Chihuahua    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Low Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Heartworm Positive,
 Abused/Neglected 

    Meet Wendy! Wendy is an 11 yr old chihuahua who weighs about 12 lbs. Wendy came to us from Southern Illinois and tested positive for heartworm. She has been through her treatment, but we need to wait 6 months for her negative test to complete her dental and spay. We are looking for a foster to adopt home that can provide her a quiet environment for her recovery. She is a timid, scared dog who we believe was mistreated in her previous life. She needs an adopter who will allow her to build her trust on her terms. Wendy doesn't have a mean bone in her body, but she can be fearful with handling. She has found a 'safe zone' in her current ... (Read More)foster and spends most of the time in her bed there. As time goes and she gets more comfortable she has slowly ventured out to explore, but it still hasn't been more than about 10 feet from her safe zone. She has gotten comfortable in the fenced yard and loves to run and explore out there. She gets along fine with other dogs, but prefers dogs who don't try to play with her as she gets scared. She is a loving, sweet dog who just needs that special person who will love and care for her unconditionally. Wendy's adoption fee of $200 helps cover the cost of her vet care and heartworm treatment. Application, reference checks, and home visit required. Adopters must live 1.5 hours driving distance from Romeoville, IL. For more information on adopting, please email us at info@perfectpooches.org. 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)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    *MUST LIVE IN 50-MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (A SUBURB OF CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT, NO EXCEPTIONS!* Greetings, friends! My name is Niko, and if you are looking for a playful, affectionate, and handsome little dude to be your sweet companion, you are in luck because I am available for adoption through Fetching Tails Foundation! I am a 5-year-old chihuahua mix, with an emphasis on mix because at about 20 pounds I am bigger than your average chi friend! I have soft beige fur, and when I am happy my tail curls upwards and waves like a flag! And if I could be so vain for a moment, I really have the cutest face, too: my perky ears ... (Read More)are often at attention so I can hear you tell me what a good boy I am, and I love to gaze happily at my favorite people with my big soulful eyes. Fetching Tails Foundation saved me from Chicago Animal Care & Control, where I was brought as a stray. When my previous family never came to claim me, my friends from Fetching Tails swooped in to save my life because the shelter was not my favorite place. I have been hanging out in a comfortable foster home, which I much prefer! Some of my favorite pastimes in my foster home include going for long strolls around the neighborhood and playing with all my favorite toys. When I am all done playing, I love to snuggle and cuddle with foster momma on the couch; when she stops petting me I gently nudge her with my nose or wrap my paws around her hand to remind her that my back still needs a massage! I think I would prefer a quieter home with no small children; I like a relaxed, peaceful home where I can do my own thing and cuddle with the people I love most. I think it would be fun to have a fenced yard to play in at my forever home, but would also be fine without one as long as we go on lots of walkies together. I also think I would prefer to be your one and only canine companion since I prefer your attention for myself. I currently live with kitty cats, though, and do fine with them. We mostly ignore each other completely and occasionally sleep near each other on the couch! I have pretty amazing house manners, I could brag again. I am totally potty and crate trained: I sleep in my crate overnight with no issues or fussing. I also do fine if left home alone uncrated and am happy to settle on the couch or a dog bed for a rest while foster mommy is at work. I am a sweet gentleman and only chew on my greenie treats, and don't beg for people food! I am a calm, sweet, loving little guy and all I am missing is a forever family to call my own. If you think I could be the dream pup for you, please get in touch with my friends at Fetching Tails soon and tell them Niko sent you! Love, Niko ADOPTION REQUIREMENTS, NO EXCEPTIONS: *ADOPTION FEE: $250 *Be at least 21 years of age *Live in a 50-mile radius of Itasca, within the Illinois border *Have the knowledge and agreement of all adults living in the household *Have approval from owner of residence (written in lease) *Have a valid ID with current address (please provide proof of address if ID address is not up-to-date) *Be approved as a suitable adoptive home by Fetching Tails Foundation *Be prepared to make a lifetime commitment If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org; please make sure you fill in every required field/question or your submission will not go through.

Rescue Me ID: 17-02-23-00221Alfie (male)

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: 16-12-14-00060Biscuit (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Biscuit is a chihuahua mix who is about 2 yrs old and weighs about 9 lbs. He is a special boy who takes some time to warm up to new people, but once you gain his trust he will be your sidekick and shadow. He loves to give kisses and likes to be held as well as cuddling on the couch and the bed is even better. Walking him on a leash is like trying to walk a fish out of water, but his foster continues to work on this with him. For this reason, we would like to place him in a home with a fenced in yard. His housetraining is a work in progress. He will need a very patient family who will spend the time to build his confidence, work on ... (Read More)life skills, and expose him to new things in a positive manner. He cannot currently do stairs and seems to have some rear leg muscle atrophy. We are looking for a quiet, all-adult home for little Biscuit. His adoption donation of $250 helps cover the cost of his vetting and care. Application, reference checks, and home visit required. Adopters must live 1.5 hours driving distance from Romeoville, IL. For more information on adopting, please email us at info@perfectpooches.org. 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.

    Burrito is a handsome, sweet and loving, four-to five-year-old, 12-pound, male Chihuahua-mix looking for a loving guardian. Sadly, Burrito's owner dropped him off at Chicago Animal Care and Control when he could no longer care for him. He's not big on other animals. His favorite companion is his person. He prefers not to be picked up by strangers, but once he knows you, he loves you. Burrito is an affectionate and adoring lap dog. He's best in a home without small children. His adoption fee of $250 benefits the rescued dogs of Famous Fido. He is up-to-date on vaccinations and will be neutered and micro-chipped upon adoption. To meet ...

Chihuahua    Age: Young Adult

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

    Meet Qbert! He is a 2 year old male chihuahua who weighs just under 5 lbs who is in search for a special adopter to care for him. He was surrendered to animal control by his previous owners because they were moving and couldn't take him. We believe he may have been a survivor of distemper, which has left him with some neurological deficits. He gait and coordination is abnormal and we think he has limited vision. Despite that he is sweet, responsive to touch and he tries to run and play. He can get overstimulated with too much touch and can become overwhelmed. For this reason we think he should be adopted to an all adult household. He ... (Read More)has the softest plush fur and he coexists with other dogs and does fine with cats. Are you that special person who is willing to care for a special needs dog? Qbert's adoption donation is $150. For more information, please contact us at info@perfectpooches.org. 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: 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 Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet little Benjamin. He is about 8 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.

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.
