Rescue Me ID: 18-06-15-00280Sparky & Lilyan (female)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Adult

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

    What an adorable pair are they not? Sparky and Lilyan do not have to be adopted together but why not, between the 2 of them they barely way 12 pounds put together! Sparky is the little chi boy, he is about 7 years old and is such a happy and spunky little guy. Lilyan is a little scruff of a girl, she is around 9 years old. They both just had full dentals with a couple of extractions but are fine eating dry food, but they really love their soft food or some homemade goodies. Both of them are very happy,loving, get along with other dogs and are pretty laid back for the most part. They are both little dolls but just need an understanding person ... (Read More)to realize they can be a little fearful at first and need a little time to warm up, then look out, you are in for so many kisses and snuggles! For the person that is out of the house more than a few hours a day it would sure pass the time to have a buddy to pal around with while you are away. Lilyan and Sparky love to snuggle in their little bed and would be fine left for a bit. Many of our younger dogs just cannot tolerate being left alone for more than a few ours at a time, but a sweet, laid back senior with a pal would be A-OK. Their adoption fee's are $125 each, or $225 together. Plus a FREE 'chihuahua starter kit' worth over $200!!! Please email Kristine at joysparrows@gmail.com (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 18-06-08-00100Kai Odee (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Kai Odee does look a little bit like a coyote! Well, if that coyote was about 8 pounds and had little stubby legs and a long body that is. Our little Kai is not as wild as a coyote, in fact he is downright lovable. He was taken to the shelter by his family and at first he thought it was a very scary place, who can blame him. At just 7 months old to leave everything he knows and end up somewhere new can scare even a seasoned old dog. But, he soon realized it was OK and in fact made tons of friends, the people at the shelter were lovable as well! Kai came to us to settle into a home foster situation and he is doing fantastic. At first he ... (Read More)was a little leery of the bigger dogs but after a couple hours he became one of the gang. Kai is a happy little guy, loves snuggles and playtime and his toys!! He would not leave the shelter without his most bestest toy-a big green Christmas light looking squeaky toy. How cute is that! We have set it aside for just him and he will take it along to his forever home. Kai will do well in an active home, no long hours alone for this little spunkster, another dog would be great and older children. Smaller kids may be a little scary for Kai. He is the sweetest, most adorable little guy-and he even smiles! His adoption fee is $299, please email Kristine at joysparrows@gmail.com. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 18-06-08-00019Sophia (female)

Chihuahua    Age: Young Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Sweet Sophia was relinquished by owner moving to a home with no pets allowed. She is 6 lbs, in good health, house-broken and pee pad trained. Recently spayed, shots, microchip. Although she loves her walks, she is a LAP dog. Barks appropriately at noises, and barks initially at strangers, but not particularly yappy. She's fearful and shy at first, but comes around if you let her do it at her own pace, as she did with her foster mom. She will be a wonderful companion dog for someone in a calm living situation, where she can let her devotion to you shine. Probably not with young children, who will not let her gradually adjust to them. We need ... (Read More)to visit the home before adoption, so Chicago area is preferred. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 18-05-18-00059Tater-adoption special (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Tater is just an all around great guy, he is more of a manly kind of lil' dude. He LOVES the outdoors, would be outside all day long if he could. Which, actually, we are all pretty much outside most of the day now that it is warm out!! Tater will play with the other dogs, he gets along with everyone. He does not feel the need to be alpha but rather goes with the flow. He is a little more independent than some dogs and is perfectly fine spending time with his people or is content sniffing around the yard on his own. Tater is the funniest guy, he will find one of the toys in the yard, throw it for himself and chase it. He does this over and ... (Read More)over and will just roll around with it just having a great time. He will play and sniff to his hearts content and then lay in the cool grass for a leisurely snooze. Tater is not a needy dog, he will come sit in your lap or be by your side to let you know he loves you, but then will be off doing his own thing again. He is about 3 years old and 15 pounds. His adoption fee is $225-now 10% off plus a free 'chihuahua starter kit' worth over $200!! Please email Kristine at joysparrows@gmail.com. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 18-05-13-00348Star (female)

