Rio's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, not good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Rio's Story...
Rio used to be a scared dog, but with the help of fosters and his animal friends, he is quickly becoming socialized and happy. He remains a bit shy and requires slow and patient adult interaction. Rio has been trained in a household with 4 rescue cats and interacts very well with all of them. He loves to be outside on walks. Although he is only 14 pounds he can, and will jump high fences. Rio is definitely at his best when he is together with at least 1 other dog.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rio, a Valencia Fox Terrier (Smooth)/Chihuahua dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Fox Terrier (Smooth)/Chihuahua for sale in Valencia, or seeking a Fox Terrier (Smooth)/Chihuahua dog from a breeder in Valencia.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Valencia 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 Valencia 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 Fox Terrier (Smooth)/Chihuahua breeders who help with Fox Terrier (Smooth)/Chihuahua rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Valencia paves the way for another one to be saved.
