A Little Bit About Me
Dale arrived at our shelter one dark evening after living in a car with several (12) other Chihuahua companions. Apparently, his homeless person lost his current apartment and his car was his last option. One can only imagine how challenging it was for all of them. Suddenly, you are thrust into a new environment, like being a stranger in a strange land.
Dale is quite nervous and insecure, but he will settle into a warm lap to feel safe. From that place he will accept gentle petting and begin to relax. As an under-socialized adult, Dale may never feel confident in the big wide world, but he will probably bond very closely to his new people. A quiet, adult home will be best for Dale. Using your library voice and getting down to his level will certainly help. Dale might even enjoy outings and adventures if introduced carefully to new surroundings. There's a special dog in Dale who is waiting to show his true colors; he just needs patience and plenty of love from you.

Adoption Fee Details
Adoption fee $150.00 We require an adoption application, a home check and have an adoption contract if the adoption is approved.
The adoption fees you pay help us defray costs we incur when pulling dogs from shelters. We are charged by the shelters the same as you would be charged. The others costs we incur include spay & neuter fees and other miscellaneous medical expenses. We must also pay for the cost of advertising the dogs in order to find new homes, transporting animals, phone bills in responding to potential adopters (many of which are long distance calls), and food and supplements for the dogs.
All of the money you donate is used toward dog rescue. Our volunteers receive no pay. Usually, the amount requested for a particular dog does not even cover the cost of having rescued that dog.
