Rigby's Story...
Hi! I am Rigby and I am a very special boy. I came from one of those aweful puppy mills and this nice lady took me out of there. She came down with health challenges and decided the best thing would be for me to have a new home. She did work with me and I was making progress. But I need lots of work to be socialized.

If you have a big heart and lots of patience, won't you take me home and work with me? I am so excited about being loved on, but it scares me. So I run up to you and when you reach for me, I go into flight mode. Right now you can't pick me up and hold me, but within a couple of days I will come to you. Just don't reach for me and please give me time to heal my heart from all that I've been through.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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