Rocco's Story...
Rocco here is a 2 1/2 year old, 7 1/2 pound bundle of Chihuahua love! He was found in a Walmart parking lot before he was rescued, so he is a bit shy at first but warms up quickly. Rocco loves to spend his days right next to or on his human; he is a true lap dog! He does well with the other dogs here and likes cats! If you would like to make Rocco part of your family, please complete an application online at and be sure to include his name at the top.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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