Chi Chi - in Maine's Story...
July 2016 update: ChiChi’s foster mom tells us,"he is a fairly mellow guy around the house. He loves their enclosed yard but he is content to stay indoors snuggling in the comfy chair and sometimes needs to be encouraged to go out so he doesn’t have an accident. He loves to go for car rides and look out the window. He likes to snuggle in bed if you let him. We went camping and he decided that the best place to sleep was right between us and he tried to push us off the bed!

Chi Chi loves belly, back and head rubs. He loves stuffed animal toys and will play happily with them. He was nervous about nail clipping so we are working on desensitizing him. He also does better with the chewable flea/tick products than the liquid.

He can be protective of his house will be sure to let you know if someone is coming to the door. He needs to know that everything is fine when you have visitors and feels better if you tell him its okay. Having your guests give him several treats works well but if someone comes right at him without letting him initiate the interaction he may be defensive. If he barks we call him to us for reassurance.

He currently lives and gets along with my 90 year old mother in law, 4 birds, 1 cat and another dog his size. He has met other dogs and has been fine with some and has disliked others. Any meeting with another dog should be done on neutral territory.”

Chi Chi has been to a number of adoption events with us and he charms the crowd, responding very well when people let him initiate the interaction

Chi Chi is a 5 and a half year old Pug, Pekingese, Chihuahua mix! This super cute little dude was a local surrender to the rescue when his owners decided that their long work schedule which left him home alone for as many as 16 hours a day was not fair, especially as he adores being with people. We recently had him undergo surgery for a very large benign growth from which he recovered beautifully.

Here are some thoughts from his foster after getting to know him in their home: Chi Chi likes snuggles, belly rubs, walks and sunning himself on the porch. He likes to be with his people all the time. Sometimes he startles at loud noises or sudden movements.He is coming out of his shell if given time time to adapt to new situations. He likes playing with his furry foster siblings and he gets along with the cat and birds there too. He would do well in a placement with an older couple or single person. Little children seem to make him nervous but respectful older kiddos are fine for him. He walks well on a leash too.

We have found that ChiChi, like most dogs, does best if humans let him do the approaching. He is more comfortable if you don't reach over his head or rush towards him. He is a quiet guy and would like a calm home with other pets or as an only if you are home a lot, but he's also up for adventure too! He has been a great ambassador dog at events for us!

Chi Chi weighs 25 lbs and could continue to lose a bit more weight.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Chi Chi - in Maine, a kennebunkport Pug/Pekingese dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Pug/Pekingese for sale in kennebunkport, or seeking a Pug/Pekingese dog from a breeder in kennebunkport.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in kennebunkport 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 kennebunkport 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 Pug/Pekingese breeders who help with Pug/Pekingese rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in kennebunkport paves the way for another one to be saved.
