Dixie's Story...
Please go to to fill out the online adoption application and to read the Important information page for fees. Please like us on Facebook to see current dogs as soon as they arrive.

Dixie is about 9 years old and about 5 lbs she and 5 others have all come from a hoarding situation where they were terribly neglected. All of these are 8 to 10 years old and all need complete dentals and vetting. They are however all sweet just a little shy and are great with other dogs. One has terrible ripped ears and crusty skin, two are missing a lot of fur and one has 40 toe nails?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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