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

    Lotus Chihuahua/Feist Mix 20 lbs. Adult Lotus is a sweet and loving little girl! Gets along well with other dogs. Safe Haven Dog Rescue pays for all vetting (done locally in Geneva, South Elgin, Wheaton, Naperville and Elmhurst) and provides you with supplies while you foster. For more information and a foster home application, please email erin.safehavendogs@gmail.com She is also available for our Foster to Adopt program. This program allows you to be the family that greets her when she arrives in Illinois. Foster to Adopt families have the first option to adopt if you determine this is the pup right for you! While you foster, we ... (Read More)pay all expenses from vetting, to food and we provide a crate, leash, collars, and toys. Your family provides love (something he desperately needs!) and a safe place to lay her head until she finds her forever home. We also require that you have the ability to take the pup to routine veterinary visits at our participating vets. These vets are located in Wheaton, Naperville, Geneva, South Elgin, and Elmhurst. Spay/Neuters are done in Geneva, South Elgin, and North Aurora. Fostering is the most life giving thing you can do for a dog or puppy! It is a very rewarding experience that will make a huge impact on their life. By becoming a foster you are saving 2 lives - the animal you bring into your home while he or she waits to be adopted, and the animal who gets to take your foster's place in the shelter. Please email erin.safehavendogs@gmail.com for a foster application or additional details. Please note that the breeds and sizes posted in this biography are educated best guesses and are not guaranteed. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-02-13-00496Max (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Adult

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

    [Read About Natural Seizure Care] Max is a lovable and cuddly 12 pound Chihuahua. He was rescued off the streets as a tiny puppy in Denver, Colorado, and has lived happily with his family for 6 years. As much as it breaks our hearts, we need to re-home him because he has not been able to adjust to life with our toddlers. They hug and squeeze him, and though the tries the best he can, sometimes he'll nip when he can't get away. We love him but know he'd be happier in a family without small children. Warm sun spots and cozy blankets are a few of his favorite things. He could spend all day in your lap if you'd let him.

    This handsome and debonair fellow has been with us for a few months now, what can I say, he likes it here! Well, that is not the full story, although he seems perfectly happy the perfect person has just not come across this wonderful boy. Barry is a chihuahua, maybe rat terrier mix?

Rescue Me ID: 16-12-31-00042Emma (female)

Chihuahua    Age: Young Adult

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

    Introducing EMMA! Emma is guessed to be about 3-4 yrs old, weighs about 7.5 lbs, and is a beautiful chocolate brown color. She is an active wiggle butt who is a friendly girl. She came to us with another dog, Esther, but we have found that she is slow to warm up to new dogs. We do not feel that the 2 are bonded, and in fact, think that Emma is a little too active for little old, Esther. Emma does try to play and we think ideally would find a home with another active dog, but there would need to be a very slow and controlled introduction. If adopted as an only dog she would do best with a family who is home frequently, as she does tend to ... (Read More)prefer company. Emma is doing well with her housetraining and will use pee pads. She would love a family who would be willing to possibly take her to some training classes to teach her some manners. Emma's adoption donation of $275 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. All dogs are spayed/neutered, current on vaccines, heartworm tested (age appropriate), fecal tested and/or dewormed, and microchipped. (Less)

Chihuahua    Age: Senior

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

    Meet ESTHER! She is guessed to be about 12 yrs old and weighs approximately 5 lbs. She is doing fairly well with her housetraining and will use pee pads, but occasionally misses the mark. She gets along fine with other dogs and came to us with Emma, but due to Emma's energy level we do not feel they need to be adopted together. Esther is still very active and has a lot of life left to her. We would love to find her a forever home where she can live out her golden years. Esther has heart murmur, but we have taken her to a cardiologist for a full workup and it was determined that she does not need medication at this point. The cardiologist has ... (Read More)recommended that her heart get xrayed on an annual basis and he will review the films for no charge to keep an eye on her heart. Esther's adoption donation of $200 helps to 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.

