Bumpy's Story...
Hi everyone! I have just arrived in Calgary from the US on May 9th! My name is Bumpy (although my foster mom calls me Beans or Beansy) and I am an adorable TINY little Chihuahua with a docked tail (I am only 5 lbs!). I am a hit wherever I go as I'm so tiny and everyone wants to touch me, but I can be afraid of new people and may nip. It doesn't really hurt as I am so tiny, but for my own well being it would be better if I didn't feel stressed. I also get scared and nippy if there is too much going on, so I would do best in a quiet one-person household with no kids. I am good with other dogs, but as I am so small please make sure they don't squish me. I bark at the cats sometimes, but ignore them at other times - but would need to make sure the cat doesn't pick on me as I'm smaller then a cat! If I am in a quiet home with my person, I am the perfect dog. I follow you where ever you go and am your biggest fan. I will also give you licks to show you how much I love you! I also have double luxated patella, but my doctor said that surgery would not benefit me enough to be worth the pain or money to operate on me. I have rubber bow legged back legs, but never seem to be in pain. I am active (although only need short walks), extremely loving and house-trained and puppy pad trained. My adoption fees are $200. I hope you're looking for me to be your new best buddy, because once I get to know you, I definitely will be yours!
Please note that Little Mutts Rescue adoption fees are generally $400 for adults, $200 for dogs over 8 years old and $450 for puppies.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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