Puddy's Story...

Puddy is a 4 year-old 17 pound chi-min pin mix.  She is full of personality and loves nothing better than snuggling with her person - she can be a bit like velcro.  Puddy came to us from a chaotic home situation (with possible abuse) and can be a bit skittish when she first meets new people and cowers when offered treats.  She is good with other dogs, but she will probably do best in a quiet home where she can get the attention she craves and continue to learn to trust humans.   Puddy does like to play with other dogs and her people but shows little interest in toys. 

Puddy will require patience and a gentle hand but will be very loving, affectionate and loyal.  She is crate trained and house trained, although she will sometimes resist going out on her own in cold weather and will instead sneak out of sight to relieve herself.   Up until coming into foster care, she was kept outside in the cold so likely she has some fear of not being able to come back into the house.

Puddy is a very quiet girl and could live in an apartment. She doesn't need much space, just a warm lap to snuggle in and lots of love (and treats).

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Puddy, a Ripley 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 Ripley, or seeking a Chihuahua/Miniature Pinscher dog from a breeder in Ripley.

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