My name is Sisco!

Chihuahua Dog for adoption in Cole Camp, Missouri - Sisco

I found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.

Sisco's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, not good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Sisco's Story...
04-28-08 Sisco is a 15 YO 7 lb. short hair brindle boy.
He is up to date on age appropriate vaccinations. He only has 4 teeth & those look quite clean. He is on a special diet to help his kidneys function.

His owner died with no provisions made for his care. The vet asked us to help Sisco so he hitched a ride to rescue.

Sisco will be on site as we test his cat manners & his behavior with the other K-9 fur-kids. He may then be moved to a foster home.

04-29 Sisco is so tiny, his little tongue hangs out to the side since most of his teeth are gone. It makes him absolutely irresistible!
At this time he is doing fine with the other fur-kids, has not yet been cat tested.
Quiet little rider, rode on the lap, evidently did so in the past.

04-30 Sisco is doing fine, thus will move into foster care with Barbara, our chihuahua foster home. She adores these little chi's.
Nothing seems to bother him.

The updates on his/her likes & dislikes will help you know if this fur-kid is suitable for your home.

We will be evaluating, loving, letting go to make room for another fur-kid at risk.

05-04 Sisco is the Mascot of the Maddux Estate. He's a grumpy old man, yet loves to be held.
He doesn't like other dogs in his face, yet not much he can do with just 4 back teeth.

05-05 Sisco visited Doc with Judy V tagging along.
Doc had attended a convention a few weeks ago & one of the topics discussed was old dogs.
Cartilage calcifies, arthritis develops & keeping them comfy is about the only thing to be done.
The cough appears more pronounced with stress. At the seminar it was indicated that bronchial issues can lead to heart problems if left untreated. Thus, Sisco will be kept on lasix, 1/2 dose, 2 times a day for the rest of his little life.

Sisco's old skin lesions appear from a chronic yeast infection. He will be given a Rx bath once a week.
Overall, his health is quite good for a little fur-man of his advanced age.

If you adopt this fur-kid, your original adoption donation is perpetual.
You may adopt another appropriate senior (10 years & older or special needs) fur-kid from us after this fur-kid passes to the Rainbow Bridge, becoming an Angel Dog.

--------------------------------

The adoption fee ranges from $150 to $300.
The fee is based upon veterinary care, age & size of dog.
The higher adoption fee on the younger small dogs helps care for the older dogs that take longer to find fur-ever homes.
Senior citizens and disabled receive a discount.
We also offer a discount to those in uniform keeping us safe.
Land of the free because of the brave.

Our adoption process begins with the e-mail or phone call to us. Please be prepared to furnish your complete name, address, telephone number, your veterinarian contact information & at least two personal references. We will then call you to ask a series of questions.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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