Hi, I’m Taco! I know what you’re thinking… creative name for a Chihuahua, right? But if you give me a chance, you’ll see I’m a really special boy!
I’m super easy-going and affectionate. I’d love to be your “go anywhere” pup. I walk easy on the leash and enjoy going outside. Being held is super nice too. Pretty easy considering I’m less than 10lbs. And if you just want to hang out inside some days (after a walk, of course), I won’t complain about that either–I’ll curl up right next to you on the couch. I love sleeping under the covers so you better be ready to snuggle! If you have other dogs, or even cats, I’m totally fine with that too! And my foster mom describes me as a “minimal barker” meaning I might tell you if someone is at the door, but besides that, I’m quiet.
I’m a young boy at only a few years old. It’s been sort of a rough time up until Rocket Dog saved me. I was living somewhere with a lot of other dogs, and no one was really taking care of us. Despite all that, I’m remarkably well-adjusted to comfortable home life. My foster mom says I’m the easiest pup she’s ever fostered. I’m house-trained and don’t mind being left alone if you need to leave for a few hours. I’m learning how to play (this is new to me!) and have discovered that I love chew toys and doing zoomies when I’m really happy! Sometimes large groups of people overwhelm me but if you’re patient I’m sure we can overcome that minor obstacle.
Not to brag, but I’m a pretty amazing dog. I’d love to be part of your family! Fill out an application and a Rocket Dog volunteer will be in touch soon (AS).
