Petey's Info...

Petey's Story...
A chihuahua, dachshund, Jack Russell terrier mix- pint sized Petey is 6 months old and tips the scales at 7 pounds. He is neutered and heart worm negative.
Petey is in a foster home with two big dogs, his new best friends forever. He thrills in romping and running with them, but despite Herculean effort, wee Petey always loses the games of tug of war. A submissive little guy, he is happy in the company of other dogs as it gives him a sense of structure and security. Like many small dogs, Petey is shy, but never assertive, around men and young children, and he is hesitant with cats. Petey never 'marks his territory', is mostly house trained (only the occasional accident), and not at all destructive- only chewing on the designated dog toys.

A completely happy little extrovert, Petey dances and skips on the heels of his foster mom both inside and outside of the home. He so delights in her company, and her in his, that he kennels in her bedroom overnight so that he can continue to watch over her and be her loyal companion.
Since little Petey is still young and so very gregarious, he is not well suited for a home where he would be left totally alone for long periods.

If you would like to know more about Petey, contact his foster mom Kate at kfharbour@gmail.com

All dogs adopted through Friends of the Animals are current on vaccinations, microchipped, and spayed or neutered prior to adoption. For more information about FOTA or to make a donation, please visit http://www.friendsoftheanimalsbr.org/.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Petey, a Baton Rouge Chihuahua/Jack Russell Terrier puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Chihuahua/Jack Russell Terrier for sale in Baton Rouge, or seeking a Chihuahua/Jack Russell Terrier puppy from a breeder in Baton Rouge.

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