Lia's Story...
My name is Lia. I'm a young chihuahua (only a year old) and I weigh 10 lb. One day my previous owner dropped me off at Chicago Animal Care and Control, and the very next day I found myself living with a foster family. Thank you Adopt-A-Pet!

Among my favorite things are cuddling up next to my foster mom, getting ear and belly rubs, and chewing on stuffed toys and my nylabone. I also like to chase after my toys and play tug-o-war. My foster mom thinks I'm super smart: for example, if I want a particular toy, I'll go looking for it - no other will do. I'm fascinated by bugs and butterflies. And I'm super energetic and fun to play with. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE running around with other small, playful dogs. I'm also very agile and like to jump over things making me a great candidate for agility training. If you're athletic, we'd make a great team. Typical of my breed, I'm a burrower: give me a blanket and I'll find my way under it and take a little nap.

I respond well to "No" or other disapproving sound and I do just fine in my crate. And while I like to be near my humans, I can do my own thing if they are busy. Since coming to my foster home I have made great progress on house training. So, if you can provide me with love, exercise and a little discipline (Cesar Millan says all canines need discipline), it won't be long before I become your best friend and loyal companion. And if you have another small doggy at home that likes to play, I think we'd all be very happy.

My adoption fee is $300 and it includes: vet exam, heartworm test (neg.), rabies, distemper and bordetella vaccinations, routine deworming, flea control, heartworm prevention, microchip and spay.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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