Facts about Chico

  • Breed: Chihuahua Mix
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 217355
Chico is small of stature but has a big personality. He is playful and friendly and is looking forward to learning the finer points of fetch (like returning the ball). Even though he looks like a lap dog, and indeed would probably love to snuggle in your lap, he would prefer to get there under his own power. If you pick him up he starts to shake and is more comfortable with four on the floor.

His needs are few: a short daily neighborhood stroll, some nutritious food to help him gain weight and quality time spent with his people. He enjoys playing with small, well-mannered dogs and has lived with several in the past. Larger dogs or ones with a forward approach will be corrected and then ignored, proper behavior in Chico's world.


Give dear little Chico half a chance and he will show you just why you want to take him home with you.
