Banjo's Story...
Little black and white Banjo is a ten year old Chihuahua/Boston terrier mix weighing eleven pounds who is house trained, crate trained, leash trained, nondestructive, neutered, vaccinated, current on heartworm prevention, and has even had dental care! He's being offered for no adoption fee to an approved adopter. Banjo entertains himself with no destruction while the owner is at work. He's not into doggie toys, but likes to chill indoors. A soft pillow and ear rub keeps him happy. He's neutral toward other dogs, neither needy nor aggressive. Banjo lives peacefully with multiple cats at his foster home. He loves being petted and enjoys companionship with adult humans. He warms up quickly to a person who sits at his level and pets him, especially if they offer a food treat. Unfortunately, his doting owner is expecting a baby soon, so Banjo was surrendered to our rescue program. He enjoys short walks but doesn't need much outdoor exercise. There is evidence of cataracts forming on his eyes, yet he has functional vision and hearing. There are several papilloma-like benign warts on his back and legs. A quiet predictable home without young children who startle little dogs is recommended. He's good company for a retired person or someone working from home. He is happy leash walking for about one mile and enjoys car rides. Email petsavernc@bellsouth.net for an adoption application or to obtain more information. Life expectancy is about 16 years.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Banjo, a Chapel Hill Chihuahua/Boston Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Chihuahua/Boston Terrier for sale in Chapel Hill, or seeking a Chihuahua/Boston Terrier dog from a breeder in Chapel Hill.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Chapel Hill 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 Chapel Hill 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/Boston Terrier breeders who help with Chihuahua/Boston Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Chapel Hill paves the way for another one to be saved.
