Rocket - foster needed!'s Story...
Rocket is a lover with people he trusts - and when he's not cuddling up to you, he'll keep you laughing with his antics. He's not especially energetic - in fact, one of his favorite activities is to be pushed around in a baby stroller - but he loves to spin in circles and loop-the-loop, and will also occupy himself by carrying sticks and pine cones around his foster family's property.

A pocket-sized 18 lbs, he was probably born in about 2007. He was picked up last winter on an empty stretch of Eastern WA highway in the middle of a snow storm, where he and his companion, a young female Rottweiler, had been dumped. This was not the first act of unkindness this little guy experienced ... He is afraid of men and can get nippy around strangers. But with women he trusts he is a sweetheart and a snuggler. His foster mom says he's "a real gentleman, and a joy to have around."

Like all Mikey's Chance dogs, Rocket will come to you neutered, microchipped, current on shots and treated for internal and external parasites. His adoption fee of $185 will help offset the costs of his care. He is living in a foster home near Portland, Oregon, but we will work with an approved adopter to transport him anywhere in the Pacific Northwest.

Can you offer this calm, loving little dog a quiet, happy home? Please contact us at mikeyschance@gmail.com for an adoption application and more information about Rocket.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rocket - foster needed!, a Seattle Chihuahua/Dachshund dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Chihuahua/Dachshund for sale in Seattle, or seeking a Chihuahua/Dachshund dog from a breeder in Seattle.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Seattle 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 Seattle 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/Dachshund breeders who help with Chihuahua/Dachshund rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Seattle paves the way for another one to be saved.
