Cricket's Story...
***CRICKET HAS BEEN PLACED ON A MEDICAL HOLD. SHE COULD USE YOUR DONATIONS FOR HER CARE. She was playing with a toy in her foster home - she plays on the carpetted floor throwing the toy in the air and pouncing on it. She broke her leg playing on the floor and went to the ER vet ($600). She went to a specialist and had surgery ($3,300) to fix her break - now she is recouping and awaiting a furever home. ***

More About Me: Meet Itsy Bitsy Cricket. Born December 26, 2011 – she’s just over 4 months old, about 3 lbs and sweet as can be.Cricket is a darling little pup. She loves her person and enjoys to be held and cuddled. She loves to cuddle up with you and be close. She has also been found hiding and cuddled up in obscure out of the way places – such as the doggy toy box. She is working on her leash skills and doing quite well on housetraining. She is also doing well with her crate training. She does ride well in the car. She likes other dogs but does prefer smaller sized dogs that are close to her size. Cricket is a tiny little thing and is simply adorable!

FOSTER UPDATE
Cricket is about the cutest and sweetest little dog ever. Potty training is going well, she will run outside on her own when she needs to potty – although sometimes when it’s raining she needs a little encouragement getting outside. She’s a very loving little puppy and her fave place (unless she’s outside sunbathing) is wherever her foster mom is – she loves to be held and cuddled and naps are always best when they’re taken near you. She enjoys a good game of fetch with one of her soft toys, loves sunbathing with her foster bro on the back deck and car rides. She is crate trained and doing pretty good on her leash training – we haven’t walked too far but seems heading home is her favorite part of walks. Her foster mom has 3 dogs of her own and she’s fine with them and would do great with another small young dog. No children under 12 and fenced backyard a must – she’s a very small and curious little puppy – so seal up any holes and stock up on chew toys before she comes home with you!

History: Cricket has arrived from a vets office where she was left because her owners have been homeless and living in tents and on the streets. NWIPR was asked to bring Cricket into rescue and find her a great home. We are so glad to have her join us in rescue.

NWIPR IS AN ALL VOLUNTEER REGISTERED NON-PROFIT 501c3 PUBLIC CHARITY
Your adoption donation is used to care for and vet the many dogs that enter into rescue from overcrowded shelters where their time is running out-ultimately they are on death row. Your adoption donation goes directly to the care of the many dogs that enter into rescue. All dogs leave rescue vaccinated, sterilized, microchipped, wormed, flea treated, and medically checked out. In some cases they receive dentals, ear flush, surgeries, and so on to ensure that they are healthy and ready to be adopted. Your adoption donation is very much appreciated and needed to help care for the many needy dogs that enter into rescue. New adopters receive a FREE exam coupon at a local veterinary clinic in Lynnwood OR a $30 care voucher to a veterinary chain (so be sure to ask about these coupons if you are interested).

NOTE: Please do not email for more dog info. This is all the info available until approved application is received and then you can talk directly to that dog's foster home for further info. Thank you!

NWIPR's adoption process includes completion of an adoption application, a vet check, screening, in person meeting, a home visit and a lifetime adoption contract. NWIPR is the pet's advocate and will select the most suitably matched home for the dog's general and unique needs, therefore adoptions are not done on a first come first serve basis. We reserve the right to refuse service and adoption for any reason.

PLEASE NOTE: The information contained within this pet's biography is based on observations from the current foster home. NWIPR is very honest about the pet's behavior and needs (and provides up to date information), we cannot guarantee they will behave in the same manner in a different environment with new owners as individual household dynamics vary greatly.

CONSIDER FOSTERING A DOG
***Do you or someone you know have the desire to help a rescue dog? If you have a loving heart, dog experience, a safe and secure yard and the notion to make a difference, please consider fostering a rescue dog. There are MANY dogs that we just do not have room for and just one person can make a world of difference to a dog that needs a safe place to rest his or her weary paws.....***

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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