Chihuahua Prancer is getting viral on social media
Due to the brutally honest description provided by the dog's foster owner of what potential adopters could anticipate from the dog, a tweet about a "demonic Chihuahua" named Prancer who is up for adoption has gone viral on Twitter.
Prancer's current foster owner Tyfanee Fortuna uploaded some pictures and videos of the two-year-old puppy to Facebook on April 7 in an effort to find a way to make the dog sound appealing to potential adoptive parents.
"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," wrote Tyfanee Fortuna in a now-viral Facebook post.
He has turned our house into a demonic Chihuahua hellscape, and we are trapped in it every day, she continued. "Chihuahua owners probably understand what I'm talking about. He embodies the Chihuahua meme that claims they are composed of 50% trembling and 50% hatred. Just wait—there's more—if the sound of this animal has already piqued your interest and horrified you.
Prancer arrived at Fortuna's house, who has worked with rescue animals ever since she was a young child, "obese, wearing a cashmere sweater, and with a bacon egg n cheese stuffed in his crate with him." According to buzzfeednews, Prancer's previous owner was moving into assisted living and their family was unsure of what to do with the unsocialized dog.
Fortuna stepped up because she is known for handling small, challenging animals.
He had a very solitary lifestyle. His first two weeks with me were filled with fear and his weight. She told BuzzFeed News that he had never consumed dog food in his life.
This occurred in November. Prancer has since been under Fortuna's care as she helps him lose weight and become accustomed to eating dog food.
But Prancer's peculiarities won't go away.
"Prancer quickly became attached to my mother. That would be his new human, he determined. The severity of his guarding issues with humans and other animals became apparent at this point, she said. He is aware of what is appropriate and inappropriate, but occasionally his rage takes control. It seems as though Jesus (or Satan?) is just driving in his mind.
Prancer has been Fortuna's child for six months, but he has never accepted her as his wife.
"If you have a husband don't bother applying, unless you hate him," she stated in her post.
Also prohibited are other animals.
Have other canines? Cats? If you don't like to be shaken up like a rag doll by a 13-pound rage machine, don't apply.
Kids? Don't even consider it.
He's never been around kids, but I can already picture the demonic screams and trembling fury that would come out of him. Prancer desires to be the only child you have.
The internet is enamored with little Prancer despite the fact that he seems so challenging on paper.
Fortuna's post became a popular Tweet that garnered a lot of support for Prancer.
Even though Fortuna spent a lot of time pointing out Prancer's hilarious flaws, she also took the time to mention some of his strengths.
He is unbelievably loyal, but I'll let you in on a little secret: His complex is really just a cover for his fear. I can assure you that if someone tried to kill you, he would flee screaming. However, as stated by Money.yahoo, you will never be lonely again in terms of company.
"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."
Since then, the post has received over 39,000 shares and over 22,000 likes.
Whether Prancer has already found his forever home as a result of his newfound fame is unknown, but Fortuna insisted in a post on Saturday that all the attention hasn't gone to his head.
In a post that included a photo gallery, she stated, "Prancer has no concept of fame."
The caption reads, "He does understand rotisserie chicken though," and one picture shows him lunging for a container of meat.

The Morris Plains, New Jersey-based Second Chance Pet Adoption League is accepting adoption applications for Prancer. Despite Fortuna's vivid description of Prancer, Stephanie Pearl, a representative for Second Chance Pet Adoption League, told TODAY via e-mail that they have received inquiries from people looking to adopt him all over the country after sharing Fortuna's post on their Facebook page. However, they are only accepting local applications so that the potential adopter can meet him and develop a connection.
There have been many kind and well-intentioned people who have asked questions, and she wrote, "We hope that every one of them goes to their local shelter or rescue and opens their home to a needy dog like Prancer... well, maybe not just like Prancer, but there are so many homeless dogs in need."
Second Chance Pet Adoption League, according to Pearl, focuses on "misunderstood little ones" with special housing needs because of their fears, lack of socialization and training, difficult pasts, and lack of socialization. Prancer is one of these dogs. She also advises people considering adding a new dog to their family not to overlook the "underdogs."
She wrote, "No matter what breed, size, age, or personality you are looking for, you can find your match in a shelter or rescue somewhere." And think about becoming a foster home! Only because his foster mom stepped in and saved him from being put down or taken to a shelter where his distinctive, um, "attitude," may not have been understood or appreciated, is Prancer still alive, loved, and now frighteningly famous.
Many people on social media were moved by Prancer's special personality; as a result, they have now become personally invested in his adoption journey and continue to think about him even after the post went viral.
One user tweeted, "I really hope prancer the chihuahua finds his forever home. I love you sweet devil prince."
