Freckles's Story...
Great big beautiful brown eyes and the sweetest personality in the world describe this wonderful little girl. She must have been named Freckles, as she has lots of golden freckles. Owner surrendered to a crowded shelter in California, nice folks made arrangements for her to be transported to Bellingham where, it was hoped, she would have a better chance at finding a loving home. Freckles’ foster mom thinks she is just the best dog ever. She is loving, calm, wants to please and is good with the resident cats and dogs. She has not yet been heard to bark. She has already figured out how to use the doggie door and is making wonderful progress on learning to go outside. As Freckles is a California girl, going potty outside in rainy Bellingham was not what she considered a pleasant thing. She has made wonderful strides and now is one of the first out the door. Freckles would be an ideal dog for a retired couple who have the time for her. She travels well, loves to go and apparently does not bark. She is friendly with everyone and everything. Being part Chihuahua, Freckles has an intense desire to be with you. A busy family with minimal time for her would not be the best. She wants to be with you but is not clingy. She is just simply wonderful. If you are looking for a friendly, cuddly, respectful and sweet companion, Freckles will be the girl for you.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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