I am already neutered, housetrained, in need of an experienced adopter, and up to date with shots.

Murphee - Low Maintenance Man's Story...
My name is Murphee. I am a handsome, 8 year old, neutered male Chihuahua mix. I weigh in at about 14 lbs. I have exemplary house manners. I am quiet in the house, I do all my toileting outside and I don't have any annoying puppyish behaviors like chewing up shoes, furniture, etc. You can count on me to behave myself even when you aren't looking. I love to go for walks. I get so excited when I see that leash. I walk like a drunken sailor (all over the place) but I have a good energy level and a very jaunty little prance. I can keep up with you. In fact, at times you may need to prompt me to go a little slower. I am cautious around new people and can be a little barky when someone new is around. Once I get to know you and figure out that you mean me no harm, we can be friends. I love to run around my fenced backyard. I think I could get along with another small dog but I don't really like the big galoot that lives in my foster home. He is a goofy pup and likes to play rough. I find the young whippersnapper a little annoying. I believe dogs should act in a more dignified manner. I am very good in my crate although I see no reason for me to be in there. I am equally good lounging on the couch. I would very much like a home of my own where I can feel safe and secure. My dream would be a quiet home with adults. I don't think I would do well with young kids but older kids who can respect my dignity might be okay. I am a low maintenance guy. If you want a well-mannered companion, I am your man. I am up to date on my vaccinations, negative for Heartworm and Lyme disease and microchipped.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Murphee - Low Maintenance Man, a Worcester Chihuahua/Miniature Pinscher dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Chihuahua/Miniature Pinscher for sale in Worcester, or seeking a Chihuahua/Miniature Pinscher dog from a breeder in Worcester.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Worcester 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 Worcester 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/Miniature Pinscher breeders who help with Chihuahua/Miniature Pinscher rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Worcester paves the way for another one to be saved.
