Lady's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Lady's Story...
Lady Bird is a 5 year old Brindle colored long haired chihuahua. She came from a "breeding/hording" situation out of Idaho. She is very timid. But I have been able to win her trust. So I know that it is still in her to be a loving and affectionate pet. She will need someone that is very patient, understanding, and willing to work with her.

From the time she came to my house to the time that I could actually pet her without her running away was about 6-7 weeks. She will now let me reach down and pet her and pick her up and snuggle with her. She is really good about potty out side. But in case I don't make it home in time I do put down potty pads and she will use them.

She is now protecting me and will bark at anyone that gets close to me. We are working on "No Barks" and she still has a ways to go on learning that command.

Lady sleeps through the night in her own little bed. She does not like being on my bed.

She has lost some of her teeth, but is still able to eat kibble that is small. I also will give he some wet food each morning. She loves treats, but will not take them from strangers.

Lady doesn't play with toys, but she will get the "zoomies" and run around my house and yard, and run in circles. This is her fun.

Lady gets along with my other dogs and she doesn't mind my cat. She will play with my tea cup chihuahua.

I do not recommend her with children under 10. She has been tested with my grand kids and she was hiding and barking at them 'a lot'.

She would be happy in a quiet home with another animal.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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