Rico's Story...
Has your cocker spaniel been asking for a dog? This might be the perfect time to get one. Rico looks very low-maintenance. I bet he’s never even met a groomer.” (Gus, a cocker spaniel)

COURTESY POSTING: This is not a NorCal Cocker Rescue dog but posted as an effort to support a successful private rescue.

This young Chihuahua or Chihuahua mix came to my front door on Monday, September 24th. I believe he may have been left there. He is young, but not a puppy. He is housetrained and seems to like other dogs, people and calm children. He weighs about 8 pounds.

He is with me now, but I am hoping to place him in a foster home right away. I already have 4 dogs and three have serious medical conditions due to old age. I have a friend who will pay for his neuter and to bring him up to date on his vaccinations. I can provide the transportation and will make the arrangements for this to be done, if someone can provide the after-care. He needs to be indoors and supervised in a yard he cannot escape from.

Please email Beth at for information regarding Rico.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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