Tink's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, and good with kids.

Tink's Story...

Tink is a 6-year-old little lady who has been a hard nut to crack. She came in to us very fearful, almost feral, and high heartworm positive. After months of heartworm treatment and foster love, she is now ready for adoption. The ways of the streets will always be with Tink. You can see it in her face. She is always hyperaware of her surroundings, has a worrisome look on her face, and is always ready to run! Tink is a runner. If the door is open, that is it, she is gone. We have chased this dog for more than 2 hours at a time. She has been with 3 fosters because everyone is terrified of losing her. Tink needs a special home with a Fort Knox backyard and a Tink-proof front entrance.

While she has some baggage, Tink also has so many amazing qualities. Once she gets to know you, she is loyal and loving and wants to be by your side or in your lap. She is good with other dogs. She crates well and has good potty manners. She is not a yapper. We know this 7 lb cutie can be a bit much to care for, but we are confident we can find her a good home with the love and understanding along with the vigilance that she needs to have a safe and happy life.

If you would like to adopt Tink, please fill out an application at Her adoption fee, including vetting paperwork, microchip registration to adopter, collar & harness, is $200.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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