Rescue Me ID: 18-01-21-00384Parker (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    SPECIAL NEEDS DOG LOOKING FOR SPECIAL HOME! Meet Parker! Parker is ~2yr old, 8 lb chihuahua. He came to us with a fractured back and shattered pelvis, which has left Parker paralyzed in his rear end. This injury has not slowed him down physically, though, and definitely has not broken his spirit. He is the happiest, most playful little guy around. We have ordered him a cart to be able to provide some mobility assistance. Parker needs a home that will be up to the challenge of caring for a rear paralyzed dog- the main challenge being potty habits. He doesn't really have bladder or bowl control, but we do think he could be taught to go on a ... (Read More)schedule with assistance. He is going to be starting with some swim therapy to see if that helps keep his muscle tone up and builds rear end strength. He loves other dogs and does great with people of all ages! He would even love a job maybe going to schools to teach kids about disabilities and overcoming adversity (3 Parker's adoption donation of $250 helps to cover his medical care, includinghis visit to the neurologist and his wheelchair. 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 with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered 

    We have enjoyed Lenny's company for THREE seasons now and we are certainly not complaining, we could not ask for a more polite guest. In fact with this bitter cold weather we put potty pads down in our heated garage so some of our frailer dogs did not have to go outside, well, everyone was welcome to the potty pads provided you had four legs that is. Lenny would not hear of it, he happily danced at the back door to get out attention and zipped outside to do his business, what a gentleman! He may be 7-8 years old but he is a very youthful dog that loves to run with his buddies and enjoys his outdoor time no matter the weather. His favorite ... (Read More)thing was the apples from the tree in late summer, they were an extra special treat--he loved them!! Lenny is a happy guy, never a complaint. He was nervous meeting new people for a moment but soon was all wags and wiggles. We are soooooo hoping we can find a wonderful family for Lenny-he is the little gem someone has been waiting for. We are guessing he is some sort of a Min Pin mix, he is about 20 pounds, a stout little fella. We have reduced his adoption fee to $99, and he will come home with loads of goodies and treats!

He is however quite high energy and playful when outside with someone he trusts,even though he's a bit older. Not senior but older adult.

 Abused/Neglected 

    Meet Wendy! Wendy is an 11 yr old chihuahua who weighs about 12 lbs. Wendy came to us from Southern Illinois and tested positive for heartworm. She has been through her treatment, but we need to wait 6 months for her negative test to complete her dental and spay. We are looking for a foster to adopt home that can provide her a quiet environment for her recovery. She is a timid, scared dog who we believe was mistreated in her previous life. She needs an adopter who will allow her to build her trust on her terms. Wendy doesn't have a mean bone in her body, but she can be fearful with handling. She has found a 'safe zone' in her current ... (Read More)foster and spends most of the time in her bed there. As time goes and she gets more comfortable she has slowly ventured out to explore, but it still hasn't been more than about 10 feet from her safe zone. She has gotten comfortable in the fenced yard and loves to run and explore out there. She gets along fine with other dogs, but prefers dogs who don't try to play with her as she gets scared. She is a loving, sweet dog who just needs that special person who will love and care for her unconditionally. Wendy's adoption fee of $200 helps cover the cost of her vet care and heartworm treatment. 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.

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

    Meet Paris! She is one of 4 puppies that came to us with their mother, Tina. Tina had eclampsia and had to have an emergency C-section to deliver the pups. We were told the dad was a chihuahua/dachshund mix. Paris is a typical puppy who will require structure and boundaries in order to learn manners, llike potty training. She is the second smallest in the litter. She is very confident around her siblings, but she is more of a follower than a leader. She would do great with another dog in the home to be the leader. Due to her small size we would prefer she go to a home without young children. Paris' adoption fee of $350 helps cover the ... (Read More)cost of her vetting. Paris has an appointment to be spayed at our vet in Bolingbrook, which the adopter will need to comply with. We also require that Paris attend a beginning puppy class at the location of your choice that practices positive reinforcement training. A training deposit in the amount of $200 must be provided in a check form until proof of training has been completed. Upon completion, the check can be destroyed or returned. 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: Senior

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

    Potato is a senior girl who is very mellow and just wants to be in the lap/arms of her human. Potato can be picky on when she's picked up and by who - or who handles her therefore, Potato will do best in an adult only home where her quirks can be recognized and worked with. Overall, Potato has been great with everyone, dogs included but she's a very low-key girl who will blossom in a home with few visitors and a calm environment. Potato has been with us in rescue for several years now.

Chihuahua    Age: Adult

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

    Meet Adoptable Alfie, an 8 year old chihuahua! Alfie is an amazing little dude who came to us as one of 9 dogs that we took out of a hoarding situation of almost 30 dogs. Alfie was sad and in rough shape. With TLC from his loving foster over the past 3 months, Alfie has blossomed into a happier and more comfortable little chihuahua. Alfie is super chill, a total love bug and is crate trained and house trained. He loves to be by his person and he loves to snuggle. While in our care, Alfie has had a full medical work up including a dental with extractions. We also learned that Alfie has heart disease that was not being treated, and he is ... (Read More)in the beginning stages of heart disease. He has a slightly enlarged heart which causes his heart to beat too fast. As a result, Alfie is on two medications- one is to slow his heartbeat so as to not cause stress on his heart, and the other is a water pill that keeps his lungs clear from fluid (which is common with heart disease). Alfie has been doing just fine in his foster with these medications and it doesn't slow him down! The medication is rather inexpensive, we are able to fill several months at a time for around $20 and mail order would be even cheaper. Alfie is able to live a normal life with medication, and he deserves the very best! To meet Alfie email bowwowrevolution@gmail.com for an application. (Less)

Chihuahua    Age: Young Adult

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

    Meet Qbert! He is a 2 year old male chihuahua who weighs just under 5 lbs who is in search for a special adopter to care for him. He was surrendered to animal control by his previous owners because they were moving and couldn't take him. We believe he may have been a survivor of distemper, which has left him with some neurological deficits. He gait and coordination is abnormal and we think he has limited vision. Despite that he is sweet, responsive to touch and he tries to run and play. He can get overstimulated with too much touch and can become overwhelmed. For this reason we think he should be adopted to an all adult household. He ... (Read More)has the softest plush fur and he coexists with other dogs and does fine with cats. Are you that special person who is willing to care for a special needs dog? Qbert's adoption donation is $150. For more information, please contact 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: 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.
