Benji's Info...

I am already neutered, purebred, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, and not good with kids.

Benji's Story...
Benji came to rescue when he was abandoned in a rented apartment that someone vacated. We think that Benji is about 3 - 4 years old and he weighs only 3 1/2 pounds. He's as cute as can be but truth be told, he's a bit of a brat but we kinda like 'em like that. Benji will not be adopted to a home with children as he is very, very tiny and, well, a brat. He needs to go to a home with a mom and or dad who are willing to put up with and train away his Inner Stinker. He gets along with the other dogs in the house just fine. Benji is a burrower. We found a bed for him that is similar to a pillow with a pillow case. He likes to be covered up. Benji is not a foodie. He's thin and I believe that he will stay that way.


Benji is neutered, up to date on all shots, microchipped and on heartworm preventive. The adoption fee for Benji is $200.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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