Sweet Lilah is a big cuddler despite being abandoned by people she thought she could count on. Now, she's thriving in a wonderful foster home. She can be on the shy side when it comes to new people but has a lot of puppy energy. She likes chew toys, tennis balls, dog parks and long walks.

Diego, chihuahua

Diego is a sweet male chihuahua dog currently residing at The TRAPRS - Trapping, Rescue, and Pet Recovery Service.

Diego likes to socialize, and he gets along well with other dogs. His vaccinations are up to date, and he's neutered. No need to worry: He's already house-trained and crate-trained.

From Diego's current caretaker:

Diego and his sister, Frida, were dumped in a southeast Austin neighborhood. He's currently living with his foster mom and follows her around like a shadow. Because he gets easily attached, he may have a hard time leaving her. But with the right amount of patience and love, you can give Diego the home he deserves.
