Small Fry's Story...
***ADOPTION PENDING***

“Hello, I'd love to introduce myself but I can't remember my name. Over the past few weeks my life has taken a drastic turn, for the better I hope. Thankfully, I've been able to stay with some new friends until I find a more permanent living situation. My foster mom has been calling me Small Fry, I think it's because I'm about 1/8th of the size of my 100 lb. foster brother. I'm a Chihuahua cross and my foster brother is a Bouvier mix. I'm also smaller than the cats that are here but I am bigger than the bird (pfft, who's small now). UPDATE* My foster dad has labelled me Lance, so now it's Lance Small-Fry.

The family I knew from the time I was young is unable to keep me due to irreversible life changes. I was surrendered to a city shelter where I had surgery to repair a hernia and was neutered. I was also health checked, vaccinated, microchipped and treated for fleas and other parasites. I know that I am approximately 3 years old and have LOTS of energy. I love to play with my toys, go on walks and really enjoy car rides.

There are a few other things about me you should know. While I was at the shelter I displayed some aggressive behaviour that deemed me unadoptable through the general avenues. The shelter staff did their best to place me with other rescue organizations but due to lots of rules and limited resources I was set for death row. At the very last minute I got my reprieve when my guardian shelter angel jumped in and took me home. She then reached out to everyone she could to find me somewhere safe to stay for longer than she could keep me. That's when my foster family stepped in.

During my shelter stay I was stressed and displayed fear aggression and resource guarding. Now that I'm out, my foster mom and I are working on these behaviours and I'm learning how to better manage my feelings. I'm wary when meeting new people but warm up quickly. I also don't like to have my valuables threatened in any way, so my new family will need to have some experience in this department to avoid getting hurt. Otherwise, I'm pretty much perfect. I'm really good in my crate at night and am fully house trained. Oh, I should also mention that I don't really like to be left alone, especially when I've just been with my foster family and having fun. I get stressed and will bark and fuss in my crate. I also like to bark at any noise I hear and may be of concern, so apartment or condo living may not be best suited for me, but I'm willing if you are. I think I should also live in an adult only family or with children over 10 years of age as they will be better able to understand when I am feeling anxious or nervous. A home with other pets would be good, I really love my BIG foster brother. I guess that's it ... I'll ask my foster mom to send in updates as our relationship develops.”

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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