My story

Roxy is a sweet fun dog that is looking for a home!

Roxy was recently surrendered to the Chico Animal Shelter. She is currently in a foster home, and here is what foster mom Shelly has to say about her:
""Roxy is such a great dog! She has been at our house since May 22, and since the day she came to our house she fit right in. She has no problem with meeting new people and will walk right up to them for petting! She loves all people and is very cuddly. Another great thing about Roxy is that she loves my husband more than she loves me - occasionally foster dogs will be more frightened of men, but not Roxy.
She currently lives at our house with two other foster dogs, three foster kittens, and an adult cat. While she co-exists mostly peacefully with the other animals, we can tell that Roxy would love to be the only dog in her home! But she would likely do fine with another dog in the home, preferably older and relatively mellow.
Roxy is a little chubby, and luckily she loves to go for walks. She walks great on the leash! She sleeps quietly at night, is 100% housetrained, and only barks when there is something to bark at (like mail delivery). She's one of those sweet dogs that wags her tail when you just look at her.""

In her previous home, Roxy was not good with children and would show signs of aggression if disturbed while sleeping in bed. Because of this, she would need to go to an understanding, adult-only home.

If you think you may be interested in Roxy, please submit an adoption application at chicoanimalshelter.orgThis animal is at the City of Chico Animal Shelter. Please call 530-894-5630

Why adoption is a great option

Roxy, a Chico 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 Chico, or seeking a Chihuahua/Miniature Pinscher dog from a breeder in Chico.

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