Facts about Sarge

  • Breed: Chihuahua Mix
  • Color: Black - With Tan, Yellow Or Fawn
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
Sarge is large and in charge! At least he thinks so! Sarge gets along with other dogs with a proper introduction. He is 8 pounds. He has not been exposed to cats, so we are uncertain how he would react to a cat. He walks well on a leash and once he gets to know you, he will allow you to carry him as he surveys his kingdom. He is about 2 years old and is very healthy. His original home was with small children, but we would recommend a home with older children or no children. Sarge is a true Chihuahua who needs a home where the Chihuahua attitude is understood. He has a large personality in a tiny package!

ARF'N primarily adopts only to residents in the counties surrounding Hernando County in central Florida or within a 60-90 min. drive from the Brooksville/Spring Hill areas. The reason for this is that we personally conduct home visits for each of our rescued pets to ensure they are getting a safe home.

The application can be found here:

Email questions to: We do not have a phone number to reach us.

Our adoption fees for dogs range between $150 and $250. All of our pets come completely vetted (spay/neuter, vaccinations, heart worm tested, on heart worm prevention, and a microchip).

ARF'N is a rescue operated by volunteers with full-time professional jobs during the day. We can't always get back to you immediately. Most of our rescue work happens in the evenings and on the weekends. It can typically take up to two weeks to go from application to adoption. More time is required for pets with multiple applications. We do not adopt on a first come, first served basis. We find the best match between pet and adopter. Please be patient with us through this process.

About Animal Rescue Friends Network Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

As a rescue group, we are Animal Rescue Friends Network Inc. We primarily rescue animals from Hernando County Animal Services and other Florida shelters to save their lives and find them forever homes.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our rescue is a foster home based rescue. Please contact us if you are interested in meeting one of our animals. We can either start the application process, or tell you the next location we will be for an adoption event. You may meet some of the animals available for adoption there before starting the application process.

Our Adoption Process...

Our fees are kept as low as possible to get animals vetted and re-homed into loving families as quickly as possible. We require an application. Once the application is approved, we perform a vet verification to make sure your pets are spayed/neutered, current on core vaccinations, and your other dogs are on heart worm preventative. We also confirm home ownership or a landlord approval. Finally, we do a home visit/meet and greet with the animal in your home. Once the home visit is approved you will be offered an adoption contract. Most of our dogs are offered for an adoption fee between $150 - $250, depending on age and breed. We have a few long-timers that will be offered for less.
