Cholla's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Cholla's Story... -- My name is Cholla. I am a chi-weenie (Chihuahua Dachshund mix).

Don’t let my tiny size and big chocolate eyes fool you -- I think I’m 10 foot tall and bullet proof! Ask about the story of me holding off two pit bulls! Yes, I can be a saucy little girl, but it is all part of my charm. The flip side is I am a loving little princess who just wants to spend time with my humans and be loved on and pampered. My foster mom calls me Cholla Joy-a, because I make her laugh with my antics.

I was very sick when Valley Dogs first took me in, but they took me to a wonderful vet and with much love and attention I am all better now and just waiting for my new home. Could it be with you? I love to go for walks and explore the world outside, and to go for car rides. I also delight in curling up next to you on the sofa or sitting in your lap. Although I am kennel trained, I really prefer to cuddle and sleep with you at night – I promise I won’t take up too much room on the bed.

I live with 8 other dogs from big to small, and do fine with them, but since I am under 7 pounds, I would probably do best with dogs more my own size, or very mellow bigger dogs. I can be a little bossy at times, I don’t like being crowded, and I don’t always know when it is best not to push my luck in a canine argument, but I do not “start” anything – I just stand up for myself.

I love people and bond very quickly with those who show me love and kindness. Because of my tiny size, it is best I be in a home with more mature children who understand how to handle a small dog.

Would you like to meet me? Now that I am all better I can’t wait to find my forever home and humans all my own.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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