Jersey's Story...
Shy but sweet, friendly, affectionate, independent, curious, adventurous, energetic, housebroken, likes treats and toys, good with kids 12 and older, has special-needs, handles well on leash walks, a fearful little guy looking for a calm and quiet home to relax in. With time and patience Jersey will warm up, develop trust and be the best companion anyone can ever as for. Photo courtesy of Ellen Dunn.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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