HEATHER's Story...
"A sweet little red headed Irish-looking gal should have a similarly sweet and beautiful name," said one of our volunteers - and so HEATHER was christened! She was surrendered to a local kill shelter after being attacked by a large dog. They didn't want to pay for HEATHER's vet bills. Terrified, traumatized and truly freaked out, HEATHER was left with nasty looking puncture wounds on her back end. Unsure of the extent of her injuries, the Intake Coordinators at Ay Chihuahua Rescue didn't care what they might be - they fell in love with little HEATHER and vowed to make it right - both physically and emotionally. A swift trip to our favorite vet, and Balcones happily declared her bones intact, but her puncture wounds deep into the muscle tissue and infected. They will heal - faster than her psyche most likely, but HEATHER is gaining more and more confidence every day. Her shy and skittish behavior is slowly transforming to a sweet acceptance of kindness and her eyes are no longer as haunted as they were upon her arrival. HEATHER is only 1 year old and a wee 5 lbs of recovering pup. She will need an understanding family that can see past her recent trauma and glimpse the sweet and loving Chihuahua just ready to burst forth!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

HEATHER, 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.
