MARTY's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, not good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

MARTY's Story...
Marty is a two year old, male Chihuahua mix that weighs around 12 pounds. He was listed at the Animal Shelter as rescue only because he was SO scared that he would snap at everyone. He is a super cute guy, but he was either teased quite a bit or spoiled by his previous owner. I have been able to get him to trust me in a short amount of time, but he is still "Cujo" to others right now. He will sit on the sofa with me and paw at my hand so that I will let him in my lap. Then he paws at my hand for me to pet him and love on him. He is just a cutie pie once you get past that front he puts on to scare people away. Marty is current on his shots, has been de-wormed, neutered and tested negative for heartworms. The right family for Marty would be one without small children and without lots of wild activity. An older couple that are Chihuahua savvy would be his ideal home. He needs to trust first and then he can be taught that other people are really very friendly. Please let us know if you think you fit the bill for this little devilish boy.

In the picture where he is sitting on the steps, he is sad because I made him "sit" for the camera, so he made his decision that he was NOT going to look at me so that I could take his picture. Yes he is spoiled.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Wilmington 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 Wilmington 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/Miniature Pinscher breeders who help with Chihuahua/Miniature Pinscher rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Wilmington paves the way for another one to be saved.
