Chihuahua    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Fearful/Anxious 

    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. She is very shy with new people and needs very slow introductions, but with another dog she more readily opens up. She is in good health and once she trusts you she loves to sit on your lap. We think Muneca would benefit from confidence building and would love to find a family that would help her expand her comfort zone. Muneca's adoption donation is $225. Application, reference checks, and home visit required. Adopters must live 1.5 ... (Read More)hours driving distance from Romeoville, IL.

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Spotty McSpot has one big dot right in the middle of his back a little circle around his eye and the personality to boot! I think that all adds up to just about a perfect little dog! He does not like to have his picture take tho so we had to try a selfie, Kardashians we are not...this was a lot of work for one good shot-haha! Spotty is otherwise a sweet little guy, loves to be held, enjoys playing in the yard or going for a walk. He is a little shy at first, very unassuming fella, not one to try and push anyone around. He is a good watch dog tho, he will let us know if the kids next door have the nerve to come outside and play-lol. I think ... (Read More)what he really wants is to go play with them as well. Spotty is about 4 years old and 12 pounds. (more pics at sparrowdogs.com) (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-04-19-00317Ruby (female)

Chihuahua    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Low Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Ruby is a beautiful 4-5 year old chihuahua that my family took in on July 4th, 2015. Ruby's original owner was deported and we fell in love with her immediately. After having a new baby it has been very difficult to give Ruby the attention she needs and deserves. Ruby is not good with other animals or active kids. Ruby is very territorial but is also very loyal and loving. She is chipped and I am hoping to find her forever loving home.

She loves long walks and is great on leash unless she sees a ... (Read More)bird. She loves to play with other dogs. She is perfectly housebroken and great in the car. She even lets you give her a bath. She has been treated for worms and fleas and is very healthy and happy now.

They weigh about 4 pounds each - itty bitty! - and they are suuuuuuper cuddly.

Both boys are wonderful with kids and other dogs that are gentle with ... (Read More)them. Because of their size, they'd do best in a small dog savvy home with kids over 5.

Rescue Me ID: 17-04-12-00212Puggie (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Senior

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    DEERFIELD, IL (not Tinley) Puggie is an adorable dog that lost his home of 10 years. Older dogs who have known love like Puggie make good pets because they bond quickly with their new owners. Puggie takes a little longer to warm up to new people but wags his tail when he sees his friends at the shelter who he has gotten to know and love. He likes to go for walks but, like a lot of older guys, he has a strong personality and likes to decide which direction to go. He would also prefer no kids in the house and no other dogs. Please consider coming to meet this little man who still has so much life and love to offer.

Chihuahua    Age: Adult

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

    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 ...

Application, reference checks, and home visit required. Adopters must live 1.5 hours driving distance from Romeoville, IL. For more information on adopting, please email us at info@perfectpooches.org.

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Clyde is a 7 1/2 year old chihuahua who's super tall like a pony and has tons of personality! He is a goofy, happy, feisty boy who loves to roll in the grass. Clyde loves attention and is great with other dogs who let him have his way. He was with us originally last year, and he was adopted. Sadly, he arrived back at ACL as a stray, and his adopters have not come for him. Poor Clyde! In the past, Clyde was in a foster home, and his foster mom reported that he fit in immediately and never caused anything but smiles. Clyde is a bit bossy, and he'll do best with kids 12 and up and other dogs that don't mind a strong personality. Clyde is an ... (Read More)older chihuahua, which means he likes things his way - an adopter who loves chihuahuas for all that personality would suit him perfectly! Despite Clyde's misfortune, we know he has a bright future. Come meet him and make his second time a charm! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-03-31-00405Penelope (female)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Adult

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

    This is Penelope, an approximate 4-year-old Chihuahua mix. In Greek mythology, Penelope is Odysseus' wife, who patiently waited 20 years for his return. She too has been patiently waiting for her forever- home. Penelope's foster mom says she's an amazing girl with so much potential; it's just that shelter life has taken a bit of a toll and she needs a special person or couple with patience, compassion, and perseverance to continue her growth and rehabilitation. Penelope can be one of the most loving and silly dogs once she learns to trust you. She craves affection and wants nothing more than to be a best friend and loyal companion. She ... (Read More)adores spending time in the sun, curled up as a lap dog, getting belly rubs, snacking on chew sticks, and going outdoors. While she will happily join you for lazy time on the couch, she appreciates a bit of daily play time and exercise, too. She's a quick learner and extremely eager to please. Need a buddy to alert you to strange noises around the house? She's your gal! She has proven to be trustworthy while alone in other rooms, but since she can jump rather well and enjoys a bit of inspecting, crating her while out of house is best. Likely due to past experiences, Penelope is fearful and submissive when she meets people. This means she may growl and bark in fear, as well as roll on her back in submission. She is house broken, however, the submissiveness means she may wet in fear until trust in the relationship is established. She seems more hesitant to warm up to men, but continues to work on becoming more comfortable with her foster dad. After three weeks, she still barks at him when he makes an appearance until she remembers he's OK. However, she is already showing improvements in many areas. An ideal match would be a low-key type of single adult or adult couple without children. She may sound the locator bark for a bit when crated since she doesn't like when her people leave, but after living in a shelter, can you blame her? Penelope has done well around calm dogs on walks, so another dog in the house could be possible. She does not have food aggression. She may try to 'cover up' her bone or toy if you try to take it but has never snapped. She currently has a strong aversion to children and loud sounds which could improve with continued therapy and socialization. Penelope is fast on her feet and loves being outdoors, so she needs be leashed or in a fenced-in yard that she can't escape from. Our standard adoption fee is $295 cash or check and $300 credit card ($5 processing fee). It includes spay/neuter when age appropriate at our participating vets, age appropriate core vaccinations, fecal testing, deworming, flea and tick preventative,1st vet visit at one of our participating vets, and micro-chipping. We must have an application, conduct a phone interview, and meet your entire family to approve an adoption. Please email safehavendogsIL@yahoo.com for an application or additional details. Please note that the breeds and sizes posted in this biography are educated best guesses and are not guaranteed. Please consider becoming a foster home while you search for your new best friend. We need foster homes - pounds are overflowing with puppies and adult dogs that are at-risk and need help. We can only rescue as many as we have foster home commitments. Fostering is a rewarding experience for your family. (Less)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Adult

