Review for Texas Chihuahua Rescue, Inc, San Antonio, TX, USA
The Texas Chihuahua Rescue is a fantastic organisation that more people in Canada should know about. If you want to adopt a Chihuahua-size dog here in Montreal, you will be hard pressed to find one. The adoption network has very few small dogs. Many of my neighbours have gone to breeders, who must churn out more puppies to meet the demand. Meanwhile Chihuahuas are among the top two most euthanized breeds in the southern United States.
Congratulations to the Texas Chihuahua Rescue for their work sending hundreds of little dogs up to Hamilton and Toronto, Ontario.
Since I had some rather narrow criteria for the dog I wanted, I wanted to travel to San Antonio to “interview” a few of them before choosing my match. I was looking for an affectionate and outgoing dog, and since would travel and go everywhere with me, s/he had to be portable: 6 lbs or under, adaptable, and enjoy being in public.
The friendly, dynamic and competent women of Texas Chihuahua Rescue inquired and understood my needs perfectly. They welcomed my friend and me down to meet their Chichis and spend time getting to know them individually. We were treated to outstanding Texan hospitality, and everything went swimmingly, from the initial welcome to the final trip to the vet and then customs upon our return. They even gave us a carrier and my dog’s next heart-worm pill!
I chose Emma (aka Mouse) and, after doing some sight-seeing in San Antonio together, brought her back to her new home in Montreal. She is a hit: sassy and playful at the dog park, and a charmer with the neighbours and storekeepers.
Thank you, Texas Chihuahua Rescue, for making us both so happy!
