Sookie - Gemma's Story...
Sookie is a sweet little female Chihuahua that we found walking down the street in the rain. She is approximately 18 months old, is spayed, microchipped and current on her vaccines, heartworm and flea/tick medications. She came right up when we called her and hopped right in the car. She is a total cuddle monkey! Within twenty minutes of getting her inside, dried off and fed, she was in my lap snuggling. She loves kids and other dogs (we don't have any cats to test her with but she is super sweet so I am sure that she will be fine with them); she loves cuddling with our daughter and getting belly rubs. Sookie would love to find her forever home - email us if you would like to meet her or learn more about her.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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