Sandy's Story...

Name: Sandy

Gender: Female
Approximate Age: 4 or 5-months-old
Breed: Chihuahua cross
Weight: 5.5 lbs
Spayed/Neutered: Yes

Precocious and hilarious and entirely adorable: yup, that’s Sandy! She’s a sweet-as-pie 8-month-old Chihuahua cross puppy and weighs only 5.5 pounds. Sandy is great with other small dogs and older children. We haven’t yet observed her with younger kids or large dogs, but we do know that she’s very playful and curious around cats!

Because she’s still a puppy, Sandy will need a family that can help her continue to grow. She responds to her name and is in the process of learning her basic commands. And, true to a puppy, she’s all over the place when it comes to walking on a leash! We’re confident these are skills she’ll learn quickly with consistency and patience.

Sandy’s foster family describes her as being “full of beans,” so an active household would be great for her. Another dog to share her space with would also be wonderful! Sandy is happiest when she’s got her toys to play with and can’t wait to settle into her forever home with her loving family.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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