Facts about PeeWee

  • Breed: Chihuahua Mix
  • Color: White - With Brown Or Chocolate
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
PeeWee is a 14.2 pound(at the time of his neuter on 6/28/2017) chihuahua. He was found as a stray and after a few weeks of finding him and searching for his owner, the man who found him brought him to us. We also attempted to locate his owner without success so now PeeWee is searching for a new home and family. PeeWee is the perfect size for a family who wants small but not too small. He is a sturdy little boy and would do great with older children after an initial adjustment as he tends to be a bit shy and unsure at first. He does warm up quickly though and enjoys attention. PeeWee did test positive for heartworms at his vet visit so we will be starting him on ivermectin (a micofilaricide) which will kill any babies and will eventually kill the adults because they will not be able to reproduce and continue the life cycle. PeeWee's new owner will need to continue with his treatment monthly until he has a negative heartworm test. Although heartworms can be scary if left untreated, they can be successfully treated with the ivermectin and relatively inexpensively as well (it costs no more than regular preventative every month and we hope that new owners would keep their dog current on their prevention each month). PeeWee is a nice boy who just wants a family. He will make a nice traveling companion and will also do well as a lap dog-watching TV with you and enjoying the time you are able to spend together. PeeWee will fit into any home environment. PeeWee's adoption fee is $200 and will help to cover his vetting and cost of care while with us. If interested in giving PeeWee his forever home, please submit your interest and application via email or call us @(352)493-1255 to learn more about PeeWee or to set up a meet and greet with him. If you have any questions about HW treatment or ivermectin, please feel free to ask.

About Paws & Claws

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a small rescue started in September 2004. To date, we have adopted out over 250 dogs and cats who may not have had a second chance. We rescue the majority of our pets from kill shelters and have them thoroughly vetted prior to going to their new homes. All of our pets are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, heartworm checked(dogs) and dewormed. We also microchip our dogs so that they can always find their way home. Big and small, we work to rehome them all. We are always in need of donations so if you can help us to help our pets, please contact us! The more people who get involved, the more pets that we can save! You can also see our pets and/or fill out our adoption application on www.petfinder.com. We look forward to hearing from you and making that "forever match"!

Come Meet Our Pets...

We operate from our home so our pets can be seen by appointment only. Please call or e-mail(prefer) to schedule a time to visit.

Our Adoption Process...

We require an adoption application to be filled out and approved prior to any adoption. Our adoption fee for our dogs is $125.00 and up and for most of our cats that still require vetting it is $75.00. We currently have a special adoption fee for our cats who are already completely vetted(spayed/neutered and UTD vacc )You can adopt one of these kitties for ONLY $25.00!!! If for any reason a pet that you adopt can not remain with you, we require that the pet be returned to Paws & Claws to be rehomed.We do NOT give refunds for any reason so please consider adoption carefully before you take a pet home. We also ONLY accept CASH as payment for our adoption fees.Our main requirement to adopt is LOVE! If you can offer love to a needy pet, please consider adoption. Your reward will be a devoted friend for life.
