Aurora's Story...
*Aurora is currently living in Houston in an amazing foster family. She is available for local or out-of-town adoption. Aurora's adoption fee is $300 and an Austin adopter would need to drive to Houston to pick her up.*

These sweet girls are around 8 months old and just 6 pounds each. They are Toy Rat Terrier / Chihuahua mixes and the cutest girls ever! We met Aurora and Sophia at the local city pound and they were in terrible condition. They had mange, a non-contagious skin condition, so badly that they were just tiny bodies without any hair. We could see their beauty despite that and knew with some care they would be perfect in a very short time.

Aurora gets along well with other dogs, but she is so small that we must match her with furry siblings and humans that will be careful around them. This is also important for any children in the family to be older kids that are gentle and understand these girls are a little more fragile than larger dogs.

Aurora is independent and would rather keep her 4 little feet on the floor and have a belly rub for her attention. When she is picked up, we are extra careful because she wiggles quite a bit and can jump out of your arms if you aren’t prepared. Aurora loves to play with other dogs, she would be great as an addition to a family that already has dogs or as a only dog.

Due to their previous skin condition, we would advocate that Aurora be kept on a Bravecto (oral flea medication) every three months, it is an oral medication that can be purchased either through the vet or online. This is to ensure that her skin remains healthy lifelong. Aurora is spayed, microchipped and fully vaccinated.

Aurora is doing really well with her kennel and house training, but is still learning her leash manners. We hope that her new family will be patient as she continues to learn and develop into an amazing family member.

Aurora is the most precious little girl who will bring more joy to a new family than one could imagine! She is living with her foster family in Houston, Texas and are available for a loving family now.

The first step in our adoption process is to fill out the adoption application on our website, www.reggiesfriends.org. Please hover over the Adoptables tab and the application link will appear. If you would like to ask their foster mom any specific questions, please email us at adoptions@reggiesfriends.org today.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Austin 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 Austin 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 Rat Terrier/Chihuahua breeders who help with Rat Terrier/Chihuahua rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Austin paves the way for another one to be saved.
