Mittens's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, not good with kids, and good with dogs.

Mittens's Story...
Hi! My name is Mittens! I am a Chihuahua mix, and I weigh 7.3 pounds. I was born in August, 2010, so I am still a puppy!
I was found as a stray and brought to MaxFund by a kind person. Thank you, kind person! I’m sure that, with MaxFund’s help, I will find a wonderful forever family!

We Chihuahuas are known to be very loyal, intelligent, and loving dogs. We are sensitive, expressive, and empathic. In short, we are excellent and entertaining companions! It may be best for me to avoid living with children, as their boisterousness can be a bit scary to a small dog like me.

As a compact dog, I would be fine in a small or large home! I can be a bit barky, so an apartment or condo might not be the best for me.

Chihuahuas can be a bit clannish, getting along best with…other Chihuahuas! We like to think of ourselves as the Chihuahua Snob Club, tee hee! The person who brought me to MaxFund said I appeared to be okay with other dogs, but if you already have a dog, let’s plan to do a meet-and-greet to see how we might get along.

Because I am still a puppy, you’ll need to be prepared for the things that come with puppyhood. Whether a puppy will grow up to be a first-rate canine citizen is directly dependent on the effort that the family puts in. It’s my ambition to be the best canine citizen ever, so I’d like a family whose ambitions match mine!

Do you have the time and patience to teach me the things I need to know? Will you be around most of the time, so I don’t get lonely or bored? Will you watch me carefully, so I don’t chew up your shoes, electrical cords, or furniture? Will you make sure that I’m never in a yard unattended? Will you forgive my occasional “accidents” ? Will you take me through Puppy Kindergarten? Will you give me the best in nutritious foods, so that I’ll grow up healthy and strong? Will you give me lots of walks and supervised play and exercise? And most importantly, will you love me, forever and ever and ever?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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