NACHO was saved from Texas where most dogs in the kill shelters have 3 days to be saved before they are killed. NACHO is neutered, rabies, core vaccines, de-wormed, heart-worm and tick disease (SNAP 4DX) tested negative and micro-chipped. He has been estimated date of birth of 4 July 2016 and weighs around 9 pounds.
NACHO is a very sweet, affectionate young boy. He is very responsive and as much as he will do all he can to either get on my knee, the chair arm, or top of the chair, if I tell him no, he will go and hang out with the other small dogs and be content.
NACHO is a confident little pup with absolutely no intimidation of being around the big dogs, he is happy to play with them, lie among them or climb over them. He loves to run and chase when we are outside and enjoys exploring the different smells in the garden. We do NOT have CATS at the rescue so are not in a position to comment on how he would be around them.
I do have puppy-pads in the house as the dog doors installed are the XL, double flapped doors and some small dogs cannot open them. NACHO does use the puppy-pads and I am sure if able to get out when he needed to, would be very easy to house-train. He is a very responsive boy. He would love to go wherever his family goes and is great in the car.
NACHO would benefit from a family that is familiar with the toy/small breed dog, who understands their needs and potential medical issues as they get older and be in a position to ensure they get all that they need to live a long, happy, loved, safe, healthy life.He would need a family that has time to spend working with him on basic and advanced obedience training. Working with him as a family so both NACHO and his humans can learn each other's body language, expectations and boundaries. Small dogs do tend to have teeth issues so it is almost a guarantee that they will need dental care throughout their life. This is not an inexpensive treatment.
We currently feed SPORTMIX Wholesomes Chicken Meal & Rice Formula, a 4* (a per www.dogfoodadvisor.com) GRAIN FREE food along with pro-bioitics and immune support supplements listed on the available dogs page!

NACHO is located at the rescue in Sebec, Maine. We post in various states along the east coast and Canada where we have had lots of successful adoptions to enable more exposure for these beautiful saved souls. Families will need to be prepared to travel to the rescue to meet and take home their new best friend. There is a local hotel in Dover-Foxcroft that is pet-friendly (approx 6 miles) and several in Bangor (approx 45 miles). There are also lots of wonderful camp-sites for the more adventurous families and what a great way to get to know your new best friend. If there are options to arrange transport, we will work with you to make it happen.
