Animals for Adoption

Viewing: Dog

Bertie

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.

Bertie is the matriarch of the clan and we believe she is the oldest of the dogs, at around 2 years old. Bertie is very nervous and is the most uncertain about meeting new people, and is protective of the smaller dogs. We are so proud of how far Bertie has come since she arrived and we want to ensure that she continues forward with her new family. We strongly recommend that she work with a trainer to ensure that her new family is using the right techniques to help her.

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.
