Violet's Story...
Meet Violet – at nine pounds, this 8-year-old Chihuahua is great with other dogs and an easy companion around the home. Violet was passed over at the shelter because of a hernia the size of a golf ball hanging off her abdomen, likely the result of having too many puppies. Today, Violet is spayed and the hernia is fixed, leaving this little girl ready for her forever home. She likes to take walks and loves to be seen around town. Violet loves to snooze on her bed, never misses a meal and periodically looks up with a pleading look to have those bunny ears rubbed. She is both sweet and bossy, shy and yet with a swagger around her younger Chihuahua foster sister. Whatever life she had, Violet had a hard time trusting people. Now, she is quick to learn new ways of being in the world. She is quiet and so smart. When she looks at you, it is more like she is studying you, as if she knows she was not raised properly and just would like some instruction, please. It doesn’t hurt that this little scrap will do just about anything for a treat. Violet travels frequently with her foster family, snuggling up in her bed on road trips and loving new adventures. Give Violet the retirement she deserves. Due to Violet's small size and ability to startle when scared, we believe she would do best in a calm, quiet home without small children. Violet likes other dogs, especially big ones, and would excel in a multi-dog family.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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