Paco the Chihuahua



A sturdy year old tan and white
Love Bug Extreme
Ferocious protector of the house
Great with other dogs

Annoys the cats

Probably not ideal for a home with small children

Explorer of the Great 100 Acre:  No Fear!
Fenced in yard would be desired because despite what Paco thinks, and we have not had the heart to tell him, paco_march_10_2010 there really are things out there that will do him in!

Paco sleeps in bed with us at night, he prefers to sleep snuggled under the covers.  And he is not a morning creature, but prefers those lazy, “let’s pretend it’s a Saturday and sleep in” mornings!

He will bark at things that go bump in the night, new noises, and cars that drive up the driveway.


“Money will buy you a pretty good dog, but it won’t buy the wag of his tail..”   Henry Wheeler Shaw

paco2_feb_9_2010He is ok once he knows someone but he is quite capable of nipping someone he doesn’t know.

Paco would be best with an owner who understands Chihuahua’s and knows how to handle him.  With the right person or people, Paco is an absolute doll, however, he is not a candidate for Pet Therapy!
He would be great for someone who wants a great pet to be a companion, a person who doesn’t feel the urge to take their dog to the local dog park, a person who is content to be with Paco at home or for walks around the neighborhood.

Paco will share a dog crate with another dog but usually we just leave him loose.  He will lift a leg off and on but that happens only when I bring home a new foster.  He is getting better – and maybe he is taking serious my threats to cut off his legs if he doesn’t stop lifting them!!
He is fine with big dogs, puppies and enjoys other small dogs .. like Mojo and Dapper Dan.
His all out favorite place to be is cuddled in a lap.
