Miguel's Story...
Hiya! My name is Miguel, and I'm the new adoptable snuggler at NBS Animal Rescue. I'm a 5 year old chihuahua, that loves to burrow and makes nests out of blankets. What are a few of your favorite things? My favorite things in life are fuzzy blankets, fresh laundry, warm towels after a bath, and people who like to hold me in their laps. I love to give kisses, and I don't mind kids, cats or other very mellow dogs. (Kids should be 12years+, I tend to get defensive with lots of sudden movements/running around with little kids & big dogs...better yet, I'd like to be "the kid"!). Also, I should mention that I am now acing my potty training course, am crate trained, and have a pretty darn cute butt wiggle when someone I know comes in the door. Sometimes I can't control my wiggles, and I end up dancing in circles. What can you do? Sometimes you just have to have a fit of joy; and dance and bark about your happiness, right? I also enjoy going for walks, watching movies, and did I mention cuddling enough? It is getting cold out, and I'm a top notch foot warmer when it's time to go to bed.

My adoption fee is $250.00 and includes a DHPP vaccine, bordatella vaccine, de-worming, spay/neuter surgery, rabies vaccine (age appropriate), heartworm test (age appropriate), heartworm preventative, flea/tick preventative, microchip insertion, bath, nail trim, ear cleaning, leash and collar and one week's worth of food.

1.) Visit to fill out an online adoption application and we will start processing your application right away! We do require that persons interested in meeting me apply online and be approved as an adopter first so please visit our website and submit your application today!

2.) Call your veterinarian and give them permission to release information about your current and past pets veterinary history.

Our adoption process requires that any pet in your household be current on it's vaccinations and heartworm preventative as well as spayed/neutered unless there is a documented medical reason on file with your veterinarian. Dogs must be current on Distemper DHPP combo vaccine and Rabies vaccine, cats must be current on Distemper and Rabies at the time of application. This also applies to any pets in your home within the past five years.

While I hope that you have fallen in love with me and will fill out an adoption application right away, I understand if I might not be the perfect pup for your family. Would you please help me by sharing my picture and information on your Facebook page, or e-mail to your friends and family members? I'm a great pup and I really deserve a loving family to give all of my love and puppy kisses to! Thank-you for your help!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Troy 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 Troy 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 Troy paves the way for another one to be saved.
