    Little Leo is a tiny Chihuahua at 4.9 pounds. He just turned two years old. Leo is a happy, playful dog who is looking for a home that is used to dogs of his tiny size. He likes to be held and snuggled. Leo came to us directly from his previous owners. They decided it was better to find him another home because they had lots of children in and out of their home and it wasn't a safe place for Leo. Leo should be in a home without young children or large dogs. He gets along with other small dogs and would like a play buddy his size. Leo enjoys small stuffed toys and chew toys. He likes to sleep in bed with his people but is also ... (Read More)happy with a dog bed in the room. He is kennel trained and will sometimes go to his open kennel for a nap when he wants to be left alone. Like many Chihuahuas he likes to find the warm places in the home like sunshine coming through a window, a dog bed or curled up in blankets. Leo is up to date on vaccinations, heartworm tested and microchipped. Leo walks well on a leash and should be walked with a harness for his comfort and safety.

Rescue Me ID: 18-06-05-00533Perry (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Perry is a 4 year old Chihuahua. He is a small guy at just 9 pounds. Perry came to us from a shelter in Topeka, Kansas where he was being overlooked by adopters. After a stressful day of transportation he was relieved to be in a home with other Chihuahuas with Chihuahua loving foster parents. We noticed that one of Perry's back legs was not as muscular as the other one. Even though he used it there was something different about it. We took him to the vet and had his rear legs x-rayed. It was pretty clear that his right rear leg had been badly broken some time ago. It looks like it had been broken in three places. It was too late to ... (Read More)fix it because it had calcified back together but twisted. Since he is able to use the leg we were advised to leave it be. It will always be weaker and he should never be allowed to jump from furniture, but he has no problem running around on it. From the look of the break we feel that it was caused at human hands. It is no wonder it takes Perry some time to trust new people. Perry can be a little shy of new people and will be skittish until he knows you. Because of this and his small size his new home should not have children under the age of 12. Perry gets along with other dogs, but for his safety his new home should not have large dogs. His new home will need a fenced area where he can get outside safely while he is adjusting to his new environment. Like most Chihuahuas Perry likes to be burrowed under a blanket or be on a lap. Perry is housetrained and crate trained. Perry is up to date on vaccinations, heartworm tested and microchipped. If you would like to meet Perry, please complete the adoption application on our website at www.furfunrescue.org. If you have questions about Perry you can contact rox@furfunrescue.org or call 319-929-6657. Indoor homes only. Adopters within two hours of Cedar Rapids, IA only, please. Adoption fee is $200.

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Chester is a Chiweenie. That's a combination of Chihuahua and Dachshund. He is 4 years old and weighs 16 pounds. This little guy is a sweetheart. Chester does well with other dogs and would like a home with another dog. He is shy at first but will make his way onto your lap and into your heart in no time. Chester loves to go on walks and does well on a leash. He will prance right along next to you. The Dachshund in Chester means he is vertically challenged. His little legs are too short to be a power walker. He is more the leisurely stroll type of guy. Chester would like a home with a fenced yard so he can safely run and play. He would ... (Read More)not enjoy a home with young children, their level of activity would scare him. Chester is housetrained, up to date on vaccinations, neutered, and microchipped. If you would like to meet Chester, please complete the adoption application on our website: www.furfunrescue.org. If you have questions about Chester you can contact rox@furfunrescue.org or call 319-929-6657. Indoor homes only. Adopters within an two hours of Cedar Rapids, IA only, please. Adoption fee is $200.

Rescue Me ID: 18-05-22-00445Cody (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Senior

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

    This little tiny guy is Cody. He is a 10 year old 8 pound Chihuahua mix. More than anything Cody wants people who can spend time with him. He loves to be held and carried around and is tiny enough to go almost anywhere with his people. He is house and crate trained. Cody came to us all the way from Texas with the volunteer pilots at Pilots N Paws. Cody was found tied to a telephone pole with a retractable leash wrapped around his back leg. The leg had to be amputated because the circulation had been cut off for too long. Cody also needed a dental and doesn't have very many teeth left. Cody has recovered from his surgery and is now ready ... (Read More)to find a home. Cody would like a quiet home with a family that can be watchful and careful because he is so tiny. His forever home should not have large dogs, children, or dogs that could be too rough playing with him. Cody likes playing with dogs his size. He is a typical Chihuahua and loves soft blankets and dog beds to snuggle in. Because Cody is so tiny and only has 3 legs he can't do stairs so he needs a home without stairs or with people willing to carry him. Cody is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, heartworm tested, and microchipped. If you would like to meet Cody, please complete the adoption application on our website: www.furfunrescue.org. If you have questions about Cody you can contact rox@furfunrescue.org or call 319-929-6657. Indoor homes only. Adopters within an hour of Cedar Rapids, IA only, please. Adoption donation $200.

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

    Nona is gentle with the other dogs. She enjoys sharing a dog bed with other dogs. Nona is shy with people. She is nervous about being caught but is not a biter.

Nona is doing great on housetraining and leash training at her temporary home. She has been spayed and her vaccinations are current. Nona does have luxating patellas (knee issues), however, weight loss could be helpful. It is possible that she will need surgery at some time in the future. Nona is a 7 year old long haired Chihuahua. Her adoption fee ... (Read More)is $180.00. Nona can be adopted at http://www.secondchancedogrescueofiowa.com/adoption-app.html Thank you! (Less)

Because Pringles is a little fella, his forever home should not have small children or large dogs. Pringles and his girlfriend Libby were found running together as strays and were taken to a high kill shelter. Dogs aren't even given names there, just numbers. Libby was pregnant. We committed to them to save them ... (Read More)and were ready to move them into a temp foster on Monday until they could be moved north to us.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Chihuahua in Iowa
    Chihuahua Dogs can make good pets in Iowa 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. Though associated with Mexico, Chihuahuas have origins in China.