Chihuahua    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Not Good with Cats 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Very special adopter (possible foster to adopt) needed for this little nugget, Star. We aren't going to sugar coat it- finding a home for this girl is going to be a long shot. She is only about 3 years old and weighs just under 5 lbs. She quite obviously had a very difficult start in life, which has left her with some serious baggage. She is fear aggressive and will bark and charge at new people and dogs. We have had her over a year and we are now just able to pet her on her terms and occasionally pick her up. She needs someone with a pure heart and patience who will commit to providing her a safe place and allow her to build trust on her ... (Read More)terms. She is food and toy possessive, as well. She is potty pad trained perfectly and when she is comfortable can be the sweetest, funniest little thing. She knows how to sit and takes treats gently. She loves playing with her stuffy toys and will throw them in the air to herself. She is very food motivated, so that is a huge plus in working with her. We started some clicker training, but would love to see someone who has the time to really work with her one on one. Do you know someone who would consider opening their home to little Star and restoring her faith in humans? Please contact us at info@perfectpooches.org for more information. She will not be placed in a home with kids. She has not bitten, but with her behavior she very likely would and could and she needs to be around only dog savvy adults. Application, reference checks, and home visit required. For more information on adopting, please email us at info@perfectpooches.org. 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 (age appropriate), fecal tested and/or dewormed, and microchipped. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 18-05-13-00334Ambrosia (female)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Ambrosia is an approximately 1.5-2 yr old chihuahua mix who weighs about 8 lbs. She is super active and agile - we think she might have been a monkey in her past life! Ever thought about doing agility training? She would be an amazing dog! She does well with her potty training and crate training, she is quiet in the home and loves playing with the other dogs in her foster home. As active as she is, she also just loves to cuddle up with you when you are watching tv or sleeping- she will be right by your side. In fact- she likes to follow you around wherever you go. She needs a family that understands she can be an escape artist and she ... (Read More)is fast, so we will be particular about her new home to ensure her safety. We have noticed that she can be a little possessive of her food around other dogs, so feeding in her crate is recommended. Ambrosia's adoption donation of $250 helps cover the cost of her care. 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. 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 (age appropriate), fecal tested and/or dewormed, and microchipped. (Less)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Oh I love this little guy!! We call him Tumbleweed,because he's just a little whisp of a thing,(7 lbs), with crazy hair blowin' in the wind that goes where ever it wants,and is longer in the front than in the back. He is such a unique little character with such a wonderful little personality for those of you that can appreciate a little quirkiness-in a good way! We cannot guarantee the breeds, but who cares, he is a little charmer once you get to know him! Such a cutie with a perfect patch over one eye and big soulful eyes to melt your heart. He can have the feistiness of a chihuahua,but is sooo cuddly once he gets to know you.Yes,he sleeps ... (Read More)with me,such a teddy bear. He gets along fair with other dogs,but does NOT want to share your attention with them and certainly not his food,so would be best as an only dog,and he does not like cats. He marked a bit in the house when we first got him,but has been a gentleman now with his manners.Tumbleweed is 7 yrs old, fully vetted and did just have a dental,no more bad breath!! He is he waiting for a home with lots of time to spend with him,and someone who would like a lap dog.If you are interested in tumbleweed,please email Karen at bser321@aol.com. his adoption fee is 225.

Rescue Me ID: 18-03-26-00350Todd (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Can you believe this handsome young fella was given up to a shelter by the one and only family he had ever known because they were moving? Not only that but they were OK with him being euthanized!! Thankfully the shelter works hard to get dogs and cats and other critters into an adoption floor or a rescue to help them fine their way to a loving family. We were more than happy to take this little goober in, he is such a happy boy and fit in so well with our little crew. Todd is about 4 years old and maybe 8-9 pounds. His family had him accustomed to eating table food so he is a bit hesitant to eat what we are serving our four footed guests. ... (Read More)But I cook for them also, who wants to eat boring kibble day after day? This week they had a stew of kale, broccoli, rice and mackerel. All healthy ingredients, and pretty cheap as well! Todd has loved running and playing with the other dogs and is thrilled to out enjoying the fresh air and exploring the yard. He has been very affectionate with us, seeks attention and is a little wiggle butt. BUT--we are told he does NOT like to be picked up. No problem, we do not pick him up. He acts like he wants to sit in our laps, but no rush here. We want him to feel totally comfortable before we go that far. That is a common mistake we see in visitors, so often they want to love on the dogs asap(of course!) but as much as you have the best of intentions that fearful dog that has been in a shelter or rescue situation does not quite understand that right away. Best to keep your hugging and face to face greeting for much further along in the relationship. Todd is very well mannered and appears totally housebroken. Naturally we take him out very frequently so he can get used to our doors, yard and schedule. He has been a delight but will need a family willing that understands this has all been confusing for him and he just needs some time to figure out who you are and what is going on. Todd's adoption fee is $225. Please email Kristine at joysparrows@gmail.com. (Less)

