Rosa's Story...

Approximate Age: Between 10 and 12-years-old

Like a fine wine, some things get better with age and Rosa is no exception. She’s a sweet senior Chihuahua who came to us overweight, so we’re working with her to shed her extra pounds! Because Rosa is new to our rescue, we haven’t yet had the opportunity to gauge how she is with cats, kids, or other dogs.

Rosa hasn’t shown any need for discipline, nor has she shown any behavioural issues while in our care. Because of her excess weight, she’s a bit hindered while on stairs. We hope that, with some weight loss, Rosa will gain more mobility, so she’ll need a family willing to work with her on her diet. She is great on a leash and is in the process of learning her basic commands and responding to her name.

What better and more comfortable place is there to be than in one’s comfy bed? It’s Rosa’s favourite spot, and she’d be happy ruling her roost from the comfort of that spot. She’ll be best in a home without other dogs and a family that is focused on loving and caring for her will be her best bet at enjoying her golden years. Rosa can’t wait to meet the forever person who’ll promise to love her always.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rosa, a Barriere Chihuahua dog 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 dog 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.
