Facts about Paco

  • Breed: Chihuahua/Miniature Pinscher Mix
  • Color: Black - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
This cutie is Paco. He’s our resident funny and rambunctious little Chihuahua with a big boy’s attitude. He is about 2 1/2 yrs old and barley tips the scale at 7 lbs. He loves to climb all over you like he’s a 2 lb pup.

Paco is a bit on the feisty side at first meeting so a home and adult home would be best. However, in less a few minutes with you he’s the biggest lovebug ever. He will burrow himself under the covers and spoon with you when you sleep.

Paco loves to play with his toys and is great at fetching and returning the ball or toy. He loves to wrestle with his foster siblings and going on his walks. He is super energetic so having a home with an active family will be great. He also will not be good as an only dog left home all day so we’d prefer to have him in a home with another dog. We know Paco will bring tons of joy to the family who adopts him.

Paco's adoption fee includes:

-Current vaccinations
-Current flea control

About Precious Pals Pet Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Precious Pals Pet Rescue is a 501c3 non-profit animal rescue organization who specializes in rescuing death row dogs from the Los Angeles City and County Shelters.

We are a ALL FOSTER based rescue. None of our dogs live in a boarding facility.

We have a deep love for saving animals who have been abandoned, neglected and surrendered by their owners at the shelters. We also help in rehoming animals whose owners can no longer care for their beloved pet and don't want to put them the shelter.

All of our rescues are fully vetted prior to adoption and our adoption fee covers, spay/neuter, vaccines, and microchip.

Our adoption fees for puppies is $350.00
Adult dogs range from $300 - $400.00
Senior dogs between $150.00 - $200.00

Our adoption process involves filling out a detailed aodption applicaiton prior to setting up a meet and greet. There is an adoption agreement to be signed upon the date of adoption along with the adoption fee.

Our rescue is solely funded by donations and our adoption fees. We welcome donations via our website and our amazon wish list.
