Max's Info...

Max's Story...
If Max had a dating profile, it would say...

Me:

Chocolate Long Hair Chihuahua. 2 years old and a tiny 5lbs. High kill shelter survivor after being abandoned by my family because they didn't have enough time for me. Playtime extraordinaire and explorer of the great outdoors by day. Cuddle expert and profoundly good under blanket sleeper by night. I have a sweet spot for frisky, playful pups my size so if you already have another canine partner in crime who loves to play chase, you could be the one. I'm good with gating, crating and even enjoy time in a playpen so I have that part down. I use potty pads and doggy doors but since my first family didn't take the time to train me properly in housebreaking, I will need a patient Mom to give me a refresher course. I'm neutered, up to date on vaccinations, heartworm negative and microchipped.

You:

A loving, affectionate, patient Mom with a calm, laid back household who understands I come with a little emotional baggage after all I've been through. Men (and people wearing hats) make me nervous and I'm already shy when I first meet people so a ladies-only home would help me feel safe and secure. If you have a small, playful pup who is already a part of your life and you are home often so we have time for snuggling, we could be a match. Oh, if you have a green thumb, that would be great. No need to be a botanist but I would love to spend time outside with you in the yard, maybe while you garden.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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