Truvie's Story...
dob: 3/29/2006
Truvie was rescued from a full 'kill' shelter in western NC.
She is in great health, a true 'gem' and appears to have an 'old soul'. She loves being with her person, gets along well with other dogs and cats, is laid back and gentle in play and demeanor. What we 'see' in her past, is an older person with whom she kept constant company until they went into a nursing facility or, possibly, passed away.
She seems to favor the older generation...maybe, it's the speed of 'life' in which they navigate that she seems to favor.
Truvie would do well in a low energy home, possibly a quiet apartment/condo lifestyle, where she will get daily exercise along side of her person..perhaps, beachcombing, walks in the park, or to a quaint cafe' for that morning cup of' joe' and a good read under the sun's diffused rays.
Are you retired or work from home? Truvie says that you are her kind of 'furever' person, whom she would LOVE to devote herself to and keep company for the rest of her life.
Do you have a 'void' in your life? Well, sigh no more. Truvie is here to take away your blues and loneliness. Just give her half a chance to open up your life and heart to UNconditional love.
And, if you have a mission to help others, Truvie would make a great 'pet therapy' dog, who can accompany you on your visits to those in hospital or in need of a lift from a furry friend, as well.
Truvie's adoption fee is $250(includes spay, microchip & registration, all vax are current, as are flea/tick and heartworm prevention, all medical paperwork from day#1 with H4S, Martindale collar, health certificate and transport any 4th Saturday to all points N along eastern seaboard, as far as CT-Truvie is in foster care in Rutherfordton, NC).

We realize, in a logical perspective, that we are not going to be able to broadly change the World.
But, we know we can be an advocate of change.
We know that we can not rescue every animal in need, but little by little, we can help one animal at a time.
We know we CAN make a difference!

The adoption fee covers their medical costs associated with the animal, medical and daily care during their
foster period and transport.
All animals adopted by our group MUST BE spayed/neutered prior to finalizing the placement. Most of H4S's adoptables
are in foster care in Rutherford Co, NC and will be transported to your area on the 4thSaturday of each month, after
age-appropriate quarantine is complete and being spay/neutered and microcchipped.
Your signature below states that you understand any future medical costs are your responsibility and we have made full
disclosure regarding our & our vet's knowledge of the health of the animal.
Sometimes, for reasons beyond anyone's control, the adoption does not work out.

Howlin4Spirit drives transports along the eastern seaboard as far as NY state on a monthly basis.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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