Plenty of Pets

Chico is a two-year-old Chihuahua who needs a child-free home.

Chico is a little timid around new people but is great with other dogs and cats.

He is housetrained, provided he receives frequent outdoor bathroom trips, and is both leash and crate trained. He suffers from some separation anxiety and will bark and whine when left alone, so a home where someone is home much of the time would be best.

He enjoys cuddling with his people and exploring the outdoors.

Chico weighs about nine pounds and is neutered, vaccinated, treated for parasites, and microchipped. He comes with 30-days of free pet insurance courtesy of 24PetWatch. His adoption fee is $400.

If you’re interested in having Chico join your family, , visit Coastal K9 Rescue Society’s website or Facebook page or email info@coastalk9.ca
