Claire is a little Chihuahua that was picked up as a stray and ended up at a pound in April of 2015.   Scared and not trusting, the volunteers there worked with her everyday to help her overcome those fears.    Claire is still a little iffy when it comes to new people she meets but learns to trust.

She apparently had an injury to her eye before being picked up by the dog warden.   We applied an ointment 3 times a day and her little scratch has healed but she has the start of a cataract. 

Claire loves meeting people so taking her with you shopping, etc would make her happy.  Just don't leave her in the car by herself.    She is tiny so we don't recommend her for a family that has young children not used to being around little ones.  Families with children that are older would be best for Claire. 

Claire's idea home would be with someone that does not have other dogs so that she can be the center of attention.  She loves being with her people and cuddling on the couch with them.  She lives in her foster home with other dogs and will grump and groan at times but they just ignore her. Although she walks well on a leash she does perfer  fenced area to potty in so that she can walk around freely.  She is NOT to be trusted out of her area or off her leash.  Remember she was a stray so wandered off from someone.  A simple exercise pen for pets or toddlers will be perfect for her.  NO tie outs.

Her back legs are a little wobbly at times but she can run just as fast as any of the other dogs in her foster family.

About WolfSpirit's Toy Breed Puppymill Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a small not for profit 501(c)(3) animal rescue organization dedicated to rescuing and re-homing toy breed dogs.
We accept mostly Chihuahua's, Pomeranians, Miniature Schnauzers, Brussels Griffons, Chinese Cresteds, Papillons and Yorkies,( but not limited to these breeds).
We take in the old, the special needs and the young.

They include retired breeders, kennel close outs, and sometimes puppies, that, for some reason were returned or rejected by pet stores.

Although our main focus is helping any ex breeder in need, we also pull from kill shelters and when we have the foster space available will help with owner surrenders.

We consist of families and individuals who foster in our homes since we do not have a physical shelter. We do not receive any government funding nor outside fundraisers. We rely entirely on donations and our own fundraisers to support our efforts. Without our caring and dedicated volunteers and foster homes we would not be able to help these little survivors out of the mills and offer them a chance at a normal life. There are no salaries here for what we do. We get paid with sloppy kisses and a warm body to snuggle up with while they are with us.

Our Adoption Process...

We have an online adoption application for those interested in adopting. We check vet and personal references. Approved adopters must sign an adoption contract. Our adoption donations vary according to each dog. These depend on the expenses that we incur for that particular dog.
