More about Nacho

Nacho is the cutest seven-pound chihuahua! This little bundle of energy is still a pup, so the first word in his vocabulary is PLAY. Ready for a game of toss the toy? Nacho is your man. Also content to simply snuggle and love whenever necessary.

Nacho`s foster family noted how he beams with pride as he prances around the backyard scoping the perimeter. He will bark and give a little howl of joy announcing visitors or to just simply to share his happiness with you. Nacho loves other dogs, big or small, and children. This smart boy is learning more everyday and working on walking with a leash and housebreaking.

He would make a great addition to a loving family.
