Roco A1615446 is IN DANGER of EUTHANASIA at the North Central Shelter, please go DIRECTLY there to adopt!
Little Roco is FAR cuter than this photo reveals, and he has a complicated story as well. 6 years old and 16 pounds, Roco is a NEUTERED male, black and white Chihuahua, and he was SO HAPPY when we popped in for a visit. In fact, we worked hard to get him to hold still long enough to snap any photo that wasn't a blur of happy. But that's where the happy ends at this moment, and we'd like to turn his story around. Roco came to the shelter originally on 3/16/16 as an OWNER SURRENDER because his family said he didn't like company (they had him less than 6 months; we don't know where he was before that). He was then adopted on 3/16/16, yet was returned to the shelter hours later for 'nipping,' however the person who returned him didn't seem to be who adopted him, so he was put on a POSSIBLE OWNER hold while the shelter tried to reach the actual adopter. But no luck there. We would have hoped for smooth sailing after that, but little Roco fashions himself as a bit of an escape artist, at least as far as with an unfamiliar setting like the shelter. So when an adoring volunteer tried to return Roco to his kennel after a walk, he attempted a bolt, and when she tried to prevent him by grabbing him from behind, he bit. And at that moment he was required to become RESCUE ONLY. So, from what we know is that Roco can be very happy and loving. He can also be sensitive and unsure, which isn't surprising. At this point he must be pulled by a rescue group, and we sure are hoping that he will. Please share to rescues and offer to foster, if you can! This boy needs a hero! Roco has been at the shelter since March 31, 2016. Who can save him??
