Meet Taquito, a very happy and energetic 7 year old boy from Mexico! He is a longer haired chihuahua mixed with some type of Terrier..he is absolutely adorable! While Taquito is estimated to be about 7..don’t let that fool you! His energy..spunk and personality almost makes you believe he is a puppy! Taquito has been enjoying his time with his foster family and loves playing with his doggy foster brother and endless amounts of squeaky toys! Taquito’s favorite toys include balls and lets face it..anything that squeaks. In addition, Taquito enjoys getting the zoomies, nap-time and long walks!

Taquito is a quick learner and his foster mom says he has been a pleasure to foster! Taquito loves to cuddle up on the couch and be with his people when he is not playing. He sleeps in bed with his foster family and does not make a peep the whole night! Taquito has been doing very well with potty training and only had a couple accidents while in foster care. He tends to mark his territory initially in new settings but with time will stop. Taquito has also been working on walking with a leash and with a little more practice, he will be a pro! Occasionally. Taquito may get spooked with loud/unfamiliar sounds while on walks so his forever family should be patient and understanding of this. His foster family has also been working with him on commands such as stay and come but will need more work in this category!

Taquito gets along great with his foster brother and every person he meets! He has also met a couple larger dogs and has not had any issues. Taquito would benefit from a home with another dog as he loves to play! Taquito would do great in an active home with people who have lots of love to give. He needs daily walks, socialization with other dogs, lots of love and play. He would make a wonderful addition to any home and would be a great adventure buddy!
