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

We think Rafiki is the most handsome boy in the world! He weighs 9 lbs and is 3 years old. Rafiki is a very special boy who is looking for a special home. When we first brought him to TXCR, it wasn't obvious that something was wrong with him, but we soon realized something wasn't quite right. We took him for xrays and discovered that he was apparently hit by a car. Our vet said it was a miracle Rafiki was up, walking around, and without pain. His hip was crushed and was so damaged that surgery wasn't an option. His hip has healed on its own with no mobility complications other than a bit of a swagger that hasn't slowed him down one bit. Rafiki is ready to find his forever home and a family or person who is willing to spoil him and help him live life to the fullest. The only accommodation Rafiki needs is stool softeners added to his meals. These are extremely inexpensive and can be bought over the counter at any pharmacy/HEB/Wal-Mart.

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

Texas Chihuahua Rescue is based in San Antonio, Texas. All of our adoptable dogs are located in the San Antonio area. Additional photos and videos will be made available to potential adopters upon approval of our online adoption application. Transport arrangements will be made upon application approval and completion of the adoption agreement.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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