Meet Chico, our Point Pet of the Week, who was returned by his family after a year because the other dog in the home didn't get along with him.

The Monmouth County SPCA says Chico was originally rescued off the streets of Puerto Rico where he was homeless. This sweet dog can be shy around new people but once he warms up he is so friendly.

His previous family says he loves to snuggle and is just a complete sweetheart with those he knows. Chico is very playful and loves to fetch. He'll play for hours if you indulge him. And he knows a lot of his basic commands and can even catch treats in the air.
