Rescue Me ID: 16-07-21-00427Ringo (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Ringo is our resident quiet man, happy to be in the background while the more assertive 'superstars' take the lead. That doesn't make Ringo less adoptable - in fact, his calm, submissive, nervous demeanor make him even more charming! Ringo is a 4 year old terrier/chihuahua mix who likes an Australian Dingo shrunk down to chihuahua size. He came to ACL from a local animal control where he was terrified in his loud cage. After seeing the scared look on his face and contrasting it with his sweet temperament outside of the cage, we just couldn't leave him behind! Ringo is a nervous nelly, but he's coming out of his shell more and more every day! ... (Read More)He's going to do well in a low-key home that wants a companion to watch TV with and go for evening walks. He's a little too skittish for children under 10 - not because he'll go after them, but because they might go after him! Ringo is good with other small dogs and likely kitties, and he may do even better in a home with a confident dog to help guide him. Ringo is sure to relax and blossom in a quiet, patient home, and then he'll finally be ready to take the stage for a solo of his own! (Less)

    Meet FINLEY. This little man has a heart of gold and is the sweetest little guy. Finley, is 1 year old and came to us from a local shelter. While Finley was settling into foster, we learned he was severely sick-test after test... different medications.... hospital stays, we couldn't figure it out. After the many specialists, we learned that Finley was born with tracheal stenosis (his trachea is the size of a straw). When relaxed you would never see any signs but he can get wheezy if he over does it. Finley is so sweet, he loves to cuddle, is beyond gentle, great with kids and would make a great buddy for another dog. Finley loves ... (Read More)companionship and is completely house trained. We are in search for that special family to love Finley as we do. He has been through a lot in his short life but we now know that he can live a healthy life and deserves the best.

She's loves to walk, run, sunbathe, and roll around in grass. She would love a home with a yard. She travels well, we have taken her on several trips.

I'm having to giver her up because she bit my toddler just hard enough to leave marks. She has three minor health issues: a slight luxation of her patella on one leg, a slightly misaligned trachea which causes snoring and occasional snorts, and a food allergy that causes build up in her ears. Otherwise, she is completely healthy. I manage her ears with ear drops and cleaning. (Less)

Chihuahua    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
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.

    *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!

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.

    Sophie is a 7 year old female chihuahua who was surrendered to animal control because her owners could no longer care for her. She takes some time to warm up to new people, but she is a sweet girl once she is comfortable. She does ok with potty training, but due to a medical condition she does need to potty frequently. 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.

    [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.

    Mini and Chico are a pair of brother and sister, five-year-old, fawn and white Chihuahuas looking for a loving guardian. Mini and Chico were dropped off at Chicago Animal Care & Control when their family could no longer care for them. Lucky for them, they were rescued by Famous Fido's. Mini weighs seven pounds and Chico weighs nine pounds. This sibling pair love each other and need someone to give them patient and loving care. Chico is pretty friendly, but Mini needs a little more time to warm up. They are not at all nippy, barky or growly '| just a tad bit shy. They will both dance and do just about anything for a treat! Mini and ... (Read More)Chico are healthy, up-to-date on vaccines, spayed/neutered, micro-chipped, heartworm-tested and on monthly preventative.

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.
