Barney's Story...
If you would like more information about Barney or are interested in adopting him, please call this phone number: 713.480.1237

Barney is a type of dog they call a Chiweenie, part Chihuahua and part Dachshund. Barney was adopted primarily to be a companion to the owner’s 5 year old dachshund. But the dachshund had other ideas. He was used to being an only dog and has made it plain that he prefers it that way. Even though Barney is a very loving boy, the dachshund simply does not want him around. The owner would like to find Barney a great home. Barney has been well taken care of. He is up to date on all vaccinations, is neutered and microchipped. The vet said Barney is a very healthy young dog. He is also pretty high energy and enjoys being the boss.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Barney, a Houston Chihuahua/Dachshund dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Chihuahua/Dachshund for sale in Houston, or seeking a Chihuahua/Dachshund 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/Dachshund breeders who help with Chihuahua/Dachshund rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Houston paves the way for another one to be saved.
