Brenda's Story...
From the foster:

I'm just starting to see Brenda's personality, she's still very skinny and unstable on her feet but that is getting better. Can't climb steps yet but she is trying. She is very deaf. Doesn't bark or fuss at all. Some little yowls if she is happy or excited. If she doesn't see you there is no response.

She's very sweet, no aggression. She's shy but affectionate once she feels safe. Lots of tail wags and kisses. Loves to be carried, just wants to follow you around. If she's left alone in a room she just goes to her bed and goes to sleep. She's indifferent to other animals. Just walks away from them. She's intimidated by my dogs but they are large. She adores riding in the car. Full of wags and little yips. Likes just roaming around the yard and sniffing.

I take her out on a schedule. She's house broken but doesn't bark so has no good signaling system.

An ideal home would probably have no large dogs or young kids. Unless she gets a lot stronger. Definitely fragile at this stage.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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