Ernie's Story...
Meet Ernie! He's not much to look at but he makes up for it with his endearing personality and sweet disposition. He's definitely a lap dog that loves to cuddle. Not much else is known about Ernie because he was rescued from another shelter. He's a long coat Chihuahua mix that's around 5 years old. Because of his size it's probably best if there are kids in the family that they are over 7 years of age. Ernie may be best as a companion pet. He sure is a sweet boy that will make some family or individual very happy to have him.

If you have kids and/or another dog in your family and are interested in adopting a Friendship dog please bring them with you for a meet and greet. No appointment is necessary. Stop by anytime during regular business hours.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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