Rhett is a playful, athletic, sweet, affectionate, loyal, smart, obedient, gentle, mellow guy. He enjoys walks and bones, toys and treats in his own space. He benefits from having meals in his own space with his own bowl. Likes to chase birds and possibly other animals. Loves to play chase, wrestle and cuddle with his friend Scarlette. He may tolerate some dogs that he is used to and are passive. 

Rhett displays many typical chihuahua behaviors but is mostly mellow and loves to curl up on the couch or bed and cuddle with humans. Rhett does not like the shower and prefers a bath using a cup to pour water. Rhett is still willing to trust humans after unknown traumas but will need some patience and slow movements at first.

 At Laramie Animal Welfare Society, the first step to adoption is completing an adoption application on our website Once submitted, your application will be reviewed by our adoption team which typically takes up to 7 days.  Keep in mind, the kitten/cat you’re interested in when applying may be adopted and no longer available by the time your application is approved. We do not place animals on hold.   Pending approval, your application is valid for 6 months. Also pending approval, you will receive contact information, so that you may inquire about the personalities of specific animals.   Due to COVID-19, we are highly encouraging foster homes and adopters to speak with one another via phone or video chat to limit in-person contact. If meeting in person at a foster home or at our adoption center, everyone is encouraged to wear masks and socially distance.   Adoptions for individual animals will occur by private adoption appointment. Because we are 100 % foster-based, appointments are scheduled pending staff, foster home, and vetting schedules.  Should you want to proceed with the adoption, a brief appointment will occur at our adoption center to sign adoption paperwork, receive medical records, and pay the adoption fee.   

**Dog/Puppy applications -  Because of the large volume of dog/puppy applications we are receiving these applications may take longer to process, please be patient. We do not do first come first serve but we place the dog/puppy in the best suited home. If you have questions about the Dog/Puppy process please email**
