Mahalia's Story...
Mahalia is a sweet little girl who is about 2 years of age and weighs about 11 pounds. She is weening her litter and is thin due to keeping up with nursing. Mahalia is so lovable and loves to snuggle. She loves toys and constantly has her favorite of the day with her. She has been an amazing mommy, but is ready to take care of herself again and find her forever family. Mahalia does not like the temperature below 30 degrees, but other than that she is probably house broken. She will use a pee pad if necessary. Mahalia gets along with her foster siblings so well. She loves the 4 resident pups and the cat. She will be a great addition to any family.

Since we don't know at all what doggy genes are in the dogs make up (we don't know who mom & dad are!), we are guessing on breed and size when grown.

Please note that because we require a home visit at the time of adoption we can only place animals in homes within a 60 mile radius of Minneapolis.

If you are interested in meeting this dog or pup please fill out the pre-adoption application on our website at under Adopt and we will get back to you to arrange a meeting in the foster home.

We also have an Adoptable Dog Meet & Greet on Saturday May 4th at Fetch Delivers Warehouse at 2303 Kennedy St. NE from noon - 2 pm.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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