Katy's Story...
Katy is a sweet 3 year old Chihuahua cross. She didn't have a very good start in life and was kept indoors for most of the day. Katy can be fearful of new people, but once she knows and trusts you she bonds very deeply. We are looking for an adult only home for Katy that has someone who could be with her most of the day, and has had experience with small breeds and can help Katy adjust to her forever home.

Katy is a clown once she knows you are safe. She loves to play fetch and LOVES go for walks :). Katy has lived with a small dog and one cat. She is also learning to be around large breed dogs, and seems to be fine with them as long as they give her space.

She needs a home that can continue her socialization and give her a loving forever home.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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