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)

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

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.

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.
