Facts about Matthew

  • Breed: Chihuahua
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn

  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 11036927-D2017005
Matthew is not your typical 2.5 year old chihuahua! He doesn't shiver and quake in the midst of chaos! He has a bravado that is adorable and worthy of respect. He is just as suave and confident as his namesake in Hollywood!

He gets along well with all dogs he has encountered so far, large and small alike. He loves to play, bounce all over the house with a joyous attitude that is heartwarming. At his foster dad's home, he loves to explore the outdoor space during the day and enjoy his people time in the evening. He is great with men, women, and kids. He enjoys the occasional morning runs (3 miles!) but could use regular playtime.

He is housebroken at his foster dad's place and when he visits guest, you have to show him where the powder room for him is until he gets the hang of it.

If you are interested in learning more about him or adopting him, please visit our website at www.shelter2rescue.org. His adoption fee is $200 which includes, up to date vaccination, rabies, deworming, spay/neuter, and microchip with registration. For more information, please contact Femila at 817-683-2248

About Shelter2Rescue Coalition

About Our Rescue Group...

Shelter2Rescue Coalition is an all-volunteer rescue organization dedicated to the safe-rehoming of shelter animals. We started as a rescue facilitation organization, helping rural shelters publicize their at-risk dogs, thereby dramatically reducing the need to euthanize for space. Then, as we worked with more shelters, it became very apparent that if we could just buy the dogs up for euthanasia just a little more time, you could save even more lives. The 72-hour hold limit at most shelters just wasn't enough for most dogs to get out. Therefore, we expanded and built partnerships with boarding facilities, transport organizations and other nationwide rescues in order to be able to provide a temporary safe haven for dogs out of time. We have now expanded Shelter2Rescue Coalition to include our own adoption program. Since June 2007, through facilitation and adoption, Shelter2Rescue Coalition volunteers have saved over 2000 dogs and cats.

Our Adoption Process...

We do our best to match up potential adopters with just the right pet as we want to ensure a lifelong placement for the rescued animal. Our adoption process includes an initial application, with home visit, reference and vet checks. If the match is a good one, we then have an adoption contract that is executed. We have a commitment not only to our adopted dogs, but also to the families that adopt them, and we are always available to help with the transition to a new home. We check in during the first few weeks to answer any questions or help with any issues - or to just give you someone to brag to about your new baby. We can't hear that too much!
