New Foster Dog Paco

2 Weeks ago the rescue asked me to foster another dog and of course I said yes. I picked him up and he's adorable. He's supposed to be a chihuahua mix but he looks all chi to me. He's just at a year old. He's still on quarantine away from my dogs which is standard when a new dog comes into the house so I don't know how he'll do with mine. He doesn't like to be picked up but I think that's common among these tiny dogs. He's only 5 pounds. And he'd rather come to strangers than have them come to him. He was turned into the shelter because of housetraining issues but he hasn't had an accident in the house yet. He stays in the crate when I'm at work and does his business when I take him out for a walk. We've already had one inquiry on him and hopefully he'll get adopted quickly. Here's a couple of pics of him. He's yawning in one pic but it looks like he's laughing.

You can really tell in this pic how small she is! I think her ears are perfect!

OH my goodness he's adorable! Gee it sounds to me that he's housebroken,, many owners just aren't able to get up off their bums to take the pet out for a walk when it needs it, (regularly), that's a pity but sadly true. He is REALLY adorable... how old is he?

I agree Suzan! He's in the crate while I'm at work and he hasn't had an accident yet. They said he's over a year old but I think he might be younger than that. He's been teething a bit I think on his molars. I introduced him to my dogs last weekend and he and they did great.
