Trinket's Story...
Little Trinket is a sweet, spunky, affectionate lady looking for a warm, loving home. Trinket is a one year old long-haired chihuahua mix who was brought to ACL when a couple of Good Samaritans found her running in the middle of a busy street. She recovered well from that trauma, and she's been happily living in a foster home since. Her foster mom reports that when she falls in love you, it's for life! Trinket loves to be held, cuddled, and babied, but she's also sassy enough to hang with the big dogs. Trinket loves dogs big and small, and she'd do very well in a home with them or likely even cats. Like many chihuahuas, she is hesitant with strangers and can become protective of her family and space. She's more bark than bite, however, and once you're her friend, you're her friend - forget about it! Trinket is good with respectful children 8 and up, and she'd really love a home with someone who was around regularly to spend time with her and treat her like a princess!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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