Meet An Adoptable Dog
Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat)
Weight: 4.7 lbs and growing. We expect Caroline will be between 15-20 pounds when full grown.
Height: 6 in
Estimated Birthdate: 7/4/2021
Fence Needed: No
Location: Foster Home in Union, SC
Reason for being in rescue: Lovingly surrendered by owner to find the right home
Special Needs: Caroline is a young dog. She is up to date on all vaccines for her age. Due to her size and age, she will not be spayed prior to adoption. Adopting Caroline will require you to sign a contract committed to spaying her at your cost within 6 months. Caroline is a very small puppy. She will not be adopted to a home with dogs over 35 pounds. She will not be adopted to homes with children under 10. This is for her safety.
What kind of home would be best for me? Thank you for carefully considering the addition of a puppy to your family. Puppies can be a joyous experience, but they can also be a tremendous amount of work. Since our goal is to place each of our dogs in forever homes, we are especially cautious with puppies. We like to stress 3 major things when considering a puppy vs. an adult dog: 1) many adult dogs are well bred, well trained dogs who find themselves in rescue through no fault of their own, 2) adult dogs are eager to share their love and bond with their new family, and 3) puppies will always require far more time, energy, and training than an adult dog. Our ideal puppy adopters are -experienced dog owners with a solid record of excellent vet care of their previous pets, scheduled away from home for no more than 4 hours per day OR have another canine companion already in the home, stay at home type of people (work at home, home schoolers, retired, etc).
Caroline is a very small puppy. She will not be adopted to a home with dogs over 35 pounds. She will not be adopted to homes with children under 10. This is for her safety. Caroline requires another small dog in the home for play.
What is my personality like: Caroline is a young, small puppy. Her mom is a chihuahua mix. Caroline is going to be a small dog. Though we don't know who dad is, we know that mom is 15 pounds and her babies are tracking about the same if not smaller. This is not a dog that you can leave outside.
Caroline has been raised in a home with 5 litter mates and her mom. She is appropriately active and social for her age. She's well adjusted to human affection and is looking for her forever family. Caroline would love another small, younger playmate but it is not a requirement. You will be raising Caroline from a young age. She is not house trained or leash trained and does not know any basic commands. She is too young.
Caroline is the largest of her litter. She looks more like a dachshund mix.
How do I act when I first meet new people: Friendly
Tips and Tidbits: Caroline's birthday is 07/04/2021
House trained: Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained. A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.
Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.
Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
