Pet of the Week – Macho

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

Macho is a Chihuahua that is about a year old.

He's small, just over 6 pounds. Macho is a friendly and affectionate little dude,  who loves people.

His owner passed away, and was discovered a couple of days later. Macho was alone with his person fordays before police arrived and rescued him. He was rescued from a local, urban pound environment, where he was surrounded by big unruly dogs, and he was doing terribly there.

Macho hates big dogs (probably due to being in the pound), and more inclined to get along with smaller ones.

He is sweet and affectionate, but still very puppy-like, with lots of energy, and still a bit mouthy; and loves playing with toys

Macho  loves to wrestle with stuffed animals his own size and would do fine with older kids who can help with training and understand the mouthy behavior.
