Good news: Prancer has been adopted.

The two-year-old, 13-pound Chihuahua mutt not-so-charitably described as "a chucky doll in a dog's body" was listed for an adoption earlier this month in an unusually honest ad that charmed hundreds of thousands of people on social media.

Now, Prancer the "haunted Victorian child in the body of a small dog that hates men and children" has found a home with Ariel Davis, a 36-year-old resident of New Haven, Conn. She brought Prancer home last week, according to his newly created Instagram account.

"I read the article, I connected to it, and I was like you know what, why not? I'll just send them an email. What's the worst that could happen?" Davis said in an interview with Today.

While rescue dog ads can be notorious for euphemisms about problematic behaviors, Prancer's viral listing did not sugarcoat his shortcomings, of which there are many: He hates men. He hates children. He hates dogs. He hates cats. He is nervous and fearful and poorly socialized.
