Meet Bitsy
7 lbs
Chihuahua mix
Currently 12 weeks old

Bitsy is a small 7lb ball of spunk. She is small, about the size of a cat. Bitsy has a lot of energy and loves toys of all kinds. She is usually seen carrying a toy in her mouth to wherever you are. She becomes quite attached to the women in the house, though does not dislike the men.
When she tires she can usually be found on the lap of the nearest female and would be quite content to stay there for hours.

House breaking is on-going. She is kept in a crate when left home during the work day, and the cage remains dry. We are working on noticing the signs when she needs to go outside. She has been around other dogs but no cats or small children.

She is a sweet, sweet well behaved puppy. As long as toys are available she does not pick up personal items to chew.

Illinois law requires that all of our dogs and puppies be spay/neutered within 30 days of adoption. In order to fully comply with this regulation and reduce the number of homeless dogs and puppies, we do not permit out of state adoptions of unaltered dogs or puppies.

Puppies have special needs and require a home where there will be someone available to care for, socialize, and train them during the day. If your family is away from the home for several hours at a time, please consider adopting a “teen” or adult dog.

Our standard adoption fee is $295 cash or check and $300 credit card ($5 processing fee). It includes spay/neuter when age appropriate at our participating vets, age appropriate core vaccinations, fecal testing, deworming, flea and tick preventative,1st vet visit at one of our participating vets, and micro-chipping.

We must have an application, conduct a phone interview, and meet your entire family to approve an adoption. Please email for an application or additional details.