    Quick as a wink, you're in love...with Wink! This tiny tot is just the most adorable thing you've ever seen - the perfect mix of scruff, soft, and cute! Wink is a two year old Toy Fox Terrier/Chihuahua mix who came to ACL from a local animal control facility. Wink is goofy and affectionate - he'll dance for your attention, and he wants nothing more than to perch on you and watch the world go by. Wink is a hyperaffectionate little dog who can be clingy at first, but with a patient home, he'll get more confident and less needy. Wink is fine with other small dogs and cats that respect his space, but he's a little overwhelmed by big dogs. He ... (Read More)needs an experienced small dog owner who has some patience and previous knowledge of working with small dogs through some transitional stress and anxiety. Because of all the instability in his life so far, he'll need some training, so Wink's adopters are required to take a training class upon adoption. He'd do best in homes with kids 14 and up. What he really wants is to your little prince - the first face you see in the morning and the last face you see at night. Plan to catch 40 winks with Wink! (Less)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Not Good with Cats 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    *MUST LIVE IN 50-MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (A SUBURB OF CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT, NO EXCEPTIONS!* Greetings! My name is Perla, and if you are looking for a devoted, sweet-as-sugar little friend to cuddle, I am a 5-year-old Chihuahua who is available for adoption through Fetching Tails Foundation! I am 8 pounds of love, and I have gorgeous caramel-colored fur. My adorable ears always stand at attention because I like to listen to every word my favorite people say, and I love to look at you with my big, beautiful eyes. Fetching Tails Foundation rescued me after my previous owners had to give me away. I have been having lots of ... (Read More)fun in my foster home since my rescue: some of my favorite activities include hanging out with my doggie friends (foster mommy has a couple other little chihuahuas like me!), running around in the yard and throughout the house, and playing with soft, squeaky toys. I get along fabulously with other dogs and think it would be fun to have another furry friend or two in my forever home, however my friends should be of the doggie variety and not kitties. I am a little shy when meeting new humans for the first time, but once I come out of my shell I am the most loving little girl you will ever meet: I love to snuggle, and shower you with my affection. I have pretty great house manners, too: I have been working on my potty training and crate training since my foster mommy saved me. I am good about using a pee pad now that I know what it is for, and will go potty outside when we go out to do our business. With consistency and a routine I will have a perfect record in no time. If you have to leave the house for a few hours to go to work or run errands, I will be content to make myself a perfect little chihuahua nest out of my blankets and doggie bed so I can curl up for a nap. I love to be warm and comfortable, so I hope my forever family has lots of blankets for me to call my own! If a sweet, lovable, little snuggler sounds like the doggie friend for you, please get in touch with my friends from Fetching Tails Foundation and let them know Perla is the darling girl for whom you have been searching! XOXO, Perla If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org/adopt or if any questions please email us! Adoption Requirements: *Be at least 21 years of age *Have the knowledge and agreement of all adults living in the household *Have approval from owner of residence (written in lease) *Have a valid ID with current address *Be approved as a suitable adoptive home by Fetching Tails Foundation *Be prepared to make a lifetime commitment *Lives in 50 mile radius of Itasca within the Illinois border Adoption Fees: Senior dog - 8 years and up, $75 Adult or young dog - 6 months to 7 years, $250 Puppies - under 6 months, $350 (Less)

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Fearful/Anxious 

    Biscuit is a chihuahua mix who is about 2 yrs old and weighs about 9 lbs. He is a special boy who takes some time to warm up to new people, but once you gain his trust he will be your sidekick and shadow. He loves to give kisses and likes to be held as well as cuddling on the couch and the bed is even better. Walking him on a leash is like trying to walk a fish out of water, but his foster continues to work on this with him. For this reason, we would like to place him in a home with a fenced in yard. His housetraining is a work in progress. He will need a very patient family who will spend the time to build his confidence, work on ...

