Murphy's Story...
"Hi there everyone...if you are looking for a really wonderful and very friendly Long-Haired Chihuahua-mix fellow, then look no further than my kennel. My name is MURPHY and I'm just 2 years old, and I am as cute as a bug...even cuter! I'm the perfect size, too, to be a great house or apartment dog. I love going for walks, love to cuddle and snuggle, and I have a terrific smile! I get along great with other dogs, and I'd make a wonderful family pet. I am in need of a new forever home that has a small yard so that I could enjoy myself and get some exercise, and I'd love one of those warm and snuggly dog beds of my very own in the house, so that I could always be close to my person or my family. The shelter staff isn't sure if I'm house trained, so they're still watching me to be sure. I love getting brushed and love sitting on laps. I'm a very happy fellow with a wonderful personality, and who knows...I just might be that wonderful little dog that you have always wanted and dreamed about. Won't you help me make my dreams come true for a new forever home with you? We can get to know one another in one of our great exercise yards they have for us here at the shelter. You can be sure that I'll be watching and waiting for you. So come by for a visit...and let's have some fun, and maybe you might want to adopt me and take me home with you. Hoping to see you real soon. Love, Murphy" Kennel #30

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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