PEEKSKILL, N.Y. -- Chico the Chihuahua, a 3-year-old toy-size dog, is looking for a new home, according to Lost Pets of Westchester. Chico currently lives in Peekskill/Cortlandt Manor, where he's being fostered.
He was rescued from a basement in Philadelphia, where he was fed and watered but pretty much neglected otherwise.
Chico has all of his shots, and he's housetrained. He comes with a crate. He's a good boy and loves human attention and enjoys playing with other dogs, but then he's a bit afraid when they reciprocate.
He's a toy-sized dog, so he's careful to not get stepped on. His foster family described Chico as superlovable with a great personality.
Chico has a little bed he sleeps in next to the big bed and he curls up into a ball.
The adoption fee is $200 and Lost Pets of Westchester would want to check out the house before letting him go. If interested, call John Daniele at 914-325-1808.
