Nugget's Info...

Nugget's Story...
Nugget was dumped in Millie Bush Park in 2014 during our stormy season.
She was pretty scared from all the thunder, so it took awhile for her rescuer to get her attention, but once he did she jumped right in the car. She was very healthy and took right to living in her foster home!

She knows “sit” and she stands on her back two paws for treats. Sometimes if she isn’t getting enough attention she’ll even talk to you. She is hilarious to watch chase toys because she almost hops to and on them. She will play tug of war too with you or another dog. She wrestles quite a bit with my other 9 month old puppy.

She gets a little anxious when the other dogs start barking and will run scared and cuddle up with you. She loves all people so far and gets along great with her foster family's 5 dogs of various sizes and ages.
Her ideal home would be with another dog to play with, but if no pets children would be good. She isn’t too energetic, but she is a puppy and loves to play! She is a little snuggler and unless you are crate training her (warning she is a whiner!) you will have trouble keeping her out of your bed! (she is so persistent!)

Nugget deserves a wonderful family of her very own...if you are interested in meeting her or learning more about her please go to and fill out an adoption application or email her foster mom at

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Nugget, a Houston Chihuahua puppy 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 puppy 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.
