Story
  PintoChihuahua10 years old10 poundsFostered in Benson, NC (outside of Raleigh)  Short version: Sweet, friendly, dramatic, mostly housetrained, leash trained, crate trained, kids over 10 only Pinto loves to climb into the lap of his person and stare lovingly into your eyes.  And his deep brown eyes will melt you – we promise! Pinto loves to snuggle and is super friendly with guests. He greets new people at his foster home with a tail wag and lets them pet him. He loves both men and women – he’s not specific at all – anyone who will give him attention. Pinto gets along with other dogs but would also be OK as an only dog. He passed his cat test with flying colors Pinto got the memo that he’s an honorary dachshund – he loves to burrow in blankets. We keep meaning to get him a shirt that says Rufferee – Pinto will bark at the dachshunds if they bark at ant farts or people in the home in his self-appointed role as a referee. He’s got great manners – will wait his turn and be respectful. But if you have a treat – he does the most adorable dance and butt waggle. Pinto is mostly housetrained and made amazing progress while being in rescue.  Now comes the catch. Pinto has 100 percent the Chi attitude! We haven’t seen quite the dramatic flair that Pinto has since we were middle school girls.  He likes to kiss you, but gets pissed off if you give him kisses, for some bizarre reason. And he used to have drama with the collar coming on and off, but now that he trusts his foster mom. She's made great progress with getting the harness on and off, but he still sometimes throws a tantrum. But the good news - he does great on a slip lead.  So he needs a family without kids under 12. Pinto is neutered, UTD on shots, had an extensive dental, had senior bloodwork, and is HW negative. He has a mild heart murmur that needs to be monitored. His new family will need to drive to Benson, NC to adopt him – no transports. We prefer to adopt within a 4 hour drive of central NC. To get the process started of bringing this dude home, fill out an application at www.doxiebyproxy.org/application. Yes, Pinto is a bit quirky. But aren’t we all? And if you listen to his boundaries, then this guy is going to be your best friend till the end of time. He’s sweet, spunky, and completely adorable! ##2012195##

Story
Meet Annie YOU MUST HAVE AN APPROVED APPLICATION IN ORDER TO MEET OUR PETS. Meet Annie, an adorable 7 or 8 year old Chihuahua weighing 7.6 pounds. Annie has had a challenging past, having been rescued from a rural county shelter along with seven other dogs. Despite her rough start, Annie is a sweet and playful little companion, ready to bring joy to her forever home. Personality: Annie is known for her sweet and playful nature. She enjoys chasing small tennis balls and playing with small toys. Her playful spirit makes her a delightful addition to any household. Compatibility: Annie gets along well with other nice dogs of any size. She would thrive in a home with canine companionship, making her an ideal addition to a family with existing dogs. Her friendly demeanor suggests that she can create lasting bonds with both humans and furry friends. Ideal Home: Annie's perfect home would have a secure fence, as she has an adventurous side. This will ensure her safety while allowing her to explore and play freely. In an ideal world, Annie would be accompanied by her buddy Leo, creating a perfect duo of canine companionship. Health Information: Annie is spayed, up to date on vaccines, and is scheduled for a dental procedure to ensure her continued well-being. It's important to note that Annie, like so many Chihuahuas, has a luxating patella in one of her back legs. It doesn't slow her down, and she shows no signs of discomfort so it is not a problem. Adoption Considerations: Prospective adopters should be prepared for a playful and affectionate companion. Annie's adventurous spirit may require a secure environment to prevent any unplanned escapades. Additionally, her potential adopter should be comfortable with the fact that Annie has a luxating patella, although it doesn't affect her overall well-being at all. If you're looking for a charming and loving canine companion, Annie might be the perfect fit for your family! Adoption donation $250. Please note that we do not ship animals.

Story
Can not walk on back legs.Apple was surrendered to the shelter to be euthanized. She had lost the use of her back legs and they couldn’t afford to get her vetted. The shelter fell love with her because she is so full of life and love. We rescued her and had in depth vet examination to find out if her back legs could be fixed. Unfortunately they said surgery would be a 50/50 success rate and with her age didn’t recommend it. They said otherwise she’s a happy healthy dog. She has a wheelchair but prefers to scoot around. She goes to the door when she needs to go outside. She is a very sweet senior who deserves someone who will love her regardless of her handicap. She is fully vetted. May 25, 2024, 10:06 pm
