Our Lucky is one adorable pipsqueak, with a BIG personality. He is one of the most jovial canine characters that we've met in sometime. Our collective mind boggles at yet another beautiful, sweet, young dog, who has been abandoned by owners to NYCACC. We feel like Fantasia's Mickey Mouse, as the "Sorcerer's Apprentice" awash in just one more bucket of water.

Lucky is rare soul who survived the NYCACC brouhaha without completely losing his mind. Lucky sailed through the Shelter Intake process, charming shelter staff and volunteers, and finally, we were called in on his behalf, so that he could have space to unwind and decompress before adoption. We are thrilled that Lucky is with us, and he has blended beautifully into his new foster home, quickly adapting to house rules.

Lucky is a two year old, adult Chihuahua, who quite resembles the breed standard. There's no mistaking the Chi Apple head, short legs, and squat physique. His personality is extremely gregarious for a Chihuahua, and Lucky truly is one of the friendliest Chis we've met! At 7 pounds, he is a tiny boy, with a lean, athletic physique built for the Peewee high jump. He would be a great choice for an experienced Chihuahua lover who relishes the creative, comical hijinks that this whimsical breed is famous for.

Lucky would do well in the active home of a single or couple who have the time to focus on the transition of a displaced rescue dog. He could also join a busy family lifestyle, where he could flounce around as the center of attention. Lucky loves human contact, but may become nervous around toddlers. He would enjoy the gentle attention of older kids or teens, and would fit in nicely in a multi-dog home. Lucky might be fine around cats, but a cat-dog introduction would be necessary before any decision is made.

Lucky has excellent house manners and is house trained, and crate trained. He is also accustomed to using wee wee pads. Adopters should expect to forgive the occasional accident as Lucky adapts to his new potty routine. He travels well, and is an ideal car passenger. He is small enough to fit into the airline approved Sherpa bag, and would be a great companion on plane trips.

Lucky appears to be well cared for: his skin and coat are soft and lustrous, and his teeth and gums are in good shape for an adult dog. A consistent dental care plan will go a long way to avoid future dental cleanings and extractions. Lucky is in excellent health and has been neutered. He has been vaccinated for rabies, DHLPPC (distemper, hepatitis, leptospirosis, parvo, parainfluenza and coronavirus). He has had the 4dx test, and is negative for heartworm, lyme, earlichia and anaplasmosis. He has been dewormed.
