I was beyond impressed with Texas Chihuahua Rescue. They have an organized and efficient adoption process. My adoption specialist was very helpful and always responded quickly. It’s been almost a week with Bell and I couldn’t be happier with her. As a puppy I can’t believe how well-behaved she is! I thank TXCR for everything and highly recommend them to anyone looking for a new family member.

We adopted our little guy on November 14 and could not be happier! Archie is adjusting well in his new home, He loves his bed and his toys and he is doing very well with his potty manners and sleeps through the night in his bed in our room. He follows me everywhere and when I leave the room he looks for me. He is the sweetest and so loving with his cuddles and kisses and spoiled rotten! The entire process from beginning to end was exceptionally smooth and very organized. I would highly recommend this rescue to everyone. Thank-you Diane for all your help.

We adopted our little princess about a week ago and could not be happier! I had very little experience with Dog ownership and Princess Sofia Buttonnose the 1st could not be a better “first dog” to have. She is the absolute sweetest! And happily spoiled rotten! The entire process was exceptionally smooth and organized. I would highly recommend this rescue to everyone

Our family had been searching for a small, low shedding, rescue dog since March. Then we get preapproved by TXCR. Our coordinator Sasha was great!! We patiently waited for the right dog for our family to be posted. That day finally came when there was a dog by the name of Twain posted. I messaged Sasha! Few minutes later there was another one, Twila posted. I messaged Sasha again! A few hours later I received an email stating I had the first hold on Twila and if we would like to go ahead with the adoption. Ofcourse we would like to go ahead with the adoption!!! I cried after I sent the reply to the email. I probably filled out a hundred applications for dogs and that moment had finally come. My 10yr old son was the only one home with me at the time. We decided we were going to tell my husband and daughter together. When we told her she dropped to the floor crying, she said "these are happy tears mommy". LuLu (Twila) has come a long way. We work with her everyday. First few days she was this scared, always shaking little dog and then day 3 came and wow what a transformation! We went from small walks in the backyard, to around the block to now to a big open field by a park where she loves to run with my kids and chase squirrels and bunnies and its only been 2 weeks. She sleeps through the night, has not had one accident in the house and we are yet to hear a bark. We heard a little something from her when a big dog walked by and barked at her we were starting to think she had no voice. We are still working on the chasing of the neighborhood squirrels and bunnies We couldn't have asked for a better matched dog. We love her so much and are looking forward to many happy years with her. Thank you TXCR! You guys are great for making so many families and dogs happy.

Our family had the pleasure of adopting a male chi mix we call Mr. Arthur Boo Ridley. We call him Boo. Knowing we got Boo from a reputable and caring organization was very important. From the beginning, reading his bio on the site, to filling out the application, speaking with the coordinator and than finding out he was our match was well coordinated and caring. The team of volunteers on pick date, were friendly, passionate and patient. This truly has been a wonderful experience.

I adopted a lovely little girl through this rescue and I couldn't be happier. The volunteers are excellent and fast to respond to any questions and it feels great to be able to be able to do my small part in helping a homeless pet get a new home. The little girl I adopted (Birdie), though still a little shy, has really come out of her shell. She is an absolute character and the sweetest dog. I'm so glad to have her in my life!

In October of 2019 we decided that it was time to welcome a new puppy to our home. We reached out to Texas Chihuahua Rescue and soon became preapproved for adoption. We have now two TXCR pups in our home and couldn't be happier. They have been an organization that have quick response, kind volunteers and a heart of gold. We love our pups and highly recommend this rescue to all!

I adopted Red, now Rudy Redman. 6yrs old.
I also have a Chi/ Terrier mix , who is about 2 year and a half from another rescue.
So Rudy has a sister. The first few days he was so tired and scared, but sweet , they didn’t interact much except some sniffs and waggs.
Right after the lovely volunteer handed me Rudy, off we went to a safe patch of grass and he and Chica met. Then he peed for 2 minutes and pooped like he had not in days. Some dogs when scared and have been travelling and may have had surgery days prior, may not poop or pee due to feeling off and scared.
So anyway, off to Toronto, where he has settled in.
It has taken a week to get him kind of regular, He would poop and then none for a couple days, he had a couple accidents...which I said not a peep. Poor little guy, so confused., Also note I rolled up my carpets etc , puppy prepped ,after a week of regular meals .. I am ecstatic to report he peed and pooped outside this morning
He needs to gain about 5 pounds or more, going to cook him some yummy mince and sweet potato, egg white, finely chopped red lettuce or kale, maybe add some pasta one day, rice another or even oatmeal. Here they are. It is a wonderful experience they need to settle and feel secure and I wanted to share that in my story.. rescue is the best and this organization is amazing

