Everyone, meet Nugget. Mr. Nugget is a noble, loving young boy. He is a Chihuahua.
He goes nuts for stalking rabbits. He loves to play with old socks.
Although sometimes he flies into a panic whenever an alarm clock goes off, he is as totally committed a confidant as any canine could possibly be.
But one day, Nugget's beloved human grew too old to take proper care of him anymore. His human had no other choice than to put Nugget up for adoption.
The past doesn't matter to Nugget. He's ready to start a new life in a new home, right now! Nugget is a high energy dog. Nugget's unbelievable intelligence makes him the ultimate shopping partner. Some describe Nugget as a bit spoiled and he'll be best in a home where he can get lots of active playtime and tons of exercise.
He is 100% house broken.
Things You Should Know Before Adopting Nugget

There's a lot of Chi mix in this Shelter Pup!
Friendliness: Chihuahuas may look small and timid but these pups have confidence and attitude. They are proud, graceful, and dainty. The Chihuahua's favorite activity is being held by their favorite human. This pup may even do tricks to get your attention! Make sure you save plenty of time for your Chihuahua and never leave him alone for long periods of time.
Grooming: Chihuahuas can have long or short hair. Short haired Chihuahuas are low maintenance and only require an occasional grooming. Unlike many other long-haired breeds, long-haired Chihuahuas require no trimming and minimal grooming.
Health: Chihuahua are very healthy but also very tiny. Because they are so small it is important to help them stay safe -no jumping from high places or rough play with large dogs. Chihuahuas are also very sensitive to cold weather and should always be kept indoors.
Exercise: Chihuahuas may spend many lazy hours just laying around but they are still considered active dogs and require exercise. Because of their small size, simply running around your house gives them plenty of exercise!
Sorry, but Nugget was already adopted by an International Rescue Hero!
