Stitches's Info...

I am a special needs pet, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Stitches's Story...
Update: Stitches had three seizures and is now on anti-seizure medication. We are going to try to wean him off it after 3 months and see if the seizures return. It's possible the seizures were a one time thing. If the seizures come back, he'll likely have to be on daily seizure medicine.
Stitches may be the cutest dog we've ever seen! He has a crazy overbite and his face is a bit pointy, but he makes it work. Stitches loves to be held even though he wiggles and tries to hug you. He is great on a leash and a compact model - he'd be great for an apartment dweller. We think he's around 2 years old. We think Stitches would do okay around cats. He does take some time to warm up to you, we think he was a backyard dog or maybe just completely ignored before we got him.
Status: In foster home

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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