Cedar's Story...
Good With Kids: Unknown
Good With Other Dogs: Yes, but more interested in humans
Good With Cats: No
Housetrained: Yes
Crate Trained: Yes
Walks Nicely On A Leash: He’s got a very handsome prance!
Knows Basic Commands: Learning
Energy Level (Couch Potato, Moderate or High): Medium
Special Needs: Seasonal allergies

Arrival story: We found Cedar at a crowded, rural shelter. He was happy to get out of that noisy place and into a humans lap.

Approximate age / weight: 2 years old / 12 lbs.

Personality: Cedar is incredibly affectionate, has good house manners, is house-trained and crate-trained. He is move-in ready! Cedar quickly fell into his foster home routine and was thrilled to get some human attention! When Cedar arrived it was discovered the poor guy had whipworms. He has been treated and re-checked and worm free now! He will need another round of meds in October as a precaution. Cedar is good at the vet’s office and in the car.

Cedar after a calm intro, is good with other dogs (he enjoys rasslin' with his puppy foster sister) but where his heart is at is with his person. He LOVES to cuddle, sleep under covers, chew on a good bone and will do anything for a treat. Cedar likes to go for walks, watch the front window and hang out in the sun in the backyard. He is a total lap dog and likes to just be touching you whenever possible.

Forever home: Cedar would enjoy a quieter lifestyle with a special someone(s) who enjoy a good walk with a good snuggle afterwards. With great house manners and charming personality Cedar will make an excellent companion. With some seasonal allergies, Cedar requires Benedryl or Zyrtec to be able enjoy the oh so fabulous Michigan summers!

We do not have a facility; all of our dogs are fostered in private homes. To view our dogs, please check for the dates of our next adoption events. To meet a dog in person, please see our event calendar for the latest information. Arrangements can be made to meet our rescue dogs outside of Saturday adoption events after an approved application is submitted (the application does not imply an obligation by the applicant or by the rescue group).

Please be kind to our volunteers who have made rescue a second job that they do in their spare time after coming home from full-time jobs. E-mail inquiries will be answered much more quickly than phone inquiries; our phone number is a voice mailbox only.

Thank you for your support of rescue and your interest in a rescue dog!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Northville 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 Northville 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/Whippet breeders who help with Chihuahua/Whippet rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Northville paves the way for another one to be saved.
