Leia's Story...
Little Leia could put the sunshine in the gloomiest of days. She lights up the room with her happy grin, waggy tail, and playfulness. She is a very good snuggler and would love to have a very special human in her life. She especially loves belly rubs and will want to sleep in your bed. She weighs only 10 lbs and her white coat is becoming glossy now that she is on good quality food.

She plays for hours with her squeaky toys and entertains her foster parents every night. She loves to go for car rides and we know she will want to take many rides with her people. Visits with children who are gentle while playing with her would be fine, but she wants to be the baby in the family, so we are looking for an adult home for her.

She will likely be the class clown in a basic obedience class which we recommend to help her bond with her new owner. She will be ready to go to her new home in early May. She is spayed, vaccinated, housetrained, and on heartworm preventative.

The first step in applying for one of our pets is to fill out an application. This in no way obligates you to adopt. It helps our foster parents learn more about you, which helps them determine if the pet would be a good fit for your situation.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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