GRACIE's Info...

I am already spayed, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.

GRACIE's Story...
Tiny little GRACIE was originally surrendered to a local kill shelter by her family. Quickly adopted, she was soon picked up as a stray with a gimpy right back leg. When they contacted her adopted family they said they "didn't want her back." GRACIE didn't deserve to be abandoned. GRACIE is a good girl! At only 5 lbs and between 1-2 yr old, we may never know how her back leg was injured. All we know is that she has needed some vet care and could use your support. GRACIE is currently in foster where another month of crate living is what she can expect. Was she hit by a car? Or worse... abused by her "family" that didn't want her back? GRACIE's injuries remain a mystery. Her personality, however is not. She is vibrant, playful and ready for a family that is willing to let GRACIE just be the joyful puppy that she is! If you would like to contribute to GRACIE's vet bills, you can do so at through our Donate by PayPal option on the home page or our "Meet the Dogs" page. Just put "For Gracie" in the notes field and we will make sure that your donations are marked for her vet bills and recovery costs.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

GRACIE, 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.
