Taco is a tiny little chihuahua mix with a big, loving personality. He is about 7 months old, so still a baby. Weighing in at just 4.5 pounds, were trying to add just a little weight on his frame, but hes just go-go-go! This active little dude had a tough start in life, but he is outgoing, never met a stranger, and has a real zest for making new friends. We know hes going to make a wonderful addition to the right home.

Taco loves to play with toys and with other dogs. Another small, well-balanced, playful dog would be a great packmate for him. He would feed off a dog that has anxiety, so a calm dog is a must. Aside from puppy playtime, his human would need to understand that he needs lots of one-on-one attention and affection. Hes definitely on the needy/velcro side.

A secure yard is preferred, but not required. Any adopter would need to have an activity plan for him to get his energy out if there isnt a secure fenced area for daily play. He would be fine in a home with kids that are over 6 yrs old, and respectful of his tiny size.

Little Taco is bursting with potential, and needs adopters who will continue to work on his training and confidence as he grows into an adult dog. Hes being fostered near Pittsburgh, PA and will be ready for adoption at the beginning of October.
