Chiquita's Info...

I am already spayed, purebred, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, not good with kids, not good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Chiquita's Story...
One year old applehead Chiquita is learning the ropes of her new world. Everything is new for her and at first she is shy and shaky but her confidence builds once she is comfortable and she will play for hours with her buddy, Julie. They are so cute together and its clear how much they love each other so we have them as a bonded pair, we would like for them to go together, to someone with dog/Chihuahua experience.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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