Dory's Story...
Dory is a 12 year young tiny chihuahua. She was rescued over a year ago from the Harbor Shelter where she was scheduled to be euthanized. She is a special needs girl and will require eye drops in her eye every day due to a dry eye condition. She is very sweet, loves all people and all dogs. She is always very wiggly and happy. Despite her age she still has some spunk left. She enjoys her days sleeping by the fireplace, let's out an occasional bark at the neighbors and prances around the house. She is patiently waiting for a home to call her own where she will gets lots of love and lap time.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Santa Barbara 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 Santa Barbara 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 Santa Barbara paves the way for another one to be saved.
