Cooper (male) 9 MONTH OLD CHIHUAHUA MIX – UTD ON ALL SHOTS AND NEGATIVE FOR HEART AND INTESTINAL PARASITES – HOUSETRAINED!
CONTACT: dob135@comcast.net (preferred) or call 318-518-3520
Cooper was a stray that was on death’s door. Cooper is current on all of his shots and has passed a physical, been dewormed, poked and prodded and has passed all of his tests. He is a bite on his left jaw that is still swollen but has been drained by the vet and is healing. Cooper is on antibiotics for it. He is 10-11 inches high and 15-16 inches long. He weighs 14 pounds and is approximately 9 months old. He has not had a potty accident inside yet. We are not sure if he is an inside dog or an outside dog, but we keep him inside. He was severely malnutritioned when we found him about a week and a half ago, so he is still recovering from that but seems to be responding well. He has a very sweet disposition and needs a loving family who has time to really pay a lot of attention to him. He is extremely afraid of people and acts scared to death at this point, but we see him relaxing daily. He wags his tail when we come home, etc. We have not tried to train him because, at this point, he needs to trust people again. We can get his vet records and he has seen the vet only last week for another round of updates. I am of the opinion that he needs to be the only dog in the house, but I do not know how he will respond to anything once he is not so afraid. It seems that he has been abused or has had a really rough for 9 months because he is afraid of his own shadow. He is a great puppy, and does not potty in the house or bite or growl at us. Won’t you give sweet Cooper a loving, responsible home?

There is a screening and/or application process to adopt me and my adoption fee is a suggested donation to NINNA’S ROAD TO RESCUE, a 501c3 non-profit organization, of $30 so that they can continue their Adoption Assistance Program for area pets in need and to help assure I go to a good home. Once you adopt me, PLEASE get me spayed/neutered to help control the HUGE overpopulation and euthanasia rate in this area. Robinson’s Rescue low-cost Spay/Neuter Clinic (Shreveport) offers special low-cost pricing for spaying and neutering. Call 318-221-0017 for your spay/neuter appointment ONLY, not about me! Also, be sure to keep me on a monthly heartworm preventive. Dogs get heartworms from mosquitoes and the only way to protect me is with a monthly preventive that you get from your vet!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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