MEET NACHO….adorable, delicious and too much fun!  Nacho is just a puppy at 10 mos old, mostly cream/tan colored, 10 lbs and a Shih Tzu Chihuahua.  He came from a home that had unaltered dogs and he was a product of a Shih Tzu hookup!  We rarely get dogs as sweet, kind and happy as Nacho (formerly Chato)…he is one of the most affectionate dogs ever!  He is so sensitive — when I was having a bad day, he kissed my tears and wanted to make sure I was okay!  

When Nacho arrived, he didn’t walk on a leash and he was shut down, but cuddled with us on the way home.  He took his big sigh and knew he was safe and loved.  He now walks on a leash, goes up and down the stairs and is very smart!  He stays when you say “stay” and we are still working on sit!  He is doing well with his potty training (even though the previous owners said he was trained, not 100%).  He is a work in progress, after all he is just a puppy (we never guarantee anyway!)  He loves to play with his person and has lots of energy.  He even loves playing with his foster buddy who has a broken leg, but his “cone” gets in the way!  He would be great with, and we welcome, kids over 8 yrs old.   He doesn’t like to be left alone, and he will bark until he settles down.  He has finally learned what toys are and he loves them!  His ideal home would be one where there is another small, happy, playful dog.  Nacho is a very special guy and we want him to go to a very special home!  Is that you?  SoCA placement only.

Hooray! This dog has been adopted!
