Taco is 6 year old, 6 pound male Chihuahua that was an owner surrender when she was transferred by the military.  Taco did not have a very good life.  He was kept in a kennel for around 18 hours a day.  Consequently, Taco is not social with new people, but is very loving and loyal with people he learns to trust.  He is housebroken and will sleep in a kennel at night.  We do not put him in a kennel during the day, but leave a door open if he chooses to go in one.  He is distrusting of strangers and will definitely alert you if someone comes to the house.  He walks well on a leash and enjoys outings. He does very well with other dogs, cats are unknown.  NO CHILDREN PLEASE.  Taco will need an owner that is very patient and not try to force him to love them.  He needs time and patience.  You will be greatly rewarded if you allow him to warm up to you, on his time line.  Taco is microchipped, heartworm negative, vaccinations up to date and neutered.  His adoption fee is $150.  If you would like to meet him, please submit an application from
