Olive's Story...
Olive is a senior dog who came into the CRT program after being hit by a car. She has recovered from those injuries other than an occasional skip in her stride. She weighs about 6 lbs, is deaf and is beginning to lose her eyesight. Quite a sweetheart, she loves to lie beside you and nap, truly a couch potato! She is fine with other dogs, but doesn't interact with them much, preferring to stay to herself.

She walks well on a leash and travels in a crate with no objections. She is not completely house broken though does well if walked frequently. Her foster confines her in a 5 foot pen at night and when away from home, putting down pee pads. She may be able to learn to go to a pee pad when free in the house, however she does not seem to mind the smaller pen when needed.

Olive has not been around children and would probably do best in a home without them. She would be a great dog for a retired person or someone who works from home. She does seem to wander back and forth in her foster's home – perhaps she is making sure she knows where everything is, due to her limited eyesight.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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