Bo's Story...
Bo is a Chihuahua mix, possibly toy rat terrier. He is about 5 yrs. old He is a big boy at 18 lbs. He is on a strict diet to lose at least 8-9 lb. Has already lost 1 lb. Apparently his previous owner equated food with love. Needs somebody who can give him lots of exercise through play and walks. He likes other dogs, kids, people of all ages. A great family dog! No idea about cats. He does try to play with the other dogs, and is frequently seen attacking stuffed toys and tossing them around! He does have a stubborn streak, though. Bo is neutered and up to date on shots.

Bo was found wandering a mall parking lot. When this guy opened his car door, Bo just hopped right into his car like he belonged there. The man was unable to keep Bo since his schnauzer did not like any other dogs and kept attacking him. He was unable to locate Bo’s owner, so contacted us.

Bo’s adoption fee is $250. He is being fostered in Spanaway. Please contact Marlene at or, if interested in Bo.

We do not do same day adoptions unless you are pre-approved. Adoption application with references checked & a home visit are required. We do many special events during the year, so check our calendar on our website:

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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