Dog's Name: Cheyenne

Estimated Breed :  Chihuahua Mix

Approximate Age:  approx. 4-5 yrs

Approximate Weight: approx. 14 lbs 

Currently Living at:  Foster

Adoption Fee:  $300


This cutie is super sweet, does great with other dogs, is low key and lovable. She has made her way to our rescue for the second time, but honestly we can't figure out why! She is mostly housetrained and does use a peepad if she has to go during the night. She is well crate trained, but prefers to relax on her dog bed while you are away and since she doesn't get into things she shouldn't, we usually allow her that luxury. She is a talker in the form of a growl, so you have to understand that is just her communicating and is not a negative. Cheyenne and dog and cat friendly (as tested by my Ferret, Black Jack)! She has been put on a bit of a diet and we hope to get her back down to a nice weight for a beautiful young lady.  If you are looking for low key companion, then please contact Dena at!


History...her first trip to rescue: This poor girl was seized from her neglectful owner when neighbors called to complain. She was left outside all day in heat, cold, rain, and was very skinny upon arrival.  She is at a very good weight right now and doing well inside the home. Her favorite spot is in the donut bed or sitting on the dining room chair (as in the pics). She is ok with other dogs, but doesn't engage in play with them and doesn't like them in her face. She would do best in a quieter home with lots of love and attention. She seems housetrained, but I would expect a few accidents. She is a sweet little girl looking for a fresh start with a loving FUREVER family. 


Your new pet will require a refresher in house-training. K-9 Lifesavers strongly recommends all new adopters enroll their new pet into obedience training. This provides for an easier transition into a new home, ensures the dog remains well socialized, and helps form a bond between the dog and the new family.           

Adoption fees cover basic vetting, spay/neuter surgery (for dogs over 6 months old), rabies, distemper/parvo vaccinations, treatment for worms, heartworm testing, monthly heartworm prevention and monthly flea/tick prevention (while the animal is in our care), and transport costs from high-kill shelter. Please note that on average, K-9 Lifesavers spend significantly more on each dog than their adoption fee. Adoption fee for HW positive dog also covers heartworm treatment at our partner vets.
