Rescue Me ID: 16-01-30-00080Scooter (male)

Chihuahua    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Scooter! He is a chihuahua who is guessed to be 2-3 yrs old and he weighs 7 lbs. Scooter likes playing with the other dogs in his foster home. Scooter is a friendly, spirited little dude who is very talkative (he likes to mumble and grumble) - and rightfully so, since he has a story to tell! Scooter has been with us since April 2015, but is just now available for adoption due to some unforeseen rough patches. Scooter not only had canine influenza and recovered, but back in June he suddenly became paralyzed in his rear end. Through cage rest, supplements, and physical therapy (thanks to Bialy's Wellness Foundation) he regained use ... (Read More)of his back legs. He can navigate a step, can go up ramps, and can get around quite well. The vet believes that Scooter has an old back injury that caused the paralysis. Scooter will need a home that will maintain his safety, continue to do his home exercises to keep his strength up, keep his weight down and be willing be his advocate to keep him out of situations that will be risky to his back (jumping, rough play, etc). It will be a lifelong consideration that will need to be managed. Here is a video of one of Scooter's exercise sessions. https://www.facebook.com/PerfectPoochesAdoptionAgency/videos/936205016454233/ Scooter can be a marker (probably due to the fact that he hadn't been neutered) so he sometimes wears a belly band in the house, but we are hopeful that this behavior will subside now that he has been fixed. Also, due to his back injury he sometimes urinates on his tummy and needs to be wiped with a wet wipe after his trips outside. Scooter's adoption fee of $250 goes to help cover the cost of his vetting and rehab. 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)

    Adler is a sweet, 3 year old chihuahua mix that came to ACL from another high volume shelter. Adler is full of love and spunk! He can be a tiny bit shy at first because of his size, but if you show him your love he will receive it. Since Adler can be a little skiddish, we suggest he goes to a home with children 8 and up. Adler loves other dogs and possibly cats as well! Adler is ready to find his forever home, so come by ACL and meet him today!

    Rocko has been at PAWS in Anna, IL since March 2014!! He's now almost 10 years old. He doesn't belong in a cage, sitting in a shelter.

Please consider opening up your home to this sweet boy. Disregard location below- in Anna, IL. S. Grady

    Little Princess is a sweet girl and loves everybody. She is good with gentle cats and dogs, and lives with both in her foster home. Princess would be best with children 8 and older that can learn to pick her up securely. An adult home would be good also. Princess is housetrained and has the best indoor manners. She goes outside potty...and when 'done' comes right back in. She is 6.6#'s at 8 yrs, born approx. 12-09-2007. She has a heart Murmur so H.E.L.P. had a cardiograph done and she passed with no issues. All results are printed to be given to her adopter. Princess has had a full dental with teeth pulled and is fresh breathed and ready to ... (Read More)give kisses to her new 4-Ever family! Because she is tiny, she will need to be closely watched when outside. She is a confident girl who is nothing but the sweetest little Chi. Princess loves to burrow under her covers to sleep...in a crate or sleeping next to her human. If you are looking for a snuggle-baby companion, Princess is looking for the same from her humans!

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Sanchez is a super cute 1-year-old and 10-pound Chihuahua mix that was dumped at the end of town by his owner. Thank goodness a friend of an IDR+ volunteer found him. He is now safe in our program. We think he may be mixed with a Terrier or a Dachshund, as he is bigger and longer than a standard Chihuahua. His foster mom can't stop gushing about how awesome Sanchez is: 'He did wonderfully at the vet and is really good with meeting new people! He is currently mingled with my Chihuahua and he is just fine with the bigger Plott Hound that comes for doggie day care. He is a good boy and never complains, eats all his food, perfect in the crate, ... (Read More)perfect in the car, house broken and has good house manners. He does not have recall so if he darts out the door you are in trouble! This is why he requires a fenced yard. He likes to chase the bunnies and the birdies. Sanchez is PACKED with personality! I mean could he be anymore stinkin' cute? He's got large radar ears that don't flop and is just very busy running around entertaining you! When he does stop, you can find him curled upon a towel or in a cubby hole that you didn't think you had! He loves to hang out under the covers with you if you let him! He's good in cold weather because he is like a little heater! He's so quiet, you could forget he's even there but he will let you know if the doorbell rings! If you crinkle the treat bag, he will come running because he will do anything for food! He will sit for a treat and he will follow treats through the agility tunnel. What an adorable dog! Walks well on the leash, loves car rides and wears a harness without fuss. What a fun little guy!' Email plusdogs@ILDobeRescue.com.

Rescue Me ID: 16-01-15-00505Amber (female)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Sweet little Amber is a Chihuahua mix who was rescued from a high-volume shelter while pregnant, and gave birth to 5 adorable puppies back at the beginning of August. She is now ready for a home of her own. She is about 15 pounds and 4 years old. Amber is the BEST cuddler in the world, she loves to sit on your lap, share a warm blanket with you, and just be pampered. She is also the best greeter when you arrive home. She stands on her hind legs and give you the sweetest little smile to show you how excited she is that you are back at home with her. Amber does have a shy side to her when it comes to meeting new people, therefore she likes to ... (Read More)meet new people at her own pace. When she's ready and feeling a bit more secure, she will warm up to them very quickly and will approach them for some lovin'. Because of her shyness, Amber should not be placed with small children. Amber loves to go for car rides and walks through the neighborhood. She tolerates the other dogs in her foster home, both large and small, but would rather be the only dog. She was a little barky when cat tested.

