know my foster Mom, but I get so excited when she comes home from work, l can’t resist jumping up and down and giving her kisses for taking a chance on me.

I was found with a “cherry eye” (a non-serious ailment) along with another dog who has already been adopted. I was having a hard time adjusting at the shelter because my buddy was essentially my own seeing-eye dog who helped me get around. My cherry eye blocks some of my vision so sometimes I trip or run into table legs.

Ventura County Animal Services was going to do surgery to help the cherry eye (it doesn’t hurt me at all, it just looks a little icky), but I was so scared of everyone it would have been hard for them to take care of me while I recovered, so I’m learning to not be so scared in foster before they get me scheduled. My foster Mom thinks it would be funny to put a pirate eye patch on me, but I’m not so keen on the idea. It’s just a cosmetic imperfection, but I will be so happy when I can get my eye fixed.

Right now I live with two female Chihuahua mixes and I love hanging out with them. It would be great if my future owner has a dog that I can hang out with. Or possibly a retired person that can shower me with all the affection I deserve. I have interest in playing fetch, but I can’t see too well. [Not recommend for kids under 8 years old or so.]

I’m still working on crate training, but if my foster Mom sits with me for 5-10 mins I will go to sleep at night. I have a little bit of separation anxiety because I’m still getting familiar with my new surroundings, but I like to be with my foster Mom and I like to follow her around.

I’m still getting comfortable with new humans, so my future owner should have a couple of dates with me at the park so we can get to know one another! I’m a big love bug when you get to know me!
