Just got my second rescue from this agency. Quite impressed by the care they take to match dogs to people. Joked with my husband that it was like adopting a kid! You must read the biography of the dogs you are interested in though to make sure you are willing to take on the responsibility, remember this could be a 15-20 year commitment.

I adopted Elora a year ago this August. Having never been a doggy mom before I was concerned about adopting. I was impressed with the process the Texas Chihuahua Rescue puts you through and the effort they go to to make sure you and your rescue are compatible. The forms, the interviews, etc. It took about 3 days before I saw a tail wag but it was like I was a little kid at Christmas I was so excited. Elora and I are inseparable now. I have even gotten used to being watched on the toilet! I want to thank the Texas Chihuahua Rescue for all their hard work and encourage one and all to think of them when looking for your next companion.

I cannot recommend this Rescue enough!! We adopted Ozzy (TXCR Timone) November 6, 2021 and he has brought us so much joy already. A special shout out to our coordinator Diane who was incredibly responsive and helpful. The dogs are neutered, vet checked, microchipped and vaccinated before they are brought to their new owners. TXCR also provides you with a full info package when you pick up your dog which has all the info you need. You can tell that everyone involved with this rescue genuinely cares about these dogs and wants them to have the best life possible. Ozzy is so special and we are so grateful we are able to give him a new home with lots of love and cuddles. Thank you TXCR for bringing us together!

The time from submitting our application to picking up our new dog was just over two months. We were fortunate to be matched fairly quickly and were prepared to have a much longer wait based on the what we wanted and the type of home environment we could provide. During that time, our assigned coordinator exchanged several emails with us, along with a virtual home visit, to be approved in general and then to be specifically matched with a particular dog. Our coordinator was professional and provided information through the entire process including updating us on new medical information (giving us the option to decline our match based on this). We have had Loki home for just over a week and are very happy with him and the entire process.

Hello everyone I came to this Rescue 2.5 years ago, I had just lost my to senior Chi's to old age. Never wanted any more dogs, it hurt to much, but I became depressed and lonely without my babies of 17 years. Three months later my friend who works with Texas Recue said put in an application to adopt they check you out then they help you find the perfect match for you. The puppies are Rescues and are Vet checked, micro chipped, spayed or neutered, they are rescued from shelters, hoarding situations, off the streets, you would be saving these poor babies life and giving them a new lease on life and love. Like every month there was a transport coming up September 2019 she said come and see what is all about so I did , it was a fabulous set up very professional , after being approved I was able to look at the puppies who were left available because some were already adopted before they came , now it is all done online due to the covid. Well I picked this cute lil black and brown with floppy ears lol, but they said that is awesome but she is bonded with a sister and we can't separate them, my heart sunk, then my husband out of the blue said we will take both we have always had two so we will take the both of them I was estatic my broken heart they had restored. They check on you to see how everything is going with you and the puppies or if I needed to ask them anything they were there for us. After a short time I wanted to do more so we decided to fill out an application to foster and have been taking in and sending puppies to there new fulfilled homes and a better life. Oh ! by the way we just adopted our second set of bonded sisters which we didn't think that would ever happen but was love at first sight and that was it lol. Texas Chihuahua Rescue is a fantastic ,trusting ,loyal, and very caring rescue and I thank them for everything they do for everyone and me but most of all first for those puppies. Thank you for everything !

Well I very recently lost my two furbabies 6 months apart Spice 16 and Bullet 12. I was devastated and lost and I went to a Chihuahua site just for comfort n healing and my friend Cindy Westover (Adopter n Fosterer) suggested this site on FB Texas Chihuahua Rescue Canada and they were having a event in Hamilton. Well I couldn't resist and decided to go to see what it was all about. Well I just happen to put my application just a few days before not thinking nothing was gonna happen right away for us. They were so busy adopting out those beauties that traveled all the way from Texas and each and everyone of those furbabies look so happy to be going to there forever homes.Dianne came over to me at the end and said I don't k ow if I can do anything for us I was feeling crushed , she brought someone over with higher authority and I was approved (by the way that doesn't usually happens that fast), zI started to cry with happy tears and guilt with the thought of replacing my lost loves ...well guess what ! We went home with not one but two bonded sisters Libby n Lily who I swear are heaven sent ! And I know we didn't adopt them they adopted us. Thank you all for a beautiful and humbling experience. ❤