Rescue Me ID: 16-01-12-00326Stitch (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Stitch is a snuggly, sweet, adorable, loving, dog and people-friendly, seven-pound, five-year-old, male fawn and white, one-eyed, Min Pin/Chihuahua-mix looking for a loving guardian. He is a sweet and lovable little guy who is full of kisses and tail wags. He dances on his hind legs for treats and is housebroken and well-behaved in the home. In fact, his foster mom doesn't feel the need to crate him at all and says he's fine when left home alone. He co-mingles just fine with other dogs in his foster home. Stitch knows the commands 'sit,' 'let's eat,' 'outside' and his name. He walks nicely on leash and loves daily walks! He enjoys being ... (Read More)in your arms, cuddled and kissed. He is wonderful with people - however, he does get frightened if you startle him - since he only has one eye. He is also protective of those he loves, and resource guards select toys and food; positive reinforcement training would benefit him greatly to help him succeed in his new home. For that reason, he is recommended for homes without small children. He is currently fostered in Rogers Park where he lives with two other Chihuahua mixes. Stitch usually sleeps in bed with his foster mom, but sometimes opts for the couch. Stitch is very healthy, de-wormed, neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped, and heartworm-tested. If you are interested in meeting and possibly adopting him, please contact his foster mom Stephanie at stephanie.gradle@gmail.com or 217-273-7238. His adoption fee of $250 benefits the rescued pets of Famous Fido's. (Less)

Chihuahua    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Male Dogs Only, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Vaccinations Current 

    GREETINGS! My name is Madisen, I am a 6 year old full breed Chihuahua female. I am spayed, chipped and current on my shots. I am tan with white paw tips. I'm so cute! As you can see from my photo I am a beautiful girl, and I have the biggest most beautiful brown eyes that you have ever seen on a pup. I am house broken but sometimes I have accidents, and I would like a family that would have a lot of patience with me. I'm not a young pup so sometimes accidents happen, but most times I make it outside. I can be a little feisty at times and sometimes a little bossy but that's just part of my personality but I'm a very happy pup. I get along ... (Read More)great with male dogs......sorry girls but I just aint feelin you! Cats......Well, I'm not feelin them either. They are sooo scary so I tend to chase them all day because I know that they will run from me. I'm not chasing them to hurt them, I just want to play but they don't seem to like how I play so if you have cats I probably wont be the Pawfect fit for your family. I do like kids but I like the older kids around the age of 8 and up because they are old enough to know how to handle me, not to rough. If I'm handled to rough I can get a bit edgy and that's not cool. Let me tell you some of the things I enjoy doing besides chasing cats. I enjoy long car rides, long walks (with the weather permitting) I get cold really quick with two coats on. I enjoy treats (chicken nuggets, my favorite) and my raw-hides and my squeaky toys, which I love squeaking the squeaky in my squeaky toys. I enjoy sleeping in the bed with my human and cuddling up. I enjoy just being a pup! You know... running, playing, barking at other dogs and cats. So, if you would like to schedule a meet and greet with me, learn more about me...yes, there is more to learn about me. Please call my mom at the number on the post and she can answer your questions better than I can. Thanks for your interest in me and I looking forward to hearing from you and meeting you soon!

Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Needs Vaccinations 

    Minnie is the most lovable dog there is. BUT, she will charge towards people she doesn't know, also needs potty training badly, I have not succeeded with her, I hate to get rid of her, and I'll only let her go to someone that knows about chihuahua dogs, I am not willing to just give her to anyone, so you will have to have a good job and a good home for her to live. Also to the lucky person whom gets her, she will need about a week to get to know you, she might even run away from you, definitely will need time for her to adjust before you even get the chance to get close to her.... In the photo she appears to have bad eyes, it's just the ... (Read More)angle, her eyes are fine, no vision troubles.....Just the potty trouble is the main issue. (Less)

Chihuahua    Age: Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered 

    We rescued Billy November, 2014. While a sweet boy, he should be in a house without another dog or cat, like we have. He does not pee the bed when sleeping with you but during the day he has low tolerance to using the outside so we have him in doggie diapers for our convenience. I think if worked with he could become potty trained. He also has a clear preference from my daughter first, husband second my other daughter third and if no one else is around, me. He loves to follow them around and be a part of their day. Some would call that 'needy' I call that adorable. He loves to eat anything sweet: carrots and zucchini...

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 5-6 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 5.7 lbs- which is HUGE! The vet believes her rear ... (Read More)legs were not formed properly from birth, which causes her some challenges when walking. 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. Due to her thin frame we would not recommend her with small children. She does not like to be picked up- we think due to trust ... (Read More)issues, but we are working with her on this. Sophie's adoption fee of $175 goes towards the cost of her vetting.

All dogs are spayed/neutered, current on vaccines, heartworm tested ( as appropriate), fecal tested, and microchipped. (Less)

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)

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.
