Canelo 2019-13549K

Canelo and his little companion, Chocolate Coco, were turned in to the shelter by their owner. Both are males, and both are in need of a lot of love, compassion, space, and understanding. They are terrified in the shelter, and, for now, at least, prefer not to be touched. Canelo seems to be the more traumatized and intimidated of the two. These little guys are chihuahua mixes. Canelo is about five years old and only weighs seven pounds. Because of their fear and confusion at being so suddenly placed in such a noisy, unfamiliar environment, they will need to be allowed a lot of time to adapt to a new home. A qualified foster or rescue could do these little guys a lot of good in transitioning and preparing for new homes. To apply for Canelo, go to, or call the shelter at (256)771-7889.
