Description: 
I'm in a foster home UPDATE: 5-11-08 Through various blood testing, we have found Paco to have hypothyroidism. He will require a very inexpensive medication for the rest of his life. Hopefully, this will help Paco to lose some weight and become healthy and happy again! This condition is also what has affected his skin as stated below. Click this link for more information on hypothyroidism in dogs. Hello everyone! I'm Paco and I'm an extremely overweight 9yr old chihuahua. I am already neutered, microchipped and up to date on shots. My owner fed me way too many table scraps. I am a nice guy that needs some tender loving care. I need a stable diet and lots of exercise so I can be healthy again. I also have skin allergies and I'm now recieving treatment. I'm just the sweetest old man. Won't you love me forever? My Needs From You: Transition to home: I should transition easily Affection level: I love affection!!! Energy level: Low House Training: I know what to do but might have a few accidents Grooming needs: Low; 1x a week Reactivity: I’m interested in new things My Social Skills Sociability: I'm very friendly Children: I should be fine with older kids Cats: I like to lick cats Dogs: I like the other dogs in my foster home Playfulness:I don't really play at my age Fill out an application to adopt
