Sparky's Story...

Sparky is a male chi mix. He is 2 yrs old and weighs approximately 9 lbs. Sparky loves people and is great with dogs once he gets to know them. Sparky is very vocal upon meeting new dogs. He barks and gets a bit growly, but he does not react or bite. He seems to try to assert his dominance vocally, more so with larger dogs. After about 5 or 10 minutes of making his point, he becomes everyones buddy. He is not yappy and does not bark often, but he does have a BIG bark for a little dog. Sparky would not do well in an apartment setting since he will be vocal about letting you know a stranger or another dog is too close to his home. Sparky has a lot of energy but is very sweet, happy-go-lucky, and fun!!! He just needs some socialization and a couple minutes to warm up to new doggie friends. Sparky loves kids and every other human he meets.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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