Additional info: This sweet girl was dumped at the shelter with another dog. She has clearly been abused and she needs a gentle, experienced person in a quiet, child-free home with a predictable routine to help her gain in confidence. She can be shy and scared at first and needs about a day to settle into any new place. Best to keep her harness on so you can catch her if she starts to do a "rocket dog" around your home. She is tiny and superfast and hard to catch! It doesn't take long to earn her trust and then she morphs into a loving, snuggly lapdog. She feels more comfortable around other dogs although she'll sometimes have difficulty reading their cues. She is pee pad trained but will go potty if walked outside. She has some separation anxiety and may be destructive if not crated when left alone. As long as she can see you, she will stay quietly in her crate and sleep through the night. This is a very special girl who needs a home with another dog or an owner who is often home. She is playful, hilarious and super fun.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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