This is Paco!
Paco is about 8 years old and 11 pounds. He is a Chihuahua and Rat Terrier Mix. His owner passed away and he was surrendered to the shelter.
Paco is in a foster home with 2 other Chihuahuas and 2 adult cats. He is a bit insecure and would do best with cats or other small dogs his size. He is crate trained and housebroken.
He has a grade 5 heart murmur which causes some coughing. He is on two different medications called Lasix and Enalaphil that he takes daily. Monthly cost for the medication is $28-30 at vet pricing. He will need to stay on the medication.
Paco is socialized and loves going for car rides and visits to friends house or pet stores. He is well mannered and calm. He has typical Chihuahua personality were he barks at times but not all the time.
He is looking for someone that will be home most of the time and give him plenty of attention.
