Facts about Pearl!

  • ID#: ps_24303148

Pearl is an 8 year old, 4lb snowy white Chihuahua with just a frosting of black fur! 

Pearl is extremely timid around humans and does not like to be picked up or petted on the head. We don't know her history but she does have many of the behvioral traits of a puppy mill dog that has been undersocialized with people. However with time she will follow her person around and once she trusts you, she will take treats very gently from your hand! Pearl loves the company of other dogs and we would ideally like to find her a home with another confident pup she can learn from. Pearl is pee pad trained but may forget her manners under times of stress so please be patient!

Pearl was rescued in LA as part of our Waggy West rescue mission to bring At Risk dogs, one by one to NYC for adoption! We are always looking for volunteer chaperones to bring at risk dogs like her with them on their next LA-NYC flight, we pay the dog's ticket and provide a carrier! Email waggytailwest@gmail.com if you can help!

About Waggytail Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Waggytail Rescue is a NYC based animal rescue charity dedicated to the rehabilitation and rehoming of small breed dogs.

We focus on finding permanent placement for animals in urgent circumstances, saving dogs from imminent euthanasia at over-crowded local shelters, West Coast and South East kill shelters.

Founded in 2004, Waggytail Rescue is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that has rescued over 5000 abandoned dogs and even a few cats and kittens! Through the tireless work of our many volunteers and amazing fosters, we are committed to continuing to find forever homes for New York's littlest strays.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Waggytail Rescue does not have a physical shelter location, all of our animals are in foster care in private homes!

The quickest and only way to meet a dog you are interested in is by sending a completed adoption application to waggyadopt@gmail.com!

Our Adoption Process...

Thank you for considering adopting one of our Waggytails! Adopting from us is a simple 3 step process!
STEP 1: Download and complete an adoption application (www.waggytailrescue.org) and email to waggyadopt@gmail.com. Applications will be reviewed by us and if approved we will put you in contact with the animal's foster who will answer any questions you may have.
STEP 2: The meet and greet, a chance for you and your other family members (human and non-human) to meet your potential new Waggytail! This is the time to determine whether a dog's personality is match for you and your other animals, and if you have allergies. Please don't wait until after adopting to really touch and handle a dog, skip the antihistamines and get those allergens all over you now!
STEP 3: To finalize an adoption, fill out and sign the adoption contract (www.waggytailrescue.org) and send a copy to us along with a check for the donation fee. Donation fees may also be paid by PayPal here.
