We are beyond grateful for Texas Chihuahua Rescue for our little Turkey. From her quirky ears and quirky personnality, we could not get ourselves to change her name. Turkey is as unique as her name. Thank you to Cathy for her phone calls. With the many questions I had sent by email. she kept it personal by chatting with me over the phone and reassuring me. She kept me updated and even went out of her way to help save travel time to pick up our pup, by getting us in contact with another adoptee travelling our way. She went above and beyond for us. I highhly recomment this rescue. They put the dogs first and look for the perfect fit, without scrutiny. Thank you for helping make our family complete.

Danni is my sweet little girl in the middle. Just had her DNA tested, and she is a chihuahua, border terrier and pomeranian mix She was originally to be a foster until she could find a forever home. But as soon as we met her, we knew this special girl would be with us forever. Now her and her sister Gizmo (the grey one) play together, and she snuggles with her other sister Chica (the black and tan one). Adoption process was smooth and easy. Am so glad we were able to connect, as Danni is one of the sweetest dogs you could ever meet!

After I lost my sweet girl, Spunky, after 16 years, my heart aches. I had my fiance's dog, a giant pittie, but I still missed my small dog. For months I looked for a reputable rescue to find a chi girl who I could give a sweet home too. One day, just scrolling through my Facebook, Aponi, now known as Vader, popped up on my screen with her big gorgeous eyes and floppy ears. I knew I had to put in an application, but knew it would probably get denied due to the fact I have a Pit in the house. To my surprise, two days later, I got a call saying I got her! My mom and I drove out to pick up this sweet girl and she's been our little wild child ever since. I love this sweet girl more than words can describe. She isn't a replacement to the girl I lost, she's an addition and she has a little Chihuahua guardian angel always looking out for her. Thank you TXCR for allowing me to give this girl a home full of love.

Texas Chichuahua is an awesome organization. They have amazing fosters and transporters and always do whatever it takes to find loving homes for these sweet misfortunate babies. I have adopted two little babies from them and love them to death. Their vet that they use does excellent work to ensure they are well vetted.

I have fostered for TXCR several times, and have enjoyed the experience. My latest foster, Persephone, is just such a cutie, and fit in so well with my pack, that I joined the ranks of 'foster fails' and adopted her. Even though she is not a Chi (she is a Pekingese), TXCR stepped in to save this sweetie, when contacted by the local SNAP (Spay Neuter Clinic), who found her and her son abandoned in their parking lot. TXCR does an amazing job rescuing, vetting, and caring for hundred of Chi's, mixes and honorary Chi's each year. They always do what is in the best interests of the dog, including providing often expensive medical care (dentals, as well) to every dog that needs it. Many rescue groups leave some or more of this care to the new adopters. I highly recommend TXCR as a reputable and caring organization to adopt from.

I just adopted a chihuahua mix through Texas Chihuahua Rescue, and the process exceeded all my expectations. I contacted them after seeing some of their available pets on AdoptAPet, They were extremely responsive from the beginning to the end to all my inquiries and questions. I ultimately adopted a 13 week old puppy, who had to be transported from Texas to Pennsylvania. She was not ready for travel for about a month, and during this waiting period, I was kept informed of the next steps, and very quickly had all my questions answered. TXCR took care of all the arrangments, and everything went perfectly. She arrived at the location and time that was designated, and it was obviously her trip north on a van full of rescues went very smooth. She was happy and healthy, and so ready to go to her forever home. It was obvious that her foster family took great care of her as she is calm, loving, and very sociable. The ladies transporting the dogs were angels. I even got a "check in" email the following morning. I would HIGHLY recommend this rescue organization to anyone. Through the process, it was apparent that the organization and its affiliates (including extended people, like fosters, transporters, and veterinarians) are made up of many individuals who truly believe in what they are doing and provide the best care to their rescues. I couldn't be happier.

You can't find a more friendly, helpful, quick to respond group of people who love what they do. We had been searching for a puppy to complete our little family and so many charities were very hard to get a hold of. Texas Chihuahua Rescue responded almost instantly to our emails and were very informative and patient in answering all my questions.

When the big day finally arrived to bring our little puppy home we were greeted by so many smiling excited faces at the pick up point. Everyone was so excited for us. Our little pupper is perfect.

Muggsy is so clam, I can tell that she was so well socialized and loved, it has made her transition into our lives seamless. Everyone at this organization loves what they do, and it shows in how well adjusted this little puppy is.

I can't recommend them enough.
:) Nicole, Devin + Muggsy

I would highly recommend Texas Chihuahua Rescue to anyone! This rescue organization does a great job of providing factual, accurate information about the dogs and puppies in their care, in order to find the best match for both the dog and the family.
I found this rescue (in Canada) when searching on Petfinder. We wanted to adopt a young dog, as opposed to buying from a breeder. I would encourage everyone to seriously consider this route. There are so many great dogs out there that need homes.
My questions throughout the adoption process were handled in a timely fashion, and very professionally. I was able to find out more info about our dog from the foster mom. We will forever be grateful to this fantastic rescue for our sweet pup Izzy (formerly Icee). She is a cuddly, people-oriented dog that is so smart. The volunteers here are incredible. From the foster moms/dads, to the transport and admin/organizers; they do a fantastic job.
Texas Chihuahua rescue takes in all kinds of breeds (Izzy is a mix); so please like their Facebook page(s). If you are in Canada, like their Texas Chihuahua Rescue - Canada page for up to date info about available dogs. The adoption process is very organized. The dogs are transported to their furever homes through the rescue, and this fee is included in the adoption fee.
I would recommend this rescue to anyone wanting to adopt. We are so happy with our experience and our sweet pup!
