    [Read About Natural Cancer Care] Meet Winnie! Winnie is a gorgeous and charming 9 year old Chihuahua who weighs about 9.5 lbs. She just LOVES people- men, women, kids of all ages- and her absolute favorite activity is getting tummy rubs. She would be a great candidate to visit nursing homes or hospitals or other therapy work due to her amazing temperament.

Winnie was from a local animal control where she came in as a stray and was never reclaimed. She had some mammary growths that were removed and tested. Unfortunately, they came ...

Application, reference checks, and home visit required. Adopters must live 1.5 hours driving distance from Romeoville, IL.

    Qbert is a very sweet, two-year-old, five-pound, special needs fawn and white Chihuahua looking for a loving guardian. Qbert might have been ill as a puppy but, he's doing great now. However, he has been left with a funny tentative gait and his eyes don't appear to focus very well. He has a funny spring in his step. He's a cuddly sweet guy whose former family didn't know what to do with him so they left him outside all the time. When they moved, they dropped him off at the local animal control. He's been in rescue for over a year now and doing great in his foster home. The neurologist said there's been some damage and there is really ... (Read More)nothing that can be done but allow him to live out his life and be loved. He adores people and is very cuddly. He may be best in a home without small children because he gets upset if he accidentally gets knocked over. Due to his special needs, he also gets upset on leash so best in a home where he can be taken out to do his business in a fenced in yard. He's just about housebroken if he gets outside enough. When his foster mom goes to work, Qbert stays in an exercise pen with a puppy pee pad %BD'%BD| he's perfectly content. He also does best eating wet food. He can be an only dog or can live with other gentle-natured dogs. We don't know if he has ever met a cat. He is otherwise healthy, neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped and heartworm-tested. To meet and possibly adopt Qbert, please contact Colleen at info@perfectpooches.org Qbert is being fostered in Romeoville, Illinois.

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Young Adult


    This is Petey he has just arrived in rescue. He came as a stray from Elgin, so we are learning about him. So far he seems like a wonderful little guy. He seems to be potty trained and learned the doggie in hours. He loves other dogs and ignores the cats. We guess Petey to be around 2-3 years old. He weighs about 10 lbs. He is apprehensive when you first meet him but quickly warms up. I would not suggest him around young children. He would also love a fenced in yard and a doggie playmate. It looked like he might have had some hair loss in spots but the more I examine him I believe he is just mixed with a chines crested. We will ... (Read More)have the vet double to check to make sure.

    Meet Muneca (means "doll" in Spanish). She is about 3 yrs old and weighs about 6.5 lbs. Muneca is a sensitive, gentle little lady who would love to find a calm all adult home with another gentle dog.

    Meet Nellie! She is an adult (maybe 7-8 yr old) female chihuahua who weighs about 5.5 lbs. She is a spunky gal who gets along with other dogs, but she has a pretty 'in your face' approach with other dogs, so she would do best with a non-reactive dog who will tolerate her socialization style. She is doing great with crate training and if taken outside immediately she has been doing good about going outside. She will need someone who will be patient with her as she perfects her bathroom skills. Nellie doesn't like to be picked up and held, but she does like to lay with you on the couch and give you kisses. She is missing most of her teeth, as ...

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

    This little man just sauntered into our life easy peasy and stole our hearts, what a little devil. Well, who could help it, did you see that little face??? Papa Cody was left at a shelter after his "Mom" died and the family members could not care for this little rapscallion. I get it, not everyone plans on having a itty bitty senior chihuahua in their life, especially if they have a busy life and large rambunctious dogs. So, he came to us so we can find just the right home for his needs. Papa Cody is a whopping 6 pounds of pure brawn...ok...it is not really brawn. In fact he is a little shy unless you sit on the floor then he will ... (Read More)hurry up and pounce into your lap. He is a little intimidated by big hands reaching down to pick him up-well who can blame him? But, he is a little doll, so sweet and LOVES being outside. With this nice weather he has been over every inch of our yard and then some. Papa Cody gets along great with the other dogs, has a very favorite blankie he adores and will disappear inside of it for a nice warm nap. He is looking for a nice quiet home, maybe a retiree? He is well mannered and and peaceful. Cody is not a yapper, in fact he has a nice deep bark for a little pee wee! He has recently had a full dental and has just 3 teeth and is dong great with his favorite food, Lil Cesars. His adoption fee is $99. Please email Kristine at joysparrows@gmail.com. (Less)

Ya, we catch ourselves calling out to him in our best superhero voice. this little Batman may not be a superhero but he is quite a brave little guy. the only family he had ever known gave him up when he was just 2 years old, he was scared and confused-rightfully so-and did not behave so well.

