Pappy is a white and tan Chihuahua/Rat Terrier mix that weighs approximately 8 lbs from Texas. He was found abandoned in a kennel located in a vacant shop and brought into rescue. His less than stellar start hasn't dulled his little shine though! This pup is a lover <3. After a few days, when he decides that maybe you're not so bad after all, he will turn into your new best friend. Cuddles, kisses, playing chase.. all of it. the only thing he can't do is make you both matching friendship bracelets. If you think he might have all the qualities you're looking for in a new BFF, please fill out an adoption application today!
