Facts about Frosty

  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
Meet Frosty. This totally cute and totally amazing guy is the first dog from the hoarding case to be posted ready for adoption, and we couldn't be any happier. Frosty is an 8-year-old, 12-pound, long-haired chihuahua who is such a fantastic little guy. If you are looking for a sweetheart cuddle buddy, Frosty might just be your guy.

Frosty has been living in a foster home with two cats and two dogs of a similar size. He does great with all of them. He doesn't necessarily need another dog in the home as long as his person is available often. He hasn't been around children, but as there is not a mean bone in his body, he would do fine with children who know to go slow and to be patient with him. He isn't a fan of noise or chaos--another point to be considered for his forever home.

If you ask Frosty's foster family, they will tell you that this "little nugget is the sweetest and most loving creature on the face of the Earth!" and "He is an angel!" He does have something about him that makes you swoon. It could be the constant pitiful look he gives. Whatever it is, it works in order to have people wrapped around his little finger (toe?). Frosty would probably prefer a fenced yard where he can walk around and explore on his own terms. He isn't really into leash walking yet. He doesn't like a collar nor a harness and only makes it one house away before he belly's up and protests his walks.

Frosty is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative, and microchipped. He is housebroken and crated trained. It took a little adjustment to get him to this point, but he has recently gotten into his groove and is doing great. He does cry when the crate door is closed (when left home alone), but does enjoy the safety and coziness of the crate when the door is open. Frosty has had some dental work done and is missing a couple of teeth. He will require a soft food diet.

The adoption fee for Frosty is $125. The first step in the adoption process is to complete the application in the link below. After his applications are reviewed, we will arrange meet and greets.

About PawSwaP of Greater Lafayette

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a rescue/ rhoming service that provides education and assistance for owners in our community to keep pets in their home. When that is not an option or we come across animals in need, we will take them into our foster-based program, work with them, seek all necessary vetting, and find them the perfect home.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do various adoption events in the community. If you would like to meet one of our available adoptables, please email us!

Our Adoption Process...

The first step in the adoption process is to complete the adoption application on our website. Once we have reviewed the applications, we will contact the potential adopters to arrange a meet and greet. This can take several days depending on the popularity of the animal.
