Our vet has recommended that all dogs under 6 months not to spay or neuter the pups because they are too young and their bodies are not fully developed. Adoption donation includes transport and all vaccinations, except for the Lyme—therefore, the dogs will not need to get any vaccinations for the first year. COMING TO CT SOON
ADOPTED ON 03-31-18 – Ruger is one of our newest rescues, an adorable two year old Chihuahua with a beautiful black coat and sparkling personality. Nothing is known about his past, although it is a safe assumption that he found himself a suddenly unwanted pet; something that happens all too often in the south. Perhaps dumped on a back road, or just neglected until he wandered away, Ruger was lucky to be found by a rescue group that has taken him in and begun smothering him with love and attention. He has started blossoming into a wonderful little dog!
Ruger is low-maintenance. He likes to take one or two short walks a day and enjoy some playtime as well, but otherwise, he is content snuggling on the couch with his foster mom. She says he is quite the love bug. He seems to get along just fine with the five house cats and the other foster dogs that live with him. So far he has been a gentleman with foster mom’s young grandchildren. In fact, he loves when they play with him and throw his chew toys. Ruger enjoys taking rides in the car, too.
This little guy is a delight and would make a wonderful addition to any family. Whether he is joining a family with kids, other dogs, or taking the role as “only child” Ruger promises to deliver lots of love and companionship. All he needs in return is plenty of the same!
