He loves his crate and is happy to sleep there at night. Soldier is very smart. He has already learned to 'sit' even though he is so excited he doesn't usually stay sitting very long! He loves his toys and a good bone to gnaw on. He is submissive to bigger dogs at the dog park but isn't afraid. He loves walks and being outside, but he is curious so you'll need to tie him out or have a fence with no holes. He'll chat with the neighbor dogs but otherwise doesn't make much ... (Read More)noise at all. With some training and confidence, Soldier will learn to stay 'down' and will be less mouthy. He does not bite, but he licks and explores with his mouth. He is friendly with men, women and children, but might best suited for a home with older children. When Soldier arrived to Safe Haven, he was Heartworm +. He has gone through his entire treatment and is now ready to find a family who will love him and treat him right!

    If you're ideal treat is a chocolate-covered pretzel, Margo is your perfect dog! She's sweet and salty in equal measure - in other words, she's a terrier! This little Jack Russell lady is loyal, super affectionate, and will stick to your side like glue. If you're reading a book, Margo will be right beside you. If you're going for a walk, Margo is coming along! She's a feisty little lady, too, who likes to tell you what's what from time to time - trust us, it's very charming! Margo is two years old, and she arrived at ACL as a stray. She lived happily in foster care for a couple of weeks, and her foster mom reports that she's a very sweet ... (Read More)lady who does very well in the house. She'd love a home where she can cuddle and snuggle with people all day, and then go for walks in the evening! Margo is a Jack Russell, through and through, so she can be a loudmouth. She'll need a freestanding home so that her barkiness doesn't bother the neighbors. She'll do well with children 10 and up, but her dream home has just a couple people who she can devote her whole heart to! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-09-06-00042Little Bit (male)

Chihuahua    Age: Young Adult

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

    LITTLE BIT is ready to find his forever home. He is a 4 yr old chihuahua who weighs about 8 lbs. Look at the smile on this handsome boy! Not too long ago he didn't have much to smile about. His mom suddenly passed away and left him and his housemate, Shorty, without a guardian. Fortunately, we were notified about their situation and were able to take them both in. Based on what we have seen Little Bit and Shorty get along ok, but are not a bonded pair so they can be adopted separately. In general, Little Bit is a 'little bit' nervous, so we are looking to place him in an all adult home who will take time to build a relationship with him. He ... (Read More)has been shown to get along ok with other dogs with a proper introduction. He will need a bit of work on his housetraining, but we think most of his accidents are due to him not being neutered when we got him. We are hoping to see some improvements after the hormones have gotten out of his system. He has some serious springs and can jump pretty high when he is excited. We think he might make a great agility dog! How fun would that be? Little Bit's adoption donation is $250, which helps cover the cost of his medical 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), fecal tested, and microchipped. (Less)

He is still a young boy, maybe about 1.5-2 yrs old, with short legs, a gorgeous coat and weighs about 10 lbs. He is initially timid with new people, but once you gain his trust he is a big ham and loves to be pet all over.

    TRUDY wants to be your new family member! Trudy is such a pretty little lover girl who is about 3 yrs old and weighs around 8 lbs. She is a happy girl who will show you by smiling at you with her teeth. This girl loves to have her back scratched and for you to talk to her. Such a smarty pants- she already knows how to stand on her back legs and wave her paws, but she would love to find a home where she can learn more tricks and maybe even go to classes.

Chihuahua    Age: Adult

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

    Beaker is a 4 lb lanky, 6-7 yr old chihuahua, or as we lovingly call him a Mexican jumping bean! He was pretty impossible to get his picture taken as he is constantly on the move, so we apologize for the photo quality. Beaker was in very poor condition when he came to us- basically hairless with few teeth and a deteriorating jaw. With proper vet care and good nutrition he is now on the road to recovery. He is the happiest, most friendly little guy who has never met a stranger. He gets along great with other dogs and wouldn't mind going to a home with a friend or two- as long as they are gentle with him. Due to his bottom jaw issue he is on a ... (Read More)diet of canned food, which he does not object to! He is very food motivated, he does great with his housetraining, and he is not a big barker. Beaker's adoption donation is $250, which helps pay for the cost of his medical 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.

    Carlee is a 2.5 year old chihuahua. She came to us from Chicago Animal Care and Control where she was scared and shut down. Carlee is super affectionate and sweet, she is a gentle soul that has slowly learned to trust again. We are not certain of her past but when Carlee first came to us she was afraid of her own shadow! She has come so far! Carlee loves walks, loves the company of another small dog, and back scratches. Carlee would do best in a home that gives her time to settle in and likely a home with children over 10years old. Carlee loves the neighborhood kids who give her treats but does best with kids that are willing to approach ... (Read More)slowly. Carlee is such a gem and deserve to learn the love of a caring owner. Email us for an application and opportunity to meet Carlee. Bowwowrevolution@gmail.com (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-08-10-00433Rodney (male)

Chihuahua    Age: Adult

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

    Someone ordered a side of tabasco when they made Rodney! This spicy little chihuahua is a perfect mix of affection and feistiness. Rodney is about 6 years old, and yes, his tongue always peeks out of his mouth like that. Rodney came to ACL after being abandoned in a crate in a Walmart parking lot, taken to another high volume shelter, and waiting for many weeks. Long story short: it's been a tough few months for Rodney. Luckily, a loving foster family stepped up to give this tiny stinker a chance at the good life - and he's taking advantage of the opportunity! Rodney's foster family reports that all he wants to do in this world is lay on a ... (Read More)human lap! He spends most of his days cuddled up one whoever is available. He loves to be with people, and he'll follow his foster family up and down the stairs all day long. Rodney is a tiny chihuahua - he only weighs 5 pounds! This size disadvantage came make Rodney a little quicker to get snippy when he's scared than other dogs. If Rodney's adopters are chihuahua people, though, they'll understand that this is all part of the breed - a big personality in a small package! Because of Rodney's sensitivity about his size, he'll do best in a home with kids 12 and up who don't mind making way for little Rod when he's in a mood! Rodney is good with other small dogs who don't mind him being the boss, and he'll likely do well with kitties, too. If you're interested in meeting Rodney, please email Gabrielle at caninemanager@animalcareleague.org to make an appointment. You won't regret it! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-08-10-00414Sammy (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
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)

Chico is pretty friendly, but Mini needs a little more time to warm up. They are not at all nippy, barky or growly '| just a tad bit shy. They will both dance and do just about anything for a treat! Mini and ... (Read More)Chico are healthy, up-to-date on vaccines, spayed/neutered, micro-chipped, heartworm-tested and on monthly preventative.

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.

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