Rocky's Story...
Meet Rocky, the feather-weight champion of Adopt-A-Pet! While we don't know too much about him as he's new to AAP, our first impressions of this little one are, well, he's little! - weighing in at a whopping 4.06 lbs. of SWEETNESS. He's a quiet little boy, not at all hyper. We scooped him up the same day he got dumped at Chicago Animal Control and are scratching our heads as to why someone would give this little angel up. So all we can tell you at the time of this writing is that he's been very polite, quiet, a little reserved, and true to his breed, he enjoys being held. He also has pretty unique coloring and markings for a chi...rather like a Holstein cow (for all of you cow officianados out there).

Rocky should be adopted into a home without young children, just because he's so very small. This report is written just after being taken to his foster home where he was befriended within minutes by the other small dogs there, with frolicking erupting immediately thereafter.

Rocky's adoption fee of $300 includes: vet exam, heartworm test (neg), distemper combo vaccination, bordetella and rabies vaccinations, fecal exam, routine deworming, flea control, microchip and neutering.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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