Rescue Me ID: 15-02-22-00154Chili (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Hi! My name is Chili! I'm a Dachshund mix, maybe with a little Chihuahua or small breed terrier mixed in. I'm about 1-1.5 years old, male, and am 15-17 pounds. I'm so happy I got rescued from the high intake county kill shelter I was found in! Now I'm livin' it up in foster care, but I'm ready to find a family to call my own! Let me tell you a little about myself! First, my temperament and disposition pretty well rings true to those personality traits most commonly associated with my primary breed, the Dachshund. I'm a big dog trapped in a little dog's body. Spunky, lively and courageous, I'm bold and fearless and have an 'Alpha' type of ... (Read More)personality. I currently live with four other dogs, all of which are larger than me (30-50 pounds), and I love romping and playing games of chase, tug of war, and rough housing with them. I've not been around cats before, so I'd have to meet one before I could tell you how I feel about them. I'm curious about most everything and enjoy playing with toys - some of my favorites are Nylabones, squeaky toys, and those soft fluffy toys they make without the stuffing. I'm also well known for my love of paper products - there is nothing more fun than grabbing the end of a roll of toilet paper roll and taking a trot down the hallway with it! The Dachshund was bred as a hunter of small, burrow dwelling animals, and as such, you can expect me to do a little bit of digging in the yard (don't worry, it's just a little bit here and there). If a yard isn't available, I will gladly dig in a pile of blankets and happily burrow underneath. I also like to burrow under the covers and sleep next to my foster human at night (yes, I know, I'm a bit spoiled!). I would describe myself as an active boy, and I enjoy going to the park and taking leash walks, as well as riding in the car. I'm house broken and crate trained too. Probably the most important thing you should know about me is that I need a forever home that has some patience. I can be a bit stubborn and persistent at times. Like many Dachshunds, I'm very uncertain of unfamiliar people, and that being the case, I will growl and bark at them (I make a great guard dog!). I am NOT aggressive and haven't ever bitten; my growling and barking is just how I react when presented with someone new. We all have our little quirks, and that's one of mine. Laying all the cards on the table here, if we ever get the chance to meet, I will probably even bark at you. But I'm a smart boy and a pretty good judge of character, and with time I will figure out that you're someone that wants to be my friend. And once I understand that you're a friend, you won't find a more loyal, loving and devoted dog than me! I will be yours forever and always! I would be best suited in a home with an active family, a fenced yard or with someone that has the time to take me on nice long walks regularly or to the park for a good run. I would most likely do best in a home with adults only or with older children. I haven't been around young kids much and the sudden movements and noises that young children make may frighten me. On another note, I'm up to date on all of my vaccinations, have been heartworm tested and am current on preventative, am current on flea/tick preventative, have been neutered and microchipped. If you are interested in giving me a loving forever home, The Way Home Rescue Alliance Adoption Process is as follows: - E-mail my foster mom at sarahthewayhome@gmail.com with any questions you have or to request an adoption application. - Complete the adoption application and return it to my foster mom. - Upon review and reference check of the application, my foster mom will get in touch with you to set up a 'meet and greet' and perform a home visit. - As previously mentioned, because I'm wary of new people, the best way to get to know me and for me to get to know you is through a 'foster to adopt' trial period. This means that I would stay with you for a couple of weeks to see if we are a good match before finalizing the adoption. If we are, at the end of the trial period then the adoption contract is signed and adoption fee is paid. If we aren't a good fit, then my foster mom will come and pick me up. Thanks so much for reading about me and considering a rescue dog like me! Happy tail wags - hope to see talk to you soon! (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Chihuahua in Kentucky
    Chihuahua Dogs can make good pets in Kentucky 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.

lnteresting Chihuahua Trivia Low-Cost Kentucky Spay & Neuter Clinics
    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.
