Buttercup's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.

Buttercup's Story...
Buttercup is estimated to be about 6 years old, weighs 7 pounds and appears to be purebred Chihuahua. Buttercup can be a little timid at first and a bit more so around men. She loves some men but others seem to scare her. We don't know why and are working to help her change how she feels about ALL men! Buttercup has not been around kids or cats while in our care, but is fine with the resident 45 pound mellow mutt. Buttercup rides well in a car. She has a puppy bed and a comfy crate with an open door available for her to sleep in at night, but prefers to jump in bed with human foster mom and resident mutt. She does well in her kennel when crated for up to 6-8 hours when foster mom goes to work. Buttercup loves her toys. She will fetch in the house and loves to chew on bones. Buttercup is a typical lap dog: with small bouts of fetching tiny toys, she would want nothing more than to eat lots of treats and sleep next to you when you watch TV or be cuddled in your lap or on your chest.

Buttercup would love to find the right home with someone who understands she needs just a little bit of time and she'll be your best friend. She would love someone who has a quiet home, would love a lap warmer, and would enjoy a little chihuahua girl to throw a toy, make them laugh and be their little buddy. We know she needs a special person to give her a little extra but we think she's worth it and hope you will too.

Please note that because we require a home visit at the time of adoption we can only place animals in homes within a 60 mile radius of Minneapolis.

If you are interested in meeting this dog or pup please fill out the pre-adoption application on our website at under Adopt and we will get back to you to arrange a meeting in the foster home.

We also have an Adoptable Dog Meet & Greet on Saturday March 7, 2015, at Fetch Delivers Warehouse, 783 Harding St. NE. Suite 150, Minneapolis, MN 55413, from noon - 2 pm. Occasionally dogs cannot make it to the Meet & Greet, therefore feel free to verify if your dog of interest is able to attend. Please bring a copy of your pre-adoption application.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Buttercup, a Minneapolis Chihuahua dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Chihuahua for sale in Minneapolis, or seeking a Chihuahua dog from a breeder in Minneapolis.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Minneapolis already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Minneapolis breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Chihuahua breeders who help with Chihuahua rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Minneapolis paves the way for another one to be saved.
