Pelusa's Story...
Meet Pelusa - Pelusa’s owner died about a year ago and her owner’s relatives were planning to let Pelusa, her two siblings and her parents loose or take them to BARC. A concerned neighbor stepped up and sheltered all five dogs in her back porch. Pelusa ended up in a foster home but her foster mom is expecting a baby and can no longer care for her.
Pelusa has been fully vetted, spayed and micro chipped. She weighs 6.8 lbs and is a very sweet dog. She is loving and plays well with the other dogs. Pelusa will make a great addition to a home searching for a sweet dog. For more information, contact

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Pelusa, 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.
