My story

Cricket is between 12 years old and old as the hills,because she only has 2 teeth left even the vet can not determine her exact age. She is a smaller girl at 5.5 lbs.
She has poor eyesight, and is going deaf, but her sense of smell is spot on, she can smell a treat at 100 yards. She is positive all treats belong to her and only her.
She can be very affectionate and yet sassy and spicey at the same time.
She can eat dry food even with her tooth loss, but prefers soft food and will go on hunger strikes if she doesn’t get a bowl for breakfast.
She prefers the company of older dogs like herself over young whippersnappers, in fact she will chase whippersnappers away from HER dog bed….and when I say that I mean ALL DOG BEDS ARE HERS. She is everything I love about the breed, smart, loyal, loving and a little bossy.
Cricket needs and deserves a home where she will be treated like the queen she is. Please visit www.azchihuahuarescue.org for more info.

Why adoption is a great option

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

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