Tootsie's Story...
Hi my name is Tootsie and I am looking for my forever home. I am currently staying with my foster mom and she says I am an absolute dream. When I first came to the shelter I was devastated. I knew that being so old it was unlikely that anybody would want me, but my foster mom thought I was worth saving. If I stay too long, she is worried she may fall in love with me.
I may be an older girl, approximately 9 and only 9 lbs, but I still have a lot of spunk left in me. I walk well on a leash and pep up as soon as it is time to take a walk. I’m a little shy at first and bigger animals intimidate me, but once I feel comfortable, I am more willing to walk amongst them. I co-exist well with cats, dogs and even bunnies, but overly rambunctious animals scare me. Often times, if something scares me, I will simply sit in the corner and wait for you to notice I am missing. My very favorite thing to do is cuddle with my human. I love to help out with chores…ok, I don’t do much but I love to follow my humans around as they work.
I am well-mannered and my foster mom says she can tell I was once a very loved companion and she isn’t sure what circumstances resulted in me wandering around as a stray. I am house trained and would love to find my forever home.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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