Rescue Me ID: 14-04-13-00076Charlie (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Charlie is a year and a half old. He has gained weight since this photo was taken (because my husband spoils him and feeds him people food). He gets along with our two other dogs and is scared of our cat. We love him, but we haven't been successful in housetraining him and after a year and a half, our house is almost unliveable because of the urine in the carpet. Totally our fault, I know. We are not vigilant enough and have given up. Charlie needs and deserves a fantastic loving home. I just don't feel we can keep him any longer because our house is so bad.

Rescue Me ID: 14-04-07-00025Frito (male)

Chihuahua    Age: Adult

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

    Looking for a foster-to-adopt home for Frito! Frito is about 6 years old and is a tiny boy weighing in at 3.8 lbs. He came to us dangerously anemic, which required him to get a blood transfusion. We discovered that his body was attacking his red blood cells and that it most likely started due to an underlying tick born disease (Ehrlichia). He is on the mend and gets better every day, but the vet believes it will take until October until he is fully weaned off his current medication (steroids and immune suppressants). Due to the length of time for recovery we would like to find his perfect forever home for him now that will agree to ... (Read More)foster him until his treatment is complete. His recovery period will consist of giving him oral medication twice daily and bringing him to vet appointments in Bolingbrook, IL approximately every 3 weeks. Frito gets along with other dogs, but we will be very selective about what dogs he is placed with due to his teenie size and delicate health. He has started playing with toys and is very lovable with his person. He is quiet in the home and trained to use pee pads, with only an occasion accident off the papers (only #2). He is missing some toes on one of his front feet, too. We believe this was due to some sort of trauma, but this doesn't affect his ability to walk or get around. Frito's adoption fee of $275 goes to help cover the cost of his very expensive 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), fecal tested, and microchipped. (Less)

Chihuahua    Age: Young Adult

    Meet Ginger! Ginger was found running the streets of Humboldt Park in Chicago with another dog, who we believe to be her sister (Mary Ann). When she was finally caught it was discovered that she sustained a very bad injury to her rear leg, which required amputation- so know she is a beautiful 3- legged sweatheart. The vet believes she is between 1-2 yrs old. She is one of the sweetest dogs ever! Ginger gets along with other dogs and we would like to see her be placed with a family with a similar sized, gentle dog or with her sister. She has a very delicate little frame with long legs, but only weighs 4.0 lbs. Ginger's adoption fee of ... (Read More)$275 goes toward covering her vet care.

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Gavin is a chi-weinie, a chi dachshund cross we believe. He is Tiny, only about 7 pounds, although he needs to gain about a pound since he is a bit too thin. You can see how little room he takes up on the seat. I don't know how he ended up in a shelter, they said he was a stray that was not claimed. He is SUPER sweet and adorable, so much cuter then I managed to get on the freedom ride photos. He traveled great on the 12 hour ride home from the shelter. Perfect with the other dogs and puppies, although thought he may big bigger and tougher then the other tiny male dog we rescued. He was at a very rural shelter that was so over filled we paid ... (Read More)boarding to get him and 5 others out and kept safe, plus leave a bit more room to help dogs there have another few days. Gavin will be neutered before he is available. We can hold him with a deposit for the right family until he has been neutered. Current or past Vet number, and a contract is required to adopt. If your seriously interested in Gavin please send vet information in first email to us. (Less)

    Tinkerbelle is 12-13 lbs age almost 4 yrs old. She came in as a stray so I did not know much about her.

She is fine with adults and older kids. She is housebroken and well behaved. She tries to be Alpha but it's only a defense mechanism. I can't keep her because she is not doing well with our 1 year old baby. If you decide to take her

Chihuahua    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Adult Women Only 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Needs Vaccinations, Abused/Neglected, Aggressive 

    Pepper was taken in by my daughter after some of her in-laws abused him. He growls, snaps at people and does not like to potty where he is supposed to potty. Especially urine. Once he gains your acceptance he is no longer aggressive with you. My daughter does not have the time to train or give affection like he deserves as she just had her fifth baby. She loves him dearly and will only give him to someone who has the time and energy to spend with him. He craves attention and is food aggressive.

