Eli's Story...
This little boy is Eli and he is just precious. He was a stray found wandering the streets and picked up by animal control. He was rescued from the high kill animal shelter by his foster mom at the very last minute before his time was up. He weighs about 7 lbs. and our best guess is he is 6-8 years old. Although it takes Eli a bit of time to warm up to new people, after settling in to his foster home and feeling secure, he has become a very loving, cuddly and playful little guy although he seems to get attached to one person--who then belongs to him. He burrows under a blanket for hours at a time and is happy sleeping in his crate or in the bed. Although Eli can sometimes have the protective and territorial Chihuahua attitude with strangers he is well behaved and playful, very bright and alert, and gets along with other dogs. When he gets really excited he dances around and sometimes runs in circles. Eli loves to lay in the grass in the sunshine and to go for car rides. He also LOVES to be carried around and is a perfect lap dog. He is smart, obedient, comes when he is called, and is crate trained. He does have an occasional accident if not given opportunity to go outside, but always feels terrible about it. Eli would be very well suited for an adult who could give him undivided attention with lots of hugs and kisses and his little head is so kissable! Can you be his forever person that will always love him and give him the attention and care he deserves so much? (AE)

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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