DALLAS!'s Story...

This adorable little guy is named Dallas! He's a 9 year old Chihuahua who was able to bypass the shelter-system and was surrendered to City of Elderly Love because his former family ran into some hardships and was unable to care for him any longer. Dallas landed a great foster home where he's ditched his shy, scared exterior and has blossomed into a snuggly lap dog. Now that he's feeling more comfortable, he's decided to begin his hunt for a family who will match his award-winning personality!

Dallas is a little guy with a big heart. He took about a week to settle into his new foster home and can be a little jumpy in new situations or loud sounds, though he's settling in more and more each day. He is currently living with a large older dog who he is happy to share his space with, but isn't overly interested in playing. He enjoys meeting other small dogs while on walks and will try to appear larger by barking at the big doggies, but its all talk. Dallas reportedly lived with cats in his previous home but has not since coming to the rescue. His absolute favorite thing to do is go for walks. He'll do a little dance when he sees his leash come out! Dallas is housebroken! While shy around new people and can be a bit nippy if he doesn't know you well and you move too quickly to interact, once Dallas knows you, he'll be your best little friend! Because he can be a bit fearful, Dallas should not live with young children. His favorite spot in the house right now is on his foster mom's lap. He gives gentle kisses and will snooze the day away right on top of you if you let him! Could this pint-sized cutie be the new man in your life?

Dallas is available for adoption through City of Elderly Love. He is neutered, vaccinated and will be microchipped prior to going to his forever home. He also recently had his teeth cleaned and a couple no good ones extracted. Interested in adopting him? Visit to complete an online adoption questionnaire or email us at!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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