Estrella's Story...
Have you ever seen an Armadillo up close? I'm told that I look just like one! What do you think? Don't laugh---I can get my feelings hurt! Did you know that Estrella means 'Star' in Spanish? I'm a female, Dachshund/Chihuahua mix and approximately 2-3 years old. I'm a little on the red side and have a big white star on my chest, hence Estrella. I am shy around people at first and then I warm up. It might take me about 30 minutes to see that you are a pretty nice person and let down my guard. I am very friendly and very quiet. I just waddle and follow you around. I like other dogs and tolerate being shoved around. I don't really want to play much though. I don't think I'm up to jogging in the park though. I like to nuzzle up to your legs and just sit there between them. That's my favorite spot when I'm outside. People can't see me sometimes if I'm behind your legs! The lady who transports me to adoption days, thinks I'm one of the nicest dogs she has met. I'm pretty much housetrained and don't destroy anything. I probably would be better with older kids since little 2-3 year olds might move quickly and scare me. I love being held, but you have to watch out when you pick me up. You see, the doctor hurt my feelings, when he put on my paperwork "OBESE". I'm must be big boned with lots of meat on the bones! So, I weigh 22-1/2 pounds, am low to the ground, and short in length. I don't want you to hurt your back when you pick me up. Yes, my foster dad, gives me plenty of food. The doctor recommends dieting as soon as possible, but my foster dad likes me to be a little rolly-polly. So maybe I'll put off dieting until I get into my new, forever home. Besides that, I am healthy and heartworm negative. Please come visit me at the Humble Petco at Hwy 59 and FM 1960 on Saturdays from 12:30 to 4:30 pm. I'll make you laugh and smile.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Humble 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 Humble 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 Dachshund/Chihuahua breeders who help with Dachshund/Chihuahua rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Humble paves the way for another one to be saved.
