Nico's Story...
This sweet little guy is Nico, a chihuahua mix that is about 7 years old and finds himself in need of a new place to call home. Nico had a home for his whole life but when his owner was moving and couldn't take him along, Nico was brought in to find a new family. Nico has a bit of a sad expression and it's easy to understand why. He didn't plan on having to start over at this point in his life but he's making the best of it and making friends every day. Nico was a bit scared and reserved at first but with a little coaxing and TLC, he came out of his shell and now enjoys getting attention and spending time with our staff. He's easy going and mellow while out for a walk and is eager to check out his new surroundings. Nico is very sweet and loves to be petted and just hang out in your lap. He isn't a fan of lots of noise and would love a more calm and commotion-free home. He is well behaved and housebroken too. Nico gets along just fine with dogs, cats and kids, and would transition quickly and easily into a good home with a great family that will give him all the love and attention that he deserves.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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