Meet Taco... a very happy and active, 6-month-old, 11-lb. 'Chiweenie' (Chihuahua and Dachshund mix) puppy. This young boy is needing to find his forever home because he's a little too energetic for the 2-year-old toddler in his current family. Taco gets along well with children, but because of his puppy energy, he would do best in a home with children older than 7-years.

Taco's a very loving and sweet pup, and enjoys cuddling and lap-time. He loves to play fetch and run around and explore his yard, so a fenced yard will be best for this little guy, so he can run and play safely.

Taco has already been taught a few basic commands, such as 'sit', and 'drop', and 'come'. With a little coaxing, he walks well on a leash, and he also enjoys going for rides in the car.

Taco is crate-trained and sleeps through the night in his crate. He has used puppy pads, but is doing well transitioning to using 'the great outdoors'. He's such a smart little boy, that it should not take him long to learn to only 'go' outside, once he is on a schedule.

Taco will do well being an 'only dog', but also enjoys playing with other pups, so we think he'd enjoy having another small and energetic canine companion with which to play. It would be best if he also had someone home most of the day to keep Taco on a schedule so he can become well housetrained.

Taco is a very healthy little boy... he is neutered, microchipped, current on his Rabies, DHP/Parvo, and Bordetella vaccines, has been dewormed, and is on Heartworm and flea prevention.

Taco's adoption fee is $225.00.

If you are interested in Taco, and think he may be your ideal canine companion, please visit our website at for information on our adoption process and to download an application, or you may e-mail us at for additional information, or to request an application.

FHCR offers a 3-week trial period with all our adoptions, just to be sure that the pet is a good match for the adoptive family. The fee is refunded if the adoption does not work out within the trial period. We want to be sure that each of our pets will have the perfect “forever” home!

Forever Home Canine Rescue adopts out-of-state, but we never 'ship' or 'transport' our pets. An approved adopter must come to North Carolina to meet their new canine companion and then take him/her back home with them.
