Nikita's Info...

Nikita's Story...
Nikita started her life in a puppy mill. A kindly veterinarian who tries to pull dogs out of that exiistence was able to get her into rescue. It was discovered that Nikita was heartworm positive. We did all of her vet work, her heartworm treatment, then retested her 6 months later - negative!! Nikita is a tall, thinly built chihuahua. She is about 3 years old and weighs 9ish pounds. Now she's in a wonderful foster home and learining to be a pet. This is what her foster mom says::Nikita is generally a mild-mannered dog. She seems to enjoy the presence of other dogs and will bark a few times out of excitement. She occasionally growls at other dogs, but that is short lived and she has never snapped anyone. She does not bark often. She gets along with both kids and adults. She is still nervous around people and does not usually take the initiative to approach people, but will sit next to people if picked up. Nikita seems to enjoy the presence of humans more and more, and joyfully wags her tail when we talk to her. Nikita had a lot to learn about simple things when she first came into foster care. She is learning to walk on a leash, but has not had many opportunities to practice because of the cold weather. Nikita recently learned to climb up the stairs and is starting to learn how to go down the stairs. She is not potty-trained yet, but is starting to understand the concept of going outside. She is a joy to have in the home and will make a great pet for families with children and/other animals.

Nikita is spayed, up to date on all shots, heartworm negative, on heartworm preventive and microchipped. Her adoption fee is $200.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Nikita, 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.
