Lori's Story...

Lori is an extra-special girl who has been with us for quite some time. She was born completely blind and it does not seem to bother her one bit. Lori acclimates very well to new surroundings given a bit of time and encouragement. She loves other dogs once she gets to know them, but that also takes time. Lori will growl and fuss at new animals in her space, but as soon as she knows they are part of the "pack" she quickly becomes besties with them. The video included here shows Lori playing with Noelle, a 3 lb puppy also in foster care with her, and you will all get a kick out of it. Lori has had a complete dental, is heartworm negative, vaccinated, spayed, and ready for her future. She is 8 years old and weighs approximately 7 lbs with a beautiful chocolate coat. Lori just needs an adopter who will love her, be patient with her, be kind, and give her a chance. She has been hard to place because she is a tad growly to new dogs at first, but we promise that wears off quickly. She has no teeth, so she can't do any damage if she tries and will come out of her shell with a short period of adjustment. She has great potty manners and learns her new surroundings with ease. Please give this special girl a chance at a forever home.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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