Chihuahua Mix    Age: Puppy

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Aggressive, Fearful/Anxious 

    Jaxx is a very loving dog if in a female ONLY home. He prefers not to be around makes but can tolerate them. Gets along with teenagers and cats. Can be aggressive when he has his toys or bones. Does not like strangers and will nip at their clothes. I've tried a few trainers and no luck. I do not think he needs to be put down just needs the right home. He's perfect with me but dislikes my boyfriend. He will bark n try to chase people and other dogs while being walked. I need help rehoming him. Up to date on shots, neutered, microchipped. He does well with our cat.

Rescue Me ID: 17-06-26-00069Sammy (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Our handsome boy, Sammy, needs a big-hearted adopter to care for his little heart. Our Vet noted a significant heart murmur in Sammy which prompted a complete cardiac workup. The upshot is that he has a heart flutter that is treated with minimal medication each month. Sammy's prognosis is great. Just four years old, he is in good shape and has overcome the malnutrition that plagued him when he arrived. He has had extensive blood work done, which will provide adopter with good baseline values. All the diagnostics are done, and the regimen is simple. He takes his medication easily. Sammy is an debonair fellow who would charm any adopter. He ... (Read More)recently joined us from an overcrowded Animal Control facility where he spent some time after he was found as a stray in a sketchy city neighborhood. Sammy was in rough shape when he was found, and it appeared that he had been on the move for some time. All efforts were made to find his owner, but nobody came to claim him. Although Sammy received excellent behavior evaluations, he seemed to show signs of depression as he adjusted to shelter life. He was overwhelmed and overshadowed in the Shelter adoption program. In a short time, he caught the shelter kennel cough and was relegated to the euthanasia list. We are happy that our shelter contacts rerouted him to our Rescue. Sammy is a striking, red Miniature Pinscher, who may have a skosh of Chihuahua in him. He has a proud stance and carriage that screams 'King of the Toys,' and yet has delicate features, and weighs only 7 pounds. His short flat coat is reddish brown, with tan and white markings. We think that Sammy would most enjoy a quiet lifestyle with an adult single or couple, who love lap dog companionship. Sammy tends to steer clear of chaos, and would not be a good fit for a busy family bursting with kids. He is a moderate to low energy dog and likes to relax by the fire or nap and his person's lap during TV or Book time. He's relatively quiet for a Min Pin, and would be the perfect apartment dog. Sammy could easily join a multi-dog home with one or two other laid back dogs or cats, but would be overwhelmed by large, high energy dogs. He has a calm, gentle vibe, and could be a comforting companion to a senior dog who recently lost a beloved house mate. Sammy has good house manners, and is house trained, crate trained and can easily be persuaded to use a wee wee pad in inclement weather. Adopters should expect to troubleshoot the occasional accident that will inevitably occur during his transition to a new home. Sammy is in general good health, and his heart issue is diagnosed and treated. Adopters must pay attention to his nutrition and keep him at a lean body weight to ensure longevity. He is recently neutered, and has had extensive bloodwork done. He has been vaccinated for Rabies, DHLPPC (distemper, hepatitis, leptospirosis, parvo, parainfluenza and coronavirus), He has been boostered as needed. He has had the 4dx test: negative for heartworm, lyme, earlichia and anaplasmosis. He has been dewormed, and microchipped. He has been on appropriate heartworm and flea/tick preventatives. If you are interested in Sammy, please write to Denise@eskiesonline.com or call/text Denise at 860-908-9738 for more info.