Chihuahua    Age: Senior

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

    Meet Libby! Libby is a 12 yr old, 5.7 lb, toothless chihuahua who is looking for her forever home. Libby is a sweet little lady whose favorite pastimes are burrowing under blankets and being pet. She does great with potty training- either pottying outside or on pee pads. She is quiet in the home, low key, and does well on a leash - so she would be a great candidate for condo living. Libby gets along with other dogs, both large and small, but she does like her personal space. Libby had surgery to remove some pre-cancerous mammary growths and has been given a clean bill of health, but she will need to be monitored for any new growths ... (Read More)in the future. When we got Libby she had not been using her rear right leg due to what our vet believes was an old soft tissue injury. We currently have her in physical therapy to help her regain use of her leg. Libby gets along with people very well, but due to her mobility situation we would like to see her placed in home without small children. We have not ever seen her around cats yet. Libby's adoption donation of $175 helps to cover the cost of her medical care, which included her vaccinations, heartworm testing, microchip, dental, spay, growth removals, biopsy and preliminary physical therapy. For more information on Libby contact us at info@perfectpooches.org. We prefer applicants live within a 1.5 hour driving distance from Romeoville, IL. Adoptions outside of that geographical radius may be considered on a case-by-case basis, but the adoption process usually takes longer to complete. We do not ship dogs and we do not do same day adoptions. Application, reference checks, and home visit required. 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 (age appropriate), fecal tested and/or dewormed, and microchipped. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-08-30-00491Dylan (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Young Puppy

Health: Vaccinations Current 

    Looking for a sweet cuddly, playful little guy to love? Then Dylan might be the pup you're looking for. He gets along well with other dogs of all sizes although he is a little guy and won't do well with a large dominant dog, as he might get hurt. While he likes to play with other dogs, he loves being in his foster moms arms and receiving belly rubs!! He will need someone who has the time to continue his training. If you think he might be a good fit for you, visit our website to review the adoption process and complete an application. Www.alwaysroom4morepaws.com

Rescue Me ID: 17-04-11-00559Nellie (female)

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 ... (Read More)they were in poor condition and infected when we got her. Nellie's adoption donation of $200 helps cover the cost of her vetting and care. 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. 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.

Rescue Me ID: 16-12-14-00060Biscuit (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Biscuit is a chihuahua mix who is about 3 yrs old and weighs about 9 lbs. He is a special boy who takes time to warm up to new people and is very fearful in new situations, but once you gain his trust he will be your sidekick and shadow. He loves to give kisses and likes to cuddle on the couch - the bed is even better! We would like to place him in a home with a fenced in yard, but we are open to considering other living circumstances. Our vet believes that Biscuit was born with some brain damage, which causes his gait and coordination to be off. He has difficulty doing stairs, but he can navigate 1 and he has had some success going ... (Read More)up 4-5 stairs (not down, though). He also cannot jump on or off furniture. He doesn't like being away from his person and has been known to bark or cry when separated, but we have had some success at crate training while his foster mom is at work. He will need a very patient adopter who will spend the time to build his confidence, work on life skills, and expose him to new things in a positive manner. We are looking for a quiet, all-adult home for little Biscuit. His adoption donation of $250 helps cover the cost of his vetting and care. 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. 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 (age appropriate), fecal tested and/or dewormed, and microchipped. (Less)

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 Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet little Benjamin. He is about 8 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.

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