Adoption Status:Available
Age:9 weeks old
Breed:Chihuahua mix
Weight:4 lbs.


Bella is definitely the “belle of the ball.”  She is smart, confident, and a little charmer.  Energetic, loves to chew or chase her toys, highly food/treats motivated.  She listens to you if you get her attention.  I, her foster mom, am working on her basic skills training from day-to-day.  So far she has learned to use pee pads and understands the words come and no.  Loves to play outside on the grass, with her younger sister from another mother.  Bella was surrendered to us from the Valley of Texas, and transported to Austin.  Apparently, she and her siblings were confined to a bedroom and never left it since birth.  She was apprehensive about grass and the big backyard at first, but now she and her “sister” run and chase each other round and round.

She loves to snuggle with you but is not necessarily a perfect lap dog.  She is independent and loves to explore.  I believe she is a pup that will want to walk with you around the neighborhood, as soon as you leash train her.  We think that she will not be more than 12 pounds as an adult.   She has had two vaccinations and awaiting a third.

Bella’s adoption fee of $350 includes vet exam, age appropriate vaccinations, fecal and fungal tests, dewormer, heartworm preventative, microchip, and a future spay.


If you live in the Austin, TX area and are interested in adopting, please fill out an application.

Please be aware that we rarely have information on our dogs being good with cats as most of our foster homes don’t have them.

Adoption decisions are based on the best overall match and not done on a first-come-first-serve basis.
