Ike's Story...
Ike is 9 years old and a very happy dog who loves to romp and play with toys. At the shelter, he was an owner surrender. Emaciated and subdued when he came into rescue, he has since put on weight and is now galloping around with a toy in his mouth.

Ike likes the other dogs in his foster home but does not play with them. He loves to snuggle under a blanket in a dog bed or on his foster Mom's lap. When strangers visit he is stand-offish at first, but he does warm up to them.

Ike stays in an Ex-Pen during the day and holds his business while his foster mom works. He sleeps in his dog bed at night but would probably love to sleep in the bed with his “forever” human when he finds him or her.

Ike is a delightful dog that has a lot to give. He is a joy to have around and is neutered, crate trained and UTD on shots.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ike, 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.
