Chihuahua    Age: Young Adult

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

    Picasso, yes he is truly a unique fellow, a work of art in his own right. He is a tiny guy, only about 7 pounds and 4 years old, but what he lacks in stature he makes up for in personality! He can be your typical chihuahua when meeting new people, but once he gets to know you he is the biggest snuggler and would love to be by your side 24/7. Picasso came to us very thin and fearful, so many dogs do not do well in large shelters, especially such a tiny dog it is so overwhelming. we were happy to have this little fella, and within a day he warmed up and enjoyed a warm lap(and to be carried around!) Picasso is housebroken, he loves to be ... (Read More)outside on these warm days and will go to the door to be let out, of course he would have to relearn all of that in his new home. We are looking for a chihuahua savvy person(he may not be overly friendly upon first greeting), and a home with older kids. His adoption fee is $150. (Less)

Daizee lives with a terrific foster family with 4 active kids that enjoy having friends and family over and she is more than happy to join the party. She will do well in a variety of home situations, but of course she would like someone to spend tons of time with her-she will be a wonderful little companion. She is just 5 years old and about 9 pounds or so. She had her cherry eye repaired previously, but it is not uncommon for it to comeback. a simple ...

Chihuahua    Age: Senior

Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Obese, Aggressive 

    My dad recently passed away. Paco was his only companion. He loved to sit on my dad's lap and would crawl up his should to give him a kiss. We have two laborador retrievers and can not take on anther dog. Unfortunately, mostly due to my dad's age he did not properly house train him. I live in Lisle, IL but Paco is still at my dad's home in Prarie, Wisconson. My sister has been staying at my dad's house but will be flying home on Sunday. We can't leave Paco in my dad's home. It is critical to us that we find a home for Paco. It would do my dad a disservice if we had to have him euthanized.

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

    *MUST LIVE IN 50 MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (SUBURBAN CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT* Greetings! If you are looking for a tiny dog with a big heart and loving personality, I'm your girl! My name is Blanca and I am a 6-year-old blonde and white Chihuahua mix available for adoption through Fetching Tails Foundation. I am six precious pounds of pure love and devotion. I love to cuddle anywhere and everywhere. Show me a lap and I'm all yours! Want to cuddle in bed with me? Let's do it! Need a snuggle buddy when watching scary movies on the TV? I'll be there for you! My foster mom says I'm just as sweet as they come, and I definitely ... (Read More)agree with her! What can I say? I love being near my people! I am a very well-behaved girl, as well. I am fully potty trained, crate trained, and I walk well on a leash. I currently live with other small dogs and cats, and I get along fine with all of them! I mostly keep to myself: I ignore the cats, and I will occasionally play and cuddle with my doggie friends on our fancy heated dog bed. So if you already have other pets I will fit in great, but I would also be content as your one and only furry companion. I am also a little comedian, so if you want a friend who will keep you laughing I'm a good pick! My foster mom says I am funniest when I am trying to jump on the couch. I am kind of a klutz and usually wipe out on my first try. I always pause to look around and make sure no one sees my stumble before trying again. Foster mom is a good sport and pretends that she didn't see it, which is nice! As much as I love my foster home, I am really looking forward to finding my forever family. I am not picky about my forever home, all that really matters to me is having a family who will love me as much as I love them! So if I sound like I could be a good fit in your family, please contact my friends at Fetching Tails Foundation soon! I can't wait to meet you and see how comfy your lap is! Kisses and tail wags, Blanca If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org or email us!

