Spirit's Story...
This is a courtesy post for 4 Paws Pet Rescue. If you are interested in this dog please contact them direct at

Spirit is an approximately 1 year old spayed female Chinese Crested and weighs around 9 pounds. She was turned into the shelter with her little friend, Ghost, after her owner passed away. Spirit is invincible. She is a ball of energy, constant motion. She is every human's friend, but can be mouthy so she probably is not best with small children. She is social with men and women. She plays well with other dogs, but can be a little bossy. She has no fear of anything so we will not place her in a home with a larger dog that could harm her if they started playing too roughly.

Spirit is housebroken with a doggy door. She can also sleep in a crate, but she is noisy in her crate and doesn't really like it. She likes to sit on your lap for very short time periods, but she is a very energetic dog so it is difficult for her to stay still! She loves to run around. She doesn't know how to play with toys yet, but she seems to have the personality that would enjoy them. This dog is HILARIOUS!

If you are looking for a comic relief, Spirit is the dog for you. Her adoption fee is $200 plus a $17.99 microchip registration fee. She is spayed, microchipped, fully vaccinated and heartworm tested.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in petaluma 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 petaluma 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 Chinese Crested breeders who help with Chinese Crested rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in petaluma paves the way for another one to be saved.
