Animals for Adoption

Viewing: Dog

Doris

The shelter has a family of four Chihuahuas that are ready to start looking for their forever homes. The girls came from an overcrowding situation and have had limited socialization outside of their previous home. We will be looking for experienced homes that have the ability to continue with their socialization and help them become the confident and outgoing dogs we have started to see! Homes without small children will be the best match, as children would likely be too much for these girls. Because of their upbringing they tend to guard their food and sometimes toys, likely because they had to fight the rest of the pack for resources. They will need to be appropriately matched with any other dogs in the home and smaller breeds would likely be the best match.

Doris may only be just shy of 5lbs, but has a personality much bigger than that. Doris is very playful and loves to shake and play tug with her toys. Once she is comfortable with you she’s always looking for a lap or chest to snuggle up on, almost like a cat! Doris plays well with the other dogs, but can get a little possessive of toys and food. She would need to be appropriately matched with another dog in the home. 

All the animals that arrive at the Shelter are stray. The information that we have on the animals has been gathered since their arrival at the Shelter, with the help of our volunteers. We do our best to assess the animals and disclose everything we know regarding health and temperament to interested adopters.

Adoption applications are available at the Shelter only. The application review process can take between 24-48 hours. The Shelter does NOT do same day adoptions.
