PINTA's Story...
Four-year-old Pinta was found as a stray. She is a quiet girl that would love a new family. She loves older kids but does not care for other busy dogs that like to get in her face.. She is a little sensitive about being picked up at times but once in your arms she is in heaven. She should live with older children 7+ because she does tend to screech and cower if she is fearful of something. You can also see Pinta's video at www.youtube.com/fotnhas . NO APPOINTMENTS NEEDED.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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