Meet Chico Chi

UPDATE dated May 14-2015: Chico Chi is now being fostered and trained by one of our professional canine educators. The bio below was written shortly after his arrival.

Chico Chi is a 7 year old, neutered male Chihuahua. He is a featherweight at just 5 pounds. Chico is a mama’s boy. If you want a dog glued to your every step, Chico is it! He loooooooves to cuddle; the more cuddle time, the better.

Chico feels like he has to guard the house, the yard and his favorite human so he will bark-bark-bark at every strange people, sound or movement. He is not fond of strangers and takes his time to assess a person to decide whether he likes them or not. Despite his barking, Chico has yet to show true aggressiveness. He’s a barker, not a biter.

With that sweet face, those soulful eyes and that little tongue sticking out, Chico is infinitely endearing and will make you forget instantly his little faults.

He is pipipad-trained but will do his business outside if it’s available to him. Keep a pad out at all times any which way.

Chico walks well on the leash and should have daily walks, weather permitting. He loves to sniff around but won’t let his human get out of range, he’ll stick close.

He has a good appetite but is a bit finicky.

He has gotten used to sleeping in a cage. He might whine a little but will eventually settle in until morning.

Chico is very small and cute. The danger is to over-protect him, doll him up and indulge his every whim. He needs to be treated just like any other dog, keeping in mind his size and needs. Very small dogs like Chico will lose body heat very fast so keeping them warm is important. Feeding them the proper amount of a healthy diet is essential. Tight schedule on regular feeding will ensure that he doesn’t go into hypoglycemia and develop diabetes in his older years. Small bones break easily, his future guardian must be aware.

Socializing Chico will go a long way for leveling his insecurities. Small or boisterous children will stress him quite a bit. He’ll bark at cats from afar but won’t chase them.

Chico is a sweet boy with innocence stamped on his sweet face. He needs to remember that he is a dog, not a child. He needs a firm but extremely gentle hand to guide him through his new life.
