Sophie's Story...
Hello! I am a sweet, 4 year old Chihuahua Corgi mix. My name is Sophie and I weigh 12 lbs. I am a timid little girl but I warm up and bond very quickly. When I get to know you my face will light up when I see you and I promise that I will make you feel you are the best person in the world (which of course I will think you are)!
I appreciate it when people to approach me quietly and gently. I am a little more timid of men than women but I like men well enough. Some children make me feel nervous so it would be better if there are only adults and children over 12 years old in my immediate family. I have lived with both cats and dogs and we got along fine.

I haven’t had much experience walking on a leash but I am catching on quickly since coming to MaxFund. The kind volunteers are taking me on walks using a harness with a leash and it is becoming really fun! I especially like it when someone crouches down in front of me and I can run up to them and get petted! I very much enjoy playtime and tug-a-war with a soft toy is a good game too. I suffer from a hip condition so I can’t run up and down stairs or make any high jumps (the folks at MaxFund can tell you more about what physical limits I have).

I am paper trained so I am housetrained but, of course, not yet to use an outside bathroom. However, I am sure I could learn. I used to sleep with my person on their bed and I have not spent much time in a crate (kennel). I get very attached to my special humans and I can be quite protective of them. I bark when I hear intruders just so they know they have a dog to deal with should they pose any threat!

I miss my person and I am looking forward to having a forever family so I can love and cuddle them. Please don’t hesitate to come by and meet me. Just maybe you’ll want to take me home, which is of course is my choice!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sophie, a Denver Chihuahua/Corgi dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Chihuahua/Corgi for sale in Denver, or seeking a Chihuahua/Corgi 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/Corgi breeders who help with Chihuahua/Corgi rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Denver paves the way for another one to be saved.
