|I'm now having to say goodbye to our other dog, Timbit, because without a companion, he is unhappy, as well I'm starting school in January and he does not like being left alone for long periods of time, and unfortunately no one will be home for most of the day into the evening, so it would not be fair to him. He's incredibly sweet and gentle. He's also very quiet. Hes a long haired chihuahua. Hes about 5, going to be 6 in January. He is not fixed but his shots are up to date. He's fully house trained but because he's a small dog he must be brought out frequently (at least every 3-4 hours) or an accident is more likely to occur, (he seems to be fine through the evening though as long as he's brought out before bed, and by no later than 9am). We think he may have anxiety issues with people, as he's scared by mostly everyone, but he does not bite or bark, he instead sits in one spot and does not move, (goes sort of "possum"). Once he gets used to you, he will follow you around wagging his fluffy tail. He will bark if someone's at the door once or twice but he's easily quieted by simply calling his name. The only other time he'll bark is if you've been gone and he's happy to see you, but he's a fantastic dog, and it honestly breaks my heart to have to find either of my doggies a new home. But it was unfair not to be able to give Lady the proper time and training, and with school starting very soon, it's unfair to leave either of them alone for longer periods of time. I'm asking a rehoming fee for Timbit so I know the family he goes to has the means and want to care for him, as well as to return some of the money I've invested in things, ( such as testing and vet visits, etc). Please if you're interested, email me some information about you and your family and i will get back to you relatively quickly. Thank you!|
Things you should know about buying or adopting a pet
While pet sellers can be reputable individuals or breeders who treat their animals well, the ease of selling pets over the Internet also makes it attractive to careless, irresponsible breeders and scammers. To protect yourself, you must be careful and believe only what you see and not what you are told. It is highly recommended to arrange for an inspection of the home where the pets are bred. This allows you to check that the mother and other animals are living in suitable conditions, being well cared for, and are in good health.
Remember that the Kijiji Pets section is NOT intended to facilitate uncontrolled breeding, irresponsible commercial pet trading, trade of dogs or any other animal for the purpose of fighting or stud services. Any ads that are suspected of promoting this kind of activity or reported to us will be removed. Users are responsible for adhering to the applicable conditions in relation to adopting, buying, selling or listing of an ad on Kijiji.
Kijiji encourages, where possible, the adoption of pets and encourages all pet owners to have their animals spayed or neutered as well as microchipped.
When looking for a pet, it is important to meet the breeder or seller and examine the pet before agreeing to anything. Since Kijiji is local to your community, this should be easy to arrange. Never adopt/buy a pet from someone who is unwilling to let you see how and where the animal is living!
