Mercury is an adorable 7-month-old Chihuahua blend who weighs approximately 12 pounds. Prior to arriving to our rescue, Mercury had a horrendous life. He was forced as a puppy to survive on the streets in a South Texas town. He often struggled to find food and clean water and was attacked by larger dogs. He eventually was impounded by one of the worse shelters in the country but we transferred him to our rescue because we knew he deserved a second chance. Mercury is quickly responding to attention and affection. He would do well in an only-dog home. Once he bonds with you, he will make a loyal companion.
Please understand you are committing to providing a good home for his entire life (up to 15+ years or more) - not just until his puppy cuteness wears off.
You must be committed to housebreaking, age-appropriate enrichment and exercise, leash training, grooming needs, and positive socialization. Like most puppies, he may chew on anything within his reach to include but not limited to baseboards, shoes, socks, childrens toys, electrical cords, plants, etc.
His adoption fee is $250. This includes his neuter surgery, rabies vaccination, Nobivac Canine 1-DAPP vaccinations, Bravecto, Drontal Plus, Tri-Heart Plus Chewable Tablet, 24PetWatch microchip, and leash and collar.
Please be aware that puppies and small breed dogs do get adopted quickly so interested parties are encouraged to apply online at www.saspca.org.
Please ensure your application is complete before submitting. We do verify property ownership, landlord references, apartment/HOA restrictions, veterinary references, and criminal histories.
Our adoption events are held each Saturday at Petco located in the Northwoods Shopping Center at 18138 San Pedro Ave, San Antonio TX 78232. Event hours are 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Additional questions may be directed to sagdinfo@gmail.com.

Our group focuses on assisting open admission shelters in South Texas where over 32,000 dogs and cats are euthanized each year.

Our puppies and dogs are completely vetted and live in foster homes. They are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, dewormed, and tested for heartworm disease.

All adoptions include one month of flea and heartworm preventative and a leash and collar.

Our adoption events are held each Saturday at Petco located in the Northwoods Shopping Center at 18138 San Pedro Ave, San Antonio, TX 78232. Event hours are typically 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m (summer hours). We have went to an every other Saturday schedule until fall and it cools off - please check either the SA Great Dane or Homeward Bound Face book page to see which Saturdays we will be out.

We also host additional adoption events throughout the year. Please visit our Facebook pages for the most current event schedules.

If your adoption application is approved and you are traveling from out-of-town, we hold your chosen pet for one hour past the event start time to allow for travel time.

We are an all-volunteer organization and do not currently have the resources to process out-of-state adoptions.

Our puppies, purebred dogs, and small breed dogs do get adopted quickly so we encourage interested parties to apply online.

AAHA is not affiliated or involved with any specific microchip registry and has no relationship, financial or otherwise, with this Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry ("Registry"). This Registry has given AAHA permission to search the Registry's database in order to assist pet owners in being reunited with their pets. AAHA does not maintain a database of microchips of its own. It only links to registries such as this one. The AAHA Universal Microchip Lookup Tool only searches the databases of companies that elect to participate in the program.
