Chico is a -year-old chihuahua who weighs approximately six pounds. He is such a sweet boy, and his tail is always wagging! He is grateful for any kindness and a warm bed. One of his favorite activities is sitting next to his foster dad in the garden. He is not vocal, and would be a perfect apartment dog or as a companion for a retired individual. This handsome boy previously had his left eye removed, most likely due to trauma.
