My story

Frito is a male chihuahua/shihpoo 2-2.5 y/o, ~5 lbs, and potty trained. He could stand to gain at least another pound but as a normal Chi personality, he’s a fussy eater.  He responds to ‘Puppy’; he doesn’t know the name the shelter gave him. He will be the happiest in a home as an only pet where he can have all the attention. Due to his size and quiet personality, he’s most suitable for a quiet home with a single person, a couple, or a family with high school kids. He has not been tested with younger kids or cats. It’s likely he’ll want to be in your arms if visitors are younger than HS age. He must have a fenced yard for his zoomies and someone who’s home most of the day. At first, he’s a little nervous on car rides but settles down quickly in a doggy car seat. He’s easy to take along to run errands and would love to be your pocket puppy. He ignores other dogs.  He enjoys really small stuffies to throw in the air for himself; he does the same with blueberries. And, sometimes he’ll play with his food before eating. He likes to chase cat strings and any laundry you’re attempting to fold or put on yourself. He’s good about entertaining himself. He walks well on a leash. And, he’s fine in a crate but it’s unnecessary since he’s potty trained, doesn’t chew, and always wants to sleep in the bed under the blankets with his human.  Basically, all he cares about is his human connections. Frito is neutered, utd on vaccs, chipped, and HW-. If you are interested in meeting him, complete our meet and greet application at https://www.corgisandfriends.com/forms as the first step. We require the application, home and reference check, and meet with everyone in the home. Frito’s adoption fee is $400 and we are not doing any out of state adoptions.

Why adoption is a great option

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

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