Penny (TXCR Rosie) was our 3rd adoption from this great rescue. Just as before we were given full disclosure on the right we were getting. This is so important especially with a dog like Penny who is very nervous and needs an experienced owner. The love and care she received in Texas is obvious. She maybe nervous but very strong physically and most of all healthy. The photos/videos in Texas and on the transport to Canada mean so much to the adopters. It’s these little things along with all of the big things that would make me recommend this rescue to anyone looking to adopt a Chihuahua or any of the assorted small/medium dogs they rescue.

Thank you Texas Chihuahua Rescue Canada for another great family member.

I adopted my baby girl Bailey through TXCR-Canada. I had been delaing with various local rescues when I came across TXCR in a dog rescue site on Facebook. After reaching out about a specific dog, I was advised of their pre-approval process before being able to apply to adopt a dog/ puppy. The communication was very clear and a specific volunteer and coordinator was assigned to me. This level of organization and communication went above and beyond any other rescue I had dealt with (most with no reply or acknowledgement at all). While I understand that rescues are volunteer based and time is limited, the process TXCR has in place makes the whole experience clear and helps to manage expectations for people like me that are new to this. All of the people I dealt with from this organization were amazing, kind, helpful, and above all, communicative. Thank you for existing and doing all that you do for the dogs and their people!

We lost our beloved companion, Bear, 3 years ago. He was a rescue who endured a hard beginning. So once we were ready, we wanted to adopt- in his memory.
I had been researching every rescue that I could find, that’s when we found TXCR! And I’m oh so glad we did. Our whole experience was positive and supportive.
There were so many applicants flooding in, with every dog that was posted. Even though there were a few failed attempts at trying to get other dogs, our coordinator kept our spirits up and never missed a beat responding to my many questions over the months.
Then along came Gigi. She immediately had my heart when I read her story, reminded me of my boy Bear. And then I saw her picture, I somehow knew she would be mine. And I was right. She is my perfect match and I’m so committed to her and her well being.
THANK YOU TO ALL AT TXCR!!!

It was a journey from adoption pre-approval to finally meeting your fur family. The rescue team is composed of highly trained and professional employees & volunteers. It's my first time to adopt and my coordinator was so quick to reserve the pup for me .The pup I got is already potty, leash & crate trained. She also already knows some commands. Thank you to the foster parent. The pup is sweet & gentle. am so lucky! I will adopt again next year from this organization.

What can we say! Izzy (Tilly) fit in from day one. She became immediate best friends with the household kitty Blanche. They chase each other then catch their breath together on the cool grass. Izzy is a cuddler. Kisses are a given freely (on both sides) human and pup. Walking on a leash is a little strange for her but meeting new friends on walks is awesome.

Thank you to the team at Texas Chihuahua Rescue in Texas and Canada. From the rescuers to drivers to coordinators and fosters simply a first class organization.

Me and my wife could not be more satisfied with our experience adopting with Texas Chihuahua Rescue. You can see right from the beginning their care about the dogs they rescue. Our adoption coordinator Roberta helped us every step of the way. The transport of the dogs from Texas to Canada was made with respect and care for the dog's wellbeing, they also shared with us how the trip was going. Their level of dedication and professionalism is exceptional. We would definitely adopt with them in the future. Thank you so much for bringing Chilli (Duncan) to our arms.

We have just welcomed to Canada, the beautiful Miss Luna into our life’s. We cannot express enough how much we love her. She is our second rescue from Texas Chihuahua. If you’re thinking about adoption..please look no further. Texas Chihuahua is one of the most kind, most professional rescue organization In North America. Their work is tireless. Before you adopt your new family member..TXCR rescue makes sure your dog is completely vetted and healthy. The staff of volunteers goes above and beyond to make sure all the dogs are super comfortable and as happy as possible on their journey to their forever homes. Every animal deserves a good home..so please have a look at their website..I know YOUR special fur baby is just waiting for you.

Our 14.5 year old chihuahua, Taz passed away at the end of February, 2020 and I didn't think my heart would ever heal.... But here we are now - the proud new parents of 2 sweet little girls, Geri and Ellie They have been with us for 8 days now and are settling in so well. They both have such unique personalities. We are so happy with them and look forward to many more years with them.

