Opie's Story...
Meet Opie, a 9 lb. Chihuahua. At 3-4 years old, Opie is a super sweet little guy who’s happy all the time. His owner’s situation has changed and she cannot devote the time to him that he deserves, so she asked us if we could help to rehome him.

A little about Opie – he’s a little social butterfly and he loves going places in the car as well as for walks. He knows “sit” and “lay down” and he knows them even better if you’re holding a treat in your hand. Typical of his breed, he loves the lap and he likes to burrow under the blanket. He’s a little spoiled as he’s used to sleeping in bed at night with his person. Opie is comfortable around children and small dogs…larger dogs too, if they don’t bark at him.

Opie is mildly special needs as in the last year he had a few seizures, so he’s on a low dose of inexpensive medication which is working well. And we're told by the vet that this should not affect his lifespan. So if you have a great big heart, maybe you won’t mind this extra little bit of care. Opie is a lovely little dog who deserves a family and, ideally, a backyard...and the more laps, the better…older children would be a plus!

Opie’s adoption fee of $140 includes: vet exam, heartworm test (neg.), rabies, bordetella and distemper inoculations, routine deworming, flea control, heartworm prevention, microchip and neuter. There is no additional charge for the cute polka dots on his underside.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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