We adopted Stella in August of 2020. The entire process of adopting a rescue through TXCR was so easy. Our coordinator Diane was the best to work with. She is so attentive and was on it when we wanted to place a hold on a dog. Stella has been a perfect little angel for us and we could not have gotten a better rescue. Highly recommend TXCR for finding your next fur baby

We lost our dog Riley earlier this year. We were so lonely without dog in the house. Then my daughter told us about your wonderful rescue organization. We got on the list of approved adopters and patiently waited. Well last Saturday we picked up our little button, Ellie. We love her to bits and she is enjoying her new forever home. The folks at the Texas Chihuahua Rescue were very helpful along the way and were just as excited as we were to get our Ellie. Thank you so much. We would highly recommend the TXCR to anyone!!

What a truly wonderful organization!

We adopted Bixby, now SUKI on September 11th.

Suki is the perfect addition to our pack, her energy is soo infectious, it makes anyone who walks her want to go out and solve world hunger or bring world peace!

Thank you to all the hardworking volunteers, staff, administrators, adoption reps.
You all deserve a HUGE hug (when we are allowed to hug people again) for the tireless work you do. We appreciate it and you.

TRULY! we do.

Thank you for enriching our pack.

I’ve adopted twice from TCRX and could not be happier. They are caring, responsible, and super professional on every level. Our dogs came to us in fantastic shape and were obviously very well cared for on the Ranch. I would (and have) recommend this rescue for anyone looking to add a furry member to their family …they are top notch.

We adopted Rosie (formerly Bam Bam) from the Texas Chihuahua Rescue in August 2021. Originally, we had been planning on just fostering her, but we fell in love before she got out of the transfer van. She's the perfect fit for our family, it's like she's always been here. I can't wait to see how big she is when she finishes growing! Thanks to the TXCR for all of their help, support and the work they do for the dogs. You are literally saving lives. I'm so glad that not only am I able to adopt, but I'm able to help this great organization.

My little Charlotte came to me in 2019 thanks to TXCR and all their amazing work! From day one they were kind and compassionate ensuring the right pup was placed with the right family. They are open about each dog and their abilities/needs. They even went so far as to contact me before my girl came home to let me know she wasn’t quite potty trained and to offer me a chance to adopt another if this was an issue (clearly it was not an issue). An absolutely wonderful rescue that I would not hesitate to adopt from again!

TXCR is an amazing organization. I can’t thank and commend the volunteers and fosters enough for their hard work and dedication to finding the best homes for these pups in need.

It hasn't been more than a couple days but Guster (Gus) and I are having a blast. He arrived in Canada in great condition. It is such a long way from Texas. We have gone to the beach a couple of times and he loves it. So many people to meet! Honestly I could think of a more perfect dog for me. He is healthy and happy. What more could anyone want.!

I have adopted 12 dogs from Texas Chihuahua Rescue since December 2016. I have a passion for the seniors, the special needs, and the unadoptable dogs and TXCR rescues them all. They provide the best veterinary care, proper vaccines, microchips, transport, and love, before finding the best home for each and every dog. I'm one of the lucky ones who get to be a repeat adopter, and will always have room for another little TXCR floof at the Dogue Haus!

Everything you could hope for in a rescue organization. Caring, loving, professional, proving excellent medical care and forever homes for the most euthanized breed of dog, and staffed entirely by volunteers. I don't remember how I found out about TXCR, but have followed them on Facebook for some time. When 2 little Chiweenies were posted, both with birth defects to their front legs, I commented "I would love to take them but I live in Kentucky". "We transport" said the Director. I am now the exhausted owner of 2- 5 month old Chiweenies who have taken over my house, my heart, and my pack. I will highly recommend you consider adopting one of the sweet Cheeps that have been rescued and cared for by this wonderful organization. And remember, you can't have just one Chihuahua. They're small, so you need 2 or 3 of them~ Terry Baker

Personally, this organization is way too picky on their requirements for adopting a dog. After weeks of conversing back-and-forth, We were denied the opportunity to adopt, solely based on the fact that my cats were not up to date on their most recent rabies shot. Even though they were scheduled to get the shot in the next few days (to which we proved the apts.) We had 2 references, in which both gave us great reviews.
In my opinion.. find another organization to adopt your new family member from.

