Piccino's Story...
6/7/16. Piccino is a great little dog that came to The Nest from a local animal shelter. He was adopted from there a while back but the owners decided that they wanted a large dog now. Piccino is your typical chihuahua - very feisty, full of attitude, bossy with other dogs but at the same time super sweet and snuggly. Piccino is very small - he weighs about 4 lbs. He is so delicate that he needs a home with NO children under 18. He loves to be with his person and cuddle but is not really clingy. He loves running around in the yard and curl up on a cozy dogs bed. Piccino can be protective of his home and will bark (with the occasional ankle nip) at strangers that walk in the door. Once he meets new people he is just fine. He gets along well with other dogs, he likes to play with dogs about his size. He is fine with cats as long as they don't run from him, then he can be aggressive. For Piccino we are looking for a more quiet and calm home environment as he is easily excitable. We would like a securely fenced in yard. Other dogs are fine as long as it is not more than two. They should be no larger than 15 lbs.
Piccino is neutered, he is current on vaccinations including Rabies, he is on flea/heartworm prevention and he is micro chipped. If you are interested in adopting this little cutie please fill out an adoption application on our web site:
An application has to be filled out prior to setting up a meeting.) Piccino's adoption fee is $200. No children under 18 please.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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