Prancer’s adoption ad went viral when his foster parents honestly described this adorable canine. The chihuahua was called a “Chucky doll in a dog’s body.” Well, he has now found his forever home.
Ariel Davis came across the parents hilarious but brutally honest adoption ad for Pancer. She found the ad amusing and loved Pancer immediately. Additionally, she really related to the dog’s story.
“I had a dog that I adopted probably about seven years ago and I raised him from a puppy and he was a Chihuahua/Jack Russel Terrier mix,” she told TODAY.
“He had a lot of the same qualities as Prancer, he was a little neurotic and he barked a lot and he didn’t work well with other people and other animals. I spent a lot of time working with him and understanding his personality and learning about myself through him.”
And so, Ariel Davis reached out to ‘Second Chance Pet Adoption League.’
“Reading about Prancer, the chihuahua brought back intense memories of the dog I still love so much,” she wrote in the email to the Second Chance Pet Adoption League.
“They were very similar in demeanor, and looking into Prancer’s eyes in those pictures, I saw the little sh-t Doodle I love so much (I say this lovingly!)… I am not looking to replace Doodle, but I am looking for a companion that I can take proper care of and give a loving home.”
And soon, she traveled to New Jersey to meet Prancer, his foster parent Fortuna, and an employee of the adoption center.
“We got there and we just connected. Prancer took pretty well to me. Eventually, I took Prancer for a walk and he wasn’t nipping at me or biting at my heels. We just got along. With my story and the fact that I didn’t come off as incredibly crazy just kind of meshed and everything seemed to go well. He went home with me that day. He was a perfect little gentleman in the car.”
Prancer has been living in Davis’ home for over a week and is adjusting there comfortably.
