Max's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Max's Story...
Max is a great little dog in a foster home that is very fond of him. He is loving and affectionate; about 6 pounds and around 2 to 2 1/2 years old. On the small side. More doxie body than chi. So Max does have a little more energy, but not too much. He is house trained but must have a dog door. Perfectly leashed trained. Is initially afraid of strange men a little, but readily gets over it with treats.

Max loves kids... Loves them! He loves other dogs. Loves to play. It did take a week for him to become friends with the 7 pound female in his foster home He would not do well will older chis who don't play. He is also crate trained. Truly crate trained. Will stay in crate for any reasonable length of time without a peep. Will sleep all night in there too.

Max is a very happy goofy guy. He chases his tail, buries bones for later. Likes to be outside in the sun.

Please see our other available dogs at A Leg Up Rescue such as Owen or Oliver. A Leg Up Rescue must charge an adoption fee which is $200.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Max, a petaluma 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 petaluma, or seeking a Chihuahua/Dachshund dog from a breeder in petaluma.

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