TUFFY's Story...
FOR ADOPTION! TUFFY! We're not sure that Tuffy really lives up to his name. This little angel puts on a brave front but he is a shy guy at first meeting. TUFFY belonged to an elderly couple who could not care for their 15+ dogs and thus, all dogs were surrendered to the shelter. TUFFY is a Chihuahua mix and about 7 years young. He is a total sweetheart. He is comfortable with our office staff and follows them like velcro. We believe that once in a stable, loving home environment, Tuffy will really blossom. TUFFY is great with dogs and cats. TUFFY IS CONSIDERED A FOREVER FOSTER. He has stiffness in his back and is on a daily, liquid oral medication that he takes like a trooper. He will need a home where he doesn't need to go up and down stairs or is carried. The Humane Society of Oldham County will cover TUFFY's medical costs for the remainder of his lifetime. He is so so sweet and just wants that loving family to sit on their lap and get lots of pets! Tuffy needs a little work on house breaking but the rest of his house manners are just fine. TUFFY is medium energy and will melt in the lap of his person. Interested in meeting this handsome, loving fella? Contact the Humane Society of Oldham County. TUFFY is up to date on vaccinations, heartworm negative, neutered, vetted and microchiped. Email to or phone our office at 502-222-7537.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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