Dutchess's Story...
Dutchess found her way to Rocket Dog with Parvovirus, she fought for her life and she won the battle. She was with a veterinary clinic for some time as she recovered and she is now staying with her foster Angie who is a professional dog trainer teaching her the ropes using positive reinforcement techniques.
Dutchess is looking for an active family to call her own and when I say family, she would just adore a big one! Complete with kids, cats and even other canines who are older and fully vaccinated. I’m also sure that she would be fond of the active individual or couple too as she is loves people!
She is sprightly and smart and knows sit, we are working her puppy nibbles, down as well as not jumping up (she is quite the jumping bean!), but she learns quickly and because she is so smart and active she will need a lot of mental and physical stimulation to keep her out of trouble.
She is almost crate trained, she will go into her crate and hang out in there and she travels well in it too, but she needs more work on relaxing in the crate for longer periods of time. She is potty pad trained too and with the right structure and consistency she will be a breeze to house train.
She LOVES toys and she will entertain herself for quite a bit by running through the apartment with them. She likes fetch or should I say keep away, as she’ll chase it, catch it, bring the ball back half way, play bow and then run off to entertain herself again.
She is also the BEST cuddler in the world! She loves to be ever so close and she particularly likes to curl up by my feet at bed time, but all other times she is close to my body or in my arms. She also likes to burrow. She takes to one of the cat tree nooks too, kind of funny looking at a little dog in a cat tree.
Dutchess is one of the best little puppy dogs ever and she is eagerly awaiting her furever home.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dutchess, a San Francisco Chihuahua puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Chihuahua for sale in San Francisco, or seeking a Chihuahua puppy from a breeder in San Francisco.

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