Peanut (Baby)'s Story...
Peanut is a typical Chihuahua in behaviour. She bonds quickly and likes to be with her person at all times. She is just over 6 lbs and is a young girl at approximately 1 – 1.6 years old. She would make a wonderful companion for a single person, is both trained to go outside and on newspapers. She would be great in an apartment, would love to go on errands with her new person and is small enough to be carried whenever needed.


Here is what her foster mom had to say:


Peanut is really a little doll and is the most affectionate, loyal and loving little girl. If you know Chihuahua’s then you know how they can become your constant companion – sleeping under the covers, sitting in your lap, walking proudly beside you. Peanut just wants love and to be loved.


This little girl came from a high kill shelter and we really don’t know how she ended up there but she was totally terrified. They said she was aggressive and sent her to rescue to be rehabilitated. It took less then 24 hours for her to be my best friend. Since that time she rarely leaves my side. She is hand shy but is coming around very nicely and had no issues with me picking her up, petting or anything else after only a few days. She is still afraid of strangers and although she will sniff their hands she really isn’t comfortable with anyone picking her up or petting her until she knows for sure they are okay. I have included one picture where she is sniffing the hand of a man she is just meeting for the first time. It seems that if I say it is okay, then she is okay.


She didn’t have a name and because of her small size I was calling her Peanut but most times I just call her Baby. She is very intelligent and like most Chi’s she thinks she is a little person and wants to be doing whatever you are doing. I have allowed her to sleep in my bed but have also crated her at night and although she will cry for a bit when left crated, she does settle. Of course her preference would be to sleep right at your side and with that there is no issues whatsoever.


Peanut is really an adorable little dog with very soft fur. She is easy to care for and really wants nothing more than to just be with her person. I have taken her out in the car and she is great. I have made her wait in the care while I stood nearby talking with someone and she just quietly watches out the window until I return. I tell her to wait and she does, trusting that I will be right back.


I have left her alone during the day with my other dogs and there has been no issues. She is also fine with cats and just totally ignores both of mine. She would fit into any household easily as long as you gave her a day to come around at her own pace and then like she was with me, she will be your best friend. I really love this little dog and can not understand how she ended up where she did at such a young age.


If you would like to give this little girl all the love she deserves, please submit an application for consideration.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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