After months without any offers, a 2-year-old Chihuahua in New Jersey - who is said to hate men, kids, and other animals - suddenly has hundreds of people interested in adopting him.

And it's all thanks to a now viral Facebook ad posted by the rescue pup's foster parent.

In an ad for his adoption posted to Facebook on Wednesday, Tyfanee Fortuna described Prancer as a "13-pound rage machine" and "a haunted Victorian child in the body of a small dog."

She also listed some of Prancer's more redeeming qualities in the post, which had over 37,000 likes at the time of writing and plenty of comments from people amused by Fortuna's honesty.

"As far as companionship, you will never be alone again," Fortuna wrote in the ad. "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."

The ad got even more attention on Friday, when it was picked up by Twitter user @HLMongoose. Since then, it has received close to 300,000 more likes and thousands of replies on the platform.

A representative for Second Chance Pet Adoption League said that Fortuna's ad has led to hundreds of emails inquiring about Prancer, who has had no interested adopters for months.

"Prancer has completely taken over our lives right now since he has become an overnight sensation, and we are now his full-time agents and press secretaries," the representative said.

Prancer was still available for adoption through Second Chance Pet Adoption League at the time of writing.

Fortuna said that Prancer's "ideal home would be with a single woman, a mother and daughter, or a lesbian couple."

"If you have a husband don't bother applying," the post read, "unless you hate him."

The pup also doesn't take kindly to children, said Fortuna, whose post said that "Prancer wants to be your only child."

Fortuna also doesn't recommend adopting Prancer if you live in an apartment or condo, because he may bite your neighbors' ankles, she said.

"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 wrote.

Fortuna did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.
