Elliot's Story...
Please meet our absolutely awesome dog Elliot. Elliot is a fabulous Chihuahua who is just the sweetest little man. He weighs a little over 4 lbs. and is about 7 years old. His small eye is a congenital birth defect. He cannot see out of it but it does not cause him any harm or issues. He does not know any different since he has lived his entire life this way. We think it is part of his amazing charm.

Elliot is the male dog of our dreams. He came into his foster home unaltered and never marked or peed in the house once. This is unheard of in the rescue world, in fact, I believe he is our very first. He is of course now neutered and still has never had an accident inside. I can’t even say that for my own male dogs. Elliot is crate trained and sleeps in a crate at night. He loves to lay in the sunshine when it’s nice and warm. His favorite activity is cuddling with his person and belly rubs. He loves belly rubs. He is completely potty trained to go outside but has used potty pads.

Elliot is good on the leash and loves to go for walks. He is good with other small dogs but does not play with them. However, he will snuggle up and sleep with them. We have pictures of him sleeping next to both kitties in his foster home. He loves kids and has been around them from ages 3-10. He likes to sit on their laps when they are on the floor but when they get loud he goes into his hiding place. Only calm children are recommended due to his small size. He can be shy around new people but he does let everyone pet him and hold him. He has a very loving nature.

Elliot can sit and lay down on command. He needs a very secure yard as he will find little holes in the fencing to escape. Elliot will not make a good apartment dog as he is a happy barker. He gets so excited that he likes to express his joy. He is just a great all around dog and we are looking for a special home for him because he is a very special boy.

Elliot is neutered, UTD on vaccines, microchipped, heartworm negative and started on heartworm preventative. He has also had a blood panel and a dental in September. His adoption fee is $150. If you are interested in adopting Elliot please complete an application at

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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