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Venus came to us very skinny and covered in fleas and ticks. The family she lived with loved her but had no idea how to take care of a dog and didn't have the funds to do so either. She is very sweet and loves everyone but occasionally growls at small children. She had small children in her home before and we think they may have been too rough. She has never bitten so we think she is just trying to tell the kids not to hurt her. She loves them and tries to stay with them like a mommy. She is fully vetted and heartworm negative. She is very bonded to people and just wants to be a snuggle buddy companion to someone. Her adoption fee (adoption ... (Read More)fee, transport fee, and health cert fee are included) is $350. She is Texas NOT in CT due to the lack of fosters in the area. If you would consider adopting this dog from Transport then please email us. Thank you for choosing to adopt a rescue dog!! We transport dogs to the New England area every two weeks. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-05-30-00113Lucky (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Our Lucky wasn't so lucky the day he wound up at NYC ACC. He had been given to his owner as a pee wee puppy gift four years earlier, but, sadly, his Owner's personal problems imploded, and Lucky lost his cushy home. Owner surrendered dogs have the toughest time of all adapting to chaotic kill shelter life. The frenzied energy that permeates such a hostile environment often instills fear and anxiety. After living a quiet life with adult owners, Lucky did not make the transition to shelter chaos very easily. He is a reserved and shy boy, who had a bit of a breakdown during his intake process. His behavior was extremely fearful, and excluded ... (Read More)him from the adoption program. We offered to take him into our Rescue, and let him decompress a little bit before we came to any behavior conclusions. Lucky is a tiny boy, eighing just 8 pounds. He appears to be largely Chihuahua, with an unusual saddleback coat pattern and brindle markings. He has a triangular, rather than apple-shaped head, with a broad skull and narrow, elongated muzzle. Despite his small size, Lucky has a thick, muscular build. We wouldn't be surprised if there was a little bit of a stocky breed like Brindle Boston Terrier or French Bulldog somewhere in his DNA. Lucky has adapted to foster care extremely well. Our initial goal was to build his resilience and confidence, so that he can move from situation to situation without fear. He's come along beautifully, although folks will have to go slow with him in the beginning, and let him warm up on his own timeline. Once Lucky relaxes, he is an absolute love and craves human attention. Lucky would be the ideal addition to an active single or adult home, with adopters who have some experience with shy rescue dogs. He may not give a Disney moment at the adoption meeting, but patient adopters will find Lucky to be absolutely magical in charm and character once he warms up. Adopters will need to be comfortable instructing family and friends to allow Lucky to approach on his own terms. Lucky is not high energy, and a couple of walks a day should be adequate for his exercise needs. He travels well and would love to tag along on adventures with his family. The more action and outings that Lucky gets the better. We don't think he'd be a good choice for families with small children, but he does get along well with other dogs and possibly cats. Lucky has not had much obedience training, so we are working on his basic commands, and he seems intrigued with the learning process. He responds to positive reinforcement and leadership training techniques. Adopters will find that ongoing obedience work is extremely helpful in building a shy dog's confidence, and establishing the necessary leadership, so that the dog feels safe in various circumstances. Lucky has good house manners, and is house trained and crate trained. Adopters should expect to troubleshoot the occasional accident that will inevitably occur during his transition to a new home. He has been neutered, and has been vaccinated for Rabies, DHLPPC (distemper, hepatitus, leptospirosis, parvo, parainfluenza, coronavirus), and Canine Flu. He has been boostered as needed. He has had the 4dx test: negative for heartworm, lyme, earlichia and anaplasmosis. He has been dewormed, microchipped and is on preventatives for Heartworm and Flea/Tick. If you are interested in Lucky, please write to Denise@eskiesonline.com or call Denise at 860-908-9738 for more info.

Rescue Me ID: 17-05-29-00164Jumper (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hello, my name is Jump (or Jumper). I've recently lost my mom who I'm sure has found rest in heaven. I miss snuggling with her so I'm hoping you might be interested in providing a warm lap that I can sleep on which is one of my favorite pastimes! I'm hardly ferocious, but will let you know when you have a visitor and when they come in the house I'm happy to lick them and make friends. I'm staying at my brother's (mom's biological son). He and his family are great, but their dog isn't used to having another around. I'm a loyal Chihuahua type that loves to go on short walks. I'm alert and devoted and just know I would make a good companion for ... (Read More)you. I'm very comfortable around children and adults alike. They tell me I'm between 8 and 10 years old but age is only a number as you'll see..... I have the ability to jump 36 inches straight in the air (like a pogo stick), which is pretty good since I'm only 9 inches tall! Jump has a clean bill of health and all his vet records come with him.