Rescue Me ID: 16-06-02-00411Dumbo (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    *MUST LIVE IN 50 MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (SUBURBAN CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT* Hi there! Looking for a companion to add spice to life? Here I am! I'm Dumbo, about 12 pounds of cuddles and fun available for adoption through Fetching Tails Foundation. Have you seen my picture? I'm a handsome pup (if I may say so), with my hazel eyes, fawn and white coat, and a finely tapered snout. And let's talk about my ears: I think they're one of my most endearing features, don't you? As for my breed, well, that's hard to say. Perhaps a Chihuahua mix? My foster mom says my breed is 'lovable,' which is what really matters, right?! I was ... (Read More)found as a stray and landed in the local shelter until my human friends at Fetching Tails could bail me out. I'm so thankful they did, because I scored a great foster home where I met my two fur foster siblings: A blind senior dog, plus my best bud%BD'%BD|wait for it%BD'%BD|a cat! I like everyone I've met so far, including kids. I'm a world-class cuddler, especially at bedtime when I try to edge out the cat for the spot closest to my foster mom. I'll also give you kisses and nuzzle your neck when we're sitting on the couch. Foster mom says I'm a real sweetie! I love to play, and I've recently made friends with the 50-pound dog across the hall. I've been described as a pretty active and curious little guy, and sometimes I can be a little energetic on my walks. Rest assured, though, that I do know how to walk nicely on a leash. I'm making good use of the time while I wait for my forever family to hone my skills; I want to be able to impress you with my talent. I know the basics like 'sit' and 'down,' but those are boring. I'm currently expanding my skill set to include 'high five' and 'shake!' When I think about what I'd like for my forever home, I'd really prefer for my humans to be home a lot. I'm too much of a people person to be left alone often. My foster mom lives in a townhouse, which is nice. I like to notify her of all impending 'dangers' (like someone walking in the hall) so a condo or apartment might not be the best place for me. Foster mom is trying to teach me to use my inside voice, but I haven't gotten the hang of that yet. Overall, though, I'm pretty adaptable to different situations and people. Some of my favorite activities include eating tasty treats my foster mom gives me, like sliced turkey. I have to confess that she spoils me a little with the marrow bones she gets from the butcher. Yum! I like to explore pretty much any object I find, and I can be a little mischievous - I steal foster mom's socks and slippers. Gotta keep her on her toes, right? I do make her laugh though, especially when I'm playing with the cat. It's pretty entertaining to watch us goof around. One time, while I was taking a drink of water, the cat decided to dunk my head in the water bowl. Sometimes we get into boxing matches with our front paws, then I go into a play bow just to make sure kitty knows it's all in fun. Cute, cuddly, curious and compellingly entertaining. What more could you want? If you think I'm the companion you've been looking for, get in touch with my Fetching friends. I'm waiting for you to take me home!

Chihuahua    Age: Puppy

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

    Little Trinket is a sweet, spunky, affectionate lady looking for a warm, loving home. Trinket is a one year old long-haired chihuahua mix who was brought to ACL when a couple of Good Samaritans found her running in the middle of a busy street. She recovered well from that trauma, and she's been happily living in a foster home since. Her foster mom reports that when she falls in love you, it's for life! Trinket loves to be held, cuddled, and babied, but she's also sassy enough to hang with the big dogs. Trinket loves dogs big and small, and she'd do very well in a home with them or likely even cats. Like many chihuahuas, she is hesitant with ... (Read More)strangers and can become protective of her family and space. She's more bark than bite, however, and once you're her friend, you're her friend - forget about it! Trinket is good with respectful children 8 and up, and she'd really love a home with someone who was around regularly to spend time with her and treat her like a princess! If you're interested in meeting Trinket, please email Gabrielle at caninemanager@animalcareleague.org to set up an appointment! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-01-30-00080Scooter (male)

