Fangs - presumably referring to his prominent incisors - is a 9 lb., 8 year old Chihuahua with a beautiful, shiny two-tone black and brown coat. Quickly acclimating to NYC life - crate-trained, house-trained and walks beautifully on the leash. Enjoys his walks, naps and cuddling on the sofa and otherwise hanging out with his people. A perfect apartment dog! Likely to do best in a home with companionship throughout the day. Great confidence, opens up quickly and came into the environment with no trouble - loves to be loved and gives all his love in return! Very friendly with people he meets during his NYC travels - no opportunities to observe his interactions with children or cats. While he seeks out other dogs, he can lose patience or growl if uncomfortable.
His adoption fee is $250.
This animal is currently being fostered in Manhattan and may require that potential adopters go there in order to do a meet and greet or adopt.
If you've already applied and would like to transfer your application to Fangs, please submit an Adoption Application Transfer Request.

All of our dogs come spayed or neutered, up to date on vaccinations, including rabies (if age appropriate) and bordetella, are microchipped, heartworm negative, current on flea/tick and heartworm prevention, dewormed, and treated for any ailments found upon veterinary examination. The adoption fee covers a portion of these services, and makes it possible for us to continue rescuing animals. Please note that our pets come from shelters, so we CANNOT guarantee age, breed, mix of breeds, or adult size.
For more information on the adoption fees and the adoption process, please complete our adoption application - an application allows us to get to know your family better so we can assess whether the animal you are interested in is a good match for your home.
An application does not obligate you to adopt, and can be transferred to any pet. Please understand that due to the volume of applications some animals receive, we are unable to contact all applicants. If your application is considered a good fit for the pet you are interested in, or even a different pet, a volunteer will give you a call within 7-10 days. If you would like to transfer your application to a different pet, please submit an adoption application transfer request. You will need the application number and email address from your original application.
We are a foster-based rescue and do not have a shelter location where pets can be seen during the week. Please see our Facebook page for our weekly adoption album if you are interested in meeting a pet in person. Not all animals attend every adoption event, please check our Facebook page for animal event times and locations before you make a trip to meet a specific animal. Please note that we do not perform same-day adoptions.
Thanks so much for caring about a needy animal!
