Pokey's Story...
Hello, my name is Pokey. The past few months, I have affectionately been referred to as “Momma”. I had 4 puppies on July 16th and have been busy raising them and now it’s time to prepare myself for a forever home.

I am white with black spots and considered possibly a Chi-weenie. I have short legs; however, with Chihuahua features. I now weigh 8-1/2 lbs. I’m just 1-1/2 yrs. old. I am a very nurturing dog and was a wonderful mom.

I came to Puppy Pals Rescue back in May after being dropped off at a shelter in KY. My owner had passed away. I came along with my two brothers (Coco and Freckles who have been adopted already). When I went in to a clinic to be spayed, we discovered that I was carrying puppies and was probably quite far along. PPR had a big project – prepare me, at only 1-year-old myself, for the delivery of 4 puppies.

That project was successful, resulting in the birth of 2 girls and 2 boys (with the loving care assistance of Auntie Becky Wells who helped me along!). Time has passed and my puppies are getting spayed and neutered and have waiting homes. They all are great puppies.

At first, I am a little on the shy side until I get to know you. I get along with other dogs and cats and seem to be okay around children – if my puppies are not in sight. I love to go on car rides and to run out in the backyard, dashing after the other dogs. I love to cuddle and have my belly rubbed.

I will be available for adoption after October 22th. I’m scheduled to be spayed on October 11. I’ll be completely vetted prior to leaving for my forever home. Adoption Donation Fee is $225.

I will need continuous help on potty-training. I’m not perfect yet - your time and patience will help. I would prefer to have a stay-at-home mom or dad - I get nervous when left alone.

A note from the foster home: Pokey will need a fenced-in yard.

If you have any questions please contact my foster mom at the link found at Fill out an application if you are interested in adopting me - you can find those at (Email my foster home and let them know you applied so they can be sure the application is received!)

I just can't wait to find a forever home! Thanks!!!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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