Stella's Story...
Stella is an eight year old female Chihuahua who came to the shelter as a stray. If not claimed, Stella will be available for adoption on 9/5/2013. Stella is a nice little girl who came to the shelter pretty frightened and cautious of people. She will need time and patience from her new family to let her become comfortable and be able to trust them. She is as sweet as they come and although scared she have never offered to nip or bite. She loves to be held and snuggled once she feels she is safe and secure. Stella is currently in a foster home and is doing very well. She is getting along with other animals in the house, and she doesn't mind older children. We do not know what her behavior is around younger/smaller children. Once this little lady is allowed to feel safe in a new home, she will make a great addition of a new family. She will forever bond with those who do not threaten her trust.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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