Phoenix's Story...

"Please allow let me introduce myself...I'm a man of wealthhhh and fame....🎶. Ok I, not with The Rolling Stones but there are those out there who think my name should be Mick 'cause I got those lips like lipstick and all! My name is Phoenix and I am a 1 year old, 9 pound male Chihuahua mix. My foster mom says I'm the "perfect dog". I love other dogs and people. I like small children as long as they don't smother me with too much attention. I am crate trained, but now have the privilege of sleeping on the bed at night with some of my doggie friends. I'm a little reluctant to go outside. "It's cold out there!" But that is where I do my business like all doggies should. I am looking for a forever family to snuggle up with for life..."

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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