Joy and Pepe's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Joy and Pepe's Story...
Pepe and Joy are a bonded pair, both around 12 years old. They are extremely good natured. They are not excessive barkers, though will bark if someone comes to the door but they settle down quickly. They get along great with other dogs, cats and older children (7 years +). They are crate trained but will also use pee pads. These two are very smart little dogs, loyal, and good companions. They do not require a lot of exercise and are very laid back, suitable for someone with a more sedentary lifestyle.

Joy weighs 6.5 lbs and loves to sit in your lap for hours at a time. Pepe is just a bit bigger, weighing in at 6.4 lbs. He delights in burrowing under blankets to sleep. Both dogs are in good health and up to date on their vaccinations, spayed and neutered – but they would benefit from having their teeth cleaned. Pepe also has some mild allergies.

If you can find it in your heart to give these two a home, you will also receive their crates, bedding, harnesses, leashes, and bowls.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Joy and Pepe, 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.
