Stella's Story...
As a streetcar screamed past STELLA, the tiny 9 year old's desire to find help, drove her onward. She dove, dodged, turned, then let out a scream unmatched in the natural world! STELLA's tumor had dragged along the curb splitting it open like a melon. Thankfully Rescue heroes heard her cry and she was rushed to Balcones Animal Hospital for emergency surgery to remove the tumor. Weeks later she underwent a much needed dental, and now her spay surgery is complete.

STELLA is finally ready to join a furever family! Her strong personality shines through what was once a dense veil of pain. STELLA is playful, vibrant and full of love - effusively displayed in an outpouring of affection toward her favorite people. She is house & crate trained, seemingly everything a family could want in their four-footed family member. STELLA has just about found her groove...are you her heart's furever desire?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Stella, a AUSTIN Chihuahua dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Chihuahua for sale in AUSTIN, or seeking a 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 Chihuahua breeders who help with Chihuahua rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in AUSTIN paves the way for another one to be saved.
