BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — Meet our Pet of the Week, 10-year-old chihuahua Nicky!

Nicky has a condition called alopecia, where his hair has fallen out, and is going blind. But don’t let his lack of fur get you down! This little dog is the happiest lap warmer. He has no idea he’s naked, and the condition isn’t complicated to care for. Just think of all the cute sweaters you can buy!

Nicky is kennel trained and house trained. He loves laps, blankets and anything soft, warm and fuzzy.

He gets along with other dogs but would be just as happy as a solo pup. Nicky is a graduate of the Pawsitive Change Program.
