Health: Neutered 

    Remi is a 2 year old male mixed Chihuahua with a docked tail. Don't let first impressions fool you. He is unsure with new people, but given time he will become your personal lap warmer. He loves to cuddle and give plenty of kisses. He is crate trained and potty trained. He is a territory marker; however, he does well with a male wrap. I adopted Remi without knowing he doesn't do well with children. We are planning on having a family and would like to see him in a more suitable home. We are looking for a couple or a single person who don't have plans for children. He loves males and females equally. He does alright with the other dog we have, ...

He doesn't mind being bathed; however he doesn't like being brushed and is sensitive about his nails being clipped. He loves to spend time outdoors and lay in the sun. Remi has a big heart and lots of love to give, he just needs the right home. Please email us for more details. (Less)

Benji is very inquisitive, but will take his time when discovering new things, such as people, objects, or activities. Being a very affectionate dog, he would be an excellent companion for those who enjoy having a pup in their lap or bed at night. He is a cheerful pup and tends to be calmer and more sensitive ...

His adult weight will most likely be around 10-20lbs. Like most active and intelligent breeds, rat terriers are happiest when they receive a great deal of mental stimulation and exercise. He holds true to this and has lots of energy to burn. Tyrion does great with other animals, including his foster sister, a pitbull, and also shares his foster home with a large parrot. He loves to bounce around inside and out. Playing with his toys is his favorite thing to do, as well as ... (Read More)explore the world around him to its fullest. He is a quick learner, and very treat motivated. He is 90% potty trained so will need a bit more time to master his house training. He is a bold boy, and is happy to show you how fearless he is. While having a definite terrier personality, he also has an 'off switch' and loves to lounge with you on the couch or in a lap. Tyrion is an entertaining puppy with the heart of a lion. He is a lively spirit with a smile that will melt your heart. (Less)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adult Women Only 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Needs Vaccinations, Fearful/Anxious 

    Riley is a pretty well behaved dog. We rescued him prior to having our son. He was always a skittish dog due to whatever history he had before us. I believe he was abused due to his skittish nature but have never had any issues with him. Now that our son is a toddler he is more nervous and it has caused him to protect himself. He has bitten due to being scared but I believe there is someone out there for him and that he deserves a good home without kids.

Chihuahua    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Madisen is a 5yr old full breed Chihuahua female. Madi is tan with white paw tips and weighs roughly around 8 lbs. Madi is typically good with adults and seems to not mind being around older kids 8 and up. She hasn't been around any small kids so i'm not sure about her behavior with smaller kids. But Madisens' behavior has improved greatly since we've been together. She is still not too trusting of a lot of people but once she gets to know that you are good people she will give you all the love one pup can give. Madisen is playful and enjoys being outside running and playing. She enjoys her rawhide and squeaky toys and also enjoys long ... (Read More)rides in the car. Madisen enjoys her daily walks. She has lived with cats and gets along well with cats and loves to chase them. She has lived with other dogs as well, male and female but she likes to boss the female dog around but they do get along. At night Madi will sleep in the bed beside you until she see you move or when she see the sunrise. Madi is a very loving and caring pup that loves to cuddle and is a lot of fun, a great joy to have around. She can be a bit bossy and overprotective but that's just part of her personality. And like most dogs she loves a good tummy rub. I am looking for a terrific, loving, caring, compassionate, forever family for my Madi that will love her just as much as i do. Please contact me if you feel you can provide my Madi with a wonderful Chihuahua life. Thank you for your time, Monee' (Less)

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Seizures 

    [Read About Natural Seizure Care] Meet Lucy! She is about 8 yrs old and weighs just over 5 lbs- just a little peanut. We rescued Lucy from a local high kill shelter where she had been abandoned in a cardboard box. Who could do that to their beloved pet? She is currently living in a foster home with several other dogs and she gets along with all. She doesn't really interact with them, but is happy to coexist. She has never once barked or even really cried so she would do well in an apartment/condo type situation. She is pretty well potty pad trained and will also go outside. She isn't much for walks and requires minimal exercise. Her ... (Read More)favorite activities are napping and eating. Lucy was once a very obese little lady, but we monitored her food intake and is now back to her ideal weight. Lucy will need a special home to care for her as she suffers from seizures and hypothyroidism. We just started her on the thyroid meds, so we are hoping that once she is stabilized on that her seizures will dissipate. She will need to be kept on the medication and will need routine blood tests to monitor her health. Her potential owners will need to understand the financial responsibility this will entail and commit to continuing this level of care. She is currently eating a raw diet (Stella and Chewy's) and it was recommended that she stay on this to help with seizure control. Lucy's adoption fee of $150 goes towards the cost of her 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.

Chihuahua    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Fearful/Anxious 

    Meet little Benjamin. He is about 3.5 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, is quiet in the home and is crate trained. He is slow to warm up to new people, but is 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. He is currently living in a foster home where he gets along with the other dogs. He can be possessive over his food and his people, though, so he ...

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.

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.