We are so thankful to TXCR for our little Phoebe. She is the sweetest, most loving pup and we are thrilled to have her. The before photos of her covered with mange broke my heart, but TXCR nursed her back to health and now we are able to give her the life she always deserved, full of love and snuggles. It took a while to get matched with her, but they really want to make sure it's the right fit. She was absolutely worth the wait, she's perfect.

This is my second time rescuing through TXCR and I will recommend this rescue to whomever will listen. These dogs are given an amazing second chance at a very reasonable price for the new family. These dogs may have had homes in the past but not all. If you are will to put in a bit of work you will never regret it. My two are besties after 2 weeks. They have playdates with large dogs next door and love everyone. They are both Amazing

I have no experience with small dogs. My last 2 were rottweilers, finding myself dogless for first time in 20 years, We decided to go much smaller. I had no idea on breed but I knew I prefer a clean face. Chihuahuas were smaller than planned so I set out to find a larger one. Found this site online and I could not stop looking. My husband agreed to whatever would stop my heartbreak of losing last pet. Everyday I looked at available dogs and showed my husband. I loved Victoria on sight but wanted an adult. My short list was cut in half because of pending adoptions. Victoria was still available. I admit I cried. From the vet checks to home check video I was blown away at the thoroughness and the care that goes into these babies. I had a 4 hour drive after a sleepless night and waited an extra hour due to traffic. The moment I saw Victoria I started crying. She was everything I never knew I needed. She is nothing like I thought a small dog would be. She is a bigger girl and perfect for my active life. My vet got hugs and kisses, after her check up. And I have taken her for walks and laughed as she splashed in the ditch. I have had her less than a week and she has my heart and eyes that look into my soul. I tell everyone about texaschihuahuarescue.org and am waiting till my husband agree on another Angel

From the beginning stage to interviewing our family, to thorough and complete details on all their rescues, to the adoption process, transport and pick-up to the follow up has been an absolutely incredible experience. Not once were my questions left unanswered, not once did I feel unsupported or left in the dark. TCR is an honest, hard-working and legitimate rescue who are an absolute honour to work with.

We were tipped off about this organization from a local who had the sweetest dog. After going through the application process, we started applying for so many sweet dogs. The entire process was so well organized and thorough - and was assured that even though we didn’t get the first few we applied for everyone gets the dog they deserve. Boy were they right. We’ve had our little man Cooper for under a month and he’s absolutely perfect. Not only that, this organization makes sure all pups come neutered, microchipped, vaccinated etc which was a huge relief. All the coordination and fostering was so amazing and could not recommend this rescue organization any more. Thanks so much Texas Rescue for helping us complete our family with such a lovely pooch. The entire team was just incredible and so well organized.

I not only got a dog, I got a new family. I worked with a few rescue agencies from the start I saw a difference working with Texas Chihuahua Rescue. They responded quickly to my application, and every communication thereafter. The coordinator truly listened to what I was looking in for our dog. I could not help but also reach out and volunteer my time with them, and donate to help them as much as they helped us. I will never forget the day we got dash (aka Merle). I could tell he was well taken care of from his temperament. Thank you TCR, he has blended in perfectly

We had been waiting for a long time to adopt a dog and had no luck with our local rescues (from Ottawa Ont area)

One of our friends recommended TXCR and we were soon interviewed and on a pre approved adoption list.

About 4 months later we got approved for our now 5 month old puppy Nyx (formally Gale) and we honestly couldn’t be happier!

We have been recommending TXCR to all of our friends and families and will definitely adopt from them again in the future! They make the process so easy, and they support you every step of the way from applications to after adoption!

