FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - Chico the Chihuahua is heading to his new adoptive home.

Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control will said a fond farewell as Chico headed to his new home this afternoon.

Chico was removed from a home last month after he was discovered under a blanket in the garage. He weighed three pounds and had a body temperature so low that it didn’t register on a thermometer.

So who is Chico’s new best friend?

It’s the man who found Chico a short time from death. Officer Brock Williams will take Chico home to two other play pals and a family ready to have Chico. Williams said, “There's two other dogs for maybe two years and so it was kind of we didn't know if there was going to be a conflict or not when they were introduced to them. They all got along great. Got a lot of ground they can play in, out in the country a little bit and I think they'll take him in quite well.”

Williams said it was an unforgettable experience when he discovered Chico. Today he recalled that he had never seen a dog in such poor shape as when he found the Chihuahua. Williams said, “I don't know if I felt sorry for him when we found him, but I fell in love with him immediately. And basically when I was talking to my wife about the situation and what happened, what we found later on, maybe a couple of days later, she said we should adopt him.”

And adopt Chico they did. Brock and Chico can now call themselves Chico and the Man.
