Alexis's Story...
Alexis is about 12 pounds of constant affection, friendly with everyone, including small children. This happy girl is always up for a hug and a lick to the face. She gets along very well with other dogs, bigger and smaller than her. She does like to chase a cat now and then, which doesn't always make the cats happy but she is never aggressive with them, just curious. Alexis is housebroken and loves to play, go for walks which she handles leash instruction like a champ and cuddle. The only habit her foster momma is attempting to corral is her excitement to get ahead and pass her on people on the stairs which she is working on. She knows sit and come but will need some assistance with focus when she's distracted. She will be such a gift for anyone from a family with a houseful of kids to a single, older adult. Crate trained too. THIS GIRL ABSOLUTELY ROCKS!!! Who is gonna make her theirs and bring this light into their life? Just look at the smile upon her face as that says it all.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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