Pepito's Story...
Pepito is estimated to be three years old. He is a mystery mix, but our best guess is a Chihuahua mix; mixed with what? We don’t know. He is black and tan and is about ten pounds. He was found as a stray in San Bernardino and was taken to a high kill shelter where he was rescued and brought to Oregon. Pepito is quite shy and he has clearly had to fend for himself for some time. He is in a foster home and is slowly learning to trust people and learn what it is like to be a part of a family and sleep in a house. An ideal home for him would be one in which his people understand his need for space and trust building. He is a sweet dog once he gets to know you and trust you, but his people will have to earn his trust. He is a good dog for someone who wants to experience the challenge of working with a true “rescue” dog and has the ability to commit to him and help him through the process. His foster mom reports that he is making a lot of progress, but an adaptation period into a new home is always to be expected for any rescued pet. Pepito is good with children, good with other dogs, is neutered, current on all vaccinations and is microchipped. While Pepito would not likely hurt a cat, he likes to chase them and this would be too stressful for a cat in someone’s home, therefore, we recommend a home with not cats for Pepito.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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