Abu's Info...

Abu's Story...
Hello, I’m Abu. I’m a medium sized mix of about everything small breed. My foster family did a DNA test! I’m about 8 months old and pretty much done growing at 30 lbs. I would have to be 300 lbs if I ever was to grow into my ears! Ha!

My personality is as unique as I am. I love going for rides and hanging with a friendly pack at my foster house and sleeping curled up in the bed like a cinnamon bun and running off with the ball when the labs want to play fetch. I’m joyful, and fun loving and curious, and all around a great pup. However, new situations scare me. I need a big buddy to hide behind and observe. I really need a dog to take cues off of about life and really should not be an only dog because of my nature to be scared of new situations. After a day or two with a new situation, I come out of my shell and become the fun loving goof that I am.I am fully vetted, neutered, microchipped, and potty trained.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Abu, a Homewood Mixed Breed (Medium)/Chihuahua dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Mixed Breed (Medium)/Chihuahua for sale in Homewood, or seeking a Mixed Breed (Medium)/Chihuahua dog from a breeder in Homewood.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Homewood 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 Homewood 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 Mixed Breed (Medium)/Chihuahua breeders who help with Mixed Breed (Medium)/Chihuahua rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Homewood paves the way for another one to be saved.
