Lizzie's Story...
Lizzie is an adorable little Chihuahua who weighs only about 4 pounds and about 6 yr old. She is good with other dogs around her size and does just fine with the resident cat. Lizzie arrived at a shelter in a cardboard box and when the lid was removed she came out growling. Poor Lizzie. We didn't blame her, though, as her tough act was her only defense. Lizzie was terrified there. But lucky for her, she had a friend at the shelter who instantly thought she was adorable and deserving of another chance. That shelter administrator called A Leg Up Rescue and we are so glad she did! Lizzie is indeed deserving of another chance. This little lovebug would do well in a peaceful home with someone who likes a little cuddle bug. But don't think she isn't spunky or playful - she's that as well! She can bounce around like a little rocket, and loves exploring the house and backyard. Lizzie could be fine as an only dog, or with a small dog buddy, but she would probably do best in a home without young kids due to her petite size. She is currently in a foster home where the resident dog likes to stalk her, and that's just not fun for Lizzie.

Please see our other available dogs at A Leg Up Rescue such as Meara or Miss Sunshine. A Leg Up Rescue must charge an adoption fee which is $200.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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