Story
Meet Phoenix! This is a big man in a little package. He is 4 yrs and 9 Lbs. He came to us riddled with anxiety and would chew on his tail for comfort. Now Phoenix is rising out of the ashes. He is crate and house trained. Phoenix is what we call a rattlesnake, but for that we can forgive him. He loves to play and is superb on leash. Phoenix would thrive in a quiet household and is comfortable to be left alone for several hours. Another confident dog would be a plus but not required. Phoenix is neutered and up-to-date on vaccines. The adoption fee for this dog is $425 which includes routine vetting and spay/neuter. PetConnect Rescue cannot guarantee the exact breed of any animal in our care. The breed listed is based on any background we may have been provided, and the general appearance of the animal at the time they enter our system.

Story
****NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS**** ****NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS**** ****NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS**** Calling All Chihuahua Lovers! Mama Dahlia is finally done nursing her babies; she is such a good mom. At 1 year old she found herself in a crowded shelter in Texas terrified with 4 new born puppies. One of our volunteers saw her and sprang into action, and this sweet girl made it from TX to Maryland where she continued to take great care of her babies. Dahlia is an absolute sweetheart good with pretty much anything and everything and would love to find a home of her own. Dahlia will be spayed as soon as her milk has dried up and her surgery is already scheduled. To meet Dahlia or any of her 4 babies (Daisy May, Sawyer, Foster and Rose) you'll need to fill out an adoption application and get the green light from our vetting team to schedule a meet and greet. We gotta respect foster parents' time, you know :) Click this link to get started: https://bit.ly/4d7XoKd (Just make sure to read the first page in its entirety!) Adoption area: We prioritize homes within 60 miles of Silver Spring, MD. However, fantastic matches in PA, NJ, NY, and WV will be considered!

****NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS**** ****NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS**** ****NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS**** Calling All Chihuahua Lovers! We have a TEENY TINY invasion of heart-melting cuteness happening here! These Chihuahua puppies are so small, they practically come with a built-in cuddle guarantee. Here's the scoop: * We have a whole crew: Daisy May (F), Rose (F), Sawyer (M), and Forest (M), all led by the amazing Mama Dahlia (F). * These playful pups were born around April 14th (according to our vet, the real MVP). * They're currently the size of a large burrito (think 3 lbs!), but Mama Dahlia (a year old and a total sweetheart) is a whole 12 lbs to show them the ropes. * To meet these little charmers, you'll need to fill out an adoption application and get the green light from our vetting team to schedule a meet and greet. We gotta respect foster parents' time, you know? * Since they're still young pups, in addition to the adoption donation, we require a refundable $125 deposit to make sure they get spayed/neutered (we'll handle scheduling and paying for that as outlined in Page 1 of the Application!).