    Brooke is a character, she will definitely make you laugh! She has very distinct personality traits that border on dominant but she's also an absolute snuggle bug, Brooke is fearful of strangers and will bark when anyone new comes around but once she is comfortable with you she is quiet and lovable to those she holds dear. Brooke is currently in foster with four other dogs and is hoping that her forever home has fewer dogs because she really wants more individual attention.

Rescue Me ID: 14-01-21-00029Lucy (female)

Chihuahua    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Low Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Seizures 

    [Read About Natural Seizure Care] Meet Lucy! She is about 8 yrs old and weighs just over 5 lbs- just a little peanut. We rescued Lucy from a local high kill shelter where she had been abandoned in a cardboard box. Who could do that to their beloved pet? She is currently living in a foster home with several other dogs and she gets along with all. She doesn't really interact with them, but is happy to coexist. She has never once barked or even really cried so she would do well in an apartment/condo type situation. She is pretty well potty pad trained and will also go outside. She isn't much for walks and requires minimal exercise. Her ... (Read More)favorite activities are napping and eating. Lucy was once a very obese little lady, but we monitored her food intake and is now back to her ideal weight. Lucy will need a special home to care for her as she suffers from seizures and hypothyroidism. We just started her on the thyroid meds, so we are hoping that once she is stabilized on that her seizures will dissipate. She will need to be kept on the medication and will need routine blood tests to monitor her health. Her potential owners will need to understand the financial responsibility this will entail and commit to continuing this level of care. She is currently eating a raw diet (Stella and Chewy's) and it was recommended that she stay on this to help with seizure control. Lucy's adoption fee of $150 goes towards the cost of her 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)

    MILO is a sweet, gentle 2-year-old chihuahua. He's on the larger size for a chihuahua--he's about 8 pounds! MILO is a little shy at first, but he's a crazy snuggle bug after he gets to know you.

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Tobo is a handsome, sweet, shy, and snuggly, three-year-old, 11-pound, male, long-haried Chihuahua-mix looking for a loving guardian. Tobo was dropped off at Chicago Animal Care and Control when his family could no longer care for him. Tobo is a bit nervous at first with new people, but when he gets to know you ... he is all love and cuddles. It took about three days for Tobo to feel comfortable and at home in his foster home after being rescued. Tobo is great with other dogs; don't know if he's ever met a cat. Tobo is perfectly housebroken and crate-trained. He is a great companion and happily sleeps in bed with his foster mom and her other ... (Read More)dogs. Tobo is very healthy, neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped, de-wormed, heartworm-tested and on monthly preventative.

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

Chihuahua    Age: Young Adult

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

    Meet little Benjamin. He is about 3.5 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, is quiet in the home and is crate trained. He is slow to warm up to new people, but is 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. He is currently living in a foster home where he gets along with the other dogs. He can be possessive over his food and his people, though, so he ... (Read More)would probably do best as an only dog or with someone experienced in managing those types of behaviors. 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. Benji's adoption fee of $200 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)

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

    Meet Big Bubba! He is a larger min pin/chihuahua mix that weighs 13.3 lbs and is guessed to be about 7 years old. When you first meet him he can be somewhat reserved, but he is very friendly. He loves rolling in the grass and getting his tummy rubbed. He loves walks and is pretty good on the leash, but probably could stand some additional training on not pulling. He is currently living in a foster home with other dogs of various sizes and he gets along well with all of them, although he does need to be introduced slowly to new dogs. He knows 'sit' and would be eager to learn new commands as he is really smart. He will need a strong ... (Read More)leader to guide him. Please consider giving Bubba his forever home.

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.
