Remember Prancer the Chihuahua who embodied not only a “haunted Victorian child” but also was described as a “Chucky doll in a dog’s body?” Well, he has found his forever home and has been adopted!

Prancer the chihuahua has found his forever home!

Ariel Davis, 36, from New Haven, Connecticut, was browsing Facebook when she came across Tyfanee Fortuna’s brutally honest and hilarious adoption ad for Prancer. While Davis found the listing amusing and thought Prancer was cute, it hit her that she really related to Prancer’s story.

Davis emailed the Second Chance Pet Adoption League to inquire whether or not Prancer had found his forever home and received a touching message back. In the email, which Davis shared with TODAY, she told her personal story, and why she connected with Prancer, who reminded her so much of her dog Doodle.


“Reading about Prancer brought back intense memories of the dog I still love so much,” she wrote in the email to the adoption center.

“They were very similar in demeanor and looking into Prancer’s eyes in those pictures I saw the little sh-t Doodle I love so much (I say this lovingly!)… I am not looking to replace Doodle, but I am looking for a companion that I can take proper care of and give a loving home.”

Davis felt as though she checked off all of the boxes for Prancer’s needs and requirements, explaining, “I’m a single woman, I’m a single lesbian, I live with another woman, I don’t have any men in my life, I work in a women’s rehab, I don’t have any other animals.

It just felt like a perfect match… and the rest is history.”

Prancer, who was said to have neurotic tendencies, has now been living in Davis’ home for over a week and is slowly but surely adjusting comfortably.

“He’s actually really great on walks,” she said. “I’ve walked by people, there’s been other animals that have been on the other side of the street, he just kind of ignores them… We’re one week into the adoption and he’s really changed my life, too.

We’re both adjusting.”
