Willow's Story...
Hello! My name is Willow but you should call me Shadow. I love to be by my people! I am a little peanut that wants to be close to my people and snuggle up in their laps. I am now looking for my FUR-EVER home. Did you see what I did there? When I am not snuggling I really like to play with toys. Some of them are the same size as me! I really like attention. When I think you are ignoring me I will go to extreme measures and climb on you and paw you and make you pet me! I won’t take no for an answer. Scratching just feels so good! I am such a little girl that sometimes bigger guys (humans and canines) are a little scary at first. Give me some time and I will come around. I love small dogs and gentle kids. They are just my size. We have so much fun together! I love playing with them in the yard. I am fully potty trained and I get to sleep in my very own crate at night. It is awesome. I decorated it beautifully. I am looking for my new home! Come see me! I promise to snuggle!

Willow is estimated to be 2.5 years old and 11 lbs. Since we don't know at all what doggy genes are in the dogs make up (we don't know who mom and dad are!), we are just guessing on breed.

All dogs are spayed or neutered prior to adoption. They have all had a vet exam, are up to date on vaccinations, have been given a dewormer, are treated for fleas, have a heartworm test if over 6 months old and are up to date on a heartworm preventative.

Please note that because we require a home visit at the time of adoption we can only place animals in homes within a 60 mile radius of Minneapolis.If you are interested in meeting this dog please fill out the pre-adoption application on our website at under Adopt and we will get back to you to arrange a meeting in the foster home.

We are also having an adoption event at R&D Bio-techne, located at 2001 Kennedy St NE Minneapolis 55413 on Saturday, April 29, from 12-2pm. Please bring a copy of your pre-adoption application.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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