KAMLOOPS - Chico is a sweet introverted dog staying at the Kamloops SPCA.

He is housetrained and knows some basic commands like sit, stay, and shake a paw, according to animal attendant Lyndsay Stewart in a media release.

This nine-year-old German shepherd cross is unsure of new situations and objects such as brushes and leashes. He is learning how to walk on a leash and doing well but can still get a little scared.

Chico needs to be introduced to new people and new situations slowly with positive reinforcement, Stewart says.

A quieter home would suit him best, and children may be too overwhelming.

His new guardians will need to be patient and spend a lot of time with him.

Chico loves playing with his squeaky stuffed toys.

He is eager to please and will make a loyal and loving companion.

For more information about Chico contact the staff at the Kamloops SPCA. His animal ID number is 455205.

Visit the shelter's webpage for more information such as location, adoption fees and hours of operation.
