The Humane Society of Silicon Valley posted an ad for a chihuahua who needs a home. They don’t pull any punches about Eddie the Terrible. They lay out three big reasons Eddie might not be the dog you want. Here’s one.
2) Want your kids to grow up with a full complement of fingers and toes? Not the dog for you.
Some dogs love kids. We have a bunch of child-lovin' dogs. Eddie the Terrible, however, is not one of them. Honestly he's a little whiffy with some adults, too. Not in an eat-them sort of way but in 'this makes me very nervous' sort of way. Eddie's never actually bitten anyone but we're not saying it could never happen.
In a home environment Eddie is lovely. He's housebroken, loyal, fun and friendly. He lives to play fetch. But socially? He stinks. We're in Silicon Valley - if we started throwing out the socially awkward no one would ever have another piece of new technology again. We know somewhere out this little guy has a match.
All this honesty might not be such a bad thing. Eddie needs a local home with no children or other pets and a human who has time for him. I would bet that the Humane Society is busy sifting through applications for hm already. Read Eddie’s full story at the Society’s blog. -via HuffPo Green
