My story

Onyx is the biggest of the three (which is not by any means big). He plays with his siblings well, but is pretty people focused. He always wants to sit on my lap and he's perfectly happy to be carried around while I'm mobile. He often looks worried, but I think that's just his wrinkly forehead. He's a wonderful little guy that will make a great companion.

He's good with kids and dogs. He has met a kitten and was indifferent. He is working on potty training. He sleeps through the night in a pen with his brothers.

Why adoption is a great option

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

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