Estella's Story...

If you would like to adopt, please fill out an application at The adoption fee, including transportation to NY with vetting paperwork, microchip registration to adopter, collar & harness, is $400.

Estella is 4 years old and 5 lbs (she needs to gain weight). Sometimes I wish dogs could tell us their story and I so badly wish I knew Estella's. Estella came to us from a shelter on the border of Mexico frozen in fear. She was disgusting and had obviously not been cared for in a long time, if ever. She has a scar on her neck from a previously embedded collar. Her tail was also broken at some point and healed crooked. Estella allows you to fully handle her and she sinks into you when you hold her. But she avoids eye contact and doesn't seek attention from people. I'm assuming she has had very few positive experiences with people in the past and she breaks my heart. Every day I feel she opens up a tiny bit more but it's going to be a slow journey. I'm hoping we can find her a home that will show her what love is and understand that she will need time to open up. Estella would do best in a quiet home with no children. She gets defensive when dogs get up in her space so a home with calmer dogs that will give her space is preferred, or a home where she will be the only dog. She seems very fearful of bigger dogs. We may not know what happened to her before she came to us but at least we can guarantee she will have a happily ever after.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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