Mingus's Story...
Hey daddy-o! What do you know? Are you familiar with the sound of love? Have you felt comfort in the form of an extended hug? Free form. Like jazz on a hot and windy night in the South. There is a storm a-brewing, but it will wash away heartache and be so sooo soothing. My love for you will be like hot glue from a craft gun. I will be stuck on you and you on me and then there will be We. Wheeeeee! Like pinwheels in a wind tunnel round and round our love shall go and where it stops we will never know. Hey there! Kitty, kitty, oh so pretty would you want to play with me? Cat chase mouse and I chase cat but with no fear, only for fun. Hey, little child! Oh so mild and 8 years alive can you love me? Let me thrive? Red rover red rover can you please come over to play? Till it is late in the day, then I must bid you adieu. To bed I go in my crate for it is late, and slumber awaits. As I wait. For your love…. 3 years old-8lbs. My adoption fee is $180 and includes neuter, microchip, reduced-cost training class, free veterinary exam, 1 month pet health insurance, leash/collar, food sample, toy & treat packet.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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