Henry's Story...
I am Henry, a timid little Chihuahua mix looking for a patient person and a warm lap. I am a sweet little guy, just unsure of strangers. If you take things slow with me I will warm right up, and even hop into your lap. I just don't like being grabbed at or reached for too quickly and I really am a 1 person dog (I love my person very much but not other people) so I need to find a home without children. I do well with other pets, but like to have my own space sometimes. I would love to find the perfect set of arms to cuddle in and a comfortable lap to curl up on - might that be you? 6 years old-12lbs. My adoption fee is $160 and include; current shots, neuter, microchip, 5 week Training Class, free veterinary exam (SE Portland/Milwaukie area only),1 month pet health insurance, leash/collar, food sample, toy & Treat packet.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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