Patrick's Story...
Patrick is an 8 year old Rat Terrier/Chihuahua mix. He is a little shy with strangers until he gets to know you. He loves to be around people and to be held. He is always busy, sniffing, wagging his tail furiously, noticing everything that is happening. His owners could no longer take care of him. Because of his age, he qualifies for our senior-for-a- senior program. Anyone 55+ who adopts a dog over 5 years of age, the adoption fee is half ($50.00). Please fill out an application, all references will be checked, including the vets and a pre-home visit is manadatory for all dog adoptions.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Dunkirk 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 Dunkirk 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/Rat Terrier breeders who help with Chihuahua/Rat Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Dunkirk paves the way for another one to be saved.
