Princess 2's Story...

Princess is a special little girl. The vet says she is only about 4 years old, in good health. She weighs about 8 lbs. She has a bad under bite; because of her misshapen jaw, her bottom teeth are in two rows. So she sometimes looks like she is scowling when she is not. She has trouble eating hard kibble; her tongue sometimes seems to work backwards and pushes food out. Canned foods are a bit messy for her, so we feed her the “burger” type dog food, Moist and Meaty. But she does love to gnaw on rawhide chews and doggie bones from the pet store.

 

 

 

Princess was rescued from an abusive home, but her rescuer died of cancer just 3 months later. The woman's husband kept Princess but pretty much ignored her and kept in a bedroom for most of the next 9 months until he had to move into assisted living and the woman's sister came to her rescue and contacted me about Princess. She is still fearful of crowds and other dogs most of the time, but is not nearly as bad as she was. She is sweet and, once she gets to know you, likes to cuddle or just lay beside you on the couch. She is not a big kisser. She will not be one to insist on your undivided attention, like many Chis do.

 

 

 

She loves to play and to cuddle when given a chance without any other dogs around. When she plays, she really mouths your hand a lot and growls ferociously! When other dogs are around, she hides in her snuggle sack in the bathroom. She is mostly housebroken, as long as we are around to pay attention when she says she has to go out.

 

 

 

Princess needs a calm home with NO young kids or cats. No exception on this one. One other dog would be acceptable if it's a small, calm dog. Once in awhile, Princess will play with another dog for just a few minutes. Rambunctious dogs terrify her. She needs somebody with the patience to give her the time she needs to get to know you and to be comfortable with you, and you will be rewarded with a loving companion.

 

Her adoption fee is $200. Contact Marlene in Spanaway, WA at chiwowwow@yahoo.com or crandr@chihuahuarescueandreferrals.com for more information.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Princess 2, a Seattle Chihuahua/Italian Greyhound dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Chihuahua/Italian Greyhound for sale in Seattle, or seeking a Chihuahua/Italian Greyhound dog from a breeder in Seattle.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Seattle 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 Seattle 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/Italian Greyhound breeders who help with Chihuahua/Italian Greyhound rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Seattle paves the way for another one to be saved.
