George's Story...
Please meet George, a one-year old Chihuahua! Weighing in at only three pounds, George was surrendered while PFP was working Chicagoland Rescue Intervention & Support Program - CRISP.

He was barely alive when his owners surrendered him, and he spent three days at an emergency vet on oxygen and fluids. We still aren't sure what happened, but the vet believes he may have had pneumonia and extreme sun exposure. He gained over a half of a pound that week just from being on high-quality food. His foster has been using a humidifier to help his breathing with essential oils in it, and his strong antibiotics have helped immensely.

To be honest, we weren't sure if he was going to make it and had to prep our team for the worst. Then on Friday morning George started "talking." He was a completely new dog and now LOVES everyone! He finds safety in his eight year old human foster brother and likes visits from the resident 20 pound cat. George does have a heart murmur so he just needs to take it easy in his forever home :)

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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