'Demonic' Chihuahua finds a new home after post from foster owner

Woman who adopted a ‘demonic’ Chihuahua who went viral after a VERY honest ad dubbed him a man-hating, child-hating Gremlin’ says she’s the perfect owner for him as a single lesbian

  • Tyfanee Fortuna from New Jersey, went viral with a hilarious dog adoption call 
  • Was trying to re-home Prancer, a Chihuahua with anger issues who hates men
  • Said was ‘tired’ of dog who hated humans and animals alike and was ‘neurotic’
  • Prancer found home with Ariel Davis who says he’s given her a new lease of life

A woman who adopted a ‘demonic’ Chihuahua after reading an adoption advert describing him as a ‘man-hating, child-hating Gremlin’ says her new pet has given her a new lease of life.  

Ariel Davis, 36, from Connecticut, took in two-year-old Prancer after a post from his exhausted foster carer, Tyfanee Fortuna, from New Jersey, took social media by storm last month. 

The brutally-honest rant about his many negative traits – while desperately trying to find him a full-time owner – described the animal as ‘neurotic’ and accused him of creating a ‘Chihuahua hellscape’ in Tyfanee’s home. 

Appearing on This Morning today, Ariel revealed that while Prancer is ‘absolutely demonic’ and Tyfanee’s advert was ‘spot on’ in her description, her new pet has had a very positive impact on her life.

Two-year-old pooch Prancer took social media by storm earlier this month when his exhausted foster carer posted a brutally-honest rant about his many negative traits

The advert described the dog as a ‘man-hating, child-hating Gremlin’ who had created a  ‘Chihuahua hellscape’

‘It’s been very life-changing. He’s really done a lot to help get me out of the house,’ she said. ‘I was sedentary at the time, I went to work and came home. I was a homebody. Now that I have Prancer, I’m going on walks. 

‘I’m trying to find new ways of taking pictures of him. I’ve learned how to use Instagram which is not something I did before and he’s really helped me open up my social network.’ 

Ariel said she was attracted to other qualities described in the adoption advert such as ‘loyalty’ and felt that as a single lesbian who has no other pets, her home would be perfect for Prancer. 

‘When read the ad I was able to relate a lot to some of the characteristics he was described as,’ said Ariel.

‘I cared for a dog that was very similar to Prancer and Tyfanee did a really good job of describing some of his more demonic traits.’ 

‘I’m a single woman and a lesbian so there will be no men in my life for the foreseeable feature,’ she said. ‘I live with another female and no animals and have a job very inclusive of taking care of him.’ 

Tyfanee shared the happy news of Prancer’s adoption in a Facebook update last month, when she expressed her sheer relief at finally being free from the ‘demon’ dog, describing his adoption as the ‘one of the best days of her life’. 

‘Time flies when you’re having fun,’ the post reads. ‘Time also flies when the Chihuahua who held your family hostage for 6 months finally gets adopted. 

‘Prancer is almost a distant nightmare to me now, even though he was adopted just over a week ago. His adoption day was one of the best days of my life. On the flip side, I couldn’t help but feel a bit wrong….it was like expelling myself of a demon and passing it on to someone else.’ 

 Ariel is now documenting Prancer’s journey on Instagram, and she revealed that the pooch is slowly getting used to his new home 

Appearing on ITV today, Tyfanee said: ‘He bonded to me very quickly, but after the first week is when his personality started to come out. 

‘Once he became bonded to me he hated all of the other animals, he really hated my dad and was constantly barking, growling, nipping at ankles things like that.

‘For my dad and for my other animals, they could not go into a room without him losing his mind. He would make a lot of noise, I would have to be on top of him all the time. If my dad was there and I wasn’t around he would just go crazy.’ 

She said that Ariel is the perfect owner for Prancer, with several people replying to the advert without being prepared for the animals more difficult traits. 

‘A lot of people wanted him, thought they could change him and he would get along with their animals, said Tyfanee. 

In her original post, Tyfanee revealed Prancer was obese when she started fostering him and ‘was too terrified to have a personality’ 

She explained that Prancer was never socialised by his former owner and for this reason, dislikes children, men and other animals 

‘There were a lot of people, he is a really cute dog so was attracting a lot of the wrong candidates. She [Ariel] actually sent an application and paragraphs about her life and how she thought she would be a good fit for him.’ 

Ariel has been documenting Prancer’s early days in his new home on Instagram – where the viral pup has racked up more than 84.9k followers, although that pales in comparison to the 73,000 shares Tyfanee’s adoption posting currently has on Facebook. 

In that post, Tyfanee made no attempts to hide her dislike of Prancer’s many unpalatable personality traits, explaining that he was a ‘neurotic mess’ and joking that he may well be possessed by an evil spirit.  

‘Ok, I’ve tried. I’ve tried for the last several months to post this dog for adoption and make him sound…palatable. The problem is, he’s just not,’ Tyfanee started. ‘Every day we live in the grips of the demonic Chihuahua hellscape he has created in our home… 

‘If you’re intrigued and horrified at how this animal sounds already, just wait….there’s more.’ 

The foster owner said the animal was best-suited to live with a single woman, a mother-daughter duo or a lesbian couple 

In the hilarious post, Tyfanee called Prancer a ’13lb rage machine,’ and said he hard turned her home into a ‘Chihuahua hellscape’

Tyfanee then went into more details about Prancer and how he had ‘adapted’ to his life in her home. 

‘Prancer came to me obese, wearing a cashmere sweater, with a bacon egg n cheese stuffed in his crate with him. I should have known in that moment this dog would be a problem,’ she wrote. 

‘He was owned by an elderly woman who treated him like a human and never socialized him. Sprinkle in a little genetic predisposition for being nervous, and you’ve concocted a neurotic mess, AKA Prancer,’ she added. 

She said that during his first week at her house, Prancer was ‘too terrified to have a personality’ and laid silent, but turned out to be a force to be reckoned with.   

 ‘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,’ Tyfanee said.
