Joey's Story...
Joey is a male, neutered, tan and white chihuahua who has 3 legs and gets around just fine! Joey is under 10 lbs and he is about 8 years old. He was originally adopted locally with 4 legs. His foster mom was asked to go to shelter and look at dog and imagine her shock to find out it was one I had entrusted to someone and he had only 3 legs now. She knew that it was him by his reaction and that he recognized his name. He has had surgery to correct his amputation and is doing fine. He gets along with other dogs and is ok with cats too! He likes to go out to use the bathroom and come straight back in. He would rather snuggle than play. He rides well and is well behaved in the car. He would be better with a stay at home person or someone he can go everywhere with. Older children over 12 would be ok. He's just a little peanut who deserves a good home. He also loves to wear clothes that keep him warm in the winter.

Our dogs are mainly fostered in TN at our parent rescues . We have many wonderful dogs looking for homes! All of them are completely vetted and neutered/spayed (if age appropriate) and on heartworm protection. All of them come with complete medical records. Their adoption fee of $425 covers their complete age appropriate vetting and heartworm preventative as well as their transportation to your area.
Our rescue doesn't have an actual shelter building in the Maine area. Due to this it is not possible to meet them prior to their adoption. Our dogs are brought up to their new owners weekly! We have a 14 day no questions asked money back guarantee and the dog can be returned to us if things don't work out. We try hard to get good matches in our homes so that everyone has a happy life together! To date we have placed over a thousand dogs and puppies in loving homes from Tennessee clear up to Canada!
We have many, many, references of happy adopters up in your area that can fill you in on their experience. Just email and we can pass along that information for your convenience.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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