This dog adoption video went viral on the Internet because her foster parents wrote an honest and hilarious description. They believe the dog is “Chucky doll in a dog’s body”
Ariel Davis, 36, from New Haven, Connecticut adopted a 2-year-old pooch after reading the post on Facebook.
We wanted to know what made Davis make up his mind, so we decided to interview him. He told us, “I had a dog that I adopted probably about seven years ago, and I raised him from a puppy, and he was a Chihuahua/Jack Russel terrier mix,” said Davis. “He had a lot of the same qualities as Prancer, he was a little neurotic and he barked a lot and he didn’t work well with other people and other animals. I spent a lot of time working with him and understanding his personality and learning about myself through him.”
Davis had to surrender her dogs due to his marijuana addiction. He was moved to the rehab center, so his dogs, Doodle, and her other dog, Blue were rehomed.
Now, after being three years sober, Ariel wanted to adopt another dog in her life so he made up his mind to welcome Prancer.
“Reading about Prancer brought back intense memories of the dog I still love so much,” she wrote in the email to the Second Chance Pet Adoption League. “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.”
She further added, “We got there and we just connected,” Davis told Hiptoro. “Prancer took pretty well to me. Eventually, I took Prancer for a walk and he wasn’t nipping at me or biting at my heels. We just got along. With my story and the fact that I didn’t come off as incredibly crazy just kind of meshed and everything seemed to go well. He went home with me that day. He was a perfect little gentleman in the car.”

“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.”
