Callista's Story...

This gorgeous girl is Callista, a seven pound ebony, 1 yr old chi who was surrendered to a rural shelter with her housemates. She was terrified at the shelter, and it took a patient and kind foster to bring her out of her shell and get her ready to trust people again. Miss Callista is shy with new people, but once she knows you, she wants to hang out with you all the time. She's house trained and she's learning to be comfortable outside, so Callista will need a secure fence to keep her safe as she settles in. Calli is also learning to play, and likes her Kong toy. She's not interested in cats, and tolerates other dogs, but she's still learning to play with them. If you would like to make Callista part of your family, please fill out an application online at and include her name at the top.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Callista, 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.
