I was raised to believe in the idea that "Honesty is the best policy."

I'm guessing Tyfanee Fortuna was raised with similar ideals.

I say that because the young lady is attempting to find a new home for her young dog, and she's not hiding anything. She calls her dog, Prancer,  a "neurotic, man hating, animal hating, children hating dog" that "looks like a gremlin."

Who wouldn't want one of those curled up on the bottom of their bed?

I first came across Fortuna's story after it was shared on a local private Egg Harbor Township Facebook group. I thought she was from EHT, but it turns out she's from the Clinton, New Jersey area, and her story is being shared, well, everywhere!

I communicated with Fortuna over the weekend, and she says her story is being shared everywhere!

Perhaps, again, it has something to do with the honest way Fortuna writes about little Prancer:

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. If you own a Chihuahua you probably know what I’m talking about. He’s literally the Chihuahua meme that describes them as being 50% hate and 50% tremble. If you’re intrigued and horrified at how this animal sounds already, just wait....there’s more.

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. 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. His first week he was too terrified to have a personality. As awful as it sounds, I kind of liked him better that way. He was quiet, and just laid on the couch. Didn’t bother anyone. I was excited to see him come out of his shell and become a real dog. 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.

 

Fortuna is seriously trying to find a new home for the dog, but, again, she's not pulling any punches:

Prancer only likes women. Nothing else. He hates men more than women do, which says a lot. If you have a husband don’t bother applying, unless you hate him. Prancer has lived with a man for 6 months and still has not accepted him. He bonds to a woman/women, and takes his job of protection seriously. He offers better protection than capitol security. This also extends to other animals. Have other dogs? Cats? Don’t apply unless they like being shaken up like a ragdoll by a 13lb rage machine. This may be confusing to people, as he currently lives with my other 7 dogs and 12 cats. That’s because we have somewhat come to an agreement that it’s wrong to attack the other animals. But you know that episode of The Office where Michael Scott silently whispers “I’ll kill you.” to Toby? That’s Prancer having to begrudgingly coexist with everyone when I’m around.
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.
At this point, you just want to adopt Prancer because you think you can change him, right? (EDITOR'S NOTE: This does not work with people and it won't work with dogs.)
Don't stop reading yet, because Fortuna says Prancer does have some good points:
He is loyal beyond belief, although to tell you a secret his complex is really just a facade for his fear. If someone tried to kill you I can guarantee he would run away screeching. But as far as companionship, you will never be alone again. He likes to go for car rides, he is housebroken, he knows a few basic commands, he is quiet and non destructive when left alone at home, and even though we call him bologna face he is kind of cute to look at. He also “smiles” when he is excited. His ideal home would be with a single woman, a mother and daughter, or a lesbian couple. You can’t live in an apartment or a condo unless you want him to ankle bite your neighbors. We already addressed the men and children situation. If you have people over he would have to be put away like he’s a vacuum. I know finding someone who wants a chucky doll in a dogs body is hard, but I have to try.
If this sounds like the perfect pet for you, you apparently are not alone in your craziness! Fotuna tells me that, thus far, she's received well over100 applicants from people across the USA and Canada willing to give him a forever home. She says she's sifting through the applications, and hoping to find someone near her, so she can help Prancer get accustomed to his new victims, er, family.
If you're interested in adopting Prancer (WHY?), you can apply via the Second Chance Pet  Adoption League.
