Comments: Niñez and her sister, Nacha, were an unwanted litter from a family with unaltered pets. After the family agreed to spay and neuter, we agreed to help these girls find their forever homes. We know their mother was a Chihuahua mix, but their loud barks and shrieks tell us there is likely some Schnauzer or terrier in there somewhere. We are not sure what their adult size will be, but they will likely be on the larger side of small. Niñez will not be placed in a home with her sister (they are already showing signs of littermate syndrome), but she absolutely must have another dog in her forever home who can tolerate the extremely high energy level of this growing puppy. At their first adoption showing, Niñez was slightly shyer about meeting new people than her sister, but this often changes after siblings are separated. Her people will need to be prepared for the level of training required and the boundless energy this little girl has. Neither of these two sisters would be appropriate for first-time dog owners. A puppy class would do wonders for her confidence and socialization. Niñez is a very busy little girl, and though she will tolerate being held and cuddled for a short bit, she’s quickly ready to move onto the next exciting thing she can find to get into. She may grow to be a lapdog some day, but by her drive and energy level, we would guess that day is a long way off! If you have the love of puppies and the energy and patience to keep up with this little one required to give her the forever home she deserves, please fill out an application to meet Niñez today!

About Little Dogs Big Hearts Rescue- DFW Chapter

About Our Rescue Group...

Little Dogs Big Hearts Rescue was formed in response to the overwhelming number of adoptable dogs being euthanized in our area. We began by networking with other rescues and transporting dogs from shelters throughout the North Texas / southern Oklahoma area to responsible rescue groups so they could be adopted out. Having a soft spot for the tiny breeds, we began fostering and searching for perfect forever homes for the dogs in our care. We do not operate a kennel or shelter- all of the LDBHR dogs are kept in foster homes until suitable forever families are found. All donations are used to make a dent in the medical care of the dogs- none of our volunteers receive any monetary profit (though the emotional profit from helping these wonderful animals makes us feel very wealthy, indeed!). If you have any questions about our group, please feel free to ask at

Come Meet Our Pets...

To see our next Meet The Dogs event, please check out our webpage at We do not do onsite adoptions, but we do get the foster kiddos out in public so that people get a chance to meet them and fall in love and (hopefully) begin the adoption process!
