Chihuahua Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Needs Vaccinations 

    Mylo is the adorable little guy on the left. Mylo has had no health problems, but is due for some vaccines. Mylo doesn't do very well with children. We have a 2 year old son and Mylo growls at him and snips, but has never bit him, or any other child. I think children make him nervous b/c he's so small. Mylo takes a little time to warm up to new adults, but once he is comfortable with someone, he is very loving. Mylo doesn't do well with other dogs except his sister, sophie (dog on right in pic). We are not willing to adopt Mylo out by himself, we will only adopt Mylo and Sophie out together! We have had Mylo since he was 8 weeks old ... (Read More)and has been very well taken care of....probably a little spoiled!! We are very sad to be adopting our dogs out, but due to our traveling schedules and our desire to have another child we just can not provide the same attention and affection that Mylo is accustomed to.

Sophie was attacked by a pitt bull about 8 years ago, so she doesn't do well with other dogs (except her brother, Mylo....dog on left).She does ok with children....she doesn't like them, but she doesn't bite. We are not willing to adopt sophie out by herself, her brother must be adopted too....they love each other too much! We have had sophie since she was 8 weeks old and she has been extremely well cared for!!! We are interested in adopting sophie (and Mylo) out because we travel to visit family out of state a lot and its too ... (Read More)expensive to bring both dogs on a flight or to pay for in home dog sitting. We also have a two year old son and we are hoping to have another baby and we feel that we can't give our dogs the same attention and affection that they are accustomed to. Sophie will be 13 in November, so she isn't high energy and just likes a comfy lap to snuggle up on. Sophie is due for some vaccines, but overall her health is great! (Less)

    Sadie is an adorable, friendly, and fun, blind, eight-year-old, four-pound, female Chihuahua looking for a loving guardian. Sadie adores being held and being picked up and carried around. Sadie gets around just fine in life without her sight. She is a happy little girl whose tail is always wagging; in fact, her entire body is always wagging.

Rescue Me ID: 15-04-20-00485Sir Wellington (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    My ex-girlfriend saved Sir Wellington from an acquaintance that was no longer able to keep him about 3 years ago. She has since moved to Israel, leaving me with Wellington. I simply do not have the time to take care of him myself or the attention to give him that he deserves. He is a truly great dog: super sweet and affectionate, very gentle with children, plays very well with other dogs, and very rarely barks. I would almost say he might be a perfect chihuahua besides the fact that he does have a bit of separation anxiety, which has gotten tremendously better over time. Being completely transparent, this anxiety can get as bad as constant ... (Read More)barking, scratching at doors, tearing down curtains, and urinating/defecating in rooms. However, he has gotten to the point of being left alone and found sleeping in his bad calmly upon my return. His anxiety seems to be dependent on the circumstances under which he is left alone. He has been crate trained before which worked very well, but I am gone for too long of periods at a time to continue doing this to him. He would make a great addition to someone looking for a loving animal that can give him attention! (Less)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Lucas is a sweet, active and fun seven-year-old, 10-pound, male Chihuahua/Rat Terrier-mix looking for a loving guardian. Lucas was left at Chicago Animal Care and Control when his family moved to a no-pets apartment. He gets along beautifully with dogs of all shapes and sizes, but can certainly live happily as the one and only dog in the home. While he currently lives in a foster home with multiple dogs and cats, he tends to chase the cats for fun. I think Lucas looks older than he actually is, but his activity level makes him seem much younger. Lucas bonds very closely with his people and is very loving. He sleeps in bed with his family ... (Read More)or on the couch with you. He just loves being a lap dog. He is housebroken, not at all destructive and has never been crated since his days at the pound. Lucas enjoys carrying his stuffed animals around the house with him. He loves walks and car rides and when left alone at home tends to bark for a few minutes when you leave, so he may be better in a house than in an apartment or condo. He also enjoys being dressed up in sweaters or wrapping himself up in a blanket for his naps. He is very healthy, neutered, de-wormed, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped and heartworm-tested. To meet and possibly adopt Lucas, please contact Jill at dottysummers@gmail.com or 407-415-0549. He is being fostered in Chicago. His adoption fee of $250 benefits the rescued pets of Famous Fido.

    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.

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 & 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, she has had all of her vetting, but she should continue to see Dr. Carl for adjustments, who practices vet chiropractic and kinesiology. She is not 100% normal and probably never will be, but she is still lovable. She has had 3 seizures since she has been in our care, but if she is fed on a regular schedule and sees Dr. Carl in Winfield, IL ... (Read More)once a month she does wonderfully. She is on a raw diet from Stella and Chewy's- the Duck Duck Goose flavor- and we recommend that her new adopters continue her on this diet. Although she gets along with other dogs for the most part, if another dogs gets upset and starts barking she will go after them. For this reason, we think it would be best that she be placed as an only pet or with someone who would be willing to manage those occasions. Luckily- because of her neurological issues her aim isn't the best. 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 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 $200 goes towards the cost of her medical care and vetting.

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 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 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 as an only dog or 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 $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)

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 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.
