Honesty first of all. To find a home for a dog that hates almost everything and everyone, a volunteer wrote a brutally honest and incredibly witty post that went viral against all odds.
Instead of highlighting his (few) positives to get him adopted faster, Tyfanee Fortuna was outspoken about what Prancer really is: a Chucky doll in a chihuahua’s body.
“Okay, I tried. I have long tried to make a post about this dog for adoption and make it look … palatable. The problem is, it just isn’t. There is no great demand for neurotics who hate humans, who hate animals, who hate everything dogs do and look like gremlins. But I have to believe that there is someone out there for Prancer, because I’m tired, and so is my family, ”wrote du Facebook Tyfanee, the volunteer who has stalled him for the past few months at her home in New Jersey.
Prancer, the & # 8220; demonic & # 8221; Chihuahua: this is how it unleashes
“Every day we live in the hands of the demonic hell that this chihuahua has created in our house. If you own a Chihuahua you probably know what I’m talking about. It is literally the Chihuahua meme that describes them as hate 50% and shiver for the remaining 50. If I intrigued or horrified you, wait … there’s more. Prancer came to me obese, wearing a cashmere sweater, with a bacon and cheese egg in the carrier. It was owned by an old woman who treated him like a human and never socialized him. Add a little genetic predisposition to nervousness and you found Prancer. ‘
“His first week he was too terrified to have a personality. As terrible as it sounds, I liked it more like that. He was quiet, he didn’t bother anyone. I was thrilled to see him come out of his shell and become a real dog. But now I am convinced that it never was ».
Prancer “only likes women. Nothing else. He hates men and if you have a husband don’t bother applying, unless you hate him: Prancer has been living with a man for 6 months and still hasn’t accepted him. Do you have other dogs? Cats? Don’t apply unless he likes to be tortured constantly. You know that episode of The Office where Michael Scott silently whispers ′ “I’ll kill you” to Toby? Here, this is Prancer. ‘
“As for the company, you’ll never be alone again. But if someone tried to kill you, I can guarantee you they would scream out. Her ideal home would be with a single woman, a mother and a daughter or a lesbian couple who don’t live in an apartment building, unless you want her to bite all the neighbors ‘ankles.’
Despite everything, the demonic chihuahua who hates the whole world has been very successful. The Second Chance Pet Adoption League has received hundreds of emails and adoption requests. However, not many people have continued to submit their questions so far. “It is important that his adopter meet and bond with him before taking him home. We have had many requests from people who seem to have wonderful homes for a dog but have other pets, men, children or an unfair environment … he would need a really knowledgeable person, “says Stephanie Pearl, president of Second Chance Pet Adoption. League of Morris Plains, New Jersey.
“Chihuahuas are the second most euthanized dog breed in US shelters after Pit Bulls, another horribly abused and misunderstood breed,” Stephanie continues. Their small size, like Hollywood, has made them popular and people dress and carry them around like stuffed animals, often not understanding that they need special training and emotional needs. ” And if all this is not respected they become “problematic like Prancer. Chihuahuas are not for everyone. But those who love and know them know that they can be hilarious companions of love ».