TXCR (and our awesome adoption worker, Roberta) is a fantastic organization and so wonderful to work with... and I highly recommend them. They care so much about each dog and carefully place them into the right homes. Thank you for bringing them home to us.

Our little poodle mix died suddenly and it wasn't long before we realized that we needed another small dog. My sister adopted a chihuahua from Texas Chihuahua rescue last year and told me to apply. We did and we adopted our chihuahua mix only 7 days ago. She is exactly as described and so much more! She smothers us with kisses and runs around the house like a crazy dog whenever we come home. Five minutes or 1 hour gets the same reaction. She is so affectionate and loving and she is possibly the best dog ever! Without Texas chihuahua rescue, our newly adopted dog might never have had a chance at a home. They are simply the BEST!!!!! I can't think of anything better than to help dogs find forever homes.

TXCR is a 5 star organization, rescuing all these dogs & helping little dogs live big dreams! What an amazing experience. I applied to adopt, was approved & 3 days later I had officially adopted my little Freddie. The hardest part was waiting the month for him to arrive in St Catherines, ON. TXCR Transport provides photos & videos of the journey from Texas to their destination, so you can follow along & see your furbaby as he travels closer to being yours. So exciting! This rescue was twofold, I saved Freddie & he saved me!

Our 14 year old Chihuahua passed away several months ago and once we had recovered somewhat, began looking to adopt another Chihuahua. I had donated his sweaters to Texas Chihuahua Rescue so they were on my radar already. We submitted an application and were approved shortly thereafter with a very nice note from Tamie telling us to check their Facebook page and advise when we saw a Chi we wanted to meet. A week or so later we saw Benson (formerly Denver) who had been through heartworm treatment and was now available for adoption. I wrote Tamie not really expecting that we would be selected, as he was utterly adorable and there was a big response to the FB post. She replied the next day that she was holding him for us and to let her know when we wanted to meet him. To make a long story short, we met him and immediately adopted him. The entire process was thorough and Tamie made it easy, informing us of everything we needed to know about him. He is a wonderful little dog and we can’t thank them enough for saving him and so many others. This is a first class organization that really cares about the dogs.

I have worked with a few rescues to procure dogs in my past and this one outshined all of the rest. The care that they give to their dogs is unmatched, and the preparation and follow up that they give to the adopters goes above and beyond. I now have a beautiful chihuahua mix from Texas, whom Texas Chihuahua Rescue held for me in their loving care in Texas for 2.5 months as the pandemic occurred right after adoption. I cannot recommend this agency enough.

We can't say enough about TXCR! They are a wonderful, caring, amazing group of volunteers that truly has a love for animals. We adopted our girl the middle of March and through the pandemic had to wait a few months to get her. She was in wonderful hands and very loved and well taken care of with her foster home. When we finally got the news she was coming home to us I was so happy to finally meet her. They updated the trip with photos and when we got to pick her up I was crying. I am so moved by people that care and love for animals to this degree. The care and cleanliness of the vehicle and the volunteers we met when we picked her up were just wonderful. Thank you so much for what you do and for our beautiful Poppy!

We already had a Springer Spaniel that had taken to my son, so my daughter wanted a little dog to call her own. I came across Texas Chihuahua Rescue after a friend had suggested that I look into adoption rather than buying a puppy. I kept my eye on the available adoptees until I found Bill - he seemed like a perfect fit for our family.
We applied and our Adoption Coordinator moved things along quite quickly. I was surprised how fast we went from applicants to chihuahua owners. The people at TXCR work hard to make sure these little guys end up in great homes!
It took a little while for Bill to adjust, but the support from TXCR has been fantastic. They are there to help you every step of the way.
After some time in his new home, Bill has adapted quite nicely. He and his new sister share toys, beds, and even the food dish. And we couldn't have asked for a more snuggly, loving little dog. He's no longer just my daughter's dog - he's captured the hearts of each one of us. Thanks so much TXCR!

Our family was finally home enough to adopt a dog - something we had been wanting to do for a long time! We were thrilled with the quick and amazing response from Texas Chihuahua Rescue and were soon paired with a puppy! We were all so excited and woke up early on that cold morning to go get our "Tex". Tex has fit right into our family and we can't imagine what we ever did without him!

We picked up Prof. Frogmore (formerly Timone) almost a week ago and I was thoroughly impressed with TXCR. From putting my application to the final process of selecting my forever fur baby. Sasha, my coordinator and Jeanine who did the virtual home visit was kind and helpful. Whenever I reached out with a question. Sasha would answer patiently and give me suggestions. Even after picking up my pet, I did not feel abandon. Today is the 5th day and I can say I feel the Prof. has settle fully and is happy. I have dealt with other rescue organizations who did not give me the same amount of help and answers. If and when I am ready, I would definitely go back to TXCR.

