Chico is a tender hearted guy who is dreaming of being a cherished family member. He is shy at first but warms up once he gets to know you. Chico is 10 years old and weighs 10 pounds.

Chico would love a family that is home more often than not. He would also love to be invited along on the family outings. He is true to his Chihuahua roots when it comes to burrowing under a blanket…it’s one of his favorite pastimes.

Chico is enjoying the company of the resident dog in his foster home and would be a great companion for another dog. It is unknown if he has lived with cats but he is a very respectful fella so dog savvy cats would be fine.

Because of the quick and unpredictable nature of young children his rescuers are asking for a home without children under 12 years of age.

Chico is posted for Save-A-Mutt Rescue. If you’d like to learn more about Chico, please email: or check out their Petfinder link:

This is not an Old Dog Haven dog. We urge prospective adopters to do their own evaluation.
