Wes's Info...

I am already neutered, purebred, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.

Wes's Story...
Wes is a sweet little guy that we pulled from a local shelter. He wasn't doing well there but little dogs often fail at shelter life because they are overwhelmed and scared of all of the noise. Often, once we get them into a home environment, things change and this was the case with Wes. He was turned into the shelter by an owner who was moving where dogs weren't allowed. He's a more laid back chihuahua, preferring to lay at your feet and asks for the occasional pet. He still has moments where he's a little timid so we think that Wes would do best in a home without small children, a more quiet life would suit him well. We think that Wes is about 2 - 3 years old and he weighs about 9 pounds. We use wee wee pads here and he's doing well with them. We think that he would transition to 'going' outside easily. Wes seems to like going for walks. He met one big dog once who was pretty excited to see a little guy and I think that intimidated Wes. He was snappish with the bigger guy so no big dogs, probably.

Wes is neutered, up to date on all shots, heartworm negative, on heartworm and flea preventive and is microchipped. His adoption fee is $200.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Wes, 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.
