She is reportedly spayed and up to date with shots. People say she is friendly with kids and other dogs, but can be afraid of some men.

Rescue Me ID: 15-03-24-00065Amigo (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Our Amigo is a delightful little scrapper, who looks like he could have strutted right off the set of the latest Disney movie. Five years old, Amigo was abandoned by his owner to a high kill animal control shelter, in favor of the new puppy, who apparently did not make a favorable impression on our sweet, little Alpha Stud Muffin. Adding a puppy to an adult dog home takes patience, troublshooting, and care to make appropriate introductions. None of that transpired in Amigo's home, and his owner quickly panicked and gave him the boot. His bravado melted in the shelter, confidence gaving way to fear. And so, as soon as we could get our hands ... (Read More)on him, we brought Amigo home to give this handsome heartbreaker a shot at a better life. Amigo has been described by Shelter Staff as a Chihuahua mix, and we can see the signature Chi Apple shaped head. Weighing in at 13 pounds, Amigo has a sturdy, muscular physique, as well as ALL the attitude and panache of the Miniature Pinscher....The King of the Toys. Amigo is a huge dog in a peewee package. Amigo has a big personality and would do best in the company of a confident, experienced adopter, who can provide the exercise and leadership that Amigo needs to be happy. If left to his own devices, or ignored for too long, Amigo can become rambunctious and get into mischief. Amigo would love to join the active lifestyle of an active single or couple who have some solid small dog experience. He is an energetic companion and would benefit greatly from his adopter's daily walk or run. Amigo would do best in a calm, laid back environment, and would not be the best choice for a busy family with small children. Amigo likes to get his yayas out and then chill out and relax, unfettered by toddler touch. We think Amigo would revel in the attention he would receive as the solo canine occupant in his new home, although he could coexist with another well trained dog, if the adopter has good leadership chops, and can maintain a calm environment. Amigo does have a bit of a Napoleon complex, and he tends to express an opinion around large dogs, so adopters should be aware and keep him controlled in dog parks and on daily leash walks. Sometimes our little Comanchero needs to be protected from himself! Amigo's former owner reported that he lived peacefully with cats. Amigo has pretty good house manners and is housetrained and crate trained. Adopters should be prepared to troubleshoot the occasional accident that may occur during the transition to a new potty routine. Amigo is an adult dog, who is accustomed to home life, and not destructive in any way that we have observed. Amigo is in excellent health, and has been neutered. He has had a full dental cleaning and his teeth are now in great shape. He has been vaccinated for rabies, DHLPP (distemper, hepatitis, leptospirosis, parvo and parainfluenza), bordatella and lyme. He has had the 4dx test, and is negative for heartworm, lyme, earlichia and anaplasmosis. He has been dewormed, and had a negative fecal test. If you are interested in Amigo, please write to Denise@eskiesonline.com or call Denise at 720-903-0636 for more info. (Less)

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Jax will be able to travel north after June 1, 2015. Little Jax has had a rough start in his first 3 years on this earth, but we have made a promise to him that he will never have to experience all these hardships ever again. Jax's foster mothers' son was helping a friend move furniture when he noticed a little dog outside next door. He was shivering as it was 20 degrees out and the dog appeared extremely malnourished. Her son went and knocked on the door next door and told them it was too cold for the dog to be outside. The tenants informed him, that it was not their dog and the previous owners had left him there. They said ' we throw him ... (Read More)some scraps.... every once in a while.' Jax's foster mother's son was infuriated by this and he picked up Jax and put him in his truck and took him home. It was there that they bathed him and fed him, and gave him a warm place to sleep. Our foster said you could tell by the look on Jax's face he was extremely grateful. Jax has every reason in the world to hate humans, but he doesn't. He has lots of love to give, and is being shown that humans are good every day now.

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Rowdy will be able to travel north after June 1, 2015. Rowdy is a male one and a half year old Chihuahua / Rat Terrier Mix. He is approximately 14lbs with a moderate activity level. He is neutered and up to date on all vaccinations. He is a funny little guy. He is timid with humans at first, but warms up very quickly. However, with dogs it is a different story. Rowdy wants to play, play, play!! He does not care how big or small he wants to get in on the action. He will bark a little if he gets squished in the action, but it is just because he is saying 'Hey, guys I am down here playing too, watch where you are stepping! Then he jumps right ... (Read More)back in the action. He is a little scared of loud noises, and will retreat to his kennel if he hears one. However, he does not stay there long, because he is very curious and wants to know what is going on. He is not crated too frequently, but has done very well for the few hours he has been crated. He is crated when he rides in the car, because he is so small, and has done just fine. Rowdy did not really enjoy the leash at first, but now he is tolerating it just fine. Rowdy will be available April. He has darted out of the fenced in yard before, because he is so curious, but did not go very far and was very humbly picked up and brought back in. He has not been around cats before. Rowdy has done well with his foster mother's grandchildren ages 2-4.

