Riley's Info...

Riley's Story...
Riley is one of Rosa’s puppies, he’s about a year old Chihuahua mix (possibly some pug) and brought into Mending Hearts foster care from CACC on 10/13/16. He’s the biggest of all the puppies at a whopping 9 lbs 4 oz. Riley has been neutered, microchipped and is UTD on shots. He’s the leader of the pack but very timid when away from his 2 brothers. Because he’s such a little dog, we would prefer a home with older children and adults. Riley likes to mark his territory so he will need a family who has time to work with him on house training, he does most of his business outside but will need positive reinforcement and training at his new home. Riley seems to be the most scared and might benefit being in a home with another dog. He will need a new family with lots of love and patience to help him to meet his full potential.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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