Facts about Petey

  • Breed: Chihuahua
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
Meet Petey! We call him Peg Leg Petey because he had a cast, and walked like one! He was at the Fort Worth, Texas Animal Shelter with a badly twisted/crooked leg, and unfortunately couldn't be saved. Now Petey is our 3 legged pirate. He has come so far, but is still heartworm positive, but on treatment! He is good with all dogs, ats, but seems a little shy of men. Petey would do best as a girl's best friend/companion like a little purse dog as he is only 3lbs! Our little trifecta :)

About Rescue Without Boundaries

About Our Rescue Group...

Rescue Without Boundaries is run by a board of dedicated directors under our President Paige Mitchell consisting of Janet Mikeska, Sharlotte King, Jan Skinner and Alicia Hoang. We have a great group of wonderful supporters and volunteers who work tirelessly for the animals in our care.

Come Meet Our Pets...

The dogs in this program are not housed in a central shelter facility. Each dog lives with a volunteer foster family in that family’s private home. Because of this, it is generally not possible to see all of the dogs together. However, if there is a specific individual dog you have found on our website or in any of our online adoption listings, you can arrange to meet this dog by appointment with an approved adoption application. The application does not commit you to adopting, but rather ensures our ability to approve your adoption should you meet and fall in love with the dog.

Our Adoption Process...

Step 1 - The application:
Step 2 - The phone interview:
Volunteers review each adoption application, and if we think we might have a dog who is a good match for you, we will contact you for a phone interview.
Step 3 - The meet and greet the pooch:
Our organization does not have a shelter where the dogs can be visited. Our dogs are in foster homes. We do NOT arrange meetings between interested individuals and our fosters until an applicant has been approved via this adoption process.
Once you have been approved, a volunteer (usually the foster) will contact you about scheduling a time for you to meet the dog(s) you are interested in. This meeting may occur at the fosters residence or your home, or neutral territory for the home dog.
Step 4 - The home safety check:
Once a home safety check is passed, the adopter is now ready to start the home trial for a new four-legged cutie pie!
Step 5 - The home trial:
Want to make sure that your adopted pet adjusts well to your home? After deciding on a dog to adopt, you will get a weel Trial Adoption Period (TAP). This allows you to see the dog in your home environment.
Step 6 - The adoption donation:
We depend on adoption donations to partially cover our costs, although they don't come close to covering all our expenses.

Here is the recommended minimum donation by age:
-puppies 6 months and younger $300
7 months and older $250
-senior pups- please check with rescue (depending on the particular dog)
