Letty's Info...

I am already spayed and up to date with shots.

Letty's Story...
We have Letty about 9 years old about 4.8lbs. She is so small, but she is a very good eater. She was underweight when pulled from the shelter, but appears to be plumping out a little in just the few weeks she’s been in her foster home. She was recently microchipped and fully vetted on 10-24. She was already spayed when she was very young, so we didn’t have to do any surgeries on her. She has a bad elbow from a past injury, and luxating patellas that she appears to have been born with, but she is used to finding her way around just fine. She is playful, runs around the house and even jumps up into the car or on the couch, so she doesn’t let these problems slow her down. The vet feels that since she’s not in pain and these issues do not slow her down or inhibit her, that surgery is not necessary, especially at her age; and the surgery wouldn’t unfortunately guarantee any benefit. She does well on the leash with a harness. Potty training is going good; she'll go outside if you take her, but doesn't ask yet and she also working with puppy pad training. Good with other dogs. No cats or childern at her foster home, so we are not sure how she would do with them. Will play a little in your lap, loves to snuggle, likes to sleep on the couch and does still sleep alot. Still alittle rough around the edges with commands and her name, but we are practicing.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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