Checo's Story...
Checo here! Thanks for checo’ing me out! Hehe see what I did there? I’m an older bloke who’s looking to retire in peace. Do you have a calm quiet house that I can retire in? Could you understand the changes that come with an aging dog? I’ve had enough bouncing around in my life, including coming from Cozumel. It has worn on my stability and I need a little help from medication for my anxiety. Now, I fear I am losing my vision as well. So, I need consistency and safety. I don’t much care for change or excitement in my everyday life but I would love to accompany you on walks and being out in the world. I love being busy. I have made mistakes in my past life and bit a child, but everyone that has met me understands that I was just trying to be left alone. I also really want to protect my person as we settle in for the night and try to fend off her companion. There has been so much change in her life that I am having a hard time adjusting. I get more scared at night though, I think my eyes are playing tricks on me. I like to claim my space and stuff, so I do need someone that can set some boundaries for me. Even people coming to my house is a big change that I don’t take well to, but I’m cool being in another room for alone time. I don’t mind other dogs but only the ladies please. I feel threatened by other males and will try to mark my space. Cats….. no… Kids…. Well, maybe teenagers?
I know it sounds like I’m a grumpy old man… well, I kinda am, but I have such a young spry personality you’ll be locked in! I just need mellow, calm leadership and consistency. Checo's adoption fee is $150

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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