BERTHA's Story...
Bertha's guardian died and she found herself in a very abusive situation. She is a 7 year old Chihuahua. She eventually made it to NAR where extensive testing was done to find out the extent of her injuries. The good news was that even though she did suffer some neurological damage it will not stop her from having a great life. The only sign that there is any issues is that she walks like she had one too many martinis. She may look drunk...but don't let that fool you. She knows exactly where she is and where she wants to go. She see's, hears and eats perfectly fine. She does her business outside and is crate trained (as long as she has a nice soft bed and a blanket). I should also mention that she is fearless. Nothing is to high to jump off of or try to climb. She is only 5 lbs so a couch is big to her. She has been in foster care with cats and dogs and gets along with everyone. Since she moves a little slower then other dogs a big dog that isn't used to being around a tiny dog would probably not work. Small children may also be too quick for her. She loves to snuggle. She is just a joy to have around. She doesn't require any special care other then to be loved and kept safe. Bertha would like a forever home.She is vaccinated, spayed, house- and crate trained, microchipped, heartworm negative. All our dogs are professionally temperament tested and evaluated.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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