Dexter's Story...
When you adopt a dog you don't just save one life, you save two. Timing is everything. Nugget was just adopted out a couple days ago and today we got a call about this poor little (chunky) guy. Meet Dexter. He's a 7 year old chihuahua who was just surrendered to the rescue because his owner is getting new carpet tomorrow...his owners elderly mom was in tears that her daughter was getting rid of him because she would sleep with him every night. The owner adopted him 5 years ago from the Animal Foundation (our local kill shelter) and today he would have found himself back there if we didn't have a spot open for him. He's great with other dogs (he was best friends with one particular dog in his previous home) and LOVES to sleep under the blankets. He is also fully potty trained!

The adoption fee for Dexter is $150 and includes the puppy being up to date on vaccines, micro-chipped and spayed or neutered.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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