Geo (Special Needs)'s Story...
Age: Senior?
Male Neutered
13 lbs

Adoption Fee: $125 (includes spay/neuter, microchip, vaccinations)

Geo was found as a stray by animal control in Hayward. After examination by the shelter’s vet, it was determined that Geo has a grade 3 heart murmur. He was seen by a specialist and diagnosed with mitral valve disease which could eventually lead to congestive heart failure. Geo will need to be on heart medication for the remainder of his life. Life expectancy is hard to tell, probably 2-3 years? He will need moderate exercise (nothing strenuous). He should avoid being outside on really hot days. Estimated annual costs of his treatment is around $600 (medications and 6-month check-ups). Nobody’s Perfekt Dogs is offering to provide financial support for Geo’s vet costs, if needed.

Geo may be a little shy at first, but quickly warms up to people. The shelter approved him for all ages of kids (which is rare), but he needs to not overdue it with strenuous play. He is good with other dogs his size. Not sure about cats.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Geo (Special Needs), a San Leandro Chihuahua/Rat Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Chihuahua/Rat Terrier for sale in San Leandro, or seeking a Chihuahua/Rat Terrier dog from a breeder in San Leandro.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in San Leandro 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 Leandro 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/Rat Terrier breeders who help with Chihuahua/Rat Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in San Leandro paves the way for another one to be saved.
