This week’s MSPCA-Angell Pet of the Week is Chiki the dog.

Attention Chihuahua lovers! Chiki the “snuggly nugget” is currently holding fort at the MSPCA’s Boston adoption center but she’d much rather be standing guard in a loving forever home. This 4-year-old seven-pound gem is a snuggly “lap dog” and an ideal companion for those who love affectionate smaller dogs. She loves to hang with humans, walk outside on the grass and – most especially – loves having a window to look out of, so she can watch the world go by.

Chiki is in wonderful health and is already spayed.  She is also vaccinated and microchipped and ready for her new home!