Chihuahua    Age: Young Adult

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

    Meet Scooter! He is a chihuahua who is guessed to be 2-3 yrs old and he weighs 7 lbs. Scooter likes playing with the other dogs in his foster home. Scooter is a friendly, spirited little dude who is very talkative (he likes to mumble and grumble) - and rightfully so, since he has a story to tell! Scooter has been with us since April 2015, but is just now available for adoption due to some unforeseen rough patches. Scooter not only had canine influenza and recovered, but back in June he suddenly became paralyzed in his rear end. Through cage rest, supplements, and physical therapy (thanks to Bialy's Wellness Foundation) he regained use ... (Read More)of his back legs. He can navigate a step, can go up ramps, and can get around quite well. The vet believes that Scooter has an old back injury that caused the paralysis. Scooter will need a home that will maintain his safety, continue to do his home exercises to keep his strength up, keep his weight down and be willing be his advocate to keep him out of situations that will be risky to his back (jumping, rough play, etc). It will be a lifelong consideration that will need to be managed. Here is a video of one of Scooter's exercise sessions. https://www.facebook.com/PerfectPoochesAdoptionAgency/videos/936205016454233/ Scooter can be a marker (probably due to the fact that he hadn't been neutered) so he sometimes wears a belly band in the house, but we are hopeful that this behavior will subside now that he has been fixed. Also, due to his back injury he sometimes urinates on his tummy and needs to be wiped with a wet wipe after his trips outside. Scooter's adoption fee of $250 goes to help cover the cost of his vetting and rehab. 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)

    Stitch is a snuggly, sweet, adorable, loving, dog and people-friendly, seven-pound, five-year-old, male fawn and white, one-eyed, Min Pin/Chihuahua-mix looking for a loving guardian. He is a sweet and lovable little guy who is full of kisses and tail wags. He dances on his hind legs for treats and is housebroken and well-behaved in the home. In fact, his foster mom doesn't feel the need to crate him at all and says he's fine when left home alone. He co-mingles just fine with other dogs in his foster home. Stitch knows the commands 'sit,' 'let's eat,' 'outside' and his name. He walks nicely on leash and loves daily walks! He enjoys being ... (Read More)in your arms, cuddled and kissed. He is wonderful with people - however, he does get frightened if you startle him - since he only has one eye. He is also protective of those he loves, and resource guards select toys and food; positive reinforcement training would benefit him greatly to help him succeed in his new home. For that reason, he is recommended for homes without small children. He is currently fostered in Rogers Park where he lives with two other Chihuahua mixes. Stitch usually sleeps in bed with his foster mom, but sometimes opts for the couch. Stitch is very healthy, de-wormed, neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped, and heartworm-tested.

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 8 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 5.1 bs- which is HUGE! The vet believes her rear legs were not formed ... (Read More)properly from birth, which causes her some challenges when walking, but she has had one of her knees repaired. 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)

She gets along with other dogs and is quiet in the home. She has very long, thin legs and her new owners should be careful with her jumping off of furniture and such to prevent any injuries. Due to her thin frame we would not recommend her with small children. She does not like to be picked up- we think due to trust ... (Read More)issues, but we are working with her on this. Sophie's adoption fee of $175 goes towards the cost of her vetting. 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)

Rescue Me ID: 15-01-26-00058Lupe (female)

Chihuahua    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
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 and 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, but she currently sees a veterinary chiropractor for monthly treatments. She is not 'normal' in her behavior and probably never will be, but she is still lovable. She has had seizures since she has been in our care, but if she is fed on a regular schedule and sees her chiro once a month she does wonderfully. She is on a raw diet and we ... (Read More)recommend that her new adopters continue her on this diet. 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 sometimes 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 $125 goes towards the cost of her medical care and vetting. 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)

Jordan landed at Chicago Animal Care and Control when his family could no longer care for him. He was taken in by Famous Fido's Rescue. All four of Jordan's short squat legs are a little bowed, but he gets around just fine '| In fact, he loves to go for walks. Jordan is great with other dogs. Jordan is a loyal and loving fellow who is crate-trained and does well with housebreaking once he's on a schedule. He'll come over and sit in your lap '| or if you're out walking him in the cold, he allows ... (Read More)you to pick him up and carry him inside. But, things tend to be on Jordan's terms. He dislikes it when you reach into his crate '| but he's fabulous if he comes out on his own. So, Jordan is looking for a patient dog-lover who will wait for him to mellow out in their home. His love and loyalty will come in time '| it just can't be rushed. Jordan is neutered, micro-chipped, up-to-date on vaccines, de-wormed, and heartworm-tested.

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.
