Baxter's Story...
Baxter is a boy you just have to meet. Believe it or not, he's 9 years old! I know!!!! I couldn't believe it either. He's a precious, precious little guy - and hello? - he's reliably house trained! He's calm, affectionate and sweet. Baxter weighs 7 pounds and has a little heart on his left side. Apparently, a few years ago, Baxter had a seizure. He's been on phenobarbitol ever since. It's a very inexpensive medication. He get a half a pill twice a day and I've seen no seizure activity since he came into foster care but because he is on the medication, we are calling him a special needs dog. He and his brother came from a loving home and I have his vet records for his whole life. They were well taken care of. Consider meeting Baxter. You won't be sorry.



The adoption fee for Baxter is $200. Each of our dogs is up to date on all shots, including rabies, spayed or neutered, microchipped, fecal tested for internal parasites, treated if necessary, tested for heartworm, treated if necessary, on heartworm preventative and we also take care of dentals or any other medical needs they may have.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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