Alexis's Story...
Notes: 10-04-06 We have made a commitment to take this senior fur-kid from a vet that begged us shamelessly to do so. What we have is a sweet little girl that has been used for breeding and now needs a home that will provide her with the affection that she has never known. She is SO ready to be loved and to love!

This is the info. from the vet about Alexis-
Her name is Alexis, but we call her Lexie. She is about 9 yrs old. She was supposed to be a Chihuahua, as that is the breed the breeder said she was. She had been breeding her as a Chi, but she actually looks like a chi-terrier cross. Her ears tip down, at the tips, she weighs about 8 pounds, is light brown with a little white, & is a very, very sweet girl. She has beautiful eyes & a sweet expressive face. She's a little shy with strangers, but is quite curious & gets along very well with other dogs & cats (she ignores cats).

She is spayed (just last Monday) & has had a dental. She lost several teeth, & must eat canned food, but she has all her canine teeth, so her tongue doesn't hang out :) She is HW negative, & is fully vaccinated.

We will post a pic & more info. once received.
We will also take inquries on this fur-kid. If we have a qualified adopter & Alexis is still with the vet, we will ask that you adopt directly from the vet. We will save a life without putting the dog on a transport.

10-22 We notified the vet of the tentative date of our transport. We got this reply about Lexie-
"She has really come out of her shell. She has started barking a little at the kennel girls when they come up front b/c she likes them b/c they feed her! She also gets excited when her other favorite people arrive at work. What she likes most of all is to be sitting on someone's lap. The other day one of the kennel girls was holding her on her back & started rubbing her tummy; within minutes Lexie was asleep on her lap on her back.

She is a treasure, & we just love it that this wonderful dog has been given a second chance at life. She is just blossoming!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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