Nigel's Story...

This dog is eligible to have its adoption fee waived if adopted on the June 1st Maddie's Adoptathon weekend. Please apply early as all other steps of the adoption process, home check and meeting family, need to be completed by June 2nd.

Meet Nigel, a unique tan and white, 8-pound, 2-3 year old Chi mix with an amazing under-bite, giving him a most distinctive look. Nigel gets on well with other dogs, big or small. He lets people approach him and loves the attention. Nigel is house-trained and will use a peed pad if he can't wait until his foster parent gets him outside. He can be left alone during the day but would certainly love the companionship of another dog. Nigel is a bit under-weight and is slowly adding weight with his favorite snacks of bananas, carrots and eggs. Basic manners training would benefit Nigel. Training would be a great bonding experience with Nigel and for his new people.

Nigel is looking for someone to love him, work with him and provide a secure loving home. This little guy will reward them with all his affection and lots of doggie snuggles and kisses.

Please see our other available dogs at Grateful Dogs Rescue. Grateful Dogs Rescue incurs substantial medical and other costs in rescuing our dogs. In order to recoup some of these costs, we must charge an adoption fee. The adoption fee for Nigel is $200.

If you are interested in adopting Nigel, please complete our online adoption application. One of our volunteers will get back to you. Adoptions are local, confined to the SF Bay Area.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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