Hi! My name is Canelo. I'm your typical spicy chihuahua, who loves attention! My foster mom says that I hate everyone I meet for about fifteen minutes to half an hour, but I just need to get a few barks and growls out of the way before I become your best friend! Once I am acquainted with you, I LOVE to give you all the kisses and curl up in your lap for pets. I am great on the leash, enjoy walks, and will stand by the door or make noise to let you know I need to go out. I love treats and my food, so I can be a little protective of those right away. If you're looking for a pup to spice up your life, keep you entertained with goofy antics and bossiness, and cuddle with you all night long then I am your guy! I seem to like dogs my size but may need time to warm up to big dogs. As with people, I am pretty sassy with other dogs at first so slow intros are necessary!
An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal.
