Tippy's Info...

I am already neutered and up to date with shots.

Tippy's Story...
He doesn’t have an outgoing personality and he wasn’t handled enough (or something) for him to develop much of a need for physical touch.
He’s shown no interest in toys, fun with the pack, people/doggie interplay, being picked up, or walking across the threshold to go outside. I HAVE managed to train him to give me a nose bump and a little soft mouthing when I ask him to give me a “little lovin’.” This is my reward to him. He’s been too overweight for me to offer him edible treats.
Oh, he IS down to 9.4-pounds from more than 10. And at least he’s stopped howling when I leave the room.

Tippy is current on vaccines, spay/neutered and heartworm tested. Adoption fee for Tippy is $250. If you are interested in adopting Tippy, please visit our website www.furgetusnotrescue.org and fill out an adoption application.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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