Clarence Colgin's Story...
This little cutie is Clarence Colgin. If you think Clarence looks more like a Chihuahua than a Dachshund, you'd be right! Recently DREAM rescued Kearton Kabob from a local shelter. Keaton had this sweet, young, blond colored Chi as a "cell mate." When our volunteer arrived to pull the Keaton, she said the Chi virtually clung to her arm and she just didn't have the heart to leave him behind, so we rescued "Clarence too!"

He is a high-spirited young dog with a real zest for life. He's bright, inquisitive and just a tad bit submissive. He is super friendly and gets along well with all dogs and people. He loves to play tug-of-war with his human or with a furry buddy; plus he can also easily entertain himself. After a long day, he does love to cuddle, but he can be ready at a moments notice for a late game of tug-of-war or chase. Since he is a young dog, he is still a work in process on learning house manners such as eating only from his bowl and not others, lights outs means it's time to go to bed and not everything is a toy. He is also learning to walk on a leash. He will pull on the leash a bit, as he has places to go and dogs to meet. If he sees a larger male dog, he can get a bit barky until he knows the dog better. If he sees a pretty female dog, he simply melts while trying to get her attention. He is house broken and will sleep in a crate all night, but the door to the crate has always stayed open.

We're glad we were able to get Clarence out of the shelter! We're hoping to be just as successful at finding him a loving forever family!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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