Please meet little Poncho! This little tri-colored chihuahua is around 2 years old and weighs 6 pounds, fully grown.
He is the BEST little cuddle bud, he loves to snuggle up in soft blankets and be a cozy bug-in-a-rug. Toys are his jam and he will do silly happy play bows to get your attention. He is so small and moves so quickly, these photos do not do him justice and you will just have to see in person that he is the most handsome boy ever.
Poncho previously lived with a family with children, they reported him to be sweet and well-behaved. He was not well-socialized with other dogs previously, though he currently has a couple of small dog roommates that he has been very good with. He would benefit from an active home that is willing to do dog training… small dogs need manners too!
Rocket Dog has decided that Poncho needs to be in a home with another dog.
Poncho has some typical small-dog behaviors that are entirely manageable but need an understanding person. He barks, and can be protective of his space. He needs to learn how to walk on a leash better, right now it’s kind of a new and funny concept to him! A little time and patience will go a long way for him, and we can’t wait to hear updates of him thriving with his new family.
If you would like to meet Poncho, please submit an application and a volunteer will be in touch. (KF)
