Shawn's Story...
Shawn is a purebred four year old Chihuahua. Originally purchased in a New York pet store...he lived his first few years in the Bronx. When his family moved to Florida...they decided that Shawn was one dog too many to own and they gave him up to St. Francis. His family taught him to go potty inside the Bronx house on pads...and not have to go out into the snow. His foster has been trying to teach him the joys of going outside to bask in the sun...but it has been going slowly as he really isn't a fan of the heat. Shawn is good with other little dogs and is loyal and loves belly rubs! He is a good watchdog and loves to follow you around the house. Shawn is also a little chubby...so if you love long walks...Shawn needs to be your companion so he can shed a few pounds and get ready for his summer Florida beach body! He is such a big love...and would love to be your new little man!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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