Meet Sweet Chico
Chico, an affectionate male puppy who was born with very gentle nature. He is a little shy to meet strangers but very cuddly and sweet after a few minutes to warm up. Chico is well housebroken on a potty pad. He is quiet when you ask him to. If you are busy with something that forget to call him for cuddles, don’t worry, he will initially come to you for snuggles.
Chico and his siblings were abandoned at a crowded public shelter, jammed in a kennel when they were only 8 weeks young. Due to there were too many dogs fighting for limited food, poor Chico and her siblings had no chance to get closer to the bowl. They were starving from time to time. One late night, a nurse just got off shift; she got on Facebook and spotted an SOS post of these poor pups. The image of the little, skinny puppies made her very sad. Without any rescue experience, she started to call everyone she knew to find a way to help these puppies. Unfortunately, most of rescuers got full hand of dogs. Instead giving up, the nurse went to the shelter, claimed the full litter of puppies out. Not surprised, all these pups had been starved for too long that must take quite much medical and nutritious care to help them became healthy. When AHAN got a call from a rescuer to help these puppies, we actually were impressed of the bravery of the angel nurse. She isn’t rich, but insisted to take all the pups to the best animal hospital for the best medical care. It took quite a while for all the pups to get full recovery. Under Vet’s intensive care. Chico turns into a healthy puppy.
Sweet Chico is affectionate. He will let you know how much he loves you by coming to you for sweet kisses when you are too busy to ignore him. Chico gets along well with dogs and children. Though he is a little shy to meet strangers in the beginning, but warms up quickly for nice pets. Chico is a sidekick. He is a little anxious if being left alone. He responds to recall and can quietly playing favorite toys when you are busy. A good doggie like Chico is now waiting for the destined family to take him home.
