Colin is an adorable, low-maintenance little guy who looks just like a tiny deer. He has a beautiful coat and markings, and when he lays in the sun, he just seems to glow. He is a bit shy initially with strangers, and will stand back for a few minutes to assess new friends, then approach them.

Once he gets to know you, he is a happy, outgoing, lovable little guy. He'll show you, too, with a wagging tail that won't stop! When you pet his foster brothers and sisters, he'll run in and sneak some kisses on your hand and then dance away like he just won some sort of doggie game. He loves his people, and follows his foster mom everywhere. If there's attention to be had, he dances all around making sure he gets his fair share! To see a video of Colin in action, check out

Colin gets along great with other little dogs and loves to play with his brother and sister Chihuahuas. His favorite thing to do is tumble around on the floor with them. If Chihuahuas are ready to play, you'll find Colin in the middle of the pile loving life! If nobody's lap is available, you'll find him in the doggie bed with his other siblings. It is a precious sight to see when he is curled up cuddling with his buddies. While Colin obviously enjoys his canine companions, it is his people who are his top priority!! He loves going for walks on a leash, so, if you like to walk, he would love to be your walking companion, but he's good at lap-warming, too. If you are looking for a fun, laid-back little guy who will always be there for you with a wagging tail and a lot of love, please fill out an application to meet Colin today!

Colin is neutered, micro chipped, up-to-date on shots, HW negative and on heartworm prevention. He is ready to join a loving family - could you be his perfect home?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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