Nikko's Info...

I am in need of an experienced adopter, not good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Nikko's Story...
Hi! My name is Nicko! I am a 4 year old, male, Chihuahua. I am a shy Chihuahua who needs a family who is experienced with Chihuahuas or at least small dogs. I am nervous around new people but once you have earned my trust, all I want is to sit in your lap! I like to be carried around. I am great with other dogs but terrified of cats. Small children are too much for me so I will need an adult-only home. I have separation anxiety so I will bark when left alone. That means living in an apartment probably won’t work for me. I hope you don’t mind sharing your bed, because I will need to sleep with you under the covers! I still need to be potty-trained. If you would like to meet me, please stop by WHS.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Bellingham 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 Bellingham 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 Bellingham paves the way for another one to be saved.
