Tuco- Courtesy post's Info...

I am already neutered, a special needs pet, and up to date with shots.

Tuco- Courtesy post's Story...
Tuco is a neutered male seven year old chihuahua. He only has three legs but
zips around no problem. He came from a hoarding situation and is therefore
unsure about a lot of things. He is extremely wary of and usually aggressive
toward men and children; with women including his foster he is very nervous at
first but quick to attach. Once attached, he wants nothing but to snuggle on
your lap. He loves going for walks and playing with squeakies. He is okay with
some but not all dogs. He is completely housebroken and crate trained, although
he can be aggressive in his crate when he feels cornered. When he is nervous he
goes to his crate for comfort and wants to be left alone until he calms down.
Once he is out of his shell, he's very cute and snugly- he loves to sleep on his
foster moms chest under the blankets! He also loves treats. He is food
aggressive but if he is fed in a separate room it hasn't been too difficult to
manage. He loves to be brushed and to have his tummy rubbed, and is very good
for baths and nail trimming.

Tuco is obviously very special needs. He has difficulty trusting and loving
because he has never had a normal relationship with a human. He needs a forever
home with a woman who can make him feel safe. Please contact if you are interested in more information or adopting Tuco.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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