Chihuahua Mix - Terrier Mix - Baby - Female
Adoptable Small Dog FriendlyMicrochippedSpayed / NeuteredVaccinated

12 weeks old (as of 03/09/18)
5.1 pounds (as of 03/09/18)

Chula came into the rescue with her two sisters, Chachi and Charro, and brother, Papi, around 4 weeks old and all under 1 lb. Since then, they’ve been in extreme foster care and are thriving.
They had a Mom and another sibling who were unfortunate during the cold spell and both passed over the rainbow bridge.

Chula likes a lap sometimes, but more so loves her bed. She likes human affection and will give kisses on occasion. She’s very smart and listens to basic commands such as in the bed, drop it, and don’t bite.

She does have a bit of an alpha streak, so she needs consistency in her life. She loves to play with her siblings and several other foster dogs. She is also somewhat happy to be on her own with a toy. She loves toys!!!! The more the better, and she will wear herself out playing with them. She will eagerly go to any person, male or female.

She has been pen-trained with reusable puppy pads, so will need to be house trained by whomever adopts her. Crate training would be best.

We do not know about cats or children, but due to her small size, no children under 7 years of age.

She travels crated very well, but has never been harnessed or leashed so that will need to be started as well.

We are seeking a stay at home, work from home, or retired family as she is still very young and requires constant attention and supervision to continue to thrive and reach her full potential.

Austin area adoptions only.

To apply for adoption, please fill out our form. Contact for additional questions.

Chula’s adoption fee of $TBD includes her Vet exam, age appropriate vaccinations, worming, flea treatment, monthly heart worm prevention, spay, and microchip.

Please note that we will not adopt puppies under 6 months of age to apartments or homes without a safely fenced private yard due to their incomplete immunization. We require that they go to a home where someone will be home much of the time for training and with no children under 5 years of age due to a puppy’s sharp teeth. Also, no homes with pools unless they are securely fenced.

Please be aware that we rarely have information about cat compatibility, as most of our foster homes don’t have cats. Adoption decisions are based on the best overall match and not done on a first-come-first-serve basis.
