Ginny's Story...
Ginny came a looooong way to meet you! We had a wonderful adopter drive to St. Louis from Virginia to adopt a mother and daughter chihuahua pair that we had. While we were corresponding before they left to come here, the nice lady found out about a tiny chihuahua girl pulled from a shelter in Virginia, snatched her up, then brought her here when she came to get her girls. How's that for a commitment to rescue? Pretty awesome, I'd say. She was calling Ginny Bella but we already had a dog named Bella so changed her name to Ginny for... you guessed it... Virginia! I wanted to name her after the lady who brought her to us but she forbade me. While she was in Virginia, Miss Ginnybelle learned to walk on leash and was doing well with her house training. No doubt she'll need a brush up in a new home but she'll learn. We think that Ginny is about 7 years old and she weighs 5 1/2 pounds. She's gone through a lot in the past few weeks so she is still trying to process it all but she likes to be held and we think that she'll do well in a quieter home. Ginny is spayed, up to date on all shots, heartworm negative, on heartworm/flea preventative, is microchipped and has had a dental cleaning. She lost 5 teeth. Her adoption fee is $200. : Here are some excerpts from messages between her rescuer and me before Ginny got here - just to give you a clue as to her 'real' personality!:::::: She came from a dog hoarder who's house caught fire. The firemen saved her and the shelter was going 2 put her down cuz she was pregnant so Regina snatched her up. I was expecting full blown puppy mill syndrome but surprisingly she's not. As a matter of fact she's downright smart! She used her little "I'm so shy" routine to sneak close enuf to steal a tater tot off my plate at lunch! She's scared of outside and uses the weewee pad 50% of the time. She's not keen on the crate so I'm going to have to be creative about her potty training. She was walking around while I was in bed last nite and I had my hand hanging over the edge. She walked up and nudged me so I started petting her. Then I stopped and moved my hand over a little. She looked up at me the took a step closer and nudged me again so I did the same thing a couple more times. She has now decided that humans petting her is a good thing! She is making great progress quickly. One accident in the house but I was bein a lazy butt and didn't take her outside as soon as I got home and she got tired of waiting. She's excited to go on her walks as long as its not windy. She HATES the wind. Tried a few different dog foods. She likes Blue the best. She has also discovered she can jump up on the bed by herself. She also sleeps on a pillow by the bed and last nite covered herself up n the middle of the nite :::::: So there you have it - this shy thing is her schtick! She has the true chihuahua sass! UPDATE! Ginny's foster dad tells me that she is very low maintenance. She likes to ride in the car and is a great walking buddy.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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