Minnie's Story...
UPDATE 9/7/14: Minnie has an adoption pending!

This little bitty girl, Minnie, found one of our rescuers early one morning. She had been hiding out resting under a parked car on a very busy road. She walked painfully because her nails were so overgrown and she was riddled with fleas. Our rescuer took her in, bathed her, and took her to the vet. The vet gave her a clean bill of health despite her state of neglect! She is heartworm negative and has been started on heartworm prevention and flea/tick prevention.

Minnie is about a year or two old, and only 4 lbs and due to her tiny size we are seeking a family that will care for her as the fragile little lady she is. Vets believe her to be a purebred chihuahua but we make no guarantees! Minnie is very tentative around other dogs, probably due to her tiny size, but she is learning to come around her foster brothers and sister, albeit slowly. Minnie is housebroken and not destructive. Minnie gets very excited when her foster mom comes home and loves to snuggle with her and nibble her fingers.

Minnie would make a great low-maintenance pet for an older person or retired couple, or a family with older children who know and understand how carefully a 4 lb. dog needs to be handled. Minnie is very well behaved and loves to be petted and talked to, and to sit with you on your lap!

Minnie will be spayed prior to adoption. She has been examined by a vet, has received all her vaccinations, and is very healthy for being out on her own for what appears to be a great while. She has been microchipped as well.

Interested adopters please email for an adoption application. Reference checks, vet reference, home visit, and meet and greet required. Adoption fee applies.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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