Today we have a special little dog from the Disney film Oliver and Company. Tito (full name: Ignacio Alonzo Julio Frederico de Tito) is a Chihuahua from Fagin's gang in Disney's 1988 movie, . He was voiced by Cheech Marin.
Tito is a wisecracking, proud Chihuahua who seems to forget how small he is, and his fiery temper goads him into fights with anybody, even to take on dogs much larger than himself, perpetuating the stereotype that many small dogs, especially Chihuahuas, can be much fiercer than big dogs. He also considers himself something of a ladies' dog, flirting with the spoiled poodle Georgette. He speaks with a thick American-Mexican accent, suggesting he's a Mexican (South American) dog. He has anger issues and he is tough and good-hearted.