Thank you for choosing us as our girl’s forever home! ❤️

We just adopted Piper (formerly Pedro) from TCRC and were so impressed with the entire process and particularly our Coordinator Teri. Being new to rescuing, we were amazed that we could apply and once pre-approved that our application could stay on file - only having to submit a ‘hold’ request once we saw a dog we felt would be a good fit for us. Teri was really helpful and patient during our interview and answered all of our questions. Once pre-approved, she would also send along bios of available dogs in addition to the ones we saw on Facebook. We were discouraged after a few months having made numerous applications but not getting selected but she encouraged us to be patient as the number of potential adopters was very great. It was simply a matter of the right dog coming available at the right time and surely enough, we applied for and were told we were number one on the list if we wanted Pedro. His description turned out to be exactly what we had hoped for: he is smart, house-trained, loving, gentle, loves people and just a perfect little gentleman. We took him to our vet this morning (picked him up on Saturday) and she said we’re very lucky as he is a wonderful little guy. I should point out also that she was really impressed with the vet assessment and treatment in Texas - she said they did a fabulous job so kudos to the organization for the standards of care they provide. Apparently not all rescue dogs come with the same level of veterinary preparation.
We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Texas Chihuahua Rescue Inc. and the Canadian arm to anyone looking to provide a loving home to a dog and are thankful for the volunteers for their caring and efforts! It’s a big win for all of us!

I found TXCR by Googling bc there didn’t seem to be many chihuahuas up for adoption in NY. I cannot say enough about this organization. They do their due diligence in approving you as an adopter and given that information, picked a dog who they thought would be a good fit. They asked if I was interested and I knew immediately that this was my little one. She could not be sweeter. From my coordinator, Tracey Core, and the transport team, (I worked mostly with the fabulous Kelly), this organization is top notch. I never had to wait long for a question to be answered or for my new puppy mom worries to be settled. Do it!

We had an amazing experience working with the Texas Chihuahua Rescue organization. Their team was very helpful and professional right from the start and continues to be a great resource for us now that our pups have joined the family. My husband and I adopted a bonded pair and we are completely in love with them! It took a while to find the right match due to the large number of people looking to adopt right now, but our coordinator, Tracey, was very supportive and reassuring that it was worth the wait to find the right fit. She was right and we couldn't be happier! It's great that TXCR really takes the time to review applications and ensure that their dogs find the best home where they will be happiest. Some organizations just go by who's next on the wait list, but the care and thought that the TXCR team puts into each and every adoption is the reason we chose to work with them. An outstanding group of people who we are forever grateful to for bringing our sweet girls into our lives.

I adopted Pedro (TXCR Trout) one week ago, but it seems like he's been here a lot longer. He's an absolute dream! He learned his new name quite quickly, knows our daily routine, loves his food (he's lost a few ounces, but needs to lose more), loves cuddling and massages, and I could go on and on. My other dog is a little protective of me, but Pedro has put him in his place. His fosters did an amazing job and I couldn't be more thankful. We're truly fortunate to have this little guy in our lives and I look forward to be able to adopt another in the future.

Fantastic experience with Texas Chihuahua Rescue as an adopter. It's been a month since I got my dog from this rescue organization and I'm over the moon. TXCR was professional from the beginning. It took some time to finally match with a dog (due to high demand), but it was a smooth process and the coordinator in my region was pleasant and helpful. I found the dog's profile was accurate and she arrived in great health. The pickup was well coordinated and the volunteer's were friendly.

I have to start by saying that the Entire experience from start to finish of adopting our newest family member was By Far the Most Organized, Efficient and Enjoyable! We were helped by Catherine G. in the process of adopting Lucy (formerly Dally). Immediately during that first phone call, I felt I had made a new friend! The amount of time and dedication to these beautiful animals is incredible! I had a lot of questions, and she was happy to provide all the answers! She always took my phone calls and made me feel like I was the only person adopting a fur baby! She even got Tamie (yet another wonderful person) to send me videos of Lucy! I would HIGHLY recommend the Texas Chihuahua Rescue, Inc. to everyone interested in a great experience adopting a new family member! The animals are taken such great care of by compassionate, loving volunteers, and fosters! And let’s not forget to mention the Amazing transport team!!

