OLM Pet of the Week- Meet Chico

This week's OLM Pet of the Week has the cutest set of ears we've ever seen! This week we want you to meet Chico, a 1-year-old potcake who is looking for a forever home with the help of Eastern Ontario Potcake Rescue. Chico was rescued from Roatan in pretty rough shape by a EOPR rescuer. He was extremely thin and covered in sores. Thanks to the hard work of the Roatan Animal Shelter, Chico has made a full recovery and officially moved to Canada after a month in their care. 

Today, Chico is full of life and extremely energetic! He would especially make an awesome edition for an active family. He has mastered canine agility and would love to be able to continue honing this talent with his future adoptive family! He is a very fast learner and has been picking up new tricks quickly in his foster home. Chico is neutered and up to date on his vaccinations. He is good with other dogs, and dog-savy cats and is also house-trained and crate trained. 

If Chico sounds like the right fit for your home, you can email Eastern Ontario Potcake Rescue at saveapotcake@gmail.com for an adoption application.
