Contessa's Story...
Hello, my name is Contessa and I really want a home where I am an only dog with nothing more important to do than sit in your lap or follow you around all day. I am around 14 yrs old and had a nice mommy from the time I was born. Unfortunately my mommy got very sick and I came to stay with Chihuahua Rescue. A few months ago my mommy died. I am in foster care but I don't really like some of the other dogs (especially puppies) because they are too young and rambunctious. I have had a recent dental and don't really have any health issues except I am deaf. That isn't a problem as I will never take my eyes off you. If you are interested in me you can email my foster mom lynn@rescueachi.com

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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