My story

Personality alert! This is Tobin, a 10-year-old, 10 pound Chihuahua, looking for his forever home. This special guy has a triple coat (thick ultra-soft fur and oh, so fluffy). Tobin loves to play, snuggle and will entertain you with kisses or crazy antics.

If you are into traveling, Tobin will be your road buddy for sure! He loves car rides and no one is a stranger to this sweet little guy. Tobin also loves all other dogs both big and small. He hasn’t been tested around cats but chances are if they will play with him, he will love them.

Tobin is great in a kennel and is mostly house trained but, as with most late neutered males, he will mark at first. That problem is easily corrected with a washable belly band until he is comfortable.

Tobin has been neutered, is current on vaccinations, has tested negative for heartworm and has been microchipped.

You can visit at the Salt Lake PetSmart (1830 South 380 West) the third Saturday of each month from 11-3.

Why adoption is a great option

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

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