Prancer, the 'Demonic Chihuahua,', 'rage machine' Finds a Home

https://www.nytimes.com/2021/04/28/us/prancer-chihuahua-adopted-connecticut.html?action=click&module=In%20Other%20News&pgtype=HomepagePrancer, the ‘Demonic Chihuahua,’ Finds a Home
An adoption ad said he was “literally the Chihuahua meme that describes them as being 50% hate and 50% tremble.” Undeterred, a Connecticut woman has adopted him.


seemed hard to believe that a tiny Chihuahua described as a “man hating, animal hating, children hating” dog, a 13-pound “rage machine” and the “vessel for a traumatized Victorian child” could find a home.

But he has.

Weeks after the Second Chance Pet Adoption League in Oak Ridge, N.J., posted an adoption ad describing him that way, Prancer the dog was taking a morning walk on Wednesday on a downtown street in Connecticut.

At the other end of the leash was Ariel Davis, 36, who refers to herself as “mom or owner” after she adopted Prancer on April 17 and took him to New Haven, where she lives with a female roommate in an apartment with a backyard and no other pets. Or children. Or men.


Ms. Davis was one of the hundreds of thousands of people who read, shared and retweeted the advertisement, written by a volunteer who was fostering him.


Now, Prancer has his own Instagram account with more than 50,000 followers on Wednesday. His photo collection shows him clearly living his best life. He wears a bow tie, cuddles on blankets, has a wardrobe that includes at least one collared shirt, takes car rides and trips to McDonald’s and commands attention in the middle of a room, appearing, of course, like a very good, and only mildly demonic, boy.

1. Oh, bless the people who are willing to take on "only mildly demonic boys."

This was a lovely story. Thanks.
