A “man-hating, children-hating, neurotic, demonic” Chihuahua whose hilarious adoption ad went viral has found a forever home with a kind-hearted lesbian mum.
Earlier this month, New Jersey animal carer Tyfanee Fortuna shared the brutally honest description of Prancer in the viral ad.
Fortuna explained it was impossible to make the “demonic” and “neurotic” dog sound “palatable” because he’s a “gremlin” and a “Chucky doll in a dog’s body”.
“Every day we live in the grips of the demonic Chihuahua hellscape he has created in our home,” she wrote.
But Prancer has found a home with Connecticut woman Ariel Davis, who took the dog home with her this week.
She said she fell in love with Prancer because he had a “lot of the same qualities” as another dog she adopted years earlier.
“I had a dog that I adopted probably about seven years ago and I raised him from a puppy. He was a Chihuahua/Jack Russel Terrier mix,” she told TODAY.
“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.”
Sadly a few years back, Davis had to say goodbye to her two dogs when she went to rehab for marijuana addiction.
The dogs, Doodle and Blue, were re-homed during the two years she couldn’t care for them. Ariel said she’s been clean for nearly three years.
“I’ve come to the point in my life where I’m stable enough to now have dogs again,” she said.
“I read the article, I connected to it, and I was like you know what, why not? I’ll just send them an email. What’s the worst that could happen?”
Prancer now has his own Instagram account
Ariel Davis travelled from Connecticut to New Jersey to meet Prancer, and said they “just connected”.
“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,” she said.
“He went home with me that day. He was a perfect little gentleman in the car.”
Davis said she checked off all of the boxes for Prancer’s needs and requirements.
“I’m a single woman, I’m a single lesbian, I live with another woman, I don’t have any men in my life,” she said.
“I work in a women’s rehab, I don’t have any other animals. It just felt like a perfect match… and the rest is history.”
Davis has started an Instagram account for Prancer, who has 66,000 followers already.

Demonic chihuahua Prancer’s hilarious adoption ad goes viral
Prancer’s foster owner Tyfanee Fortuna took to Facebook earlier this month with the brutally honest and hilarious adoption ad that went viral.
“I’ve tried for the last several months to post this dog for adoption and make him sound… palatable,” Fortuna wrote.
“The problem is, he’s just not. There’s not a very big market for neurotic, man hating, animal hating, children hating dogs that look like gremlins.
“But I have to believe there’s someone out there for Prancer, because I am tired and so is my family.
“Every day we live in the grips of the demonic Chihuahua hellscape he has created in our home.”
She explained Prancer was a “Chucky doll in a dog’s body” and embodied the “Chihuahua meme that describes them as being 50% hate and 50% tremble.”
Prancer’s previous owner was an elderly woman who “didn’t socialize him.”
“Sprinkle in a little genetic predisposition for being nervous, and you’ve concocted a neurotic mess, AKA Prancer,” she wrote.
“I am convinced at this point he is not a real dog, but more like a vessel for a traumatized Victorian child that now haunts our home,” she said.
“We also mentioned no kids for Prancer. I think at this point, you can imagine why.
““He’s never been in the presence of a child, but I can already imagine the demonic noises and shaking fury that would erupt from his body if he was. Prancer wants to be your only child.”
Fortuna later said she was thrilled too see Prancer adopted and “can’t thank the internet enough for embracing him as he is.”
