My story

Chihuahua mix – White & Tan

Hi! My name is Perth. My caretakers at RCHS would describe me as being in the BLUE category. Dogs in the BLUE category have great potential and have a lot to offer their new families. Typically, BLUE dogs are wonderful companions, but need training to help overcome fears or frustrations that can make certain situations stressful for them. An ideal adopter is someone that enjoys a challenge and is willing to put in the time, love and training needed for them to manage stressful situations and truly enjoy everything life has to offer! Adopters of BLUE dogs will be provided with the tools and post-adoption support they need to continue the amazing training our staff and volunteers have already started.
Dogs are assigned to color categories using any previous owner notes, general handling, as well as staff and volunteer observations. As we continue to get to know the dogs and gather further insights into their personalities, colors may be adjusted accordingly. More information can be found on our website.

If interested in adopting Perth, an adoption survey and instructions can be found on our website.
Adoption Hours: Friday-Monday; 11 AM to 4 PM (Adoptions until 3:30 pm)
Address: 389 Requeza Street, Encinitas, CA 92024

Why adoption is a great option

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

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