Apricot's Story...
Apricot is a 3 year old Chihuahua mix. He arrived at the shelter with 28 other dogs that were rescued from a hoarding case in Northwestern Ohio. The dogs belonged to a basement breeder. Friendship Director, Greg Willey and several other rescues traveled to the Ohio/Michigan border to save a total of almost 200 dogs. The dogs were kept in small cages, ungroomed and experienced very little socialization or stimulation. Now every experience for them is a new one. All are gentle and not nippy. They are curious and already enjoying their new encounters. They will need experienced owners that will give them lots of time, patience, training and love to slowly start their new lives. All have been adopted but 4 and many adopters have reported back that the dogs are doing great. None of the dogs have been returned to the shelter.

If you have kids and/or another dog in your family and are interested in adopting a Friendship dog please bring them with you for a meet and greet. No appointment is necessary. Stop by anytime during regular business hours.

All dogs receive one or more vaccinations, a basic veterinary examination, are wormed, heartworm tested and spayed or neutered. Dogs 3 months and older are micro-chipped.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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