Peanut's Info...

Peanut's Story...
This adorable little Peanut is said to be a yorkie-chihuahua mix, 3-4 years old, and weighs in at just under 5 pounds. If you look up CUTE in dictionary, you see her picture! She's a sweet, friendly, cuddly, gentle, affectionate little girl. Loves to give/get kisses - good company! She's good with other dogs, even larger ones, and ok with cats and kids too. She likes to be in your lap, but also next to her person. She sleeps quietly overnight in her crate (after 15 min. of whining), but also sleeps on couch or bed. She likes to be near her human, and will follow you around house, but will also explore on her own. She is good on a leash - but likes to cross-over in front of you while walking - careful you don't step on her 'little-cuteness' :) She appears to be house-broken (always 'potty's' when she's outside). She would do best in a home where she is not left alone for long hours. Because of her fragile size, no small children, please. All in all, a great little companion. What's there not to like??

Peanut's adoption fee of $400 includes: vet exam, heartworm test, DAPP (distemper combo) combination, Bordetella vaccination, Rabies vaccination, heartworm preventative, routine deworming, flea/tick preventative, dental cleaning (and some extractions), microchip and spay.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Peanut, a Mt. Prospect Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier/Chihuahua dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier/Chihuahua for sale in Mt. Prospect, or seeking a Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier/Chihuahua dog from a breeder in Mt. Prospect.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Mt. Prospect 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 Mt. Prospect 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 Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier/Chihuahua breeders who help with Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier/Chihuahua rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Mt. Prospect paves the way for another one to be saved.
