Rescue Me ID: 15-09-03-00322Miro (male)

Chihuahua    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Needs to be Neutered 

    Miro is a 6 year old Chihuahua. I need to find him a forever home. I currently have him and another male chihuahua. They are both alpha males and tend to fight each other for my attention. The other chihuahua is much older and set in his ways so he tends to get annoyed by this one easily. Miro is a sweet dog. He is shy around people, but after a while will warm up to you and turn into your lapdog (as he is with me). Treats will go a long way. He would make someone in need of companionship very, very happy.

Personality: Low Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Needs Vaccinations 

    Theses are a bonded pair. The male is 7 years old and the female is 6. They are rather lazy dogs and like to be lap dogs. We have 3 small children and the dogs are not doing well with the large amount of interactions they're demanding. These are best with no more then one to two children over the age of 5. I say that because they'd need to be able to identify when the dogs would like their space. These two have always been together and should be kept that way. We're looking for a happy supportive home for them. Please let us know if you have questions. We'd like to relocate the dogs quickly, however, will not just hand them over if we ...

    My husband and I are needing to adopt BOTH of our dogs. They are the same breed. Chihuahua/Rat terrier mix. It is mother & son. This picture is of the son. The mother is smaller and black. They are both adults and very calm. They do not bark a lot. Only if someone knocks or comes in but they do not bark continuously. The mother is very calm and gets along with everyone. The brown one pictured has a little temper. Once he warms up to you he is fine. He is not good with kids that approach his face too fast. These are both great dogs with a long life left in them. We recently had a baby and we do not give these dogs the love & attention they ... (Read More)deserve. We desperately need to find them a home. Both are crate trained and you can have their cages. They MUST stay together. Neither dog has ever walked on a leash so a fenced in yard is a must! We ask that you be an animal lover and take good care of our dogs. Both dogs are fixed. (Less)

    Meet Tinkerbell! DOB 5/13/15 Chihuahua Mix About 7 pounds! Tinkerbell found herself abandoned and all alone in Florida...which is a very scary place for such a tiny girl! Between the people that abandoned her and the gators, she has had a very RUFF start to her life. We brought her to Illinois to show her what it is like to be loved and pampered. Her foster tells us that she loves to run and play. She is also wonderful with kids, other dogs and cats. The family that she chooses to adopt will be very lucky to have her! Illinois law requires that all of our dogs and puppies be spay/neutered within 30 days of adoption. In order to fully ... (Read More)comply with this regulation and reduce the number of homeless dogs and puppies, we do not permit out of state adoptions of unaltered dogs or puppies. Puppies have special needs and require a home where there will be someone available to care for, socialize, and train them during the day. If your family is away from the home for several hours at a time, please consider adopting a 'teen' or adult dog. Standard adoption fee is $295 (cash or check) and includes spay/neuter when age appropriate at our participating vets, up-to-date on shots, fecal, deworming, frontline, 1st vet visit at one of our participating vets, micro-chipping and 30 days of shelter care insurance. We must have an application, conduct a phone interview, and meet your entire family to approve an adoption. Please email safehavendogs@yahoo.com for an application or additional details.

    Apollo is %100 chihuahua. I have had him since he was 8 weeks old. He is a very good dog. He has lived with other dogs and cats they have their fights just like brother do.

He likes to cuddle under the covers with you. He will potty outside but also uses potty pads.

Health: Needs to be Spayed 

    Friendly, loving, and in need of a stable home. I can't keep him because I moved back in with my parents and I don't have the ability to keep him anymore. Very sad to let him go, but he deserves a loving home that can accept him as soon as possible. If I do not find a home for him before tomorrow, I will have to bring him to the humane society.

