Chihuahua rescue in Phoenix

A cousin rescued CoCo in New Mexico. CoCo is a +8 Chihuahua mix according the vet. She has a very bad right rear leg, bad teeth and is very submissive. She is also very finicky about food. The Royal Canin Adult Chihuahua is one of the few dry foods she will eat. We tried ALOT before we found Royal Canin. Thanks.

He won't eat anything else!

I rescued my chihuahua when he was 4 months old and the shelter was feeding him Royal Canin. I've stuck with it throughout the years and now that he is 9yrs old thats all he wants to eat! Great price and great quality of food.

Packed with Nutrition

My youngest Chihuahua was introduced to royal canin chihuahua adult dry dog food as he was being weaned from puppy dood to adult food. I've never sewn anything like it before! We mixed the two foods together to gradually change over his food from one to the other, but the first feeding of mixed foods brought something we never expected... Bandit had never been fed royal canin before that day. We watched after we set down the bowl. Bandit smelled the food and proceeded to use his nose to push his pyppy food out of e bowl onto the floor, one piece at a time, until the only food in the bowl was royal canin chihuahua adult dry dog food! After picking out all of the old food, Bandit ate only the Royal Canin Chihuahua adult dry dog food that remained in his bowl! We had to add more food to replace what he had picked out of his bowl, of course. Bandit won't eat anything else ever since! Bandit is a very smart Chihuahua, and it's quite obvious he knows what the good stuff is! Thank you Royal Canin!
