Emily's Story...
Meet Emily – This sweet little girl showed up at Barrio Dogs’ FixIt Community Education Day at Hidalgo Park in October 2012. She appeared to have been recently dumped; local residents at the park said they had not seen her before. She got adopted soon thereafter but due to no fault on her part, the adoption did work out. She just wasn’t a good mix with the home’s other dogs.

Emily is a Chihuahua mix, about a year old, ten pounds and heart and intestinal worm negative. She has been spayed and completely vetted. She is a very sweet, charming dog and is kennel-trained. She likes to be around people and but is a little afraid of larger dogs.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Emily, a Houston Chihuahua dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Chihuahua for sale in Houston, or seeking a 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 Chihuahua breeders who help with Chihuahua rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Houston paves the way for another one to be saved.
