Lucy's Story...
Lucy has a beautiful chocolate brown and white coat. With her gorgeous eyes, she caught the attention of the shelter staff immediately. An adopter showed up quickly to rescue her...but when tested, she was heartworm positive. Two year old Lucy had not been kept on heartworm prevention and in Alabama, that can be a very poor decision. Thanks to a FOR volunteer, Lucy is enjoying life in a foster home now and is receiving treatment for heartworm disease. She'll be good as new! She's a fabulous little dog, at only 8.6 pounds. She's estimated to be 2 years old and is SO easy to share a home with. Her buddy in her foster home is a Jack Russell Terrier and she enjoys playing around in the back yard. She's 100% house trained and doesn't need to be let out incredibly often. She also can do her business while on leash. She enjoys visitors but doesn't bark - a nice combination. She's easy to have around children and enjoys playing with her rope toy :). She's fine in the bath and isn't bothered by storms -- so water isn't a problem for Lucy! She's a special girl who needed help to get out of the shelter safely -- FOR is very happy to help her. To receive an application, learn more from her foster mom, and visit her - please email INFO@FORrescue.net Lucy is fostered in Boaz, AL

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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