Nico's Story...
Nico is a 2 year old Chihuahua that was surrendered to the shelter because his family was moving and couldn't take him with them. Because Nico is used to being in a home, he has been terrorized at the shelter. If you take it slow, very slow, he warms up and is a little cuddle monkey. Don't think his growling is meanness. He loves other dogs, cats and kids. He's so tiny kids in the family should be over 7 years of age. He's a lap dog and loves to go for walks. Watch it, he's a runner. If he gets off the leash, be prepared to chase him for awhile. Nico really is a super sweet boy once he gets to know you.

If you have kids and/or another dog in your family and are interested in adopting a Friendship dog please bring them with you for a meet and greet. No appointment is necessary. Stop by anytime during regular business hours.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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