Paco (and his buddy Red) was dumped in a field. There were lots of farm animals and fortunately he did not get hurt. Why anyone would dump these tiny dogs (or any dogs), anywhere is beyond understanding. His foster mom says that Paco loves attention, is very loving and will follow his people around everywhere. He also loves to snuggle and give kisses. He is doing great in his foster home with the other two family dogs. His foster mom says he has a great disposition!! He's very also agile and can jump on your lap from the floor and runs up and down stairs. He now sleeps right in between his foster parents under the covers. He also has a cute trick he does where he jumps up on his back legs and clasp his front legs together like he is clapping or maybe praying. Perhaps he entertained the farm animals with his antics? He does bark at strangers that come into the home not unusual for his breed but we think with time and some training he may get out of that.
