Abby's Info...

I am already spayed, purebred, and up to date with shots.

Abby's Story...
Abby is estimated to be about 7-9 years old. She loves to play fetch with her toys and her favorite thing in the world is going outside for walks. Between walks, she can always be found waiting for a cuddle with her human friends or napping in her bed. She is friendly with most people and other animals, but can be a little picky about who she warms up to right away. She currently shares her foster home with a cat. They often greet each other with curious sniffs, but mostly coexist without much interaction. Abby tried to play with her feline friend, but he was afraid and ran away. She is still learning how to get on a bathroom schedule, but knows how to use a pee pad if confined to her bathroom space when her foster parents are away but she usually makes it through the night without needing to use it.

Abby is spayed, UTD on shots and on HW preventative. When she was spayed it was discovered that she had bladder stones. These were removed but she will need to remain on a special food to prevent the formation of more bladder stones. She has had a dental also.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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