We adopted Paisley Mae (formerly Blythe) almost two weeks ago and our family is so happy with this little girl ! TXCR was wonderful throughout the adoption process, and the foster parents who were taking care of her after her arrival in Canada on February 1st were just so helpful and lovely. Our brave little Paisley Mae is adapting well to the Canadian winter, snuggled in the adorable sweater she arrived with. Thank you to TXCR for taking in this little angel and helping us find her - she has settled in as if she's always been with us and I think that has a lot to do with the care you gave her back in Texas and the love she received in her foster home here in Canada.

This organization is very conscientious and thorough in its follow up on veterinary disclosure and references when one applies for a foster and adoption pet. The people I had contact with were professional, friendly and helpful. As well, they are social and kind to the dogs they are the guardians of. A dog off the street anywhere is a positive thing I was told and I agree. This is also a much needed organization in Toronto (Ontario) where the local (large) Humane Society only very rarely has smaller dogs. For me there is a social justice as well as animal justice in how Texas Chihuahua operates in Canada. Dogs are within range for most responsible caring folk. I'm grateful to them.

We adopted Yucca now know as Miss Beasley. There is something about a special needs dog. You have to understand, we know that it can be very time consuming in providing the care our beloved special needs dog needs but it is a labour of love.... and to receive the unconditional love, the appreciate smiles and kisses is enough reward for the small price we have to pay to have been blessed with having this angel in our lives. We believe that with love and faith all things are possible and we have been blessed with a dog that proves it to us everyday. Thank you TXCR for allowing Miss Beasley to be part of our family.

We adopted Josie now called Addie Mae. She is a little pistol!! We love her personality and she eats all the time!! It’s funny because she will eat her food then she will bark at our toy poodle so he will move so she can eat his food! He just looks at her and keeps eating. It is funny to watch her. She likes all the toys to be in her bed. If our other dog is playing with a toy she runs over and tries to get it so she can take it back to her bed. We love having a baby in our house again.

We recently adopted our second pup from Texas Chihuahua Rescue. I cannot say enough good things about this rescue organization. Both times we dealt with amazing people who truly care about the pups they are trying to find homes for. We live in Ontario, Canada. The first time we had to go to Buffalo, NY to pick up our pup. The second time we went to Hamilton, ON as our new pup was over 8 months. Great experiences both times and we have truly found the two best, most amazing dogs ❤.

I cannot say enough good things about this Rescue organization. I am the proud adopted mom to my new furbaby, Gwen. From the beginning of the adoption process, reference checks, virtual home visit, contact with our adoption coordinator to the day Gwen became a Canadian, everything was so well coordinated and thought out. The adoption cost is beyond reasonable for a puppy who comes with all her shots, spayed, microchipped and with a clean bill of health. If you are thinking of a puppy, please consider rescuing. It will be the best thing that you ever did.

My experience with TXCR was amazing!! I had just lost my little doxie in July and in 2017 lost one of my beautiful Goldens. I saw a picture of little Gia on their website and I knew I had to adopt her. She is so sweet and such a wonderful addition to our little family, my 11 year old Golden and me. I can't say enough about this group. I filled out an application for adoption and after my reference and vet check were done, was quickly approved for adoption and within a little over a week I was able to pick up my sweet puppy. All the volunteers who work with this group are wonderful to work with, they want to find loving, furever homes for all these dogs. The transport team, as well, did a wonderful job bringing these babies from San Antonio to Buffalo, safe and well cared for! Such a great experience! I would definitely adopt from TXCR again and highly recommend this group!!

Thanks to Texas Chihuahua Rescue I have found the perfect addition to my family. The whole team that is apart of this organization is amazing. They are all so happy, passionate, and informative. You can tell they all care about what they do!

Because of Texas Chihuahua Rescue, I was able to find Nico (aka Rusty). He was brought right to my home city, and came vaccinated, neutered, and even microchipped! I was also provided with his health and vet records.

When transport day came, they had posted every stop, and updated every day on their journey. It was very comforting seeing my little man, and I’m sure lots of other fur mama’s and papa’s felt the same!

Throughout the whole process I was updated with so much information. Information that included, where to pick him up, what I should bring with me, what I should have for him at home. They also gave me some tips on keeping him healthy! I already had another dog at home who is 7 years old, and had learnt so much more about taking care of our beloved fur babies!

