Meet Chicharito, the pet of the week, an adorable 4-year-old dog looking for a loving home at the Wisconsin Humane Society Racine Campus. This sweet boy loves walks, yummy treats, and a cozy place to sleep. Chicharito is a bit uncomfortable around small children, so he is looking for a home without kids under 8. If you think Chicharito might be the dog for you, please stop by the WHS Racine Campus today!

Like all dogs at the Wisconsin Humane Society, Chicarito has been neutered, micro-chipped, and vaccinated. Plus he goes home with a certificate for a free vet exam, a starter bag of dog food, and a lifetime of behavior support. Could Chicarito be your perfect match? Stop by the Wisconsin Humane Society Racine Campus today to find out.
