Hi, Nic Nac here. I am a 2-year old, 5-pound male chihuahua mix. I came into rescue from a house that had a lot of dogs and was not very well cared for. I am one of the lucky ones. I had no idea that people could be so nice or life could be so fun!

I am still learning to trust people and to walk well on a leash. I am doing ok with my housetraining. I would do best in a home with no children since sometimes I can get scared of things. It takes time for me to warm up to people so I really need that special home where everyone will be patient and give me the time that I need.

I ride well in a car but to be honest I would rather just stay home and play. I do think the cat at my foster home is a fascinating creature but for some reason foster mom does not want me to chase her. I am also a cuddle bug - if you sit on the couch, I will get myself right next to you and burrow under a blanket. I do love my dog friends and will play with them as long as they allow it. I am fast as the wind - foster mom says it's because of my super long legs! My forever home needs to have a fenced yard.

I have been neutered, microchipped, up-to-date on all vaccines, heartworm and flea preventatives. My adoption fee is $175.
