Snickers's Info...

Snickers's Story...
Snickers is a snuggly sweet and adorable of a seven-year-old, eight-pound, male Cairn Terrier/Chihuahua-Mix with soulful brown eyes looking for a loving guardian.

Snickers is full of tail wags for everyone he meets, but he’s not much of a kisser. He is animated and personable. He is wonderful with other small dogs (not sure about cats). He’s great on leash; he enjoys only short walks when it’s cold.

He knows the command sit and will dance for a treat.

Snickers is pee-pad trained, sleeps in his own little bed in his foster mom’s bedroom and likes to snuggle in blankets.

He is looking for a home preferably with another small dog and without small children.

To meet and possibly adopt Snickers, please contact his foster mom Dawn at dgrana1228@yahoo.com or 312-296-9100. Snickers is very healthy, neutered, micro-chipped, up-to-date on vaccines and heartworm-tested. His adoption fee of $200 benefits the Friends of Chicago Animal Care and Control. He is being fostered in Lombard, Illinois.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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