Chitta's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, a special needs pet, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, not good with kids, and good with dogs.

Chitta's Story...
My name is Chitta, I am 8 years old and weigh 5 pounds. I have been living with my foster mom for a year before being up for adoption, because when I was saved from the shelter I was scared of everything and protected myself with aggression. I have come a long way since that day a year ago. I have learned how enjoyable it is to sit on someone’s lap and be petted. If I had my way, I’d spend my whole day in a lap! I also love to go on walks on my leash, sniffing and seeing the great outdoors. Basking in a warm patch of sunlight is one of my favorites as well.

My foster has taught me how to sit and stay. I seldom have accidents in the house as long as I’m offered the opportunity to go out.
I am looking for a special forever home that can be patient with me because I am still trying to learn how to trust people, especially those I am not familiar with. Is that special person you?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Chitta, 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.
