Eustace's Story...
Notes: Eustace, shiba inu/chihuahua mix, 15 pounds, young male, 1 year

Eustace is charming and happily self-important in that way that only the smallest, cutest dogs seem to pull off. He simply adores being admired and has won over the entire staff of the vet's office with his marvelous personality.

Eustace is the type of dog who clearly sees the world as his oyster and he is the pearl of great price. He has a way of greeting everyone at the vet's office as if he is the host and that he is perfectly delighted to have them join Eustace's world. He seems very much like the type of dog who would want to greet each visitor to the house personally, then welcome them with great generosity after he has made sure that they are of good character. It will perhaps not surprise you to find out that Eustace clearly does not know he is 15 pounds, or that he is incredibly cute -- instead, we think he believes that it is his sheer force of personality that makes so many people become his willing servants, rather than his turned-up nose, chubby cheeks and large expressive ears.

Little Eustace ended up at the pound when he was inconsiderate enough to fracture his radius. He is now going to be splinted for about a month, and he is bearing this indignity fairly well, although not as perfectly as one might like. He does not like his bandage being changed and will get a bit cranky when the vet does this. However, considering the unbelievable amount of pain this must cause, this grumbling is completely understandable.

Because Eustace is a bit self-important, we suspect that he will be playful on his own terms. In other words, if you are looking for a small dog to play with small children, we can pretty much that Eustace will be a disappointment. Likewise, he will not enjoy the life of a toy dog who receives minimal exercise. However, in pretty much any other adoptive circumstances, little Eustace will surpass his adopter(s)' wildest expectations.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Rockville 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 Rockville 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 Shiba Inu/Chihuahua breeders who help with Shiba Inu/Chihuahua rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Rockville paves the way for another one to be saved.