Personality: Low Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Every dog is a special snowflake, and our Enid is one of the most special of all! This 12 year old chihuahua has had a tough life - she arrived at ACL a couple of months ago as a terribly emaciated stray dog who had signs of ongoing neglect. Enid had hair loss all over her body and the worst dental disease we'd ever seen. But did that stop Enid? No way! From the first moment she was here, Enid set about winning over everyone with her spunky, affectionate, bossy personality. She soaked up love like a sponge! Well, flash forward a few months, and Enid is a brand new woman! She's had a full dental cleaning, and her mouth must feel better than ... (Read More)it has in years! She still has her two 'mammoth tusks' - her bottom two canines protrude from her mouth, giving her an adorable walrus look. She's put on weight, her hair has grown back, and most importantly, Enid's heart is bigger and more open than it ever has been before! She's ready to find a forever family. Enid is a wonderful companion - she's a total lap dog, and she just wants to spend every waking minute with you! Her dream is to find a low-key adult family that wants a cuddle partner for forever. Enid loves to go for walks, too, and she looks great in sweaters! She's doing just great in foster care with feline and canine companions, but she can be bossy and jealous of other dogs, so she'd do best with a canine friend who doesn't mind living with a lady who speaks her mind! Please email Gabrielle at caninemanager@animalcareleague.org if you have room in your heart for our snowflake! (Less)

Chihuahua    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Adoptable Alfie, an 8 year old chihuahua! Alfie is an amazing little dude who came to us as one of 9 dogs that we took out of a hoarding situation of almost 30 dogs. Alfie was sad and in rough shape. With TLC from his loving foster over the past 3 months, Alfie has blossomed into a happier and more comfortable little chihuahua. Alfie is super chill, a total love bug and is crate trained and house trained. He loves to be by his person and he loves to snuggle. While in our care, Alfie has had a full medical work up including a dental with extractions. We also learned that Alfie has heart disease that was not being treated, and he is ... (Read More)in the beginning stages of heart disease. He has a slightly enlarged heart which causes his heart to beat too fast. As a result, Alfie is on two medications- one is to slow his heartbeat so as to not cause stress on his heart, and the other is a water pill that keeps his lungs clear from fluid (which is common with heart disease). Alfie has been doing just fine in his foster with these medications and it doesn't slow him down! The medication is rather inexpensive, we are able to fill several months at a time for around $20 and mail order would be even cheaper. Alfie is able to live a normal life with medication, and he deserves the very best! To meet Alfie email bowwowrevolution@gmail.com for an application. (Less)

