Facts about Storm & Doe - hoarder survivor

  • Breed: Chihuahua
  • Color: Black - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: POM JS
Storm & Doe are a special pair of Chihuahuas in need of the perfect special home. They are survivors from a home where a hoarder had thirty other Chihuahuas. They turned the first five in at animal control and because they were terrified they had no hope of rescue. We took all five and Storm and Doe (who are obviously bonded) are in a foster home together. After three months they are still very afraid of people. Storm will now take treats from his foster moms hand and both of them get excited and happy at breakfast and dinner time. They are crate trained and tend to stay in their crate with the door open during their days. In the evening when the lights go out they like to play with their toys and race around after each other for a bit having a great time. They are also paper trained and cannot go outside on a leash. They do not bite, if cornered so you can pick them up they are frozen in fear. We are hoping for a therapeutic home where their new family will love them and realize that they will not likely be lap dogs or leash dogs. If you pick Doe up Storm frets at your feet worried about her so it's imperative that they go to a home together. They have a much reduced adoption fee which includes their crate and all their toys. They are completely vetted, microchipped and spayed and neutered. They're estimated between 4-6 (Storm) and 2-3 (Doe.) If you have a heart for these poor munchkins and can offer them a happy and contented life with each other please apply. We would love to talk with you.

About Pooches & Purrs Cooperative - Portland

About Our Rescue Group...

Pooches & Purrs Cooperative is a group of rescues and individual rescuers that are working hard to find loving homes for the dogs, cats, kittens and puppies that find their way into our care through no fault of their own. Each individual or group has several wonderful dogs In Tennessee, Alabama or Kentucky looking for homes! All of them are completely vetted and neutered/spayed (if age appropriate) and on heartworm protection. All of them come with complete medical records. Their adoption fee of $500 covers their complete age appropriate vetting and heartworm preventative as well as their transportation to your area.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our rescues don't have an actual shelter building in the New England area. Due to this it is not always possible to meet them prior to their adoption. At times, a dog may be in foster care in New England and their bio will clearly be marked as such. These southern dogs & cats are brought up to their new owners weekly! We have a 14 day money back guarantee and the pet can be rehomed appropriately if things don't work out. Each group tries hard to get good matches in your homes so that everyone has a happy life together! To date the cooperative has placed over a two thousand dogs and puppies, cats and kittens in loving New England homes! Each group has many, many, references of happy adopters up in your area that can fill you in on their experience. Just email and they can pass along that information for your convenience.

Our Adoption Process...

We require an application, interview, reference check, home visit as well as a $500 adoption fee for a completely vetted pooch.

Our process moves very quickly so if you're interested in a pooch please apply today!
