Equal parts Toothless the dragon, Dobby the house elf, and a baby bat – that’s how we’d describe Carpe Diem’s appearance. But this Chihuahua mix has a personality that is just as eccentric and captivating as his looks.

The staff at the San Francisco Animal Care shelter named him ‘Carpe Diem’ for his wonderful seize-the-day attitude, and it’s easy to see why. Moreover, this Chi mix is full of energy and always eager to explore his surroundings.