    *MUST LIVE IN 50-MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (A SUBURB OF CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT, NO EXCEPTIONS!* Greetings! My name is Perla, and if you are looking for a devoted, sweet-as-sugar little friend to cuddle, I am a 5-year-old Chihuahua who is available for adoption through Fetching Tails Foundation! I am 8 pounds of love, and I have gorgeous caramel-colored fur. My adorable ears always stand at attention because I like to listen to every word my favorite people say, and I love to look at you with my big, beautiful eyes. Fetching Tails Foundation rescued me after my previous owners had to give me away. I have been having lots of ... (Read More)fun in my foster home since my rescue: some of my favorite activities include hanging out with my doggie friends (foster mommy has a couple other little chihuahuas like me!), running around in the yard and throughout the house, and playing with soft, squeaky toys. I get along fabulously with other dogs and think it would be fun to have another furry friend or two in my forever home, however my friends should be of the doggie variety and not kitties. I am a little shy when meeting new humans for the first time, but once I come out of my shell I am the most loving little girl you will ever meet: I love to snuggle, and shower you with my affection. I have pretty great house manners, too: I have been working on my potty training and crate training since my foster mommy saved me. I am good about using a pee pad now that I know what it is for, and will go potty outside when we go out to do our business. With consistency and a routine I will have a perfect record in no time. If you have to leave the house for a few hours to go to work or run errands, I will be content to make myself a perfect little chihuahua nest out of my blankets and doggie bed so I can curl up for a nap. I love to be warm and comfortable, so I hope my forever family has lots of blankets for me to call my own! If a sweet, lovable, little snuggler sounds like the doggie friend for you, please get in touch with my friends from Fetching Tails Foundation and let them know Perla is the darling girl for whom you have been searching! XOXO, Perla If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org/adopt or if any questions please email us! Adoption Requirements: *Be at least 21 years of age *Have the knowledge and agreement of all adults living in the household *Have approval from owner of residence (written in lease) *Have a valid ID with current address *Be approved as a suitable adoptive home by Fetching Tails Foundation *Be prepared to make a lifetime commitment *Lives in 50 mile radius of Itasca within the Illinois border Adoption Fees: Senior dog - 8 years and up, $75 Adult or young dog - 6 months to 7 years, $250 Puppies - under 6 months, $350 (Less)

    Meet Qbert! He is a 9 month old male chihuahua who is in search for a special adopter to care for him. He was surrendered to animal control by his previous owners because they were moving and couldn't take him.

Despite that he is sweet, responsive to touch and he tries to run and play. He has the softest plush fur and he gets along with other dogs. Are you that special person who is willing to care for a special needs dog? Qbert's adoption donation is $250. ... (Read More)For more information, please contact us at info@perfectpooches.org.

Rescue Me ID: 13-10-20-00216MURPHY (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Adoptable Murphy, affectionately called Dobby by his fosters, is the definition of a diamond in the rough. He is an 8 year old, male min pinscher mix. He struggles with first impressions, but given some time and patience, morphs into a very loving and sweet boy. In just the short time he's been with his new fosters (only a few days at this writing), he has become total couch snuggler and wigglebutt with us. He gets very excited to see us and has started playing with toys, even some tug-of-war with his pittie foster sister. Murphy needs a home that will let him blossom on his own schedule; patience (and treats) is the key to this sweetheart. ... (Read More)Given his initial fears with new people and quick movements, a home without young children is best. If you're looking for a loyal best friend and are willing to give him the initial space to learn you, Murphy would be a perfect match. Don't rule out this grumpy looking old man, he has so much life and love left to give and would love to call you his human! If you are interested in Murphy, please email bowwowrevolution@gmail.com!

Rescue Me ID: 13-09-02-00058Benjamin (male)

Chihuahua    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adult Women Only 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Aggressive, Fearful/Anxious 

    Meet little Benjamin. He is about 4.5 yrs old and weighs around 6.5 pounds. He came from a local kill shelter where he ended up as a stray and no one ever came to claim him. He loves playing with toys and is crate trained. He is slow to warm up to new people, but can be a lovable little guy once you earn his trust. We believe he was mistreated in his previous home, which makes him distrustful of people so we are looking for a home with breed experience and lots of patience. Even with people he trusts he has his moments and will try and bite if pushed. He is currently living in a foster home where he gets along with most of the other ... (Read More)dogs. He can be possessive over his food and his people, though, so he would probably do best with someone experienced in managing those types of behaviors. He also can be territorial and does exhibit marking behavior around the other dogs. He will be a project for someone, but so worth it when he climbs up in your lap and nuzzles your neck or rolls over for belly rubs. He has had a rough start in life and really deserves a loving home that will teach him all the joys of being a cherished pet. We will only place him in an all adult experienced home that understands he is going to need proper management. Benji's adoption fee of $150 helps cover the cost of his veterinary care. If you are interested in adopting, please complete an adoption application, which can be found on our website at www.perfectpooches.org under the 'Adoption Process' tab. All dogs are spayed/neutered, current on vaccines, heartworm tested (as appropriate), dewormed, fecal tested, and microchipped. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Chihuahua in Illinois
    Chihuahua Dogs can make good pets in Illinois 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.
