Sadie's Story...
My name is Sadie and I am 5 years old and a whopping 11 lbs of cuddles, kisses and love. I look like I could be a Papillion/Chihuahua (“Papichi”) mix, but since I was found as a stray wandering the streets of Chicago, this is really just a guess. I am currently living in a foster home with awesome foster humans and a rather large cat who I get along great with. We will even share a lap at the same time with no problem. I haven’t been around too many dogs yet, but have gotten along well with the ones I have met at the park with no issues.

My foster mom considers me the best cuddler in the world…I love to nuzzle your neck and give lots of kisses. I currently am allowed to sleep in the bed under the covers cause that’s where I feel most secure and I don’t take up much space at all. When not cuddling, I love to play fetch with my toys. My favorite is my pink crocodile (see my photo) that I try to take everywhere, even on walks! Even though I am in heaven cuddling, I do have quite a bit of energy and can be just as playful as I am loving. I walk very nicely when I’m wearing my harness and leash and I get to go on several walks a day.

Overall I am a quiet girl and don’t talk (bark) much except for alerting my foster family when someone comes to the door - so I am a good watchdog in that respect. It takes me a little bit to warm up to someone new, which they say is fairly typical of small breeds. But I do warm up pretty quickly and am never ever on the offensive. I have learned “sit” and my foster family has been training me not to beg at the dinner table, so usually I just lay down by their feet and wait patiently until they are done. They have even taken me to a restaurant where pups can be outside with their people and I did great with that!

You should know I am a bit of a "velcro" dog when I am with my humans – It could be because I was once abandoned and never want to be again…or it could be in my DNA. My foster family feels that I should be adopted into a home where I’m not left alone for long hours. If nobody will be home for more than 4 hours, it would be great if a dog walker could stop by for some playtime and a bathroom break, but I am completely fine sleeping through the night with no accidents.

So if you’re looking not only for a cuddle-bug, but also a little social butterfly and can take me places with you (I love going in the car), please contact Adopt-A-Pet so that we can meet.

My adoption fee of $300 includes: vet exam, heart worm test (neg.), distemper, bordetella and rabies vaccinations, routine deworming, flea control, microchip and spay.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sadie, a Mt. Prospect Papillon/Chihuahua dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Papillon/Chihuahua for sale in Mt. Prospect, or seeking a Papillon/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 Papillon/Chihuahua breeders who help with Papillon/Chihuahua rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Mt. Prospect paves the way for another one to be saved.
