Rudy's Story...
Rudy is a precious boy that we saved from the Los Banos shelter. He is about 8 years old according to our vet and is a shy, sweet little guy about 5 lbs. Rudy is a pretty quiet boy who lives with his foster parents and foster siblings. He gets along fine with all the other dogs. He enjoys riding in the car and going for walks but is afraid when walking in high traffic areas with lots of cars.

Rudy loves to snuggle next to you. Since he is a bit older he doesn’t play much but he will warm your heart. He does seem to bond to one person, so he may not be best for a large family home but great for a senior person wanting a companion. It can take him some time to get comfortable with new people. Rudy has not been around cats and has only been around children the ages of 10 and did fine with them. He is not a young child’s dog.

Rudy sleeps in bed with his foster parents and other dogs. He does not do well in the crate. He can be left in the home for about two hours but any more than that he would need to wear a belly band or be left in an enclosed area with tile (or something of the like) and potty pads. Rudy is doing well with his housebreaking but doesn’t really know how to ask to go outside. His foster parents generally take him out every couple hours. They feel he would do well with a doggie door where he could go in and out at his leisure.

Rudy would probably be OK in an apartment but it would need to have a small fenced yard as he really doesn’t potty well on the leash. Overall, he is a very loving little dog who really doesn’t like being alone.

Rudy is neutered, UTD on vaccines, microchipped, had a full blood panel and is heartworm negative. He had a dental in December, 2016 and has been started on heartworm preventative. Rudy’s adoption fee is $100 or $50 for seniors 65 and over. If you are interested in adopting this sweet little man, please complete an on line application at

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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