Dixon's Story...
​If you are looking for a sweet senior companion, Dixon may be your man! Dixon was turned in to the shelter with several other dogs because their owner could longer care for them, but he adjusted quickly in his loving foster home. Dix is a long-legged Chihuahua-terrier mix, weighs under ten pounds, and has been estimated to be 11 or 12 years old. But don’t let his age fool you….Dixon is a boy of many moods:at times he is quite active and playful and at other times he is the ultimate lap dog.
​Dixon enjoys riding in the car, taking walks around the neighborhood, and napping in the sun. He gets along well with the other small dogs in his foster home and he enjoys meeting people who come to visit. But when he encounters unfamiliar dogs or people when he’s on a walk or out in public, he gets very excited and barks a lot! Dixon loves spending his evenings on his foster mom’s lap and he wants to sleep under the covers in someone’s bed each night.
Dixon has an old injury on one of his legs that doesn't bother him a single bit. He also just had his teeth professionally cleaned by the vet and he is so happy about that!!
​Dixon is a precious boy who is in good health and still has much love to give. He is neutered, current on vaccinations, microchipped, dewormed, tested negative for heart worms, and is current on trifexis. He is fostered in Huntsville, AL but is available for adoption in your area. To fill out an application, go to http://forrescue.net/dog-application.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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