Animal ID: RDV511GADGET (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    UPDATE FROM THE FOSTER:Gadget is a 16 month old, 9 pound Chihuahua mix that came to us from down South. She was found as a scared and hungry stray, heartworm positive, with a large scar on her rear left leg and a turned out right front leg. No one knows for sure what happened to Gadget, but our guess is that she might have experienced some sort of trauma for such a small, young girl. However, that does not stop her from running and getting around like any other dog--it adds to her character and makes her even more special. Having gone through heartworm treatments, and some good, old-fashioned TLC, Gadget was able to travel up North to come ... (Read More)find her forever home. She is heartworm free and, despite her occasional limp, she lets nothing slow her down. While in foster care Gadget's fears and anxieties have melted away. She is now a healthy, happy, friendly, and very smart little girl. Now that Gadget has been in CT for several months her personality is really blooming. Her foster family says they have never met a Chihuahua as friendly as she is. Several strangers have also commented on her wonderful manners during a trip to Petco. Gadget is smart. She learned quickly to sit, stay, roll over, and go to bed. Gadget has a little southern bell sensitive side. She walks around like a princess, ears perked up with pride and seems to 'take it personally' when her behavior is corrected. She will actually pout for a few minutes. Then her sweet demeanor comes right back. She is house broken, and will even go to the door and scratch, which is uncommon for small breeds. Baths are tolerated. She behaves, but prefers it to be quick. Gadget likes her crate and does wonderfully in it during the day with her favorite toys while her foster family is away, but she has been spoiled and allowed to sleep with her foster mom's 12 year old daughter at night. This is where she prefers to be at night and will curl up and not make a peep until morning. She does not get along very well with her cat brother and sister, but she knows she is not allowed in the room they stay in and respects that boundary perfectly. She would probably do fine with cats that are willing to put her in her place, but her current feline siblings are skittish and she enjoys chasing them. Gadget is not around other dogs much right now but when she does meet a dog she does just fine. Gadget enjoys a car ride, but right now she is not enjoying all this cold and snow. She will tolerate it long enough to go out for a bathroom break, but runs right back in to get to her bed by the fireplace. Gadget has a big fleece blanket that she adores, and makes a nest to snuggle in for a nap. She seems to do very well on a leash but, because of the weather, has not been very interested in walks. She is very curious of her yard and surroundings but when she starts to shiver she heads for the door! If Gadget is not laying in a warm, sunny spot or in someone's lap, she is chasing her toys or chewing her bone. Gadget has a low energy level/exercise need, but she does get playful often and loves a game of fetch with her favorite toy, a nylon stuffed disk with a squeaker inside it. When she gets excited she runs in big, fast circles. You would never know she suffered injuries to two legs! She also enjoys 'wrestling' with all her foster family members and knows to be gentle with her play bites. Gadget is very attached to her 12 year old girl and will cry at the door for a few minutes when she leaves. Gadget's cry sounds like little squeaks. She is OK after a few minutes but her whole body wags when she comes home! When Gadget was first rescued it was recommended that her ideal forever home be a quiet, low- commotion house, possibly with an elderly couple or a home with no children. This certainly would be fine, as she is perfectly content with attention from anyone she can call her own, but after Gadget has shown her true colors, we think a normal household with gentle children (ages 8 and up) would be great, too. She would not do well with being left alone for long periods of time though. If you are an active, outdoor family that is always on the go, Gadget may not be for you. But if you are looking for a little lady with lots of love to give, and who wants nothing more than to be with you, Gadget is your girl!

Animal ID: RDV508HANK (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered 

    UPDATE FROM SOUTH: I had the pleasure of 'babysitting' Hank for two days. I have to say he is an awesome and well adjusted little doggie. He entered my home that has 9 dogs ( personal and foster) with no reservations. He played well with all of my dogs. They range from an 8 pound Chihuahua to a 80 pound bulldog. He snuggled in my bed with the rest of my pack like a member of our group. Hank will make a great addition to any family. Imagine being in the middle of the desert on an extremely hot day. No sign of food and water for miles, you have no idea when your next meal will be, or if you will ever eat again. This was essentially how Hank ... (Read More)was found; by a young girl getting off the bus, who happened to have a huge heart. She saw that Hank was extremely frail and weak ,picked him up and carried him all the way to her house, where she and her mother worked together to begin Hank's rehabilitation. Hank is a male 14 lb Chihuahua mix and is approximately 1-2 years old, he is neutered and up to date on all vaccinations. He has been de wormed and is in the process of being dewormed again. Hank does well in a car and on leash, and is in the process of being house trained. He also does well in a crate. Hank has done well with people of all ages. Although he typically does not pay much attention to children, if they are willing to give him lots of love and affection he is happy to oblige. He enjoys playing with other dogs, but is a bit unsure about kittens and cats. He has not acted out aggressively towards any felines, but tends to shy away. Hank is a submissive dog who just wants to be with people and given affection. An ideal home for Hank would be one where his new owners would be home more often than they are not. As you can imagine his life was quite lonely before and he wants to make sure he will never be left alone again. Hank has a moderate energy level, and enjoys running around, but prefers to be on the couch next to his people. He is still a little frail so he needs lots and lots of healthy treats and food to get him back to an ideal weight. Hank would do well in almost any family as long as they were willing to let him snuggle up on the couch and give him lots of attention to assure him he will never be abandoned again. If his new home were to have children it is recommended that they are over the age of 8, as Chihuahua's have very fine bones and can be easily unintentionally injured by a small child.

    Tucker and Tyler are a bonded pair of chihuahuas that are complete sweet hearts. They get along with other dogs and are wonderful around kids. These two are a bonded pair and would love to find a home together. Both boys are very easy going and low maintenance. They are located in San Antonio but travel arrangements for their journey north will be made through Rescue Road Trips. The transport fee is included in the adoption fee. Why adopt a rescued dog who is already in a foster home? Every time a fostered dog is adopted, space is opened up in a home for another dog at risk of euthanasia.

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Tobey came to us when his owners decided he deserved better - they were unable to properly care for him so they made a tough decision to allow us to find Tobey a home where he would get all the attention he deserves! Tobey is initially very nervous around men, but LOVES women & children. He also adores other dogs! We aren't sure how he does with kitties yet. Tobey is about 3-4 years old and 12-15 lbs. This little guy comes out of his shell as soon as he trusts you! He is a Japanese Chin/Chihuahua mix and will need a family who understands that he is slow to warm up.

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.
