This adorable little guy is Solo, a chihuahua that is almost 2 1/2 years old. Can you believe that this tiny little guy was found as a stray, running the streets of Newark all alone? How sad that someone let him go, but he is in good hands now and we just love our little Solo. He is an outgoing little boy with lots of personality and energy. Solo loves people and is very outgoing, and makes friends easily. He is very well-behaved and walks well on a leash, and is very gentle too. Solo tends to be a little shy upon meeting people, as most chihuahuas are, but warms up very quickly to everyone and just wants to be loved and cuddled. This is the perfect little boy for you chihuahua lovers out there, so please come on in and meet your new friend. He'll be waiting......smiling from ear to ear and tail a waggin'! 11/21/12 File#22077
