My story

Rico was living at the apartment complex behind the Westside Clinic on Greenwood Rd. He had been there a long time and the residents were feeding him. He would make the rounds for food.
He is very street smart. He is still friendly and he likes people. I am sure he would love to be a couch potato and watch TV with his new family.
He is house-trained and walks on a leash.
He has his microchip and is neutered.

Why adoption is a great option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Corpus Christi 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 Corpus Christi 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/Dachshund breeders who help with Chihuahua/Dachshund rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Corpus Christi paves the way for another one to be saved.