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

    I have a sweet little chihuahua mix that needs a new home. She was my father's, when he passed away last year we brought her to live with us. Unfortunately she is not working out in our home. I have another small dog that is extremely possessive of me and doesn't like Mika to sit on my lap. We also have a parrot, Mika likes to try to get in the bottom of his cage for his leftovers and then he gets very upset and tries to bite her. She is pretty afraid of him when he is out of the cage, but that doesn't stop her from trying to sneak stuff out from under him. Mika likes to snuggle and be held and loves attention. She is also fun to play ... (Read More)fetch and tug with. She is slow to get to know some men but, will warm up when they are around a while. She uses our doggy door to go in and out when she needs to. (we have to encourage her in the morning because she is so excited to see us that she doesn't want to go out). She is used to sleeping in a crate and being in a crate when we are gone. She does not like walking on a leash, I don't think she had ever seen one before she came here. She is skittish about snow and rain. My dad lived in California, in the desert, so he is used to that climate. Grass and trees are still little confusing. I would prefer that Mika go to a rescue so that I know she will be safe. If you are interested, please be prepared to provide vet references (and I will call them). I love Mika, she is a very sweet little girl and I have to be sure she is going someplace safe. I wish things were different, but she really doesn't work in our famiy. (Less)

Chihuahua    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
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)

    Hello....I'm BATMAN! Well, I think that is what he says to the other dogs. Batman is a confident little guy that needs to know everything that is going on around him, he is a little busy body-lol. But that is Ok, he likes to stay busy and spends his days amusing us as well as the other dogs. He loves to play and gets along great with dogs of all shapes and sizes. He came to us due to his stress at a shelter, he can be very nervous meeting new people and will need a patient family that understands he needs time to get to know you. Once he trusts you he is a little love. We think he would do well in an adult household or one with older kids.

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)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Not Good with Cats 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    *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)

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

    Are you always busy? Never any free time? Chewey can relate! This one year old Dachshund/Chihuahua mix is one busy bee. He's always got something to do - he's sniffing over there, cuddling over here, walking around that way, and always on the go go go! Chewey is a confident, well-adjusted little man who knows that people are great. He came to ACL as a stray, and we're happy to help him find his forever family. Chewey makes the job easy by being such an affectionate, playful, intelligent boy! He's a little too mouthy and alert for young kids, and he'd do best with experienced adult dog owners who are interested in spending a bit of time on ... (Read More)training and bonding with him. He's good with other small dogs who match his vibe, and he'd adore a family who has some experience with dogs that have a bit of extra ZIP! Chewey has a strong prey drive, so he's not a good choice for a home with cats or small animals. Chewey loves to go for walks and explore, so an adventurous, active home is a must for this little detective! (Less)

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

    We hope you like your sweets with a dash of tabasco, because that's Sammy in a nut shell! This absolutely adorable 5 year old Rat Terrier/Chihuahua is a perfect blend of sugar and spice. He arrived at ACL as a very frightened stray, but Sammy has set about winning all our hearts! He's an affectionate, low-key, social little guy who bonds tightly and loves to be cuddled. He'd really love a home with one or two people that want a constant companion to dote upon. Like many of his breed, Sammy tends to get feisty when he's frightened or unsure - it's hard to be a little squirt in a big world! For that reason, Sammy would do best in a home with ... (Read More)small dog experience. If you know what little chichis are like, you'll recognize Sammy's bluster for what it is - nerves. Once Sammy trusts you, he's your for life. He'll do best in an adult home, possibly with another small dog or even cat to hang out with. He'd do fine as an only dog, too, as long as you take him for walks, give him lots of cuddle time, and let him hide under a pillow - his favorite place to be! If you'd like to meet Sammy in person, please email Gabrielle at caninemanager@animalcareleague.org. (Less)

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Seizures 

    [Read About Natural Seizure Care] Meet Lupe! She is about 4 yrs old and 6 lbs and she was rescued from Chicago Animal Care and Control where she ended up there as a stray. The vet believes she has a lesion on her spinal chord which results in some neurological abnormalities. She is off all medications, but she currently sees a veterinary chiropractor for monthly treatments. She is not 'normal' in her behavior and probably never will be, but she is still lovable. She has had seizures since she has been in our care, but if she is fed on a regular schedule and sees her chiro once a month she does wonderfully. She is on a raw diet and we ... (Read More)recommend that her new adopters continue her on this diet. She does great with pottying when taken out on a regular schedule. She will also use potty pads. She can do stairs, but isn't the best at them and sometimes needs help going up or down. She sometimes likes to play with toys and loves hopping around the yard. She has had a full blood panel done, a dental cleaning, and an MRI, which the new adopter would have access to obtain the results of these. Please consider adding Lupe to your family. She has had a rough start, but has a lot of love to give. Lupe's adoption fee of $125 goes towards the cost of her medical care and vetting. 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.

    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!

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.
