Fonzie's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Fonzie's Story...
Fonzie was found on the streets of one of Houston's most dangerous dog fighting neighborhoods. He showed extreme signs of abuse. He was very frightened and skittish of people. He would not allow anyone to touch him and would holler and cry by the mere sight of a hand waving near him. He thought he was going to get beaten. He has come a long way and we have shown him that he can trust againl.

He is a bit shy but warms up fast. He is super sweet, loves to cuddle, great on a leash, great with dogs and cats and all people. Most of all Fonzie loves his humans. He is a big cuddle bug and loves to be on your lap if given the opportunity.

Fonzie is neutered and up to date on all vaccinations including rabies and microchipped. Fonzie is Heartworm Positive but has been on the slow kill treatment for over 6 months and should be Negative in another 6 months.

Fonzie is in need of a Foster until he is adopted

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Fonzie, 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.