Rescue Me ID: 17-04-21-00003Duo!Phoebe & Hercules (female)

Chihuahua    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    PLEASE SHARE PHOEBE & HERCULES so we can find them their happily-ever-after. PHOEBE & HERCULES met recently in their foster home. PHOEBE is 3 years old and fearless! She loves people and children, and is dog & cat friendly (although she can be a bit bossy around big dogs). PHOEBE most likely belonged to someone at one point, but when she was hit by a car, shattering her front right leg, she never received any veterinary care. The leg healed on it's own (albeit poorly), leaving PHOEBE with a little limp. It is not painful, and she gets along just fine. The vet says there is nothing to do now, as it healed long ago. Perhaps one day, later ... (Read More)in life that leg may experience some arthritis, but for now PHOEBE runs, jumps, and dances like a puppy. HERCULES is 4 years old, super sweet and shy. He was rescued from a terrible hoarding situation, and tends to cling to his people (and PHOEBE) for comfort and guidance. HERCULES is great with cats and other dogs. At first we thought that children would scare HERCULES, but it turns out he loves them! PHOEBE & HERCULES do not have to be adopted together, but they have become a bonded pair. HERCULES follows PHOEBE everywhere. He idolizes the ground she walks on, and it has become clear that he is better off with her (or at least another self-confident dog). PHOEBE & HERCULES are fully vetted. Spayed/Neutered, vaccinated, Heartworm & Lyme NEGATIVE. They are ready for their forever home. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-04-13-00046Chuchi (female)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Adult


    *Update* In the last week Chuchi has decided that having another female Chihuahua for a foster sister is not a bad thing. They have started playing together and she has adjusted to all the comings and goings around her. It takes her a few times of meeting new people first before she will be comfortable with them but then she loves to be picked up. She is looking for her forever home and has love to spare for the person who will be patient while she adjusts to their home. She is paper trained and enjoys going for a walk on a leash.

    My name is Gizmo. I am a tiny male chihuahua mix who weighs 8 lbs and about 6 years old. I haven't always had a meal on my plate so am a little skinny right now. I do love to eat though and should fill out quickly! My crate is my favorite place to be and I love to snuggle with my foster siblings. I am a little nervous but over time have started coming out of my shell and enjoy pets from my foster mommy. She has taught me how to not go potty in the house. I am interested in learning more about cats. I don't want to chase them and would never hurt them. Don't you agree that my underbite is the cutest? I currently live in a foster home in ... (Read More)Texas. If you choose to adopt me then Rescue Road Trips will transport me north! The adoption fee includes the transport fee. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Chihuahua in Connecticut
    Chihuahua Dogs can make good pets in Connecticut if they match your IifestyIe. Chihuahuas are high strung, yappy, tiny dogs. Chihuahuas are loyal to the point of possessiveness and obsession with their masters. Chihuahuas are bold, high energy dogs that make wonderful companions for their owners but are suspicious of strangers. Chihuahuas are not well suited to families with children due to the dogs' defensiveness and tendency to snap when provoked. Chihuahuas need to be thoroughly socialized. Despite their small size, Chihuahuas are often aggressive with other dogs. Chihuahuas do fine living in an apartment but need plenty of daily exercise.

lnteresting Chihuahua Trivia Low-Cost Connecticut Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Some Chihuahuas are so small they can stand upright in a person's hand. Chihuahuas are the smallest dog breed in the world. Chihuahuas were the oldest breed on the North American continent. Though associated with Mexico, Chihuahuas have origins in China.
