RUSSELL's Story...
MEET RUSSELL.....LIKE MOST RESCUE DOGS RUSSELLS PAST IS A BIT OF A MYSTERY. WE KNOW HIS PREVIOUS OWNER WAS AN OLDER WOMAN WHOM SURRENDERED HIM, BUT THE CIRCUMSTANCES OF WHY ARE NOT KNOWN. WE BELIEVE HIM TO BE ABOUT 3 1/2 YEARS OLD. HE WAS VERY GUARDED AND TIMID WHEN HE FIRST CAME INTO RESCUE AND WAS EVEN NOT THRILLED ABOUT BEING HELD SOMETIMES. .BUT AFTER A LITTLE OVER A WEEK IN RESCUE HE HAS MADE GREAT STRIDES. HE SPINS IN CIRCLES WHEN WE GET HOME OR IF YOU CALL HIS NAME. HE RUNS THRU HOUSE WITH OTHER BIG DOGS . . I KNOW RUSSELL COULD BE A GREAT COMPANION TO THE RIGHT PERSON BUT LIKE MOST RESCUES HE WILL NEED PATIENCE DURING HIS PERIOD OF ADJUSTMENT TO A NEW HOME.. RUSSEL IS A SWEET LITTLE MAN. WHEN I SAY HIS NAME SOFTLY AND CALL HIM TO ME , HE LOWERS ON HIS BELLY, CRAWLS OVER TO ME, AND WHEN I PICK HIM UP HE GIVE LOTS OF KISSESS. HIS EYES TELL YOU HE TRULY DESIRES AND DESERVES TO BE LOVED

UPDATE ON RUSSELL 9/6/11: RUSSELL HAS BLOSSOMED INTO ANADORABLE LITTLE MAN. HE STILL HAS HIS EXCENTRICITIES BUT HE LOVES TO BE HELD AND LOVED ON NOW. BIG KISSER...

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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