Elph's Story...
Sweet Elph is soooo precious! He is full of energy, but most of all, he is full of love to give everyone! Elph gets along well with others including cats !! He scares them a little with his excited barking and energy., but he won't hurt them. He thinks love makes the world go around! When we first spotted Elph in the cold, harsh very high kill shelter in rural Georgia , we knew we had to save him. He seemed so young, sweet and innocent. He was returned to the shelter because he had heartworm but he has since been treated and is considered a special needs adoption because of being post heartworm treatment. I was a good boy through my treatment and am ready to be adopted but the folks here want my new parents to be aware that they will need to restrict my exercise for a while so just leash walks for us and follow up with their own veterinarian to make sure my treatment was successful. He did well in the foster home with house-training so with consistency and structure he should do well in a home. He walked well on a leash and even liked to hold the leash in his mouth and walk myself. It is so funny! He loves to play with toys and run and jump. Please stop on by and visit and see if you would make a great team.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Elph, a Gloucester Chihuahua/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Chihuahua/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) for sale in Gloucester, or seeking a Chihuahua/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) dog from a breeder in Gloucester.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Gloucester 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 Gloucester 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/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) breeders who help with Chihuahua/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Gloucester paves the way for another one to be saved.
