  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn
  • Age: Puppy

Hi everyone, my name is Casper. I am a very sweet and super cute 8 month old Chihuahua who along with my brother Farley, ended up in California shelter. We are already homeless just as our lives are beginning.

When Farley and I arrived in the care of HALDR we were both very thin - every rib and vertebrae was visible. But despite my low weight I am a healthy and energetic pup. Now that I am getting lots of good food to eat I have put more meat on my bones and am now at a great weight and have a very healthy appetite. Nevertheless I am not a voracious eater and can be free fed without gobbling down all my food.

I am a quick bonder and it doesn't take me long to feel attached to a new family. Once I do I am very loving and affectionate and will want to be by your side as much as possible. One of my very favorite things is to be picked up and held or to sit on your lap. I am very loving and affectionate with my family and will greet you with a very joyful enthusiasm when you return home - or even if you just left for five minutes. Like all dogs, and especially puppies, I don’t like being left home alone for very long and will whine for about ten minutes before settling down. I would best in a home where I will not be alone too long during the day.

While I can happily share my home with another dog, I am not good with cats‎ as I very much enjoy chasing and barking at them. I am good meeting other dogs on walks but if they bark at me I will bark back. While I am fine meeting unfamiliar women on my walks I can be nervous meeting men I don’t know and may bark at them. But my foster mom has been helping me calm down and I am making good progress. I am also good with children but for my own safety I can't live with very young ones. Because of my extra small size small children could easily hurt me in their playful rambunctiousness.

I am very smart and learned how to sit and lay down in just a couple of days. I am now being taught to stay and am catching on very fast. Anyone who has owned a Chihuahua knows how difficult we can be to housetrain. Not me! I am housetrained and pee pad trained. Even though I am still a puppy, I can hold my bladder for about five hours during the day and am able to hold it all night.

As I am still a puppy I very much enjoy chewing on treats and toys, as well as anything else I might find on the floor that looks tasty. Until I get beyond the chewing stage you might want to do a bit of puppy proofing around the house, unless of course you would enjoy having me aerate your leather shoes or slippers for you. Also typical of puppies my age I am full of energy one minute, then snuggling up beside you for a cuddle and nap the next.

I am very healthy and happy and full of joy, affection and adoration. I will fill my new home with love and laughter. I am neutered and up to date on my vaccinations. My adoption fee is $500.

About Home at Last Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Our volunteers are dedicated individuals who have joined together to form a new rescue group. We are commited to helping dogs in need and to provide them a second chance at a happy life.

Our dogs are not kept in a shelter. We depend on the support of caring and compassionate people to care for our dogs until we can find them permanent, loving homes. We provide vet care and rehabilitation to all of our dogs.

Our Adoption Process...

If you are interested in adopting a rescue dog, the first step is to search through the list of our dogs currently available for adoption. All dogs remain on Adoptapet and our website (homeatlastdogrescuebc.ca) until an adoption is finalized so all dogs listed may be applied for.

Our job is to find the right home for each of our dogs. We will contact you to arrange for a home check at your convenience. Unfortunately, many of our applications are rejected, not necessarily because there is anything wrong with the home, but because it is not the right match for the dog. Following a successful home visit, we will arrange for you to meet the dog, usually in their foster home. At that time, you will decide if you would like to adopt the dog.

Before an adoption can be finalized, we will ask you to sign an adoption contract. Depending on the dog’s personality you may be asked to visit the dog once or twice before taking him or her home. This will be most common with shy, timid dogs. Outgoing and confident dogs can most often be taken home after the first meeting. Documentation for each dog will be provided upon adoption. Adopters must be ready to pick up their adopted dog home as soon as they have been approved and have agreed to adopt the dog. Home At Last Dog Rescue BC cannot hold dogs for people who have applied but are not yet ready to accept the dog into their home.

Please note: an adoption fee is required for successful applications. The adoption fee is non-refundable, even if the dog is subsequently returned. Home At Last Dog Rescue BC will always take back one of our dogs for any reason, and without question. Adoption fees for our dogs vary. The price varies based on the age and medical needs of the dog being adopted; costs are judged on a case by case basis.
