Hunk is a priceless, 12-month-old chocolate brown/white Chihuahua. This ten-pound jewel of a dog loves to walk on a leash - and he does this very well. He will stay by your side and looks up at you as if to say: “I love these walks”. He gets along with other dogs; rides very well in a car and meets people with gusto. He will go right up to people and sit just waiting for attention. He knows how to sit and he looks people in the eye with affection and anticipation. He can jump up onto a couch and then he just wants to stay close to a human. He has a slightly chunky build, so he’s been given the name Hunk, but it actually fits him for another reason—he is a hunk of a joyful and loving dog. Most importantly he deserves to have a forever family that will love him for who he is.
