Sputnik's Info...

I am good with cats.

Sputnik's Story...
A handsome chihuahua/terrier mix with extraordinary blue-green eyes, Sputnik will be your satellite! No toy holds his interest as much as YOU do. He's a tiny little guy and does things on a small scale: pocket-size toys, brief runs in the yard, small meals. The biggest thing about him is his giant love for your lap!


From AKC Meet the Breeds®:
Chihuahuas are alert dogs with terrier-like qualities of self importance, confidence, and self-reliance. They are good with families if the children are gentle and patient. Because of their small size, they require little exercise and are good city dogs, but can be sensitive to cold temperatures. Smooth coated Chihuahuas need very little grooming due to their short hair.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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