Darla's Info...

I am already spayed, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Darla's Story...
Baby Darla was dropped off at Animal Control at only 7 weeks old with a hurt leg. Turns out, poor little girl has a hairline fracture. She's all splinted and is healing.

She's 8 weeks old now and is rearing to go! She's been eating and sleeping and playing with toys and the other dogs - She's all puppy! She can't walk yet because of the splint, but she scoots pretty good now! She can't wait for it to come off - she's chewing at it and rearing to go. When she starts walking she's going be quite the little handful.

Her personality - puppy! She also loves to be wrapped in a towel and held close to you with her head in your neck. So sweet!

Because of her leg she won't be able to go to any new home until about the new year. I won't send any dog home without being fully healthy. She also will be spayed and microchipped before she goes home. Because of her size, she cannot be adopted into any home with very small children.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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