DARLA's Story...
DARLA (SRC #1168) is less than one year old, and was turned in to Animal Control by a mother and two children who had her for a short time. The mom said that she had wandered into their yard and they really liked her but they could not afford to keep her so when no one ever claimed her they turned her in at this Shelter. So this adorable solid black Chihuahua who weighs exactly 7 pounds has just been rescued from a local Animal Shelter and she is currently on medical hold until SRC has her fully examined and evaluated. She is such a cute little baby girl that has been thru a great deal of trauma already so SRC simply could not leave her behind even though we do not know enough about her yet to let her be released for adoption until she is completely evaluated and healed from all her medical procedures. She rode beautifully on her way to ANIMAL HOUSE VET HOSPITAL in RUTHERFORD COLLEGE, NC where she will be fully examined and vetted by Dr. E. J. Kennedy and his professional staff. Darla already walks very well on a leash and has made a great first impression for such a young little one! She shivered as we waited for her to check in at the Vet Hospital and at first I thought it was from shyness, yet when she was wrapped up in my coat close to my body so that she could get nice and warm, she cuddled closely and was perfectly happy! After all it was blowing a little snow on that day, and the air was brisk for such a dainty little girl. She appears to be most friendly toward anyone that is friendly to her. This baby-doll will be enjoyable to evaluate. If you are interested in this cute little baby girl, just keep watch on this site and information will be posted as soon as it is available. Thank you for your patience. SRC diligently strives to assure that each dog we place is fully vetted and evaluated for a minimum of two weeks prior to its placement in an adoptive home. When she is ready for adoption Darla (1168) will be heartworm tested, spayed, up to date on all vaccinations, and micro-chipped, plus her foster parents will give input as to her demeanor in their home so that her adoptive parent will have a better idea of the personality of their dog. Please keep in mind that once adopted EVERY dog still needs an adjustment period in their new home, no matter how well adjusted he or she becomes in their foster home.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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