Jethro's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Jethro's Story...
Jethro came to us from our local shelter. Since he needed special care to get ready for adoption they asked us to take him and we obliged. Jethro is about 8 years old and he is a tiny guy about 4.7 lbs. He had some hair loss due to flea allergies but it has all grown back now. He is a happy, sweet and loving little dude.

He loves to ride in the car and chew on nylabones. He also loves to be in your lap. If you don’t want a lap dog then Jethro is NOT your dog because that is his spot. He is not shy with new people and loves to say hello. He has not been around children but we feel he would be OK as long as they are gentle children who don’t try to pick him up. He lives with other dogs and a cat in his foster home and is good with both. He doesn’t play with the other dogs in the home but he does enjoy their company.

Jethro is leash trained but does have luxating patellas. They are not bad enough in our opinion for surgery but he does need to be kept on glucosamine. Therefore, no long walks. Jethro is house broken and goes potty outside and does go to the door and ask to go out. As with all dogs he will need some retraining in his new home. Jethro sleeps in a crate at night and stays in a crate when his foster parents are not home. He is really just a gem of a dog and loves everyone, but he does tend to attach himself to one person.

He would probably be OK in an apartment but you would need to take him outside frequently to potty or train him to use potty pads.

Jethro is neutered, microchipped, heartworm negative and started on heartworm preventative. He has also been dewormed and flea free and UTD on vaccines. Jethro had a dental and a full blood panel. His blood panel showed that his kidney values were a little high so he will need to be on a low protein diet and have his kidney values checked about every 6 months or whatever your vet recommends.

Because Jethro is a senior his adoption fee is $100. If he is adopted by a senior his adoption fee will be reduced to $50 but you still must have the funds available to take care of his medical needs. If you are interested in adopting Jethro please complete an application at

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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