Kamila's Story...
FAMILY TRAVELING OUT OF THE COUNTRY -- so OFF to the SHELTER I WENT! .... I'm a little girl -- a 4 yo CHI MIX and I'm NERVOUS and SCARED HERE. Lived with 3 adults and a child! LET's GET HER OUT of the SCARY SHELTER and into a HOME!

Kamila's family state that they plan to travel out of the country for extended periods of time an so they surrendered her to the VERY FULL SHELTER!!! She's a bit nervous but sweet and ALLOWED ALL HANDLING! She'll need some time with other animals as she hasn't been around them but initial exposure seems promising with slow intro and calm dogs. She was not cat tested but again -- with a dog friendly cat and slow intro - she'd likely be okay.

In & Out of Cage: Kamila was nervous and tried to bolt out of the cage. She allowed the handler to leash her and allowed petting. After a few minutes, she leaned in. Kamila allowed tail, ears, paws and muzzle handling without issue. Kamila did not perform any commands. Kamila did show interest in play, toys or chewy. Stranger- Kamila approached the stranger socially, sniffed, and wandered around the room. Dog to Dog- Kamila was social and interested in Lenny, but did get nervous, growl, and move away when he sniffed her rear end.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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