Lyra's Story...
Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the cutest pup of all. LYRA! She is a Chihuahua/Poodle mix born approximately 1/06. She is up to date on shots, has been spayed and tested negative for heartworms. Lyra has gone through a lot in her life and with the help of her foster mom and dad, is learning to trust humans and love life again. She is also getting along rather well with her foster moms other dog and cats. Lyra, along with some friends, were residing in an overcrowded living situation where she was allowed to reproduce for money before being brought to a local animal control facility. Once there, she was so scared and her immune system so low, that she contracted upper respiratory and pneumonia. Her foster mom has been doctoring her and she is now on the road to recovery. Lyra only weighs approximately 6 lbs. right now, but should put on at least 3 more lbs. to be at a healthy weight and will not be adopted to a home with children. This is as much for the child’s sake as for Lyra since quick movements startle her and she might nip a little one. A lot of her hair had fallen out due to fleas, but is starting to come in quite nicely now. Do you have the low-key, quiet home and lap that Lyra needs to help her feel loved for the first time in her life?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Lyra, a Baton Rouge Chihuahua/Poodle (Miniature) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Chihuahua/Poodle (Miniature) for sale in Baton Rouge, or seeking a Chihuahua/Poodle (Miniature) dog from a breeder in Baton Rouge.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Baton Rouge 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 Baton Rouge 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/Poodle (Miniature) breeders who help with Chihuahua/Poodle (Miniature) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Baton Rouge paves the way for another one to be saved.
