Missy's Story...
Please go to to complete an adoption application.

Life is good and life is happy! My name is Missy and that is my motto. The day my life changed was the day I was left on the side of the road. I didn't quite know what to do, but I knew I had to stay put to protect my family. I was a new momma and my former people just left me and my babies on the side of the road. When my rescuers found me and pulled up to see if I was OK, they saw me sitting next to a box. When they opened the box, they found my four puppies inside. It was just before Christmas and very, very cold but I would not leave my babies. No way, I am a loyal girl and would not leave the kids alone. So, the nice people picked us up and took us to a shelter where they named me Mrs. Paws. Three of my babies were adopted right away but my one girl, Noel, was with me through the holidays just waiting for a miracle. Good things happened again when we came to Finding Shelter. We were saved and able to be saved together! Now I am living in a foster home and have a cozy bed and cozy couch and no worries in the world. It is a nice change to be babied and loved. I can't wait until my forever family finds me. I promise to be the very best girl and your very best friend.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Missy, a Norristown Chihuahua/Fox Terrier (Smooth) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Chihuahua/Fox Terrier (Smooth) for sale in Norristown, or seeking a Chihuahua/Fox Terrier (Smooth) dog from a breeder in Norristown.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Norristown 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 Norristown 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/Fox Terrier (Smooth) breeders who help with Chihuahua/Fox Terrier (Smooth) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Norristown paves the way for another one to be saved.
