Gunner's Story...
Skipper & Gunner

CUTE, CUTE, CUTE!! Is an accurate description of these precious and adorable little guys. They are so tiny and always together so it’s almost like having one dog. Skipper weighs only 3½ lbs. and Gunner is the heavy weight at 5 lbs. and they are approximately 2-3 yrs. old. We believe they are litter mates and have always been together and we really want them to always stay together. These 2 tiny little boys were intercepted by a rescuer just as they were brought into a high kill shelter by their people. The story goes that they worked long hours and couldn’t be with Skipper and Gunner and promised their child a lizard if he would turn them in at the pound. Skipper and Gunner were terrified and immediately scooped up and placed with a very loving foster family. After a quick adjustment they just settled right in and are now a part of the family, too. Gunner is more social and a bit braver than Skipper who has a tendency toward shyness and prefers to stay under a blanket where he feels safer. They are both very sweet natured and have a good temperament but Skipper can get more testy if he feels fearful. They are definitely lap dogs and cuddle bugs, and are very well behaved, quiet and not very “yappy” as Chihuahuas go. They are crate trained and sit together quietly although they ALWAYS (especially Gunner) prefer to be where their people are and are allowed to sleep in the bed with everyone at night. They go potty outside very well when given plenty of opportunities but sometimes have accidents and need a little work on “holding it”. Skipper and Gunner are both such loves and will do well in a home with other pets of any size and will adjust quickly, as there are large and small dogs in their foster home and everyone gets along great. Would you please consider taking these boys into your home; to be their forever family that will always love them and give them the attention they need and deserve so much?

Skipper and Gunner are both neutered, heartworm negative, and current on vaccinations.(AE)

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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