Oliver's Story...
Oliver is a neutered, male Chihuahua. He would be considered the "fawn" type, and is about 1 1/2 years old. He is super cute, and loves attention......but, as most Chihuahuas are, he can be timid around strangers. He is looking for a home that is experienced with this breed, and where there are no children. He gets along fine with other small breeds of dogs, and is okay with cats. He would also be happy as an only dog.....but, NO apartments. He gets barky when he hears noises. Oliver was found as a stray, and was pretty close to death. He was found over the Holidays, and was starving and dehydrated. A nice lady picked him up, and kept him until we could get to him the next day. He was only 5 pounds when he was found, but is about 7 1/2 now, at his full weight. He is now house-trained. He does not like being in a crate, but is okay being confined to a room, like a laundry room. Oliver is a lap dog, and also likes to give kisses. He will make a great companion.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Oliver, a Houston Chihuahua dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Chihuahua for sale in Houston, or seeking a Chihuahua dog from a breeder in Houston.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Houston already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Houston breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Chihuahua breeders who help with Chihuahua rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Houston paves the way for another one to be saved.
