Hi, I am looking for a long coat fawn female Chihuahua puppy. Please advise if any is available. Thank you. maria v.
I have a super tiny chug. For sale $300 LeAnn Dupre
we would like to have a young Pom female, have one female and our old fog died. This little girl is lonely and we would like to have another one for her. We live in Western Ky Deloris Donahoo
I am looking to purchase or adopt a very young pom so that it can get used to my family and myself as it grows. I would like one closer to where I live, which is Waverly, TN. I am on a fixed income so cost is a concern, but this would be mostly for my companionship and travel buddy. I would prefer a female as I have a male dog already and he is not crazy about the male cats next door or male dogs that have visited. I thought I had one, but turned out to be a scam. Only serious sellers/adoptions contact please. Deloris
