Tootsie's Story...
Tootsie is an approximately three year old, nine to ten pound Chihuahua mix. She was rescued from a high kill southern shelter, where she had been a stray. Tootsie was happy and charming from the moment the animal control office found her on the street. She was so sweet that the officer wrapped her up in his jacket, it was very cold, and allowed her to ride on the front seat with him, as he made other calls. He came to the volunteer office, when he arrived at the shelter, to make sure that she would have special attention, and not be euthanized. As Tootsie served out the time of her stray hold, she continued to be a delight. When anyone walked by her cage, she would jump up, "smile", and beg to be rescued. All the employees and staff could not believe that the owner of this precious little dog, did not come to redeem her. However, no owner appeared, and she was adopted by our rescue.

Tootsie is great with the eight other dogs in her foster home. She adores to cuddle in the chair and watch TV, and to sleep in the big bed. She is completely healthy, spayed, and up to date on immunizations. She seems to be housebroken, and is happy to go outside with her foster mom.

Whoever is lucky enough to adopt Tootsie, will have a loving companion.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Stamford 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 Stamford 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 Papillon/Chihuahua breeders who help with Papillon/Chihuahua rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Stamford paves the way for another one to be saved.
