Are you a patient human looking to share your life with an energetic, puppy-like cutie? Chico would just love to meet you!

This adorable guy came into our care recently after an owner surrender, meaning his prior owner was no longer able to care for him. Chico is 14 months old and this playful pup absolutely adores the company of the resident dog in his foster home, who is a playmate and all-around buddy (and wrestling partner) to Chico.  His ideal furever home will have a small, playful dog as a playmate and companion and preference will be given to such.”

When he’s not melting hearts with his adorable, puppy-like face, this guy has boundless love and energy, always bouncing around and looking to play. He currently lives with his foster parents, their child, two small foster dogs and a cat. He seems to enjoy the activity level in the house, and gets along just fine with other small dogs and cats.

A true Chihuahua, Chico has become enamoured with his foster mom and will follow her around like a shadow. When he’s finally exhausted himself from playing, he loves to snuggle on her lap. Do you have a lap for Chico to snuggle on?

As he’s still quite young, this little guy is still getting used to the concept of house training. He’s learning fast but has had some accidents when left alone for longer periods. For this reason, he needs a home with a consistent schedule and someone who is dedicated to continuing some basic training with him. He’s a smart little guy that recently started to play fetch and will likely catch on quickly to many more things!

A typical chi, Chico is not a huge fan of his humans leaving him alone. He cries for a short time if left alone, but hasn’t shown any severe separation anxiety.

Chico would love an active household that can keep up with his energy level and play as hard as he does. Are you all about long walks on the beach or afternoons in the dog park? Having another young dog to be his playmate would be another huge bonus!

If Chico is your guy, he hopes you’ll complete an adoption application for him. You can also purchase a sweater and/or blanket for him, or any of our other fosters dogs.
