Dolly's Story...
This adorable butterball is Dolly. Dolly came from an over crowded high risk shelter. If that wasn't bad enough - she also tested positive for heartworms. Once safely pulled with ARF, Dolly was treated for heartworms the end of October. She made her way to PA 6 weeks later and since then has been adjusting in her foster home. Foster parents have already fell head over heels for this Sweet Chihuahua! Dolly has such a gentle soul and just loves to be around her people, other dogs, she resides with cats, and is housebroken. Dolly would also be fine with children over 5. She doesn't particularly like her crate so foster mom is trying to get her used to it by giving some of her meals in her crate to help her get more comfortable, and it is working. When its time to go outside for potty and she thinks its too cold to go out to go potty, she'll high-tail it into her safe place (the crate). She is so adorable, constantly in play bow and tail wagging. Dolly is looking forward to 2015, a new year with new beginnings, and one of her resolutions is to lose a couple of pounds. She is about 14 pounds right now, she should prob be closer to 10-12 for a healthier life. Dolly ran errands with foster mom today, and what a good girl she is in the car, sitting great in her dog seat and staying put while alone, just a great travel companion. Dolly is spayed, micro-chipped and UTD on vaccines. She will need to be rechecked for heartworms in a couple of months to ensure all is well with that.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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