Elsa's Info...

Elsa's Story...
Feeling better and on the road to recovery! Poor Elsa is a sweet Female Terrier mix that was spotted at the local County dog pound in pain and scared. She did not want to come to me at first but realized we were there to help her. Most of her skin was raw from her mange, and her claws were so long she could barely walk. After a quick run to the vet and a skin scraping, it was determined she had Demodectic (red) mange, which is non-contagious. A soothing medicated bath, some treats and a nice soft bed was all it took for her to realize she was in good hands. Unfortunately now Elsa has shown signs of Epilepsy, and will be started on phenobarbital medication. She needs a special home that will continue to give her the love and care she needs. She is approx. 1 year old, heart worm negative, up to date on all her vaccinations and spayed. Her adoption fee is $50.00. Her ID is DF1507014.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Elsa, a Lumberton Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)/Chihuahua dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)/Chihuahua for sale in Lumberton, or seeking a Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)/Chihuahua dog from a breeder in Lumberton.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Lumberton 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 Lumberton 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 Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)/Chihuahua breeders who help with Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)/Chihuahua rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Lumberton paves the way for another one to be saved.
