Rachel's Info...

I am already spayed, purebred, and up to date with shots.

Rachel's Story...
Rachel was rescued from a breeder dog auction. She wasn't in a puppy mill, per se, but was with a formerly respected show breeder who turned greedy and heartless when she put some of her dogs in a breeder dog auction in the beautiful boonies of Missouri - right in the middle of Puppy Mill Central. Rachel is a white and black full breed Japanese Chin. He flowing coat is amazing. She will require brushing several times a week. Rachel was born May 17, 2007 so she just had her 2nd birthday - plenty of time left in her life to be a well loved pet. She weighs just a bit over 10 pounds. Rachel is the life of the party. She loves to run in the yard, hair flowing behind her. She is full of joy. Rachel likes to be held but her favorite thing is playing. She was shy when she first came to rescue but those days are gone. I
want to mention that many members of the Japanese Chin Club were instrumental in getting these dogs away from the auction. Thank you all very much.


The adoption fee for Rachel is $250. Each of our dogs is up to date on all shots, including rabies, spayed or neutered, microchipped, fecal tested for internal parasites, treated if necessary, tested for heartworm, treated if necessary, on heartworm preventative and we also take care of dentals or any other medical needs they may have.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rachel, a House Springs Japanese Chin dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Japanese Chin for sale in House Springs, or seeking a Japanese Chin dog from a breeder in House Springs.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in House Springs 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 House Springs 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 Japanese Chin breeders who help with Japanese Chin rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in House Springs paves the way for another one to be saved.
