My story

Meet sweet Keeli-
This lil Angel was discarded like trash by her breeder after giving him several litters in her short 2-3 years of life in which she lived in outside kennels. Sweet Keeli was afraid of the slightest touch of a gentle hand. But a few weeks of living inside an air conditioned kennel, watching reruns of old westerns, and getting petted and loved, and she’s a new girl! Although she is still a bit shy with new people, she does warm up! Keeli is a small girl at 11 lbs. She’s fully vetted, but due to her previous life outdoors, she is heartworm positive. Keeli is being treated by the rescue at our vet and can continue the treatment with her new family. She will be negative in no time and has no activity restrictions. Keeli is kennel/crate trained and walks well on a leash. She is doing better at house training but still needs some work on that. We can't wait to see this sweet girl get the life she so deserves after such a rough start. If you feel you have the love to give and are willing to teach her about life indoors with a family, and live in the Central Florida area, please send in an application and let us know more about your family.

Why adoption is a great option

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

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