Bakersfield, Calif. (KGET) — Meet this week’s Pet of the Week, Diego!

Diego is a two-month old Chihuahua short coat mix pup. Because of his size and short coat, Diego is kept in a separate indoor room to keep him warm. The only way to see Diego is on their website or by scheduling an appointment to meet the little guy in person, according to Kristen White.

White said Diego doesn’t walk, he prances. He also likes to hop when excited. Diego stands less than a foot tall and won’t grow much bigger.
