Joe - 8 lbs!'s Story...
SEE VIDEO ALSO ON THIS PAGE! (Note, the barking dog in the video is NOT Joe; he is the quiet one!)

Joe is a Chihuahua or Chihuahua mix. He is solidly built at 8 pounds, a light yellow tan with some white around his face. The vet thinks he is around 4 years old. He has been fixed and his shots are current. He has a very sweet serious nature and is always following either me or my hubby around. Hubby says he is needy. I say he is affectionate. He insists on sleeping between us, touching both of us at the same time, same on the couch. He has an endearing face and loves to be petted. He did not seem to be trained, but he now uses the doggie door to "go" on his own, and will also respond to commands to "go" when I take him outside. He plays well with other dogs and gets along with the cat.

Joe is a Velcro dog, and he craves human company. He would do well with someone who is home a lot of the time. He has the temperament to fit in well with someone who wants a dog that can go into the workplace with them. Joe also does well with children. He is a great comfort companion. He has a peaceful presence and is happy to cuddle or just be in close contact on a couch or chair. Joe is not completely quiet. He has a sharp bark he uses to alert me of the presence of intruders. On sunny days when I am busy, Joe goes out in the back yard and basks in the sunshine. He is a pleasure to have around.

Please contact me if you are interested in giving Joe a loving home, or know someone who you could pass this ad along to.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Joe - 8 lbs!, a Los Angeles Chihuahua dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Chihuahua for sale in Los Angeles, or seeking a Chihuahua dog from a breeder in Los Angeles.

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