Chihuahua    Age: Puppy

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

    Apollo is a 1 year old chihuahua. Apollo is listed as a Olympian in greek mythology and was known to be super athletic... well this name sake has many similar traits. Despite is smaller stature, Apollo loves play and we think he would make a great buddy to a furbaby. Apollo is shy at first and takes a few minutes to warm up. He is great with dogs that respect his size and he does not mind the company of a cat. Apollo is house trained and crate trained, and when the weather permits ... he does love to run around the yard. Like most chihuahuas, Apollo loves his covers and can make a great companion for movie nights! To meet Apollo, email ... (Read More)bowwowrevolution@gmail.com (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 18-04-18-00466Ellie (female)

Chihuahua    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Deaf 

    Ellie is a female Long Hair Chihuahua born on June 14, 2017. This sweet little girl is deaf. Deaf dogs are not hard to train they just need to be trained in a different way. She will need a family that is willing to take the time to train her with hand movements. Because she is deaf, she will need a physical fence yard or will only be allowed out on a harness and leash. Young children move rapidly in random directions, frequently waving their arms, yelling, crying, or making other faces. To the deaf dog, this body language can be misinterpreted as anger or an attack and for this reason, Ellie will not be adopted to a family with small ... (Read More)children. Ellie relies on other dogs in the foster home so she would do best with another small dog in the home. She has been spayed, microchip, bordetella, UTD on shots including rabies and current on flea/heartworm preventative. If interested in adopting Ellie, please complete and return an application for consideration found on our website www.gateway4paw.org. Only completed applications will be considered for adoptions. Since we are 100% foster based rescue, only approved applications will be contacted to set up a meet and greet with the fur baby. We do not allow shipping and do not transport so you must be able to drive to O'Fallon/Edwardsville, Illinois area for meet and greet/adoption. All questions should be emailed to gateway4paws@gmail.com (Less)

She has improved and her foster family can tell when she needs to go out. Carmen does not love her crate but is kept in it when her foster family is not home. She would prefer to sleep with her family if that is an option. She also would do best in a home where someone is there most of the time.

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Can you believe this handsome young fella was given up to a shelter by the one and only family he had ever known because they were moving? Not only that but they were OK with him being euthanized!! Thankfully the shelter works hard to get dogs and cats and other critters into an adoption floor or a rescue to help them fine their way to a loving family. We were more than happy to take this little goober in, he is such a happy boy and fit in so well with our little crew. Todd is about 4 years old and maybe 8-9 pounds. His family had him accustomed to eating table food so he is a bit hesitant to eat what we are serving our four footed guests. ... (Read More)But I cook for them also, who wants to eat boring kibble day after day? This week they had a stew of kale, broccoli, rice and mackerel. All healthy ingredients, and pretty cheap as well! Todd has loved running and playing with the other dogs and is thrilled to out enjoying the fresh air and exploring the yard. He has been very affectionate with us, seeks attention and is a little wiggle butt. BUT--we are told he does NOT like to be picked up. No problem, we do not pick him up. He acts like he wants to sit in our laps, but no rush here. We want him to feel totally comfortable before we go that far. That is a common mistake we see in visitors, so often they want to love on the dogs asap(of course!) but as much as you have the best of intentions that fearful dog that has been in a shelter or rescue situation does not quite understand that right away. Best to keep your hugging and face to face greeting for much further along in the relationship. Todd is very well mannered and appears totally housebroken. Naturally we take him out very frequently so he can get used to our doors, yard and schedule. He has been a delight but will need a family willing that understands this has all been confusing for him and he just needs some time to figure out who you are and what is going on.

