Facts about Scrappy

  • Breed: Chihuahua Mix
  • Color: Black
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
Hey there! My name is Scrappy! I'm a handsome chihuahua mix born in 2012 I currently weigh about 7 pounds.

For starters I like to play hard to get, I might make you work for my affection a little bit, but not to worry, I will surely make it worth your while! Plus, when you need to work for it, it feels that much more special and rewarding when you win me over. Initially, I come off pretty shy and require a little extra love and patience to warm up. (I'll give you a little tip, tasty treats really help speed up the process when it comes to getting me out of my shell. Yummm, my mouth is watering just thinking of some!) Once you've gained my trust I can promise you, you won't find a more loving companion! When I feel comfortable I'm a whole new dog. I will shower you with kisses and beg you to play with me! You see, I like to come off as this big tough guy, but underneath my exterior, I'm truly just a silly softy who wants nothing more than to be loved!

I'm also quite fond of snuggles and would be happy to be the little spoon for bedtime. I seem to do well with other pooch pals but would need to meet any other canines in the home to make sure we are a good match.

Ask the front desk to meet me! Once you see the charming fella I truly am, you'll want to take me home forever!

About MaxFund No-Kill Animal Shelter

About Our Shelter...

The MaxFund is a non-profit organization that was established in May of 1988 to provide medical care for injured pets with no known owners, and to seek out new homes for these animals once they have recovered. The MaxFund is a no-kill dog and cat shelter. MaxFund assists hundreds of people and animals each year by trying to make the correct match between owner and pet. MaxFund adopts our animals to Colorado residents only.

The MaxFund is a TRUE no-kill shelter. There is no pre-sorting of animals into "adoptable" and "non-adoptable" categories, discarding the so-called "unadoptable." The MaxFund takes every animal it has the space for. EVERY animal is kept until its owner is found or it is placed in a new adoptive home.

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption fees:

Cats: $25
Kittens (under 12 months): $75
Dogs: $125
Puppies (under 6 months) $200
Dogs over 8 years: $75

All applicants will be asked to submit the names and phone numbers of 3 personal references (relatives don't count), the name and phone number of your veterinarian if you have one, the name and phone number of your landlord (if applicable) and information about your current living situation. We also require that all immediate family members meet the animal prior to adoption to ensure compatibility. We would hate to adopt an animal into a family and later find out the dog doesn't like the kids or the husband doesn't like the animal, etc. You can print out an application on our website at

If you are interested in adopting a dog and have filled out an application, MaxFund will ask you to bring any currently owned dogs to the shelter for a “meet-and-greet” to ensure they can stand each other before they become a family. Because we examine adoption applications carefully and contact all references, same-day adoptions are extremely rare and should not be expected!
