Rescue Me ID: 17-04-17-00143Sierra (female)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Adult


    Today's a good day. Do you know why? Because I'm available for adoption, and I just know my family is coming for me. I can't wait to meet them!! Would you like to know a little bit about me first? OK, that's fair. First things first: I love to dance. And I would love to dance for you. I'm told that I'm pretty good -- I've got some serious moves. Second, I'm friendly with all the people I meet. I'd probably be fine with kids, too, but I haven't met any here yet. Third, I'm 5 years old, which is exactly the right age. I'm over the puppy thing (gosh, those years were interesting -- I did some things I'd rather not mention here, but oh well, you ... (Read More)live and you learn), and I'm just settled into adulthood. We've got lots of time to spend together like civilized adults. And fourth, well, I'm just the best. You should seriously adopt me. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-04-17-00121Jennie (female)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Adult


    And here is our sweet girl, Jennie. This wallflower just arrived from Arizona where she just went through major dental surgery. Jennie only has one tooth left and had a full dental performed on April 4th (with two fistulas repaired), so she needs to only eat soft food for a while. Jennie is about 7 years old and about 8 lbs. Her rescuer/foster mom, Sue, reports, 'Jennie was an unclaimed stray from the Maricopa Animal Care and Control Shelter in Phoenix. Jennie is 8 pounds of love. She gives kisses and just loves to lounge on the couch watching tv. She doesn't quite know what to make out of her leash and she needs a housebreaking refresher ... (Read More)course. But, she is very smart and learns quickly. She lived with my four small dogs and LOVED them. I would place her with older children since she startles easily and would not like someone who doesn't know how to handle her gently. She will sit quietly in the car, but if given the choice, she would rather stay home.' We're moving Jennie into a foster home, where it's quieter, so please feel free to call us at 208-794-0944 if you'd like to schedule a meet-and-greet. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-04-13-00346Nemo (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Senior

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

    FOSTER LOCATION: Boise, ID Nemo is an adorable little dog! He's got so much personality in such a small package. Nemo is an 10 year old Chihuahua/Min Pin mix who came to Fuzzy Pawz after finding himself in an Idaho shelter. This handsome boy is completely blind but he can still get around quite well without any help. He is curious and outgoing and gets along great using his other senses It will take him a few days to adjust to a new routine and place but once he does he has no fear in exploring and getting around on his own. When he can't find you or needs something he will chirp or bark. Nemo loves to go outside and wander in the ... (Read More)backyard so he will need a very secure fenced in backyard so he can safely be outside by himself. He loves to play with toys, get his belly rubbed and to take long cuddy naps. He is very good with other dogs and could not care less about cats; pretty sure this dog has never met a stranger either two or four legged. He would be a perfect dog for some looking for a cuddle companion, he loves to sleep on your lap or someone with older kids, since he is skittish of loud noises and fast movements. Nemo is a sweetheart and one great dog that deserves a warm, safe house with kind hands and a gentle heart. Nemo is neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated. He was recently evaluated by a vet and appears to be in good health. His adoption fee is $50.00. If you have a warm lap and a kind heart and can other little Nemo an amazing home please fill out an application at: http://fuzzypawzrescue.com/adopt/adoption-application-2/ (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-04-10-00226Ivan (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Adult


    Five-year-old Ivan joined us on our last Wings of Rescue transport. He was flown in, along with his buddies Tigger and Roo, after we learned that they needed a rescue spot. All three dogs (plus several more) had been living in a home together, so we know that Ivan is good with other dogs. However, in this environment, we did have to separate Ivan from Tigger and Roo. Ivan was trying to be a tough guy and dominate the other two, and we decided they'd be better off apart. In a home environment, we suspect Ivan would enjoy some company, but he'll probably still want to be in charge of the show. Since he's a newer arrival, we haven't had the ... (Read More)opportunity to test Ivan with kids, and we don't know how he feels about cats. But you're more than welcome to introduce Ivan to your entire family at the rescue, and we'll see how they all get along. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-04-10-00224Tigger (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Puppy