Rescue Me ID: 18-03-24-00017Whittaker (male)

Chihuahua    Age: Adult

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

    Meet Whittaker! He is guessed to be about 6 yrs old and weighs about 4.5 lbs. He came to us from Animal Rescue Corps where he was confiscated from a breeder for living in very poor conditions. He is a super sweet boy that just LOVES other dogs. Due to his background we don't think he had much human contact, so he is still pretty shy with human handling and oftentimes will submissive pee when trying to pick him up. Poor guy :( He would do great with an adopter who is willing to work on boosting his confidence through positive experiences and possibly training or sports like canine nosework. We think he would do best in an all adult ... (Read More)home, or one with children over 13 yrs. old. We would love to see him go to a home with another dog who can be his friend and playmate. Whittaker's adoption donation is $250. 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)

He also likes to cuddle them, though at times those long legs get in the way!! Appointments to visit him will be set up for approved adopters only.

This scruffy fellow originally came to Pal's Place rescue in 2011 when he was a 3 month old puppy with his 3 littermates when homes could not be found for them. He was quickly adopted but we received a call this month that he had been turned into animal control with another Chihuahua by his adopter when she could no longer care for him. Thankfully they scanned his microchip and realized he came from our rescue so they gave us a call and we picked him up right away! Biggie can be a little timid when meeting new people but he warms up quickly. He is a ... (Read More)super affectionate and cuddly guy that loves being close to his people and snuggling up under blankets in bed. He's quiet and well behaved in the home, but like many tiny dogs, he does need to be watched with his housebreaking and needs frequent potty breaks. He is crate trained. Biggs is being fostered with a Doberman and enjoys the company of his foster brother. A DNA test was performed on one of the littermates a few years back and it can back showing a mix of Chihuahua and Chinese Crested!

Biggie is currently being fostered on Chicago's north side and can be seen by appointment once an application has been received.

My name is Romo, and I am a super handsome, super sweet little fellow who is looking for a forever home through Fetching Tails Foundation! Could that be with you? I am a 5-year-old chihuahua/pug mix, and at 15 pounds I am the perfect size to snuggle up next to you for long cuddle sessions. I must say, I am quite the looker: I have lovely light tan fur, and my silly little underbite will keep you laughing every time I smile! My friends from Fetching Tails saved me from Chicago Animal Care & Control, where my previous ... (Read More)owners brought me when they could no longer take care of me. I am a happy-go-lucky guy and am loving all the attention I get in my foster home! I love attention and affection, and am happiest with my favorite people by my side. I have a well-balanced energy level and enjoy both playtime (I love a good game of fetch!) and snuggle time. But my most favorite activity in the world is going for a nice long walk with foster mommy so I can explore the world and leave my mark on every tree and fire hydrant! I get along with other pups, though I prefer little doggies like me, and I even currently live with kitty cats. I am very curious about them, but we mostly get along. My favorite roommates, though, are the human kiddos in the house. I would choose to hang out with them over anyone else! I just love being around them so much, so I would do great in a forever home with children. I have pretty good house manners, too, and am learning more all the time! I am crate trained and potty trained. I know to do my business outside, but I might occasionally try to mark inside. When I try it, my foster parents redirect my attention; with continued practice and patience in my forever home, I will get over this little habit! I am comfortable resting in my crate while my foster family is at work, but would prefer for someone to be home more often than not because I just love attention so much and am much happier being by your side! I will even tap you on the arm with my paw if it is time for a petting break. Isn't that adorable? If you think I could be the cute, loyal, loving dude for you, please get in touch with my Fetching Tails friends soon so we can start our happily ever after together!

Chihuahua    Age: Senior

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

    Meet Libby! Libby is a 12 yr old, 5.7 lb, toothless chihuahua who is looking for her forever home. Libby is a sweet little lady whose favorite pastimes are burrowing under blankets and being pet. She does great with potty training- either pottying outside or on pee pads. She is quiet in the home, low key, and does well on a leash - so she would be a great candidate for condo living. Libby gets along with other dogs, both large and small, but she does like her personal space. Libby had surgery to remove some pre-cancerous mammary growths and has been given a clean bill of health, but she will need to be monitored for any new growths ... (Read More)in the future. When we got Libby she had not been using her rear right leg due to what our vet believes was an old soft tissue injury. We currently have her in physical therapy to help her regain use of her leg. Libby gets along with people very well, but due to her mobility situation we would like to see her placed in home without small children. We have not ever seen her around cats yet. Libby's adoption donation of $175 helps to cover the cost of her medical care, which included her vaccinations, heartworm testing, microchip, dental, spay, growth removals, biopsy and preliminary physical therapy. For more information on Libby contact us at info@perfectpooches.org. We prefer applicants live within a 1.5 hour driving distance from Romeoville, IL. Adoptions outside of that geographical radius may be considered on a case-by-case basis, but the adoption process usually takes longer to complete. We do not ship dogs and we do not do same day adoptions. Application, reference checks, and home visit required. 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)

