Jacques's Story...
Chihuahua (Apple Head)
1 1/2 years young
3.5 lbs (needs to be at least 5 lbs)
Male / Neutered

Oh Jacques did you get L-U-C-K-Y. While at Downey pulling Mama Marley and her pups, I noticed a teeny tiny little thing curled up on the corner of a neighboring kennel run. I was trying incredibly hard not to look at any other dogs (I wish we could save all of them…).

Well, I was weak and went over to check out this tiny dog. He was so scared, sad, freezing, shaking, hip bones and rib bones distinctly protruding. His kennel card said “CAUTION” and was underlined several times — a death sentence to an already petrified dog.

I immediately found a staff member and told them I wanted to see this scared dog. He carefully picked him up and handed him to me. He was so frail — just a bag of bones with big doey eyes. Despite being absolutely terrified, he was sweet and just wanted to curl up in my arms. Hands down this dog was leaving with me. He is now named Jacques and getting some much needed TLC.

At an emaciated 3.5 lbs, he needs to gain more than 50% his body weight. He seems to like other dogs, though he is currently living separately until he gets some much needed rest and recovery.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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