    Tigger joined us on our last Wings of Rescue transport. He was flown in, along with his buddies Roo and Ivan, after we learned that they needed a rescue spot. All three dogs (plus several more) had been living in a home together, so we know that Tigger is great with other dogs. Like his best friend Roo, Tigger is somewhat timid. When meeting new people, he can take a minute to warm up. However, he's quick to gain confidence and show you affection once he learns that you're a friend. Tigger makes an excellent lap dog and hops up into your arms whenever he can. Because he's a newer arrival, we haven't had the opportunity yet to conduct ... (Read More)supervised meet-and-greets. We suspect that Tigger is good with older kids, but we're not sure how he feels about younger kids, cats, crates, etc. As we continue to get to know this 1-2 year old, we'll update his profile. In the meantime, come cuddle this guy yourself. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-04-05-00080Biscuit (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Senior


    A 9 year old gentleman, Biscuit joined MCR after being surrendered by a family who could no longer care for him. He is often timid and shy when meeting new people and needs to be adopted by someone who will respect his boundaries and offer him a quiet, calm environment. Biscuit is reportedly good with other dogs, and he previously lived in a home with children. He is both house- and kennel-trained. Since we've had Biscuit, we've found him to be easy to handle and walk, though he does give clear signals when a situation makes him uncomfortable. For that reason, we recommend a mature home.

Rescue Me ID: 17-04-05-00066Chica (female)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Young Adult


    Itty bitty, teeny weeny -- Chica is like a little mouse in disguise as a dog. She is too funny -- pouncing and pawing your leg to be picked up, tucking herself right under your neck to get as close as possible. Chica is equally playful and cuddly, which we happen to think is a very winning combination. We don't have a lot of information about her yet, so we'll update this photo album in the next day or so. But feel free to come and cuddle this pocket-sized pup at the Rescue. She's been great with the men, women, and children she's met here so far.

Rescue Me ID: 17-04-03-00198Moo Goo (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Young Adult


    Do you remember the Utah transport from last weekend? And our last minute-addition to the trip? Yep, that was Moo Goo Gai Pan, and he's now ready for adoption. We bet you're wondering how he got his name. Apparently, Moo Goo Gai Pan (Moo Goo for short) was picked up as a stray in Utah. When he was found, he was busy enjoying a meal somebody had left behind in a Chinese food takeout container. And somehow, the name just suits him. He is quirky and delightful. Ready to run zoomies or to sit on your lap and people-watch, Moo Goo is the right size and temperament for just about everybody. We haven't tested this 2 year old with dogs or kids, but ... (Read More)he's been super friendly to men and women alike. Moo Goo seems like a well-adjusted, socialized little guy. And we know he has great taste in food. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-04-03-00169Chonchos (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Adult


    Got a box of tissues? Because you may very well need them. This is Chonchos. He is approximately 9 years old, and when we saw the post asking for a rescue to help this sweet senior guy, we had to say yes. He was at a shelter in Utah. Along with his best friend for life, Chip. The two were a bonded pair. We said we'd take them both. Then we got a phone call. Chip had been found in his kennel one morning, unresponsive. People rushed him to the vet, but it was too late. Chip had passed. And Chonchos remained, lost and sad without his partner. So when Chonchos arrived, we didn't have the heart to place him in a kennel during his initial hold ... (Read More)period. We just couldn't bear to see him alone. Instead, we found an amazing foster home for him, with one of our staff members. Kimber agreed to take Chonchos home and to give him some much-needed TLC during his week of rest. Kimber says, 'Let me start by saying I have never cared Pom's. This guy is a dream. He loves to be with People and other dogs. He is very sweet and kind. He is fully house trained and kennel trained. 'He has a cute little bear type growl to let you know he needs out. He comes when called, for the most part, he likes outside. Not much good at the sit, but he does stay when told. He will not last long!' Now, Chonchos is at the Rescue and hoping that his family will walk in very soon. He waits at the kennel door for people to come visit with him. He's waiting for you. (Less)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Mr Clyde was found on the interstate with three other small dogs, unfortunately one of them did not make it. Thanks to volunteers, him and the other two companions survived and when his and Bonnie's owners were not found they were placed into rescue. Clyde is a loving boy that loves to play with dogs of all sizes and hang out with his people. He would be a great addition to almost any family.

