StellaLuna's Info...

I am already spayed, purebred, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.

StellaLuna's Story...
StellaLuna was named after the fruit bat in the children’s book by the same name because her previous owner thought that she looked like the bat from that book. Make no mistake, Stella is the queen of the house. Even though she is small, she is bold and demanding. She takes a little time to warm up to new people and if pushed, can be a little nippy. Once she gets to know you, she is a love bug demanding attention all the time. She can be a little nasty to other dogs if there is something to compete over like food, treats or attention. Stella is 4 years old and weighs 5 lbs. Stella will need an experience Chihuahua owner.

One-on-one, she is a lovely, sweet little girl, ready to cuddle at all times. She is loyal, loving and a little beauty with a little blue strip going down her back to the end of her tail. Stella does get along with cats and other dogs but would do best being an only dog so she can get all of the attention and be a little Princess.

Stella is UTD on shots, on HW preventative and is spayed. She is not totally house trained but is very close and if kept on a schedule could be house trained very quickly because she likes to go outside.

Stella’s previous owner became disabled and did not feel that she could properly care for Stella anymore so she asked CRT to find her a forever home.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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