Nakoma's Info...

I am already spayed, up to date with shots, not good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Nakoma's Story...
**PLEASE READ TO THE END FOR IMPORTANT INFORMATION.**

Nakoma is 4 years old and weighs 4 lbs. Nakoma came to us from ACS where she was taken as part of a cruelty investigation. Nakoma also had an old injury to her back leg that couldn't be repaired, so now she's a tri-pawd. Nakoma adjusted wonderfully to her amputation as she had already been unable to use her injured leg for so long. Nakoma can best be described as sugar and spice. She loves people so much and just wants to be held and loved. On the other hand, Nakoma hates cats even though they are bigger than her. She also hates dogs bigger than her if she is on the ground with them. She feels the need to boss them around, which isn't good for her own safety, meaning she probably shouldn't live with bigger dogs or left unattended with them. She is fostered with a GSD and is a very good girl when mommy is watching but becomes a bit feisty when she's not.

If you would like to adopt Nakoma, please fill out an application at www.TexasChihuahuaRescue.com. Her adoption fee, including transportation to PA with vetting paperwork, microchip registration to adopter, collar & harness, is $400.

Additional photos and videos will be made available to potential adopters upon approval of our online adoption application.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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