- Chihuahua, Mixed Breed
- Up-to-date with routine shots
Pretty Girl is a 5 year chi mix who has made huge progress in foster care. She had a rough start in life, and was very shut down when she came into rescue. She did not respond to humans and seemed to have no interest in life. After a month with a loving foster family she has started to feel much less hopeless and detached. She now eagerly plays with a bone (Yay!), sits in laps, wags her tail, and is happy to greet the day. She is well on the road to feeling secure and confident, but of course will need continued patience, guidance, and encouragement. She has responded very well to structure and positive reinforcement, and it's so rewarding to see her progress. She is crate-trained, meaning she likes her crate and will stay in it for several hours at a time. She currently sleeps in a crate too, in the human bedroom. She has been house trained in her foster home, and will also use pee pads if necessary. Pretty Girl will warm up to people but her body parts are sensitive to touch so she needs to build trust. She's anxious about having her tail touched, for example, but is now allowing gentle touch. She is a good girl who rarely barks, doesn't get into mischief, and loves a comfy bed. She is healthy, up to date on all shots, and microchipped. She would do best as an only dog, but cats would probably be OK. No young children, and only gentle older kids. Her adoption fee is $275 and she is being fostered in Brockton Mass. If she sounds like your kind of dog please fill out an application at www.alldogrescue.org or send an inquiry via PetFinder.

To adopt a dog from us, you must be over the age of 21. To begin the process, first fill out an adoption application. The foster provider will then set up a telephone interview to determine if you and the dog are a good match for each other. The next step is for you to come and visit the dog at the foster home. Then we will do a home visit at your residence before finalizing the adoption. The final step is for you to pick up your new dog from the foster home. Ongoing contact will be maintained with you to see how it’s going and offer training suggestions and behavior advice.
The adoption fee
The adoption fee ranges from $250-$500 for most adult dogs (decided on a case-by-case basis). This is to help defray the costs of spaying, neutering, transportation and other medical expenses. All dogs are spayed or neutered, examined by a vet, given medical shots and treated for any medical condition they may have, prior to adoption. Donations above the adoption fee are always welcome!
