ELMO's Story...
Lil' (about 5 lbs.) "ELMO" was adopted from the shelter in late March 2015; unfortunately, his guardian passed away recently and he was returned to the shelter. He is a very resilient lil' dog and has adjusted well again into shelter life He is a young adult who is a proud dog, is intelligent, and totally housebroken. He would love to find another "forever" home soon. He will do well in a home with another little dog and also as an only dog. He loves to go for car rides and for walks. If you love this breed, then you will love "ELMO".

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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