Rescue Me ID: 16-12-06-00396Marshmallow (female)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Senior

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

    Marshmallow is just as sweet and huggable as her name. She's a 9 year old chihuahua mix who arrived at ACL from a local impoundment facility where she was not doing well. Marshmallow had signs of neglect and years of untreated medical issues, and we just couldn't bring ourselves to leave her behind! Flash forward a few weeks, and Marshmallow is doing great! Most of her medical problems have completely resolved - now she's just a senior lady with their standard aches and pains. Marshmallow is happy in a foster home, where she's made it clear she's the boss of the other dogs in the house! She pays cats no mind at all, though. She's 100% ... (Read More)devoted to her humans, and she's never happier than when she's curled up next to you, or better yet, on you. Marshmallow can be persnickety when she wants to, specifically when she wants to nap and you want her to get a move on! For this reason, we think she'd be best in a quiet adult home that just wants a companion to snooze and snuggle with. Due to her old knees, Marshmallow isn't interested in walking long distances, but she gets around very well for potty breaks and yard time. If your home has some space by the fireplace, maybe Marshmallow can come stay and get toasty? Email Gabrielle at caninemanager@animalcareleague.org for more info! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-12-03-00190Gandalf (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet adoptable Gadalf (affectionately called Oliver in his foster home) - a young pup with an energetic personality contained in a small dog body! Gandalf is about 1.5 years old and we believe him to be a yorkie/chihuahua mix. Gandalf is a wonderful companion who loves to play tug of war with his toys and engage in never-ending games of fetch with the tennis balls. He loves to cuddle anywhere, but he would prefer cuddling in his owner's lap. He has a cute habit of gently 'pawing' you when he wants scratches on his head or any part of his body, and only wants to be loved. In the short time he has stayed with his foster parents, we've learned ... (Read More)he thrives on belly rubs and back scratches. Gandalf is potty trained and is obedient on a leash. However, it has been determined he is anxious around big dogs and will get easily excited or frightened when in close proximity to them. But this may be easily overcome as he becomes more social in a playful environment! He is not a big barker, and for the most part is pretty quiet, which can be a plus for those who live in apartments / condos. Gandalf knows commands such as 'no', 'come here' and 'stop', but could use a little more disciplined training. Overall he is a wonderful little dog who only wants love and is very eager to please his people. If you are interested, please email bowwowrevolution@gmail.com! (Less)

They have always been together and can always be found cuddled up together. I am really hoping they can find a new home together

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Senior

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

    SHORTY *SPECIAL NEEDS* AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION Shorty is a sad case. He is an 11 year old pomeranian mix that weighs about 6 lbs. Shorty needs to find a wonderful retirement home that will be able to manage his special needs. He came to us with a multitude of health issues. Back in 2011 he fell out of a moving car and broke his femur. It was repaired with a pin, but that pin has since broken. Unfortunately, the orthopedic specialist doesn't believe repairing it will be successful. Amputation is also not an option as his opposite rear leg has a bone weakening issue which would not support his body. He puts weight on and uses both legs, but he ... (Read More)is unstable and cannot walk long distances. He also came to us with a perineal hernia, which required an extensive surgery to both tack down his internal organs to his abdominal wall, but also repair the weakened muscle wall. In another unfortunate turn of events, Shorty has been experiencing some bladder leakage since the surgery. He sometimes will dribble during his sleep or on the way to take him outside. This may improve as he continues to heal from his surgery, but it may not improve. Shorty is a sweet boy who has the softest fur ever and enjoys being pet. He is a happy boy and gets along with other dogs. He would love a home with a lot of love and minimal physical activity. Shorty is looking for his angel that will look past his physical disabilities and into his heart. Do you think you could be the person to help change Shorty's life? 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.

Chihuahua    Age: Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet SALLY! She is a sweet mature gal (around 8 yrs old and about 4.75 lbs) who came to us in pretty rough condition. She is healing on the outside from the neglect she suffered (fleas, skin and ear infections, severely overgrown nails, muscle atrophy, hernia) and is ready to find her forever home! She can a minute to warm up to new people, but she is a happy, friendly girl. She would love to go to a home with another dog friend who is similar in size. She can be kind of dominant in her play style, but just is so happy to play with other dogs. Due to her age and size we think she would do best in a home without small children. She does ...

    Happy Joey is only 7 months old and already very well house-broken!! He paces between you and the door when needing to go outside, and takes care of business quickly. Wants to play with you, and chew toys, esp squeaky ones. Would love to sleep in your bed, but foster mom isn't allowing in case you don't, so he curls up in a regular dog bed for daytime naps, at night in a crate. Joey was found by a neighbor in an apt when family moved. He's in good health and eats dog food readily. Barks normally, no yapping or whining, or other neglect issues. He requires regular walking, or playing, or another dog or fenced yard as he is an active young ... (Read More)puppy. Needs more training with commands but responds well to 'no'. He is 8 lbs, walks ok on the leash, travels in a car in a carrier just fine, very sweet, affectionate, will melt your heart with his a darling face and wiggly excitement in greeting you! Like getting a first-time puppy but without having to paper train!! He is sheltered by Unity Pet Ministry/Pet Population at foster home... contact foster mom Deb for more photos and questions answered. (Less)

    Beaker is a 4 lb lanky, 6-7 yr old chihuahua, or as we lovingly call him a Mexican jumping bean! He was pretty impossible to get his picture taken as he is constantly on the move, so we apologize for the photo quality.

He gets along great with other dogs and wouldn't mind going to a home with a friend or two- as long as they are gentle with him. Due to his bottom jaw issue he is on a ...

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    We hope you like your sweets with a dash of tabasco, because that's Sammy in a nut shell! This absolutely adorable 5 year old Rat Terrier/Chihuahua is a perfect blend of sugar and spice. He arrived at ACL as a very frightened stray, but Sammy has set about winning all our hearts! He's an affectionate, low-key, social little guy who bonds tightly and loves to be cuddled. He'd really love a home with one or two people that want a constant companion to dote upon. Like many of his breed, Sammy tends to get feisty when he's frightened or unsure - it's hard to be a little squirt in a big world! For that reason, Sammy would do best in a home with ... (Read More)small dog experience. If you know what little chichis are like, you'll recognize Sammy's bluster for what it is - nerves. Once Sammy trusts you, he's your for life. He'll do best in an adult home, possibly with another small dog or even cat to hang out with. He'd do fine as an only dog, too, as long as you take him for walks, give him lots of cuddle time, and let him hide under a pillow - his favorite place to be! If you'd like to meet Sammy in person, please email Gabrielle at caninemanager@animalcareleague.org. (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)

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.
