Pinto's Story...
This little bean is Pinto, 1-2 years old and weighs in at 9 pounds, small in stature but big on personality and smarts. He is proving to be a responsive and respectful gentleman (gentledog). With just a little dose of guidance, Pinto is picking up desired behaviors quickly already learning the basics like come, sit and stay! Pinto is crate trained and has been trustworthy while in the house, “asking” to be let outside. Pinto is quite the snuggler – he will happily nestle under a blanket and curl in a lap for a comfy nap. Although he may be a little guy, he is more than willing to take on the job of keeping your yard squirrel free.

Although not yet tested with children, we think he’ll do well, but he would need children old enough to know how to treat a dog with respect. Also, if you might be considering a pair, you might want to consider adopting Gonzo, his foster roomy, as they get along quite well.

Pinto's adoption fee of $300 includes: vet exam, heartworm test, DAPP (distemper combo) vaccination, bordetella vaccination, rabies vaccination, microchip, deworming, dental cleaning and neuter.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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