Health: Neutered, Needs Vaccinations 

    Driver and Daizee had been with my family until I went through a separation and had to leave the house me and my kids were in and I couldn't bring them with us. They had been living with another family for the past 2yearsuntil I received a phone call last night saying they couldn't keep them anymore. I am still not in a place that allows animals so I am desperately trying to find them a new home. They are 5 years old and have been around kids their whole lives. 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: Puppy

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    *MUST LIVE IN 50-MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (A SUBURB OF CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT, NO EXCEPTIONS!* Hello! My name is Khloe, and I am a shy, sensitive little girl looking for a forever home with an extra special family! I am a 1.5-year-old Chihuahua mix and I am available for adoption through Fetching Tails Foundation. I am 7 itty-bitty pounds, and I have gorgeous toffee-colored fur. I have tall legs like a dancer, and a long tail my foster mommy lovingly calls my antenna. My big, beautiful ears are always standing straight up in the air because I like to listen carefully to my people when they tell me how much they love me. ... (Read More) Fetching Tails Foundation saved me from Chicago Animal Care & Control, where my previous owner left me behind. I waited at the loud, busy shelter for weeks and was very scared; thankfully my human friends from Fetching Tails came to save me and I have been decompressing and settling into my foster home ever since. I am shy with new people, but once I know that you will love me I am very loving right back. I am hoping for a quiet forever home without children and with patient humans who will help me continue to come out of my shell and blossom into the happy, confident girl I know I am meant to be. Foster mommy has two other very playful chihuahuas and though I am shy with them, too, I am learning a lot from them. I think I would be happiest with another small, calm dog or as your one-and-only canine companion so I can have all your devoted attention! I am a smart girl and I am learning more about the world every day. I am potty trained and also crate trained. In fact, I actually really like my crate because I feel safe there. I would prefer a forever home where people are home more often than not because once I trust you I want to be near you as much as possible. Foster mommy doesn't think I have ever been walked on a leash before, so I am slowly learning how to go for walks on a harness. Fetching Tails encourages all adopters to sign up for training classes with their new pups, and I think that would be a good experience for me to learn more about how the world works, and to also work on my confidence and socialization. I didn't have the best life before Fetching Tails saved me, and more than anything I just want loving, patient humans who will give me the chance to be the happy girl I've always wanted to be. If you think you are the special person to give me the life I have always dreamed, please get in touch with my friends at Fetching Tails Foundation soon. I am ready and waiting for my happily ever after! Love, Khloe If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org or if any questions please email us! Adoption Requirements: *Be at least 21 years of age *Have the knowledge and agreement of all adults living in the household *Have approval from owner of residence (written in lease) *Have a valid ID with current address *Be approved as a suitable adoptive home by Fetching Tails Foundation *Be prepared to make a lifetime commitment *Lives in 50 mile radius of Itasca within the Illinois border Adoption Fees: Senior dog - 8 years and up, $75 Adult or young dog - 6 months to 7 years, $250 Puppies - under 6 months, $350 (Less)

    Are you always busy? Never any free time? Chewey can relate! This one year old Dachshund/Chihuahua mix is one busy bee. He's always got something to do - he's sniffing over there, cuddling over here, walking around that way, and always on the go go go! Chewey is a confident, well-adjusted little man who knows that people are great. He came to ACL as a stray, and we're happy to help him find his forever family. Chewey makes the job easy by being such an affectionate, playful, intelligent boy! He's a little too mouthy and alert for young kids, and he'd do best with experienced adult dog owners who are interested in spending a bit of time on ... (Read More)training and bonding with him. He's good with other small dogs who match his vibe, and he'd adore a family who has some experience with dogs that have a bit of extra ZIP! Chewey has a strong prey drive, so he's not a good choice for a home with cats or small animals. Chewey loves to go for walks and explore, so an adventurous, active home is a must for this little detective! (Less)

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.
