Chico - about 3 years old, chihuahua-mix. Neutered. Rescued from the road in the middle of nowhere, a popular dumping place for unwanted pets. Was almost hit by a truck. Owners were never located. His back leg is crooked but it does not slow him down at all! He is a little lovebug. About 11 lbs. He loves to snuggle and be loved on. Very submissive except when it comes to his food. Not good with small children. He is housetrained.
Both of these dogs are the absolute best of friends. They sleep together. They play, play, play together!!! They are so cute to watch chase each other and wrestle each other! Chico grooms his "big brother" Cooper. They look like they could actually be brothers because their fur matches so well! They find comfort in each other. They just cannot eat food from the same bowl. They must be fed in different bowls. Otherwise, these two are the best of friends! The best of both worlds with Cooper being the smart, alert one who listens well and loves to be petted, and Chico being the silly little cuddlebug who just loves to squirm his way into your arms.
