Roxy's Story...

Date Animal Rescued:   December 6,  2013  

Date Adopted:   February 8, 2014  

Adoption Donation:   $150.00

All About Me:   Roxy was rescued from a backyard breeder in McDowell County.  She has lived her life having puppies for her owner.  Roxy has some real trust issues with humans but she is learning that we can be pretty nice and that we also give treats!  Roxy needs an owner that understands that she may have some trust issues at first, but once she knows that you will not hurt her she will never leave your side.  She gets along great with the other dogs and cats in her foster home.  She can be bossy and sassy when she wants to be, but otherwise she is a good little girl.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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