After losing both our senior chihuahuas (ages 13 & 16) so close together, and when we were ready we wanted to give a senior chihuahua a fur-ever home. We decided to go with the TXCR and completed an application for a senior chihuahua online, and everything else just fell into place. We were then contacted by Diane Stanley, our coordinator. She went through the whole process with us and answered any questions or concerns we had. Diane helped us find our perfect sweetest senior boy Mickey (formerly Marc). He arrived to us safe and sound on November 14, 2020.

We would like to thank all the volunteers and fosters in Texas and Canada, the coordinators and the volunteers who make the long drive from Texas to Canada with our precious fur babies.

A very special thank you to Diane our coordinator for all you do for these little helpless fur babies. Without you, we would not have our sweet little Mickey (formerly Marc).

A very special thank you to Maria Strand, who fostered our sweet little Mickey (formerly Marc) for us.

Texas Chihuahua Rescue, Canada Inc., is an excellent dog rescue that goes beyond and above for all the dogs in their care. We highly recommend TXCR to anyone looking to adopt a dog. We would certainly adopt another dog from this rescue.

What a great organization to adopt from. We went through a thorough check and interview with very pleasant volunteers. Everything was clearly communicated and explained and when we found the right pup for us, the adoption process was seamless, even during covid. We have such a great addition to our family and couldn’t be happier.

I started the adoption process a couple of weeks ago and I was pre-approved quickly and then I was able to adopt Tyson, who arrives June 5.
The whole process was very professional, and my coordinator, Kim, was very friendly, and professional.
The list of questions that I was sent to respond to, seemed like a lot at first, but they were very thought provoking and really made me think if I really wanted another dog and all that goes along with it, or if I just liked the idea of a cute little dog. Turns out, I wanted another dog. So glad the adoption process is so in-depth.
EDIT: Picked up Tyson on June 5 and he has been a sweet little boy, very calm and loves to snuggle. A perfect dog.

Hello from Minnie!
We are so happy that she joined our family. The rescue was great to deal with. They are very thorough and make sure to match their pets with appropriate homes. We really appreciate all the work and time they put in.

Thank you to TXCR, the staff and volunteers for all that they do. The adoption process was straight forward and staff were great. In Nov. 2019 Findlay (formerly Carmine) became a Canadian and he hasn't looked back. Staff were bang on in their description of him (loves everything, animals, people, rocks, flowers..) and he adores his two older JRT brothers. Finn is a large part of their pack and has grown more confident in himself, although he now believes he is a JRT (ha ha), he is a loving, sweet happy boy. When looking to adopt I found a few rescues refused to allow a male dog to be adopted into a family where there was already a male dog saying they won't get along. Thank you to TXCR for believing in their adoption process and my dogs. I have recommended the rescue to several friends looking for that missing part of their family. I would definitely adopt from TXCR again.

We can't thank TXCR enough for all the hard work that they do - we are so pleased with our 1 year old Chiweenie named Beans, she is so good for our hearts!  The adoption process was professional and thorough- our adoption coordinator Roberta contacted our vet, references and completed a home inspection with professionalism and courtesy. She answered any questions we had and picking Beans up was smooth, organized and socially distanced.  We quickly found out that Beans lives up to her name because she's full of them, but no surprises in her temperament. The limited bio we got from TXCR remains true.  Thank you for your continuing hardwork, dedication and big hearts

Texas Chihuahua Rescue Canada is such a wonderful organization. I was very impressed on how professional Laura K (volunteer) and coordinators Laurie and Roberta are with potential adopters. I have never rescued a dog before and Roberta guided me through all the questions that I had. I felt completely supported throughout the entire process. I’ve been lucky to have adopted Crocket in January. Its apparent that he had the best care from Texas all the way to Ontario. This rescue has the best interest in all the dogs they come into contact with.

