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.

Bless, you, Greta, for taking in another foster on top of all the animals you are already caring for.

Thank you Gaye but to be honest, Paco is the best behaved foster I've had in a long time. If he thinks about chasing the chickens, I just call him and he comes running. He plays with Duncan for hours and he's just a really good little dog. All you have to do is tell him