Rescue Me ID: 15-07-19-00539Tater Tot (female)

Chihuahua    Age: Adult

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

    Meet Tater Tot! She is one the the most gentle and sweetest dogs we have ever had. We believe she is about 5-6 yrs old. Tater has come a long way. She originally came from a local open access shelter where she had come in as a "stray". Poor Tater was so obese and could not walk at all so we are sure she was dumped by her previous owner- as she certainly wasn't even capable of "running away" even if she wanted to. She barely could hold herself up. Through several months of proper vet care, measuring her food, water therapy, and exercises she has went from 9.6 lbs to 5.7 lbs- which is HUGE! The vet believes her rear ... (Read More)legs were not formed properly from birth, which causes her some challenges when walking. She gets along great now, but will never walk normally. She does best on grass, carpet and rubberized flooring. She will need a family who will be dedicated to keeping the weight off of her and to continue working with building her muscles in her rear legs. Tater also has low thyroid, which she is on daily medication for, which is fairly inexpensive. She gets along with other dogs, does great with her housetraining and will be a wonderful companion for the lucky family who adopts her. Tater Tot's adoption fee is $250. 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)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    **good* with kids, but probably best in a home with older children or only adults*** is a 2 year old chihuahua mix. We took Manny in to our home in December, because the person who had was going to put him to sleep because he did not want him anymore. We never planned on keeping Manny we just wanted to make sure he was not put to sleep. We decided to try and keep him, but after having the last 6 months we have realized he is not a good fit with our family. He is a very sweet little dog who loves to cuddle and be with people. We have a 2 year old son, a 9 month old baby, a 10 year old terrier mix ( about 40 pounds), and a shitzu and Manny ... (Read More)gets along great with all of them. The problem we have is Manny needs more training and attention than we can give him right now. He has had some potty training issues and I was hoping after having neutered this would no longer be a problem, but unfortunately it still remains an issue, however, he does know that he is supposed to go outside to potty and will go to the door to let you know he needs out. He also tends to want to chew on the kids toys. I believe that with the proper training and a person/family who has more time to spend with him he could get past both of these habits. My husband works full 2 times at 2 jobs and I go to school full time and with the new baby and 2 other dogs Manny is not getting the attention or training that he needs and deserves, so we feel it would be best for him to go to someone with more time to give him. Manny must go to someone with patience, and preferably someone with experience training dogs. We are asking for a $100 re-homing fee to ensure he goes to a good home. Interview will be necessary for anyone interested in Manny. (Less)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adult Women Only 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    This is a real cutie. He is around 2 years old and weighed in at 18 lbs. He was rescued from a high-kill shelter in TX. He is very scared of men, so a household with women only is ideal for him. As to breed, that is a complete guess. He's on the smaller side, so could be a Chihuahua mix with maybe some kind of terrier, maybe even some lab. All we know is that he is way too cute.

    Meet Louie! He is about 5 yrs old, weighs 5.5 lbs and is a lovebug. He loves to be held and cuddled. He was rescued from Chicago Animal Control where he came in as a stray. We believe his previous owners spent a lot of time holding him. He has a collapsing trachea and luxating patellas, which will need to be monitored, but he does fine with both and no treatment is needed at this time. He gets along well with other dogs, but he seems to prefer smaller dogs. He does well with his housetraining and will either go outside or use a pee pad.

    Trixie has been a wonderful, adoring pet that has been displaced by a baby in household. As our baby is entering her toddlerhood, she tests the resolve of even the most patient chihuahuas.

    Chewy has been an excellent and loyal companion but has occasional issues with our new baby. Chewy desires constant human contact that the baby detracts from, causing some friction. In a home without toddler distractions, he should assimilate and become a fantastic and loyal addition to his new family. He is currently in a household with another chihuahua and has a close bonded relationship. I would love to see them go as a pair, since they have such a wonderful coexistence. Chewy is a 10lb, white typical chihuahua. His 'sister,' Bellatrix, is a 3lb dark blonde that has known him since she was a puppy.

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. Though associated with Mexico, Chihuahuas have origins in China. Chihuahuas were sacred animals to pre-Columbian Native Americans.
