Hey World, check out my new photos from a special photo shoot.  Aren't I handsome!
 
---------------------------------------------------------------
 
Hello world—it’s me, Brutus!!  Now that I have been in foster care for a while I get to write my updates all by myself!!
 
First of all, I would like you to know very handsome I am.  I am caramel and chocolate colors—and who doesn’t love caramel and chocolate??? According to official Chihuahua breed coloring I am what they call a blue and caramel Chihuahua.
 
But—since looks aren’t everything—here are a few of my winning and adorable traits:
 
I am potty trained—that one is always a big hit with potential new Mommies and Daddies!
 
I love to give kisses and get belly rubs. I love to sit on laps.
 
I love car rides.
 
I am very very smart—(watch out world)!!
 
I play well with others—as long as they are small to medium-sized dogs.
 
I am 5 years old!!  That means that I have gone thru all of that annoying puppy stuff but have many many years to love my new family.
 
I am a typical Chihuahua personality—and if you know what means, then we are on the right track to being fast friends.
 
Now that I have you intrigued with my handsome little self, I need to let you know a few more things about me
 
 
 
 
My life has had its ups and downs.  My Daddy had to go into hospice care and that is how I ended up in rescue.  Some days the adjustment has been hard for me, but I am learning to love this new life and all the other pups here with me. It takes me a while to trust new people.
 
Big dogs and dog parks do not work for me—they are a definite NO in my new home.  Also—no small children—those little two-leggers are scary for a little guy like me.
 
I do get scared easily until I know that I can trust you.  My new family will have to go slow with me and have patience. I need someone with doggie experience and who will let me come to them at my own pace.  When I am afraid it looks like I am trying to be very fierce, but it is just fear. I need a family who understands that about me.
 
During the day when foster mom is gone I stay in a Pack ‘n Play.  This keeps me safe and I love it in there.  I would also probably be all right in a crate for short periods of time or gated in a room.
 
My new home needs to have a very secure fenced yard as I have been known to push thru gates when I hear or see something that needs investigation.
 
Like a lot of small dogs, sometimes I think that I am bigger than I really am!  But I am really 10 pounds of pure soft squishy love.
 
So—if you love little guys like me and have the patience to wait for me to learn to trust you, we could be best friends and I will love you forever.
My adoption donation is $300.00.

About A Promise of Love

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a group of friends dedicated to saving the lives of animals and who are experienced with animal rescue. We exist by a network of caring volunteers, foster homes, and cooperating veterinarians. We are all volunteers who strive to save as many breeder releases, owner surrenders, and animals from high-kill shelters as possible.

Our goal is to rescue, provide medical care, socialize, and provide loving foster homes until we match each animal with its carefully screened forever home.
Because every animal deserves a promise of tomorrow, and a gift of life.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our animals are fostered in private homes until they are ready for adoption. As such, we do not have a place of business where animals can be visited.

If you are interested in a particular animal, please submit an adoption application

Our Adoption Process...

A Promise of Love is a national, internet-based rescue organization that permits adoptions nationally with appropriate documentation. Our animals are fostered in private homes until they are ready for adoption. As such, we do not have a place of business where animals can be visited.

If you are interested in a particular animal, please submit an adoption application.

Adoption Process

Once we receive your application:

1. It is screened for completeness and to assure that the information provided conforms to our basic standards for adopters. This process includes checking personal and veterinary references.

2. The application is reviewed by our Board of Directors who decide whether the application is suitable for further processing.

3. If the application passes step 2, a home visit is scheduled.

4. The Board decides, based on all the available information including our knowledge of the animal and its needs, whether the adopter is a suitable candidate for adopting a particular animal.

5. A signed adoption contract is required for all adoptions before an animal can be released. We require an adoption fee that helps defray the medical expenses we incur on the animal, which include sterilization, vaccinations, dental and other health care. The general range of these fees are $250.00 to $500.00.

6. Arrangements are made for the adopter to pick up the animal, at the adopter€™s expense.
