Maddie's Story...
Maddie came to us from a large scale back yard breeding operation with over 170 dogs in the home and in outdoor kennels. She was fearful and reserved when we first received her but after months in a foster home she has made leaps and bounds in the socialization department. She loves her foster mom and shares her home with a medium size pit/lab cross that she now sleeps with at night. Maddie is very laid back and is more couch potato than anything else. Below is a note from her foster mom: Maddie continues to make great strides and has been in her foster home for two and a half months. She no longer has trouble with submissive urination and is slowly showing more interesting in socializing with her foster siblings. Maddie is also showing more of an interest in taking short walks and is no longer fearful of her leash. Additionally Maddie has gotten along with all of her foster siblings who are patient with her and who do not crowd in on her space. Maddie would do best in a relaxed, low stress home where she can continue to blossom and with humans who understand her needs due to her lack of socialization prior to rescue.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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