Thank you so much Texas Chihuahua Rescue! I will definitely be passing along the amazing experience I had with you!

A huge shout out to Roberta. She is such an amazing woman! Gave me such an amazing experience and provided me with so much information!

We recently lost a fur baby and our other one was diagnosed with renal failure... so our lives have been a bit heartbreaking when it comes to pets. I found a dog we were interested in and started the adoption process, but couldn’t bring myself to go through with the original adoption. Sara recommend I finish the application anyway just in case, but was extremely understanding about how we were feeling about bringing home another dog. We just didn’t feel ready yet. We competed the application with Diane over FaceTime, and dealing with her and Sara was incredible. You can tell they really love animals, especially the dogs they are trying to find homes for! They make absolute sure that they are going somewhere safe and where they will be loved. As we were approved by Dianne she said we should go to the adoption event that Saturday and see if any pup would be a good fit for us, she even went over some of the ones she knew that would enjoy a home with kids and other pets. We went on the Facebook page and fell in love with all of them- I’m pretty certain we would have brought them all home if we could! Watching the dogs travel up North was so cute, but from the photos and videos posted a special pup stood out to me-Peggy (now known as Gabi). When she walked into the room on Saturday morning I teared
up because I knew she was meant to be with our family. They pulled our number second and when we met Gabi it was love at first scratch She came home with us that day, and while it’s only been a few days since then, it feels like she has been with us forever. Her foster parents took great care of her and helped her become an amazing little girl. We feel so lucky and honored that we could join the Texas Chihuahua Rescue Adoption family... and will definitely be back to find another fur baby to help!

Every minute of our experience with this rescue has been excellent. We got lots of communication about Judy, knew lots about her in advance, and were even put in contact with her foster to get more info. Everyone was amazing to deal with and we love Judy SO MUCH and are so happy to have her.

After having a previous coworker adopt two dogs from TXCR, I had been following the group on Facebook for quite a while. I went ahead and applied for an adoption. The application was very simple. I quickly received a response letting me know my application was received and one of the volunteers would be in contact. Later that evening, I had received another email informing me to let my vet know that the group could have access to my vet info once they were able to call. Within 24 hours of my application, I had passed half of it and was asked to complete a quick home tour over a video call. It was scheduled and very quick. Diane is amazing at organizing and getting everyone in touch and coordinated. After choosing the doggo I thought was my best fit, payment and holds were done, I was put in touch with the foster mom here in Canada and pickup was arranged.
The whole process took less than a week for me.
Foster mom Brenda was so sweet on pickup and very informative of my new pup and her personality.
It’s been 3 days in her new home.
I couldn’t have asked for a better fitting dog. She’s so relaxed and content. Happy to be around her people.
I know I made the right choice and I look forward to hopefully adopting another doggo from TXCR in the future!

We adopted baby Megan and we can’t praise enough the foster parents and Texas Chihuahua Rescue for the job they are doing. God bless everyone!! I am sure we’ll be back to visit at the events with our baby. As you can see she is a star and walked the red carpet at TIFF two days after she was adopted.

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 had a wonderful experience with a Texas Chihuahua Rescue! The volunteer we dealt with was amazing, so friendly and helpful!
We are from London and the process all happened through emails and FaceTime. Once we were approved, we went to Kitchener to an adoption event the next day and brought home our baby!
We have no reservations about recommending Texas Chihuahua Rescue to anyone looking for a new little family member!

My family welcomed Alabama/BAMA (formerly Acura) into our family a few weeks ago. She is the addition and we couldn't be happier. The Texas Chihuahua Rescue group were wonderful to work with. They responded to all of my questions promptly and you can tell just how much they care about the pups! Thank you for everything!

My name is Gloria, Mum to Josane Blackmore who has been fostering for Texas Chihuahua rescue. While I was visiting her she had just recieved Cookie who has now been renamed Gypsy. I had been interested in getting a small dog. So I look at it as I was at the right place at the right time and decided to adopt Gypsy. She has settled in nicely and is enjoying the good life. She loves kids and other dogs which is awesome since I have another dog and 7 cats, 5 which are rescues. She is very sweet and we have been loving having her join our family! Here are a few pictures of her as we take her with us on our adventures which she is totally enjoying!

Thank you so much to this amazing organization. We adopted our little girl at Pawlooza in London. So many furbabies saved and given a chance at a better life. The volunteers are amazing and so passionate about the rescue. Just an amazing organization to work with. Highly recommended rescuing your next furbaby from them.
