As for most, and all rescues listed here, their dogs are cared for in healthy, safe, and loving foster home environments prior to permanent adoption.
All dogs available through CRT are spayed/neutered, fully vaccinated, heartworm tested, fecal tested, microchipped, on heartworm preventative, and have all other veterinary needs taken care of.
There are three main Chihuahua rescues in Texas.
At least, these are the ones that you should be contacting first and foremost.
They are all reputable, highly knowledgable rescues with many years of practical experience – not just in rescuing, rehabilitation, and rehoming, but with this specific breed in general.
So, do reach out to each rescue and hold some preliminary conversations.
Register your interest and provide any information that each rescue needs to find the right dog for you.
Trust in the process, be patient and be willing and able to wait; this will only ensure that you get the right dog, for you and your circumstances.
And lastly, before you do take a Chihuahua on – be sure you have what it takes to look after and care for this toy breed.
They are lively and courageous so it’s essential that know or are able to develop the means to care for them appropriately.
And with that said, I wish you all of the best in your search for a Chihuahua.
The right one will come when the time is right.
