Mia's Info...

Mia's Story...
Mia is amazing. Mia is a little over two years old. She is the most loving, cuddly, precious, obedient dog I have ever been around. Timid at first and has her shy moments if someone walks up to her in a very forward manner. She is kennel/potty trained. She will lay down, high 5, sit, stay etc. she is wonderful with kids, great with other dogs except she might be too rowdy for an older dog. Lots and lots of energy. We used to run miles together- all three of us. From what I witnessed, she is ok with cats, finds them interesting. She has never ever even growled at anything. Writing this makes me so sad because we just love her so much. I am so worried that I will regret this one day. She is the best companion. Oh, also she is not at all an outdoor dog. She is my little love bug.

Mia is being returned to Pup Squad because her family has suffered a major medical set back that requires around the clock care and she is no longer getting the attention she deserves. Mia was originally brought into the program in Jule of 2014 with her sister at just 2 days old. They were bottle fed by their foster mom and they both thrived and survived!

Our adoption fee is a $200.00 donation to Pup Squad Animal Rescue. Our adopted dogs are all spayed/neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped. If you are interested in adoption, please go to to read more about our policies and find our application. Applications should be submitted to or via the online form.

We are happy to transport our dogs out-of-state as we have lots of experience doing this and love to see our dogs to the best homes possible! We will assist with the whole process to getting your new pet to you. Feel free to email us regarding availability or any other questions. Please remember all breed estimates are just that...estimations based on our experience.

Thank you for choosing to rescue an animal in need!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Mia, a Houston Chihuahua/Basenji dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Chihuahua/Basenji for sale in Houston, or seeking a Chihuahua/Basenji 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/Basenji breeders who help with Chihuahua/Basenji rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Houston paves the way for another one to be saved.
