Dogs of the Week: Chico and Cisco

Julia D Dog of the Week

Meet Chico and Cisco! These bonded brothers are looking for a home together, so if you are ready for double the love and cuddles, these are the pups for you! They are both around 4 years old and believed to be dachshund/chihuahua mixes. Chico (black and tan) and Cisco (tan) love attention! They haven’t been around many children yet, but we are certain they would do just fine in a home with dog savvy children, especially if they wanted to be their cuddle buddies at night!

Both boys need to be kept on a low-fat diet, they would each benefit from losing a little weight and while they aren’t necessarily built for long walks they will enjoy shorter walks with you!  The boys also do well kenneling together, so while they enjoy being with people the most, they will tolerate you being gone for a standard workday (up to 8 hours). Chico and Cisco have lived with other small dogs and did great.  They have not met any cats yet, we’re guessing they may bark at a cat initially but could warm up nicely. A fenced-in yard is required, although they walk well on a leash together they will do best with a safe and enclosed yard to explore and burn off extra energy.

The adoption fee for the pair is $450 and includes neuter surgery, being up to date on vaccinations and preventives, a microchip with free lifetime registration, and a free obedience class.

If you think this adorable pair would fit into your home and family, please complete an adoption application HERE.
