Rico's Story...
Rico came from DuPage Animal Control. He can be a bit timid at first, like most chihuahuas. He would do best in an all-adult home, or home with children 12 years and older. He would also prefer to be in a home without other dogs or cats. He is believed to have been born in 2009 and currently weighs 10.4 pounds.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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