Duff needs to learn to deal with things he doesn't like - his instinct now is to boss you around when something doesn't go his way.

    I am a little timid, but will let you loop me without issue. I will hop right out and am happy to be outside. I keep my distance and am in need of a bath. If you go slow, you can touch me all over and pick me up. I am wary of fast movements. I like the jerky treats over the duck balls. I take treats gently, but don't seem to know any commands. I wasn't interested in toys. Has done well in the little parties. Met a bigger dog and just didn't want to be around it so I kept walking away.

    Kix is a 3 year old, 12 pound little guy looking for a dog savvy home. We are guessing he is chi/manchester terrier, but whatever breeds he may be he is a unique boy. He was a bit feisty at the shelter(like so many dogs) and needed to come into rescue to unwind a bit. Kix has the most gorgeous coat with mahogany undertones and such an intense, striking expression. He may act all big and tough on occasion but is a mush at heart. Our adult son was home for a visit and met Kix and was immediately drawn to him and they became best pals. Kix did a little grumbling but my son ignored him, picked him up and Kix fell asleep on his lap--too cute! ...

Rescue Me ID: 17-06-21-00396Babe (female)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    *MUST LIVE IN 50-MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (A SUBURB OF CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT, NO EXCEPTIONS!* Are you looking for a loyal, loving, pint-size little lady with whom to spend your days and nights cuddling and enjoying our favorite binge-worthy shows on Netflix? Look no further! My name is Babe; I am a 4-year-old Chihuahua mix and I am looking for a forever home through Fetching Tails Foundation. I am 14 pounds and if I could be so humble, must say that I am a very beautiful lady! I have toffee-colored fur and big brown eyes that I use to look at you with adoration. My big silly ears are pretty much always standing up because ... (Read More)I love to hear you tell me that I am a good girl. And best of all? My personality sparkles as much as my physical appearance! My friends from Fetching Tails Foundation saved me from Chicago Animal Care & Control, where my previous owners brought me because they could no longer keep me. I am so glad they saved me, too, because I love my foster home and am having so much fun snuggling and cuddling to my heart's content! Did I mention yet that I love to snuggle? It is my favorite thing to do in the whole, wide world so I hope my forever family loves to have a little shadow that will follow them around and curl up next to them as soon as we sit down together! I have short spurts of energy and enjoy burning it by going for walkies around the neighborhood or playing with my favorite toys. But mostly, I just want to be near my humans while we watch tv or read a good book together. Once I am bonded to my people, I am very loyal and and even a little protective so I sometimes bark or growl at new people who approach them until I know they are friends, too. Telling me it is ok and reassuring me that you aren't in trouble will calm me down and I am a total lovebug once I know you. I live with another small dog and while we co-exist and get along fine, I don't go out of my way to play with her or anything so I would be fine in a forever home with another laid-back dog or even as your only furry friend since I care more about human attention anyway! I have great manners and am a wonderfully polite roommate, too! I am completely potty trained and do my business on my walkies every day.

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

    Every dog is a special snowflake, and our Enid is one of the most special of all! This 12 year old chihuahua has had a tough life - she arrived at ACL a couple of months ago as a terribly emaciated stray dog who had signs of ongoing neglect. Enid had hair loss all over her body and the worst dental disease we'd ever seen. But did that stop Enid? No way! From the first moment she was here, Enid set about winning over everyone with her spunky, affectionate, bossy personality. She soaked up love like a sponge! Well, flash forward a few months, and Enid is a brand new woman! She's had a full dental cleaning, and her mouth must feel better than ... (Read More)it has in years! She still has her two 'mammoth tusks' - her bottom two canines protrude from her mouth, giving her an adorable walrus look. She's put on weight, her hair has grown back, and most importantly, Enid's heart is bigger and more open than it ever has been before! She's ready to find a forever family. Enid is a wonderful companion - she's a total lap dog, and she just wants to spend every waking minute with you! Her dream is to find a low-key adult family that wants a cuddle partner for forever. Enid loves to go for walks, too, and she looks great in sweaters! She's doing just great in foster care with feline and canine companions, but she can be bossy and jealous of other dogs, so she'd do best with a canine friend who doesn't mind living with a lady who speaks her mind!

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)

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.

Though associated with Mexico, Chihuahuas have origins in China. Chihuahuas were sacred animals to pre-Columbian Native Americans.
