Buddy's Info...

I am already neutered, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Buddy's Story...
Buddy is a 2-year old Chihuahua mixed with the Jolly Green Giant. Okay, so maybe it’s more like a greyhound, but something has to account for those absurdly long legs on a Chihuahua chassis!

Buddy lives in a house with another Chihuahua and eleven cats. If you look carefully, you’ll see cats in two of the pictures. (There was also a cat in the 3rd picture, but I cropped it out.) Buddy is a gentle soul and gets along with dogs, cats and any other types of critters.

Buddy loves to play with his Chi foster brother and the little black kitten he lives with. (See the pix.) He’s very fond of toys. He will happily sit gingerly munching on a toy, careful not to do it any harm. But his absolute favorite activity is to follow his fosters through the house wherever they go. . .including the bathroom! Buddy is a very loyal dog.

In addition to being respectful to other dogs and cats, Buddy has many of his house manners down. He doesn’t chew. He rarely barks. He marked a bit when he first came to his foster home, but then he stopped. (Also, he was not neutered then; he is now.) His house training is underway, but he will still need some work on this.

We found Buddy wandering on the streets nearly starved to death. Because of his hard life, he was not at all trusting of people and it took us days to reel him in. At first he would not have anything to do with his fosters, but over the course of a few weeks, this scared little guy has been coming out of his shell. He happily sleeps in the family bed snuggling up to foster Dogmom and Dogdad. He sits beside them on the couch and leans forward to be petted. He is eager to come to them to get a treat or a dog toy. He still does not like to be picked up, but he will tolerate it.

We’re looking for an adopter with just a little bit of patience to give him the time and love he needs to completely come out of his shell and behave like a normal dog. Because of his skittishness, Buddy would not make a good family pet—too much activity will scare him. But he would be an excellent dog for someone looking for a devoted companion—especially if they have cats! Once Buddy figures out he will be loved and cared for, he will become attached and loyal, and you too can have a dog who will stare up at you with loving eyes when you sit down to your business in the bathroom.

General Notes:
Our adoption fee is $225. All our dogs are spayed/neutered, current on shots, heartworm-tested and microchipped.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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