Blackie is an 8 yr old male Chihuahua mix. He was adopted by a couple in 2011 that took EXCELLENT care of him, but unfortunately had to give him up due to failing health and he is now looking for another forever home. He gets along great with ALL people, and LOVES children. Does great with all other dogs, even large ones. Has been known to chase a cat once in a while, but while in foster care has learned to accept foster parents cat. He is completely HOUSETRAINED. He was taken outside regularly at his last home, and at foster home has adapted to using a "doggy door" to let himself outside. He is neutered and completely UP TO DATE on all vaccinations and has been kept on heartworm preventative his whole life.

About Humane Society of Wilkes

About Our Rescue Group...

The Humane Society of Wilkes is a volunteer organization. We do not have a shelter, but we work to rescue as many pets as possible from the county kill shelter. We are dedicated to the prevention of cruelty to animals, the relief of suffering among animals, and the education of the public regarding humane treatment of animals. We support these goals through our member dues, tax-deductible donations, and fund-raising projects such as our annual Best Friends Calendar and booths at the Brushy Mountain Apple Festival. With these funds we have been able to: place billboards around the county encouraging spaying and neutering of pets, provide Kind News subscriptions to all kindergarten, first and second grade classrooms in Wilkes County, and work closely with Wilkes County Animal Control to place pets from their shelter into appropriate homes. We also help to pay for spaying and neutering of pets for residents of Wilkes County.
