Zachary's Story...
Zachary - is an 11 year old neutered male Chihuahua whose owner passed away after a long illness. Unfortunately, during his owner's illness some of Zachary's needs were neglected. His toenails were extremely overgrown and his teeth were in very bad shape. Upon arriving Zachary's nails were trimmed and most of his teeth required extracting. Zachary's lab work looked good and he seems to be in very good health otherwise. He does need to eat soft foods only. Zachary is a timid at first but very curious and loves everybody. Even when he is in a new environment and a little nervous his tail never stops wagging and he's happy to be loved on. Zachary would do well in a quiet home where he can be someone's beloved lap dog but he also gets along well with children and other dogs. Overall, he is a giant snuggle bug in a pint sized body. Zachary is current on his vaccinations and has tested negative for heartworms.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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