Get to Know Schwartz

Schwartz is an incredibly cute, young Chihuahua mix who had a tough beginning as part of a backyard breeding situation.  He warms up slowly to new people and will need time to adjust to his new home and routine.  It's recommended that he go home to a social and confident dog that can show him the ropes about living with a family.  Schwartz loves toys so much that he tends to want to keep them all to himself so he needs to learn how to share.  His favorite game is fetch.  Schwartz needs a quiet suburban or rural neighborhood with a fully fenced yard.  This tiny pooch needs a family who can give him a new beginning as a beloved pet.

  • Can be both active and calm

  • Good with dogs

  • Good with kids 12+

  • Fearful Pet Experience

High-Quality Medical Care

For the first 15 days following your adoption, we care for an adopted animals in our medical center. An adoption counselor will provide any adopter with specific details on what medical services are covered. After this period, adopters can transition to our Pet Health Center where our high-quality veterinary care continues.

We offer low-cost, high-quality veterinary care to all dogs, puppies, cats, and kittens—including pets not adopted here. Our quality veterinarian team provides all the services you would expect from a private veterinary practice, and when you visit our Pet Health Center, not only do you receive low-cost pet care, but proceeds help support our mission to save lives.
