Facts about Star

  • Breed: Chihuahua
  • Color: White - With Black
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Female
Star's owner passed away and a family member dropped her and her sister off at a kill shelter. Her owner loved her very much, in fact a little too much. Star needs to lose weight, we have gotten about 6 pounds off of her so far and continue working on weight loss. She is just a plump teddy bear that is very loving and well behaved. At just 5 yrs. of age, she has many more years to be a best friend and companion. No challenges to owning this sweetheart except keeping her on her diet. The sisters do not need to be kept together, they are available separately.

About Sahuaro Dachshund Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a group of volunteers that love the Dachshund breed. We foster each rescue so that we get to know each as an individual to help us place each in the best suited home for that dogs' needs. We will not re-home a 'biter' or a terminally ill dog with our knowledge. We want each adopter to get a loving and healthy pet that will make a wonderful companion and addition to their household. The dogs' are our first priority and finding them their perfect forever home is our goal.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our rescues can be met with an appointment. We do attend adoption events throughout the year in Tucson. We are listed on Petfinder and many veterinarians refer people to us, so does the Humane Society and often Animal Care Center.

Our Adoption Process...

We have an application obtainable by emailing us for one. We require references. Our fees vary by dog with puppies having the highest adoption fees. All adoption fees are put into the medical fund so that we may rescue and seek all veterinary care needed for each new rescued dog. All are spayed/neutered, vaccinations updated, health exam, any health issues tended to and each is micro-chipped prior to going to their new home.
