Giraffe is no bigger than a shoe, at all of 7 lbs. He was a stray. Vet estimates that he is about 12 years old. His stay at a shelter since the beginning of August and his arrival at a foster’s home on September 13th up to the present have given insight into who this little guy is. Physically, he is thin, with his ribs visible under his wiry little Chihuahua coat. He is making up for lost time, though, and eats a lot! Other than his Santa Claus face, nothing else about Giraffe suggests that he is a senior. He shows no other signs of physical age. He has no trouble walking and his vision and hearing are intact. He is a sweet little man. His favorite past time, whether awake or asleep, is to roll around in one of those calming beds—they must really work! He will not leave it other than to eat, poop, and pee. He is housebroken and neutered. He is missing some teeth but those that are left are in good condition. Out in the yard, he must be watched because he can easily get underneath fences. He is not a runner as much as he is an explorer.
