Twiggie's Story...
Hi! My name is Twiggie! I am a 6lb, spayed, Terrier/Chihuahua mix. I was named after my skinny, twig-like, Terrier legs. I was saved with some of my buddies from OC Shelter. With so very many Chihuahuas needing homes in Orange County, I was getting skipped by every potential adopter because of a bald spot on my neck. My previous home did not provide flea control which made very itchy. Sometimes I was so itchy I would scratch myself raw. Now I feel fantastic! It is amazing what good food, warm baths and flea prevention can do to a girl! I feel so lucky to have The PRC be my new family until I find the right home. I am a really funny girl. I like to play, cuddle, and kiss! I like other dogs big and small. I love to be praised and encouraged to play. I would be a wonderful forever friend! Come meet me and see just how unique I am. You won’t find another girl quite as special as me!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Twiggie, a Mission Viejo Chihuahua/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Chihuahua/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) for sale in Mission Viejo, or seeking a Chihuahua/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) dog from a breeder in Mission Viejo.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Mission Viejo 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 Mission Viejo 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/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) breeders who help with Chihuahua/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Mission Viejo paves the way for another one to be saved.