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Not Good with Cats 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Peanut!! He is a chihuahua mix around one year old. He is great with other dogs and kids but is cat reactive so a cat free home would be best. Peanut is initially wary of some strangers (men, mostly) but will 'warm up' as he gets to know them. He is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, crate trained, and dog door trained!

Chihuahua    Age: Young Adult

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

    This handsome little guy, named Puppy, is a 2 year-old purebred Chihuahua with lots of playful puppy energy still but also loves to settle down and snuggle with his dog siblings and human family. He is a little leery of young kids and may growl and nip if provoked by young kids, so he would be most appropriate for a home with teens and adults. Puppy is in great health and enjoys walks and hikes. He weighs in at about 6 pounds and has no known allergies or medical issues. He is a total charmer and doesn't tend to bark much except with new human visitors, but he warms up after a few minutes. Tip: if you pick him up and let him lick your nose ... (Read More)he warms up right away. Puppy is not fully potty trained or crate trained but with some structure and consistency he will likely learn in both areas. I'm sad about letting him go but I know he'd be happier with an owner who is home more hours of the day to give and receive love. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-02-17-00291Shilo (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Puppy


    Hello, human! Would you like to play with me? Please? Pretty, pretty please? 'Cause I am a PUPPY (just turned 10 whole months), and I want to be your friend. We could have so much fun together. Let's go for a car ride, OK? And then maybe we can go to the park, too. Even the dog park. I love other dogs. Seriously, they make me so happy. Especially when they'll play and wrestle with me. I haven't been around bigger dogs, though. Not sure how I feel about them. They would probably intimidate me. But every time I see a dog my size, I immediately decide that he needs to be my best friend. Right this second. People say I come on a little strong. I ... (Read More)say life's too short not to spend every minute wrestling and romping. I'm a little shy when I meet new people. Unfortunately, my last family didn't give me a lot of time to adjust to them. I warmed right up to the mom -- she was wonderful! But I wasn't so sure about the dad and kids, so after a few days, they brought me back. I thought I'd be bummed, but I kinda liked coming back to see all my friends again. I'm looking for a family that will keep me forever this time. And forever means forever. I will learn to love you all, and if you have other dogs, I think we'll do just fine together. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-02-06-00143Nala (female)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Adult


    Miss Nala arrived recently from Arizona and has been hanging out in a foster home where it's calm and quiet. She is a timid, shy little girl, who would like nothing more than a peaceful home of her very own. Nala is 6-7 years old, spayed, utd on shots, and microchipped. She does very well with dogs and cats -- in fact, she is currently staying in a foster home with one of our recently adopted dogs, Fitz. Nala is both house and kennel trained as well. Because of her temperament, we're looking for a mature household without any kids, as Nala would prefer to be around adults who would respect her boundaries and move a little more slowly. It was ... (Read More)reported that Nala bit a child, but the records are confusing. She has shown no signs of aggression here. Nala was previously sheltered at a facility in Arizona, and during her stay, she became pregnant. Nala had one fetus about 28 days old when the county shelter spayed her. We know that Nala has been through a lot of upheaval and that explains why she doesn't like to be picked up from the front and why she's reluctant to move out of her safe kennel space when she meets new people. Once Nala decompresses in a home, she is an absolute love and wants to hang out on the couch. If you're interested in meeting Nala, please call the Rescue at 208-794-0944. *Please contact us for her adoption fee. (Less)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Baby Belle is ready for her forever home. She is feeling better after her medical and is playing again and enjoying giving and getting loves. Belle is about 3 yrs old, spayed and UTD. She lost a bit of weight after her medical so we are working on that before she is adopted but we are now taking applications on her. Belle is shy at first but warms up fast and loves to be held and close to you. She would do best in a quieter home. She does fine with respectful kids, has finally decided our cat is ok and while she didn't want anything to do with my dogs at first they all sleep together and play now. She will need proper introduction to any ... (Read More)current dogs living in the home. Email brokenheartsrescue@gmail.com if she sounds like the girl for you. Belle has a $85 adoption fee to help with the cost of her medical. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Chihuahua in Idaho
    Chihuahua Dogs can make good pets in Idaho 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 Idaho 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. Though associated with Mexico, Chihuahuas have origins in China.
