Pet Spotlight: Strike it Rich with Peso

by Helen Hartel


To adopt Peso, request A3515143.

Peso is an 11-year-old male Chihuahua. He was frightened and alone on the streets when he came to the shelter as a stray. Though it must have been tough for him, he is now ready to be in his forever home, safe and warm next to someone that is not afraid to adopt a tiny older dog.

Here are some things you should know about him:

  • He has a lot of spunk.
  • He loves going on walks and then curling up in his bed.
  • He has been to a private vet for a senior checkup and he is a healthy boy.
  • He plays well with other dogs his size.
  • He is the perfect size for a house, apartment or condo

Worried about adopting an older pup? Well don’t be. Small dogs have a longer life and his age is just an estimate. His blood work from his recent checkup came back fine and other than having some teeth pulled, the vet said he is a healthy boy who is ready for his forever home.

Saving an older animal’s life offers an unmatched emotional return on your investment, and you’ll feel the rewards each and every day you spend with him. Ask to meet him today.
