Looking for a refreshing blast of energy?

Look no further! This scrappy, smart, and pretty Chihuahua mix will knock your socks off!

Topo Chico is a high energy dog and an overall good boy. He is crate and potty trained, good with other dogs, and okay with kids (he's mostly experienced kids while leashed). Chico has not had much exposure with cats so slow introductions will be needed if you have any.

Topo Chico is an explorative and curious dog who loves to play around in the backyard. He's had more experience with a harness and leash than collar and leash so please be careful if you use a collar and leash.

Chico, while trapped in the body of a Chihuahua, really wants to be a Doberman guard dog. He barks relentlessly at people who pass by and small prey animals like squirrels or chipmunks. Hey it's not the size of the dog in the fight but the size of the fight in the dog!

Chico loves affection and will make a great addition to any family.

Something to Consider:

  • Puppies don't train themselves

    If you aren’t willing to train a puppy every single day, don’t get a puppy! It isn’t a one-shot deal. You have to be dedicated. And if you aren’t making progress – find someone who can help. Enroll in a puppy training class or hire a trainer. Most cities across the nation have some sort of availability for this kind of help and at different cost levels that would fit your budget.

     

    Puppies are going to poop a lot and pee even more; chew on everything; bite everyone; scratch people and furniture; steal things; destroy something at some point; pull on the leash; not move at all on the leash; bark; cry; beg for attention; and the list goes on. You’re going to have to walk them, bathe them, pick up everything below waist height, buy new shoes, and most importantly: TRAIN THE PUPPY NOT TO DO THESE THINGS! Ultimately, it is your responsibility to teach your puppy that this behavior is unacceptable.

  • Puppies turn into dogs...
