Normally, if someone puts a rescued animal up for adoption, they tend to list all its positive characteristics to make it attractive to potential adoptive owners, sometimes they even exaggerate those positive characteristics.
That would be normal and even expected. They would tell us a story that makes us feel empathy and tenderness for an animal that we would later let into our home and would become part of the family.
Recently, one post about a dog for adoption went viral, but for exactly the opposite reasons.
Tyfanee Fortuna is serving as a temporary foster home for a little Chihuahua named Prancer and after several months of attempts to find a permanent home for the animal, it appears that she just gave up and stopped trying to sell the idea from a positive approach.
She took to social media to express herself as honestly as she could about the dog in what appears to be one last desperate attempt.
She decided to come clean and talk about this dog not as mean, but directly demonic, confirming the meme that describes Chihuahuas’ anatomy as 50% shaking and 50% hatred.
“I’ve tried for the last several months to post this dog for adoption and make him sound… palatable. The problem is, he’s just not. There’s not a very big market for neurotic, man-hating, animal-hating, children-hating dogs that look like gremlins. But I have to believe there’s someone out there for Prancer because I am tired and so is my family. Every day we live in the grips of the demonic Chihuahua hellscape he has created in our home,” Fortuna said in a post on Facebook that she accompanied with some photos and videos of this animal.
Fortuna went on to describe her relationship with the dog and indicated that when it came to her, it was clear that it had been too spoiled by its previous owner, a very old lady, who never made it socialize, and that is probably the reason for its bad behavior.
Despite such a brutal description and to Fortuna’s surprise, many people wrote interested in giving Prancer a home.
Perhaps they were convinced by the few positive things that Fortuna described in her post like “He likes to go for car rides, he is housebroken, he knows a few basic commands, he is quiet and non-destructive when left alone at home, and even though we call him bologna face he is kind of cute to look at. He also ‘smiles’ when he is excited.”
The recent fame acquired on the internet by this Chihuahua might as well be his one-way ticket to the home of someone who feels sorry for him and wants to adopt him. We hope they make it and maybe he can change his attitude and be a little bit happier.