    Oh Pepper. Let's turn our attention to sweet, sweet Pepper who was just passed around like nothing. We adore him at Famous Fido, he was originally with us for about 1 year, he was adopted out to what we thought would be a good family (a veterinarian) just to learn a few months later, they surrendered him to a suburban kill shelter. Going against what is asked of them during the adoption process. Instead of alerting us of an issue or reaching out they instead decided to sign off on this beautiful little innocent life. We are thrilled that Pepper is back with us, thanks to his microchip and out of the arms of those people.Pepper has now been ... (Read More)back a month or two and while he's a good boy, always, he's getting bored at the Rescue and really wants a forever family. One that won't give up on him or drop him off to be killed.

He is however quite high energy and playful when outside with someone he trusts,even though he's a bit older. Not senior but older adult. Likely around 7 or 8yo and has been in atleast 2 homes and rescue twice now. Who will take in this pup, for the rest of his life and show him what true love is? Pepper does guard his toys, according to his surrender paperwork, but this is something that can be fixed with training. We have yet to see this behavior at the Rescue,with toys. Please share share share this face!He appears to be Chihuahua but he's bigger than an average Chihuahua, probably 12lbs or so.... he's not as teeny as chis are... (Less)

    Doug and Susan are a pair of adorable yet shy one-year-old rat terrier siblings looking for a loving guardian. We don't what kind of situation Doug and Susan came from, but they are much more trusting of other dogs than they are of people. Doug is nine pounds and Susan is only seven pounds. They were turned into Chicago Animal Care and Control by their family. I'm assuming the family had a lot of dogs and didn't spend much time socialized them with people. So, Doug and Susan are looking for a patient dog-lover to take them under their wing for training to boost their confidence and a lot of love. They groom each other, snuggle together, and ...

Peaches is a one-year-old, 10-pound female Chihuahua, and Petey is an 18-month-old, 62-pound male pit bull.

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Nellie! She is an adult (maybe 7-8 yr old) female chihuahua who weighs about 5.5 lbs. She is a spunky gal who gets along with other dogs, but she has a pretty 'in your face' approach with other dogs, so she would do best with a non-reactive dog who will tolerate her socialization style. She is doing great with crate training and if taken outside immediately she has been doing good about going outside. She will need someone who will be patient with her as she perfects her bathroom skills. Nellie doesn't like to be picked up and held, but she does like to lay with you on the couch and give you kisses. She is missing most of her teeth, as ...

Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Fearful/Anxious 

    Biscuit is a chihuahua mix who is about 3 yrs old and weighs about 9 lbs. He is a special boy who takes time to warm up to new people and is very fearful in new situations, but once you gain his trust he will be your sidekick and shadow. He loves to give kisses and likes to cuddle on the couch - the bed is even better! We would like to place him in a home with a fenced in yard, but we are open to considering other living circumstances. Our vet believes that Biscuit was born with some brain damage, which causes his gait and coordination to be off. He has difficulty doing stairs, but he can navigate 1 and he has had some success going ... (Read More)up 4-5 stairs (not down, though). He also cannot jump on or off furniture. He doesn't like being away from his person and has been known to bark or cry when separated, but we have had some success at crate training while his foster mom is at work. He will need a very patient adopter who will spend the time to build his confidence, work on life skills, and expose him to new things in a positive manner. 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.

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. ...

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.

    Some Chihuahuas are so small they can stand upright in a person's hand. Chihuahuas are the smallest dog breed in the world. Chihuahuas were the oldest breed on the North American continent. Though associated with Mexico, Chihuahuas have origins in China.
