7 yr old, 7 lb Chihuahua NEUTERED MALE for ADOPTION

 

Meet Mr PitBoss
 
Pit Boss is a 7 yr old, 7 lb Chihuahua NEUTERED MALE. He is also vaccinated, microchipped, free of parasites and has had senior labwork and a dental cleaning.
 
PitBoss joins us from Antioch Animal Services where he was owner-surrendered because the 'other dogs were picking on him'
 
Alllllll PitBoss wants is another friendly dog to play with him but he does not have the awareness to know when to back off. He wants to interact with his friends ALL OF THE TIME and it probably gets on their nerves. We can guess this is what the owner thought was him getting picked on. The other dogs would tell him 'ENOUGH' and he would not listen and so they had to escalate it. He really just wants a friend.
 
PitBoss has deformed ears by being made to live outside and having what is called 'fly strike'. It is a cosmetic issue only and will not cause him any issues.
 
PitBoss also has hypothyroidism that had gone untreated for a long time which caused some skin issues. Now that he has been properly treated, his skin issues have gone away. The pill is super cheap ($5/month) and we are hoping to get donations from our supporters in order to send him home with a year's supply (the most we can send per the law).
 
If you would like to donate towards PitBoss's thyroid meds, please do so at http://www.paypal.me/UOH
 
As with all animals aged 5+, PitBoss can be adopted to someone aged 55+ for a $5 adoption fee.
 
If you are interested in adopting PitBoss, please send an email to beourpet@gmail.com

Umbrella of Hope does not have any strict rules on ages of children because all children are different, but our best approximation is that this animal would do best with children over the age of 5

Umbrella of Hope is a non-profit animal rescue based out of Pittsburg, CA that rescues animals off death row from local shelters. We offer rebates of adoption fees after completion of obedience classes and CGC titles. 

Also, ask us about our seniors for seniors program, where we adopt animals 5 years or older to qualified homes with a $5 donation as an adoption fee. All animals are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, treated for parasites and given any additional treatments (dental work, bloodwork etc) as recommended by our vet. Some of our senior animals have sponsorships for their food/vet care/medicine for the rest of their life at our vet in Pittsburg, CA (94565)

 Adoptions to veterans of the US Armed Services are ALWAYS free to thank you for your service.  Other retired public servants, please let us know what career you retired from and we can let you know if we offer any discounts for your adoption

Please send an email to the Umbrella Of Hope Animal Director with any inquiries at beourpet@gmail.com. Detailed emails will be answered first.  

We thank Maddie's Fund for their sponsorship, Well Pet Vet Clinic for providing most of our veterinary services, Lovely Grooming for our grooming needs, and Delta Dog Camp for training. We thank Memoirs of a Dog and Share the Joy Photography for the beautiful portraits of many of our animals and a special thanks to volunteer photographers Barbara, Kristy, Christine and Natalie.  Please support these businesses for supporting rescue!
