Rio's Story...
My name is Rio and I am a timid I year old girl. I was picked up as a stray & so thin you could see all my ribs & hip bones. But my foster mom makes sure I have all I want to help me get to a better weight. I like people mostly, I just have to know you are safe for me to like. My foster mommy says I am doing so well with house training. I even went to the door for her to let her know. I want to please my person. I am able to sleep in the big bed in my foster home & boy to I love that! She even lets me sleep under the covers where it is toasty warm. I sometimes sleep on her pillow & she covers me with a blanket to stay warm. No matter where I am I have the knack of getting under a blanket. I am a quiet girl & love attention. My foster mom says I would do best as an only dog so I can get all the attention because I don’t seem to care about having siblings. Rio is up to date on all shots, microchiped, and spayed. Rio’s adoption fee is $225.00.WE DO NOT ACCEPT PERSONAL CHECKS. Out of state adopters are responsible for arranging transport, WE DO NOT SHIP DOGS.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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