Lou's Info...

I am already neutered, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Lou's Story...
Lou and four other dirty, scared dogs were dumped—just left in the hope that someone would take responsibility for them. Lou may have come from a puppy mill, or he may have lived with a dog hoarder. He’s not talking, so we will never know.
Lou is a precious dog that will be a great pet! He deserves a life with a human that will take care of him and treat him the way treasured companion dogs are treated. Lou thinks that being clean and getting regular meals is great, but he hopes to do this at your house! Lou is still rather shy and scared following his dumping experience, so he needs help developing his doggie potential. Lou’s got it in him to be your perfect pooch. He just needs help getting there! Meet little Lou and look into those expressive eyes! Once you fall for Lou and make that commitment, he will be one step closer to being the dog he was meant to be!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Lou, 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.
