Rescue Me ID: 16-08-21-00055Sylvio (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Sometimes it's hard to understand what some people are thinking, or if they are thinking. At the age of four, Sylvio was abandoned in an empty building. When Animal Control Officers found him, Sylvio had been trapped, for several days, in his very own plaid dog carrier. His reintroduction to Humanity began with the harsh intake process of big city Animal Control. Shelter reports on Sylvio portrayed a frightened, untrusting soul, who clearly needed a break in life. We invited him into our rescue so that we could build his connection to people again, before trying to put him in a permanent home. Sylvio is a tiny boy, weighing only 8 pounds. ... (Read More)He appears to be largely a Miniature Pinscher, but his Min Pin bravado and chutzpah have been suppressed during the unwieldy rescue process. He has a black and tan, short, smooth coat, but the coloring is lighter than we see in purebred Min Pins. We guess that he has a bit of Chihuahua in his DNA. Sylvio is the consummate lap dog. Sylvio has adapted to foster care pretty well. Our first 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 Sylvio relaxes, he is an absolute love and craves human attention. Sylvio 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 Silvio to be absolutely magical in charm and character once he warms up. He is not overly high energy, and a couple of leisurely 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 Sylvio 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 cats. Right now, he's missing his buddy Taco, who was recently adopted. Sylvio 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. Besides training exercises, Sylvio has shown some affinity for swimming, and he loves to hike in the woods. Outdoor activities provide excellent mental and physical stimulation for a shy dog. Sylvio 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 Sylvio, please write to Denise@eskiesonline.com or call Denise at 860-908-9738 for more info. Eskies Online is a 501(c)(3) Multibreed rescue group that serves unwanted American Eskimos and other dogs in need. Our group of volunteer foster homes spans the North East, and our adoption territory extends from Maine to eastern Pennsylvania, Delaware, and parts of northern Maryland. Once an adopter is approved, we arrange transportation. We do not adopt dogs beyond our territory.

    Layla is a sweet 3 year old chiweenie girl who loves cuddle time and loves nothing more than being next to you. This sweet girl is about 14 lbs, fawn colored with some black stripes on her tail. Layla is well mannered and gets along great with other dogs, doesn't bark, and is potty trained when you show her where to go. Layla knows how to use a doggy door and walks well on a harness.

Rescue Me ID: 16-08-18-00109Princess Stephanie (female)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Princess Stephie was just one year old when the betrayal occurred. Her cavalier owner deposited her in big city Animal Control, where owner-surrendered dogs have only 48 hours to attract the attention of someone who might network him/her to freedom. Otherwise, they face euthanasia. Frightened dogs like Stephie have little chance, because they don't show well enough to be accepted into the shelter adoption program. Shelter evaluators could not get a fair sense of Stephie, since her world had so thoroughly capsized. Stephie's only hope was a Rescue to step up and give her the space she needed to relax and adjust slowly. We are delighted to ... (Read More)have Stephie in our Rescue. She seemed shy and unsure at first, but has warmed up beautifully, and has become one of our favorites. Stephie is a pretty mix of Dachshund and Chihuahua. She's a tiny girl, at 13 pounds, and she has the characteristic Doxie elongated spine. Her floppy ears are half mast, and she has a bit of an 'applehead,' to affirm her Chihuahua DNA. Her structure and stance suggest Doxie, but she's less prone to spinal issues than purebreds. At first meeting, Princess Stephie seems shy, and takes a few minutes to size up strangers. She seems eager to connect with people, and once her initial hesitation subsides, she is extremely warm and loving. She would really benefit from a loving connection with the right person. Stephie would be a great fit for an active single or couple, who can provide sufficient daily exercise, and who have the patience to let Stephie warm up slowly. She could easily join a multi-dog home, with other calm well-behaved dogs. We haven't tried her with cats, but she probably would coexist nicely. We would like to steer clear of toddlers and young children, because they're overzealous attentions might overwhelm her. Princess Stephie has good house manners and is house trained and crate trained. Adopters should expect to troubleshoot the occasional accident that will inevitably occur during her transition to a new home. She is in optimal health, and has been recently spayed. She has been vaccinated for rabies, DHLPPC (distemper, hepatitis, leptospirosis parvo, parainfluenza and coronavirus), and canine flu. She has been boostered as needed. She has had the 4dx test, and is negative for heartworm, lyme, earlichia and anaplasmosis. She has been dewormed, and microchipped. If you are interested in Princess Stephie, please write to Denise@eskiesonline.com or call/text Denise at 860-908-9738 for more info. (Less)

    Pookie's Story: Pookie was being given away at a corner store. A good samaritan took him in; loved and nurtured him. In the mist of reaching out for additional help Pookie was attacked by a large breed dog. There was a possibility Pookie would be paralyzed but thankfully he healed 100%. Since his incident Pookie has healed and is doing better than we even expected. He is about 2 years old, 10 pounds, male chihuaha mix. He is neutered, up to date on shots, heart worm tested and microchipped. He is good with children, cats and other dogs. We do prefer for Pookie to enter into a home with medium to smaller size dogs. He does not have an ... (Read More)issue with larger dogs (he lives with one now) but we dont want to put him into a situation of traumatizing him again. Pookie does great on the leash. He loves walks but prefers short walks, his little legs get tired quickly. He is crate trained but is not a fan! He also has learned how to sneak out of his crate... lil' smarty-pants! Housetrained as well. Pookie rules the foster home his is in, he will find a way to sit on his humans lap & made his way from the crate, the bed by the human bed, now in the bed. He prefers to snuggle under the covers up against his human. Pookie is one heck of a pup! He deserves only the best! Application, home check, reference check, vet check, meet n' greet and adoption fee all apply. CT adoptions only. (Less)

Personality: Low Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    My name is Calvin and I have the most adorable smile! I'm not much for playing with toys or chasing balls. I'd rather snuggle in a blanket or sit on your lap. Don't get me wrong I do like a good walk! I'm in a foster home with other dogs and doing well. However, I'm not comfortable with a lot of doggie choas, so I might be better suited to a quieter house, one doggie companion, or only dog. I am a little dog with a big personality so I just need someone who is dog savvy to keep me in line. Am I right for your family? I hope so! Want to see more pictures of me?

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. Chihuahuas were sacred animals to pre-Columbian Native Americans.
