Acho's Story...
Age: 7 years

Weight: 8 lbs

Acho, it seems, is designed to be the perfect lap dog. Nothing he does pleases him more than to nuzzle into his person, an art he has perfected. He is the ultimate snuggler and you can see on his face how your presence, love and warmth are like heaven to him. (Take a look by clicking on on the "WATCH VIDEO" button under his picture.)

Acho is a devoted one-person dog and will follow you from room to room, sometimes plopping down right at your feet. But don't worry about him because he is pretty independent if you are out for the day.

This little fellow is a quiet gentleman who is well-behaved and undemanding. He warms up to strangers quickly. You will come to love his few cute little personality quirks. For example, he does not fancy loud music and will howl to show it.

Acho is house-broken and walks well on a leash, always the gentlemen. He is trustworthy enough to be left free-roaming while you're away. He does well with other dogs although he has limited interest and doesn't play.

When he came to Small Chance Rescue, he was in pretty bad shape -- heartworms, missing hair, and messy teeth, but he has bounced back magnificently. He is ready to be loved by the right person and return that love ten fold with devotion and companionship.

Acho would do well with someone who also appreciates quiet times and the physical warmth of a best friend. A person who prefers serenity to a ruckus. He does not need much space, so an apartment or condo are fine. So if you're looking for a serious snuggle-bug who needs you as much as you need him, then please submit an adoption application for Acho so you two can meet!

Adoption fee is $200.

If you are interested in adopting, please read our Frequently Asked Questions before completing the adoption application.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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