Jimmy's Story...

Jimmy is an amber-eyed, 6 year old, 11 pound, ginger and tan Daschund/Chihuahua mix who was surrendered in rough condition by an owner who had too many dogs.
Jimmy is quiet and low energy, and prefers Netflix and chill to a busy schedule. He coexists with other dogs, and he's uninterested in cats. He'd be great as a only dog because he's not usually interested in playing. Jimmy is housetrained and crate-trained, and alerts when he wants to go outside. Jimmy lost many teeth after his recent dental, probably due to a poor diet, so he's working on putting on some needed weight.
Mostly Jimmy wants to enjoy life in a low key home with plenty of snacks and a fluffy bed or two. He offers low drama, snuggles, and the occasional doggy kiss in return.
If you would like to make Jimmy a part of your family please fill out an application online at and include his name at the top.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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