Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Baby! Chihuahua Mix Approx. 3 yrs old 9 lbs 'Nobody puts Baby in the corner!' She is a little bundle of cuddliness! Baby is hoping she can find a family who has someone home most all day because she just loves attention. Baby's idea of a great day is to curl up in a little ball on your lap or next to you, under a blanket of course! Baby also enjoys going for walks and is great on a leash. Baby is a great little girl as she is no trouble when she is in a home. She doesn't get into things she shouldn't and her foster mom leaves her uncrated, even when no one is home. Baby is also potty pad trained which makes things very easy, ... (Read More)especially during those cold winter months!!! Baby loves all people that she meets and gets along great with other dogs and cats! Besides Baby's great personality, she has an ADORABLE little underbite and a snaggle tooth that sometimes appears when she smiles! When Baby was rescued, she was covered with fleas. As a result, she had horrible dermatitis of her skin and some hair loss on her back and near her tail. She has been fully treated by a vet and her hair is growing back, though some areas are still sparse. The vet's predict that her hair will fully fill in, given time and good nutrition! Our standard adoption fee is $295 cash or check and $300 credit card ($5 processing fee). It includes spay/neuter when age appropriate at our participating vets, age appropriate core vaccinations, fecal testing, deworming, flea and tick preventative,1st vet visit at one of our participating vets, and micro-chipping. We must have an application, conduct a phone interview, and meet your entire family to approve an adoption. Please email safehavendogsIL@yahoo.com for an application or additional details. Please note that the breeds and sizes posted in this biography are educated best guesses and are not guaranteed. Please consider becoming a foster home while you search for your new best friend. We need foster homes - pounds are overflowing with puppies and adult dogs that are at-risk and need help. We can only rescue as many as we have foster home commitments. Fostering is a rewarding experience for your family. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-08-12-00093Carlee (female)

Chihuahua    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Carlee is a 2.5 year old chihuahua. She came to us from Chicago Animal Care and Control where she was scared and shut down. Carlee is super affectionate and sweet, she is a gentle soul that has slowly learned to trust again. We are not certain of her past but when Carlee first came to us she was afraid of her own shadow! She has come so far! Carlee loves walks, loves the company of another small dog, and back scratches. Carlee would do best in a home that gives her time to settle in and likely a home with children over 10years old. Carlee loves the neighborhood kids who give her treats but does best with kids that are willing to approach ... (Read More)slowly. Carlee is such a gem and deserve to learn the love of a caring owner. Email us for an application and opportunity to meet Carlee. Bowwowrevolution@gmail.com (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-08-10-00433Rodney (male)

Chihuahua    Age: Adult

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

    Someone ordered a side of tabasco when they made Rodney! This spicy little chihuahua is a perfect mix of affection and feistiness. Rodney is about 6 years old, and yes, his tongue always peeks out of his mouth like that. Rodney came to ACL after being abandoned in a crate in a Walmart parking lot, taken to another high volume shelter, and waiting for many weeks. Long story short: it's been a tough few months for Rodney. Luckily, a loving foster family stepped up to give this tiny stinker a chance at the good life - and he's taking advantage of the opportunity! Rodney's foster family reports that all he wants to do in this world is lay on a ... (Read More)human lap! He spends most of his days cuddled up one whoever is available. He loves to be with people, and he'll follow his foster family up and down the stairs all day long. Rodney is a tiny chihuahua - he only weighs 5 pounds! This size disadvantage came make Rodney a little quicker to get snippy when he's scared than other dogs. If Rodney's adopters are chihuahua people, though, they'll understand that this is all part of the breed - a big personality in a small package! Because of Rodney's sensitivity about his size, he'll do best in a home with kids 12 and up who don't mind making way for little Rod when he's in a mood! Rodney is good with other small dogs who don't mind him being the boss, and he'll likely do well with kitties, too. If you're interested in meeting Rodney, please email Gabrielle at caninemanager@animalcareleague.org to make an appointment. You won't regret it! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-08-10-00414Sammy (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Adult

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

    We hope you like your sweets with a dash of tabasco, because that's Sammy in a nut shell! This absolutely adorable 5 year old Rat Terrier/Chihuahua is a perfect blend of sugar and spice. He arrived at ACL as a very frightened stray, but Sammy has set about winning all our hearts! He's an affectionate, low-key, social little guy who bonds tightly and loves to be cuddled. He'd really love a home with one or two people that want a constant companion to dote upon. Like many of his breed, Sammy tends to get feisty when he's frightened or unsure - it's hard to be a little squirt in a big world! For that reason, Sammy would do best in a home with ... (Read More)small dog experience. If you know what little chichis are like, you'll recognize Sammy's bluster for what it is - nerves. Once Sammy trusts you, he's your for life. He'll do best in an adult home, possibly with another small dog or even cat to hang out with. He'd do fine as an only dog, too, as long as you take him for walks, give him lots of cuddle time, and let him hide under a pillow - his favorite place to be! If you'd like to meet Sammy in person, please email Gabrielle at caninemanager@animalcareleague.org. (Less)

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.

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.

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)

    Sophie is a 7 year old female chihuahua who was surrendered to animal control because her owners could no longer care for her.

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.

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.
