Moose's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, and up to date with shots.

Moose's Story...
Small dog people...look no further! I'm a good little dog and though I've had a really rough summer, my foster parents say I've handled it very gracefully. Here's what I can tell you about me since the day a nice Adopt-A-Pet volunteer pulled me out of a big city pound where I didn't have much of a chance.

I didn't feel well cuz I had an upper respiratory infection - she thought that was the reason my eye was swollen and teary. But my wonderful foster parents realized there was something wrong with my eye, and sure enough, I had to have eye surgery to repair a deep ulcer. I'm all healed up now and ready for my permanent family to find me so we can start the rest of our lives together.

The vet thinks I'm about 6 years old and I weigh in at 10 lbs. I'm a sweet, affectionate little chihuahua who loves to be with people....great with kids and I like pretty much everyone I meet. I know "sit" and "leave it" and can easily learn a lot more with consistency and proper motivation (like yummy treats!). I'm hoping a family or a person who is isn't away for long hours will adopt me as I'm a little nervous about being abandoned again. I like my crate and I like to sleep in (great if you do, too!) and I am potty-trained. Top things I love...cuddling, laps, going for car rides and long walks, too.

So if you're looking for a mini-companion who will for sure get people talking to you because of my good looks and charm, please come and meet me.

My adoption fee of $275 includes: vet exam, heartworm test, DAPP (distemper combo) vaccination, bordetella vaccination, rabies vaccination, microchip, deworming and neuter.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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