Marlo's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Marlo's Story...
Here is one of the happiest and friendliest little dogs you’ll ever meet! Marlo is 1-2 years old, spayed, up to date on vaccinations, and so delighted to have attention. After being here for only a day and a half, she already knows to run to the back door when “Outside! Potty” are said. She sleeps quietly in her kennel/crate overnight and for brief (2-3 hours) periods during the day. She’s already playing with the two big resident dogs and continues to offer friendship to the cat. She’s peppy but also very happy to be a couch buddy. Her happiness is obvious when anyone talks with her or pets her—attention is the best thing in the world! AND she weighs only 15-16 lbs. so if you have a pet size restriction where you live, MARLO is a LOT of companion in a compact package! She would be a good travel buddy on road trips, too. Anyone would be lucky to have Marlo! Since we don't know at all what doggy genes are in the dogs make up (we don't know who mom and dad are!), we are just guessing on breed.

All dogs are spayed or neutered prior to adoption. They have all had a vet exam, are up to date on vaccinations, have been given a dewormer, are treated for fleas, have a heartworm test if over 6 months old and are up to date on a heartworm preventative.

Please note that because we require a home visit at the time of adoption we can only place animals in homes within a 60 mile radius of Minneapolis.If you are interested in meeting this dog please fill out the pre-adoption application on our website at www.safehandsrescue.org under Adopt and we will get back to you to arrange a meeting in the foster home.

We also have an Adoptable Dog Meet & Greet on Saturday April 4, 2015, at Fetch Delivers Warehouse, 783 Harding St. NE. Suite 150, Minneapolis, MN 55413, from noon - 2 pm. Occasionally dogs cannot make it to the Meet & Greet, therefore feel free to verify if your dog of interest is able to attend. Please bring a copy of your pre-adoption application.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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