Alvin's Story...
AAAALLVVVIIIiNN!!!! Alvin this and Alvin that! Gosh darn it, I’m tired of David always giving me grief like I’m some kind of trouble maker…sure, I like to have a good time, but I’m no trouble maker. In fact, I hold the Chipmunks together, and I’m the reason we earned a Grammy (yes, Alvin and the Chipmunks actually won a Grammy). Anyway, I’m so tired of him giving me grief that I’m retiring from the music game…I just want to be someone’s pet. Why not? I make an awesome pet…I’m super sweet, a great cuddler, I love other dogs, am good with cats, gentle and respectful kids are ok too…I’ll make the perfect lil lap warmer! And, you know how some Chihuahuas can be trouble makers? I’m not one of those…I’m a pretty well-rounded dude! Ok, sometimes I can be a little bit of a trouble maker… I could use some work with housebreaking…hey, I am just a year old- that’s practically a puppy still. I just need the training, consistency and structure I’ve never had before. No prob right? I’m an awesome dude, you should come down and see for yourself! 1 year old-9lbs. My adoption fee is $200 and includes; neuter, microchip, 1 month pet health insurance, reduced cost training class, free vet exam, leash/collar, toy & treat packet, food sample.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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