We have only had Violet (was known as Basil) for 6 weeks and she settled in so quickly with our family and 2 fur siblings. TXCR is a very well run rescue organization from the start of the adoption process right up until they hand over your precious bundle! Violet travelled all the way to Canada and it takes many selfless volunteers from start to finish to make this happen so flawlessly. Our veterinarian was impressed with her care and medical records. Her bio was pretty accurate, no surprises. We absolutely love Violet and can't imagine life without her. I have already recommended TXCR to family and friends.

I have nothing but great things to say about our experience with Texas Chihuahua Rescue! We felt very supported by our adoption coordinator, Roberta, from the very beginning of our adoption application right through to when we pick up our new furry family member, Iggy, and beyond. If you are looking to add a new addition to your family, I would highly recommend this organization. The people working here are truly committed to finding the very best homes for some very precious and deserving pups. We couldn't imagine life without our Iggy!❤

A very thorough adoption application process, and a very accurate description of my four-year-old Yorkshire Terrier mix, Gibson (formerly Nixon). I've had him less than a month, but he is now walking a straight line next to me on-leash, rather than cutting in front of me and being a tripping hazard. He's also making progress with not pulling when on-leash. He's still barking madly at other dogs, but I have discovered that it's because he wants to meet them; so we continue to work on his socialization and barking, with the help of some patient neighbour dogs and their hoomans.

Gibson is also very loving and playful, and wonderful in meeting new people - including children. He's obedient in coming when called, and is learning to sit fully rather than just curtsy. He's a delightful little fellow, and I'm enjoying his company immensely. Many thanks to the TXCR for bringing him into my life.

TXCR Canada was an absolute PLEASURE to adopt from. The volunteers are amazing and informed and are there to answer any questions you may have. My fur baby came with all necessary shots, procedures and paperwork to make the integration into my life even easier. They truly made sure that my match was perfect and my little pup fits so perfectly into my life and so much of that is because of TXCR. They made sure she was right for me and I was right for her and filled the hole in our house. I will never be able to express how much their work, staff and entire organization means to me. It's been a month since I picked up my girl and I can't wait for the years to come.

I will forever be grateful to TXCR for so many reasons. The first would be for saving our girl 'Ducky" whom we adopted in November of 2020. She was heartworm positive and TXCR put her through expensive treatment to get her well. She is an absolute joy and we treasure her every day.

The amount of dogs that TXCR has saved, and will continue to save is staggering. The dedication and compassion of everyone involved is what makes this world a better place.

I've been volunteering as an adoptions coordinator for several years now and it has been a rewarding experience. Its an honor to work with an awesome group on volunteers and to help this amazing rescue!

We are so happy that we found Texas Chihuahua Rescue Canada. We had such an incredible experience with our coordinator Sara. The interview process was relaxed and easy and once we had a Hold on our puppy Sara made sure that we knew what to expect with the transport and pickup process. Pickup day was run like a well oiled machine. We love Bentley (formerly Danni) so much. He is such a funny and sweet puppy. We couldn't imagine our lives without him.

Can’t say enough about how great they are. The process was easy. We got Penny in Feb 21 and my vet was most impressed on how healthy and happy he was.
The staff from administration to volunteers are well informed and friendly.
Would definitely adopt thru them again ❤️

Excellent organization. Excellent communications between all points of contact-Dog photo of availability with necessary basic information; gender, spayed/neutered, Shots Up2Date, weight, size and or mix types.
Ease of payment and confirmation. Accurate Canadian arrival dates. Accommodations for later date pick up. Arrival day, dates, times and locations are excellent. Pictures of selected dog are excellent. Pick up of dog is flawless and, gives the adopter a memento of their very special little doggie- Tag with rescue doggies name, paperwork with complete details regarding the dog, its microchip number etc.

A final photo of selected rescue doggie with forever owner.

We love our littles in Canada

Texas Chihuahua Rescue Canada is THE best place to adopt/save a life and make room for saving another little life.

I can’t recommend them enough. Even now, 3years after the fact.

I am so grateful for all that Texas Chihuahua Rescue does! The entire adoption process is so smooth and had great communication throughout all steps. Every person I encountered was so friendly and really supported me through my adoption. I know they are doing amazing work for all dogs and bringing them to the right forever homes.. all across North America. Even after adoption I still feel so supported by the Rescue and other adopters.
