BUNS's Story...
"Buns" was one of five litter mates rescued a year ago, at 8 weeks of age. Each puppy from the Doxy-Chi mom/mystery dad looked completely different. "Buns" got the smooth coat, long legged, mini pinscher looks. He is also one of two in the litter who (both) overcame parvo, soon after their third round of puppy shots. "Buns" is a Survivor, strong and confident, and eternally grateful, as he begs to curl up on your lap and be held as he was so lovingly, during his illness. At home, he is playful and frisky and quite a delight, but at adoption events, Buns is a little devil, barking at every dog that comes by. So, unfortunately, Buns gets picked over for the calmer, quieter dogs, but it is mainly crates that are his demons. Buns has a born free attitude and does not like to be confined, plus it is a throwback to his parvo puppy days when he had to be restricted. Away from the crowds. Buns is very sweet and obedient. He is always upbeat and cheerful and brightens up a room by his very presence. So please come by Tuesday's Rice University Farmer's Market, 4-7pm, and try if you can to ignore the barking from one of the cages and meet our Angel in Disguise. Contact Janice at or 713.592.2299 to arrange a meeting with "Buns".

Why Adoption is a Great Option

BUNS, a Houston 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 Houston, or seeking a Dachshund/Chihuahua dog from a breeder in Houston.

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