Facts about Toto

  • Breed: Chihuahua
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 9490634

Toto is looking for a nice quiet home with a warm lap, lots of attention and not a lot of excitement.. Toto was rescued from an elderly woman’s home who was placed in the hospital, then hospice and then passed away. Toto is a wonderfully outgoing, loyal, loving little man. When he is happy he jumps straight up on the air. Always a wagging tail and ready kisses. His nickname is Toto tootsie roll as he readily rolls over for tummy rubs. But he seems to be a one person dog. He has bonded with me but still after 11 months in my home he will not allow my daughter to touch him. So I am thinking that it will take a bit of adjustment time.  He is house trained and is good for 4-6 hours at a time if necessary. He was abused by a man and doesn’t do well with men.  He had a full dental in November 2015. He has no bad habits and currently lives with 2 older small dogs. He has lived with larger dogs in the past without any problems. But it has been my experience that he really doesn’t like larger dogs than him.  What makes him special needs is that both of his knees go in and out and he has a heart murmur which is not uncommon in small dogs.  He is 6-8 years old and weighs 6-8 pounds.

About Second Chance Companions

About Our Rescue Group...

Founded in 1993, Second Chance Companions is a 501(c) 3 non-profit pet organization dedicated to helping animals in SW Washington and the Portland Metro area.

We are a humane, no-kill organization staffed entirely by dedicated volunteers.

Although we do not run an independent shelter, we feed, care for, adopt out, and spay & neuter as many animals as possible. In addition, we educate the community and are always seeking volunteers and resources that help us to accomplish our mission.

We have a small number of foster homes available, but also work with private owners who keep their pets while looking for homes for them.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We have cats available for adoption all the time at the Vancouver Plaza and Gresham Petsmarts.

We also have adoption events most every weekend and often during the week too. See all of our currently scheduled events at:
