Hi, my name is Tico, and I am 4 lbs of love. I'm a bit nervous when I first meet anyone, I'm small and unfortunately one person I trusted in the past we not nice to me at all, so I have to earn your trust, sometimes it can take minutes, sometimes hours or even a few days.

I need lots of love and comforting to know that I can trust you, but once I learn to trust you I will be your loyal and loving companion always. I'm pretty playful, but mostly love to snuggle, and just be with you whenever I can.
I am healthy, 2 years old, adorable (so I'm told), and good with other dogs, bigger cats I tend to bark at, and chase smaller ones, but I have not hurt anyone. I do warm up to women faster than men, and I may even try and snip at you, but if you show me you are just there to care for me, I'll be a good boy. Homes with small children are probably not ideal for me, because I get startled easily, and loud noises scare me, sometimes when the wind blows too hard outside, I duck down because I think something scary is going to happen. I'm house trained, but sometimes if I'm very nervous I'll tinkle a tiny bit, but not often. 
I may be small but I have a gigantuous amount of love to offer. Are you looking for a little guy like me to snuggle, have fun playing and going for walks and a best friend forever? If so I'd love to become part of your family.
