Joel's Info...

Joel's Story...
Joel is sweet, albeit a little shy but very loving boy! He is just a teeny little guy so most of the world is quite a bit bigger then him so we're not surprised that he's a bit scared of things. What he is not afraid of his love, laps and petting! These things he can't get enough of. We haven't tested it yet but we are pretty sure that Joel could actually sit in your lap for the entire day!

Joel is working through his shyness with the help of our loving volunteers. We're not sure many of them let his cute little paws actually touch the ground though! He gets carried around a lot and of course he is thrilled with that arrangement.

Joel is looking for a permanent lap or laps to call his own! While he appreciates all the love and cuddle time with the volunteers, it's just not the same as a home of his own. Leisurely walks around the neighborhood are good for him. Another small canine friend would be fine too. His biggest request is a life of love! He promises to give it back tenfold. So if you have what our little man is looking for, please complete an application for him today! He's eager to hear from you!

Joel weighed 6.3 pounds when we saved him from the kill list.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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