Turtle's Story...
2 yrs old - Female - Short haired Chihuahua mix
Hi I'm Turtle. I'm a two year old female short haired chihuahua that is very easy going, super sweet and gets along with everybody. Right now I have an injured right shoulder, so I'm walking around on three legs and doing it well and look forward to going outside for short walks. I'm still a little nervous and unsure from being homeless but I'm starting to enjoy being inside and having a bed to sleep in.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Turtle, 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.
